in the garden of the four seasons

After an extremely hot week in New York (even the evenings were in the 90s), we finally got a much needed break on the heatwave; this put New Yorkers in a great mood last Sunday. By coincidence, I was invited to the landmarked Four Seasons New York for a brunch that day.

Olive Oil Financier w Caponata Jam

Caponata is a classic Sicilian dish that I have come to adore because of my love for sweet and sour dishes. (See my gushing over Sweet n Sour Pork in my previous post.)

Cilantro has many health benefits, including lowering blood sugar, protecting against infections, and […]

Spring Garlic Soup

Spring produce at the Farmer’s Market is seductive. It delivers flavors with delicate textures, subtle sweetness, and a tease of promises for the rest of the season. It awakens your palette and overtakes all of your senses. Still, it retains shyness–like a child who sings with a big adult voice but remains a youngster. Young […]

the left coast- part 3 ….. foggy city and beyond

March 26, 2010

We woke up to a  foggy Thursday morning in hilly Hillsborough, just south of San Francisco that could have induced  laziness if we didn’t have such important work ahead.  (The town is named after the coffee family, not the terrain.)
