Cook: Tomate El Pan and Cream of Roasted Bell Pepper Soup

Have you seen that commercial for a major insurance company where a guy is chatting with an agent early in the morning and his wife comes down from bed and thinks she catches him getting his hanky panky on? Well something very similar happened to me last week. I was flipping through Village Voice’s Hundred Favorite Dishes and came across the Pan Con Tomate from Casa Mono. It was […]

Food Flavored Album Review: We Were Promised Jetpacks’ Unravelling

We Were Promised Jetpacks brand new album Unravelling (comes out tomorrow via FatCat) sounds a lot like a Baked Apple Cider Donut with Pomegranate Glaze. At their essence, these donuts are so much more complex than the typical sugary “breakfast” snacks that are sold in stores. They are an ideal blend of sweet, sour, spicy and sharp. Unravelling is a lot like that. Unlike its predecessors, These Four […]

Cook: Firecracker Tofu Over Vegetable Fried Rice

Firecracker Tofu. I’d like to say that this dish came from somewhere cool like a llama raising shepherd I met at Chuck E. Cheese or a Vegan glass blower making stained glass windows for St. Micheal’s Cathedral. Unfortunately it came from somewhere darker. An absolute obsession that nearly broke J-Fur and I up. The story goes like this: After graduating from college and hanging around Chicago […]

Cook: Radish and Pesto Crostini

I don’t mean to be such a humble bragger but I was contacted a few week’s ago by the National Radish Council for a bit of an impossible mission. The council had mistakenly been commissioned by the United States government to try and improve relationships between Mexico and the US. They tried to give the money back insisting that they were just a vegetable and […]

Cook: Tamari-Lime Tempeh and Rice with Edmame and Corn

“…the whole shebang owes less to Murphy’s LCD Soundsystem than to Vampire Weekend, from whom Win Butler and co. most likely learned to use their passport stamps as musical inspiration without coming across (well, to most people, anyway) as craven imperialist marauders. (You gotta admit that syncing their full-album, pre-release-stream lyric video to the 1959 Brazilian flick Black Orpheus is some impressively zealous trolling.)” -Rob […]

Cook: Artichoke Po’ Girl Sandwich with Roasted Red Pepper Remoulade

Z-Bot curled up on my lap the other night, turned her little blue eyes towards my face and gave me the look. Anyone who is a parent knows exactly what I’m talking about when I say the look. It is that moment when your child asks, without uttering a sound, for you to tell them a good story. I bit into my latest creation, a […]

Cook: Tempura Sweet Potato Sushi

I noticed the barfly as soon as we walked in to our favorite sushi laboratory. He was sitting at the counter ogling the sushi rolls that the bandanna clad chef was furiously preparing. The counter man was rather non distinct (middle aged, chubby and balding a bit) except for the creepy handlebar mustache that adorned his upper lip. That thing was totally uncalled for in the kind […]

Cook: Beet Ravioli

One of my most vivid memories from the preteen era of my life is gallivanting through the metropolis of Newville, Pennsylvania with a large spray paint can in hand. On any surface I could find, and there were like five buildings in Newville so I had quite a selection, I painted my favorite slogan, “You don’t turn your back on one of your own” (yes Mister Policeman, I did […]
