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 […]

Cook: Salvadoran Pupusa

Every country seems to have their own version of dough stuffed with a combination of veggies, meat and/or cheese. Mexico has the gordita. Italy has the calzone. Arepas can be found in Panama, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Colombia and Venezuela. In the US, we have…uh, Hot Pockets? The Salvadoran version is called a Pupusa. If I am remembering my high school Uto-Aztecan language class correctly “Pupusa” means octopus. […]

Food Pairing 101: What Goes With Veganomicon’s Baked Potato and Greens Soup?

Scene 1 The kitchen. Tender Branson enters from the left side. He is visibly agitated and vigorously waving his hand in front of his noise. Tender: Good goddamn man. Why does it smell like fish in here? I’m going to have to remedy that. Tender shuffles around in some cabinets and pulls out a big pot. He grabs a copy of Veganomicon from his bookshelf and then […]

Cook: Curried Quinoa and Tomato Stew

Sometime in the mid-2000’s people began expelling their former lover gluten from the bedroom. They were sick and tired of the name calling, the fat jokes and the physical swelling of their belly (gluten seems to become physical when it gets angry). While still recovering from the break-up, the complete protein of quinoa stealthily began seducing everyone hoping to take gluten’s place. It worked. Now, despite the fact […]

Cook: Fennel Fritter with “Bacon” and Ranch Dressing

What a weird Saturday. There I am lazing about on the couch watching Steve Harvey make a mockery of my favorite game show from my childhood, Family Feud, when I took a bite of my vegan curds and whey. Just as the two battling families were about to try their hand at putting themselves in the shoes of a hundred random Americans I passed out. […]
