  • SCOBY Mar 24, 2015 5:00 AM
    Kombucha is a fermented tea that, when taken through a second fermentation stage, becomes effervescent. Though it can be odd-looking but it's tasty, tart and slightly sweet. It doesn’t taste like tea; think lambic-style beer meets yogurt. Here's how to make it at home.

  • Here’s to kombucha, the grow-your-own tea that swims well with spirits Mar 24, 2015 5:00 AM
    Questions about the wisdom of our ancestors’ culinary choices returned the first time M. Carrie Allan tried kombucha. He knew that the drink was based on very old food traditions and he'd heard health-conscious friends extol its virtues, claiming it had re-energized them, given them the skin and hair of youth, mitigated their digestive ills, baby-sat for their children and cured them of every ailment save perhaps the tendency toward hyperbole. Still, it didn't look like anything anyone would want to drink. Ever.

     
  • From the food editor: Social media-driven culinary mashup a delicious experiment Mar 25, 2015 3:27 PM
    The folks at the National Pork Board were curious too what Americans were talking about (virtually speaking, of course) and wondered what makes up the ultimate American meal. So in conjunction with digital analytics from Crimson Hexagon's ForSight tool, they analyzed more than 30 million social media posts across our 50 states for a year (ending Nov. 30, 2014) and found that nearly half of socially shared food content included smoked (bacon!), hot and spicy flavors paired with popular proteins.

     
  • Canned confession: Artichokes with a pop-top work for me Mar 24, 2015 5:00 AM
    Wirter Regina Schrambling was flipping through David Lebovitz’s “My Paris Kitchen” and nearly dropped the drool-inducing cookbook when she saw that the first of his three tapenade recipes called for canned artichokes. If they were good enough for a Chez Panisse pioneer now living in Fresh Artichoke Central, they were worth a try here in the land of out-of-season/crazily pricey/prep-heavy fresh artichokes.

  • In Napa, some moving toward a more restrained wine Mar 21, 2015 7:00 AM
    While over-the-top defines Napa Valley, many winemakers are talking restraint. Many winemakers said they are moving toward a more restrained, classical style of wine with moderate alcohol, the style that made Napa famous in the 1970s, and away from the fruit-forward blockbuster cult wines popular in the 1990s and 2000s.

  • Prune and Turnip Tagine Mar 18, 2015 2:37 PM
    Long before the slow cooker, there was the tagine: a clay cooking vessel from northern Africa whose conical lid promotes condensation and moisture retention, bathing the stew inside (also called a tagine) with steam and coaxing its ingredients to silky tenderness. Try Prune and Turnip Tagine in a tagine or Dutch oven.

    KitchenAid is getting into the market for the best appliance you’ve never heard of. The Thermomix is a food processor/blender that also has a heating element and a scale. Sounds crazy, I know, but it’s amazing. It consolidates multiple kitchen jobs into a single countertop appliance and it renders a lot of tedious kitchen tasks as easy as pressing a few buttons.
