Asian Slaw with Ponzu Dressing

Asian-ponzu-slaw-recipe-9578.jpg

When I think of a summer slaw to go with the barbeque, I want something light, tangy, cold and crunchy. Traditional coleslaw just doesn’t do it – its heavy mayonnaise dressing really weighs down the vegetables. Instead of a mayo-based dressing, my Asian slaw is made with a bright, citrusy ponzu sauce – one of the most versatile Asian sauces …

Rosemary Garlic Steak

I’ve been fortunate in my life to meet some of the greatest people who have influenced food in a major way, from television chefs like Martin Yan to cooking greats like Jacques Pepin. But the person who I’ve enjoyed meeting the most is Marcella Hazan, who happens to live here in Florida. (read about when I first met Marcella and …

Steak with Whiskey Mushroom Sauce

steak-mushroom-whisky-sauce-9200

For our family, if there ever was a PERFECT cut of steak, it would be the bad-boy Porterhouse steak. It’s big. It’s massive. One giant hunk will feed our family of four. But before I get into our love for Porterhouse (because I’ll get carried away and will forget about anything else I was supposed to tell you), a word …

A couple of weeks ago, I hosted my buddy Hank Shaw of the award-winning Hunter Gardener Angler Cook at our home and hit 2 out of the 4 activities from his blog name: fishing and cooking. If you must know why those 2 specific activities, our garden is winding down for its summer rest and hunting involves either a gun, …

Fried Smelt

Fried Smelt Recipe - final dish

In a previous life, I used to work for a giant booze company. I used to commute between my home in the San Francisco (which was only 7 miles away from the office but took 40 minutes to drive sometimes) to the office near the Embarcadero or to the winery in Napa Valley in my little beloved 2-seater fancy pantsy …

Skirt Steak Tacos

skirt-steak-tacos-recipe - final

I’ve discovered that I’m not the only one who’s fiercely loyal to their local supermarkets. While some are loyal to a particular market because it’s convenient (close to house or office), I’m more influenced by the quality of two things: produce and meat (though my kids will argue that for them, it’s the variety of ice Creams and the breadth …

Baby Artichokes with Garlic and Tomatoes

baby-artichokes-tomatoes-recipe-8808.jpg

  But don’t be fooled by the name “baby artichoke” as they’re not “baby” or “immature” artichoke at all. An artichoke plant will sprout several regular sized artichokes near the top of the plant and much smaller ones near the bottom of the plant, which are labeled as “baby artichokes.” Clever marketing, eh? The smaller artichokes have the same flavor the …
