Food article: Far From Eggs & Bacon: Meet the Japanese-Style Breakfast

Food article: Far From Eggs & Bacon: Meet the Japanese-Style Breakfast

In the US, it’s so easy to think of breakfast as cereal and sweet, or protein-heavy and greasy. But the Japanese really know how to do an amazing breakfast. Combined with my own past travels to Japan, I learned so much writing this article about the many options comprising a Japanese breakfast.

Honey, soup & soda: 3 new food articles

Part of what I love about living in Eugene, Oregon, is the number of dedicated folks who make amazing and tasty things. For the late-summer edition of Tastings, from local newspaper The Register-Guard, I got to visit a local honey producer, delve into the world of craft sodas that craft breweries make, and cool off with the ins and outs of chilled soups (and why you don’t call them cold).

Honey: The Queen’s Bounty honeys are pure Oregon gold

Soup: Slurp soup to beat heat?

Soda: Eugene brewers add fizz-ness to their business




Cooking: Milk Street

Milk Street

As you know, I love to cook. Writing is my vocation—but cooking is my avocation. It’s my hobby. With all the intangible work that I do, I find that cooking grounds me, gives me a daily tangible that I can do.

The past couple of years, I’ve also gotten hooked on a new cooking resource. Founded by Christopher Kimball, formerly of Cook’s Illustrated and America’s Test Kitchen, Milk Street’s magazine, website, TV show, and podcast have become some of my dearest cooking companions.

Kimball’s goal is to listen to cooks from cultures all over the world. Seriously. I’ve learned more about cuisines from Africa—Ghana, Senegal Ethiopia—than I ever knew before. Yet Milk Street’s focus isn’t on glitz and complication. Milk Street knows that everyone is just trying to get dinner on the table, and we can all learn from one another.

Check it out. I can’t wait to hear what’s cooking in your kitchen!

Book Pick: Every Grain of Rice

After hearing Fuchsia Dunlop during interviews on some of my fave food podcasts, I had to check out her book. In the US, it can be easy to think of Chinese food as heavy or complex, not really the stuff of everyday home cooking. And that’s what I like about Fuchsia’s approach here: She reminds us that Chinese food is the epitome of everyday cooking. Simple dishes. Lots of vegetables. Great flavor. I’ve been enjoying reading through this and making some of the recipes. It’s great stuff. If you’ve wanted to demystify Chinese-style cooking for your own kitchen, Every Grain of Rice is a great place to start.
