  • Farmer and chef shares insights with home cooks Dec 28, 2014 6:01 AM

He has gone well beyond the small vanity gardens some restaurateurs grow in order to claim a farm-to-table ethos.

  • Soupalooza: Black-eyed peas soup boosts heath, good luck in New Year Dec 28, 2014 6:01 AM
    M. Eileen Brown stumbled onto a recipe or story about the Southern tradition of eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day for good luck and became intrigued. After all, who doesn’t want a little extra good luck — especially when it involves eating something so obviously good for you?

They are high in iron and fiber and a ½ cup serving of cooked black-eyed peas counts as one ounce of lean meat.

I settled on passion fruit because similar to white peaches it is both delicate and intensely aromatic.

    Battle lines are being drawn and they cut right down the dinner table. For if there was any theme to the food world in 2014, it was the prevalence of polarizing issues. Whether we were tussling over genetically modified organisms, or debating how healthy is too healthy for school lunches, or scolding one another for our gluten choices, this year our collective culinary consciousness seemed mired in disputes.

  • A medical student learns an important lesson when she becomes a patient Dec 28, 2014 7:01 AM
