  • Is there a food or food product that you remember from your childhood with great fondness? Have you ever revisited that food in the hopes that the taste satisfaction would match your memory of it? Did it?
  • Here is the recipe for broccoli and Cheetos from chef Craig Koketsu of Park Avenue restaurant in Manhattan.
  • Apples are the Everyman of fruit. They are inexpensive, available year round, and readily accessible. Delicious on their own, they are exceptionally versatile in sweet or savory recipes.
  • Applesauce

    Let’s start with the simplest recipe, applesauce. You can leave out the butter, but it does give it a nice, rich consistency. 

    Serves eight.

    2 lbs. tart apples, such as Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and chopped

    1/4 cup or more to taste, granulated sugar

  • A warren of small rooms has been opened up and lightened. The floors and trim are dark, the walls off-white, and there are a few hints that this location was, in fact, once a service station, such as the old-fashioned bell hose outside that gives a little “ding ding” when you drive over it.
  • Your mind may already be turning to pumpkins and apples this time of year (or mush, depending on how busy your summer was), but it’s time to get to work. If you want to save some of the glorious corn, tomatoes, herbs, and more to enjoy throughout the winter, you need to get cracking.

  • There is something about a small, cozy restaurant that creates an atmosphere of jollity and camaraderie. Estia’s Little Kitchen is such a place.
  • Cooking 101
  • It’s that time of year. Perhaps you are sending a daughter or son off to college, or in my case, helping a son set up his first singleton apartment. Hopefully, by now, you have taught your offspring one of the most important life skills: how to cook for his or herself. If you haven’t, woe be to those children, for they will be eating Domino’s pizza and Subway sandwiches and bagels from the cafeteria.
