Cook the Book: Blackberry and Summer Apple Pie

Tart, seedy little blackberries are mixed with slices of crisp apple and baked in a crumbly, lightly sweet cornmeal crust. It's that great sort of juicy, oozy pie where the filling leaks out, making for little bits of caramelized crust around the edges. Since the crust has a bit of sugar in it you can hold back on oversweetening the filling and give the berries and apples a chance to cook down and release their natural sugar More

Cook the Book: Asparagus with Butter and Soy

One Ring Zero's Recipe Music Project

[Image: orzrecipeproject.tumblr.com] Michael Hearst of the band One Ring Zero has already demonstrated his skills for mixing food and music in his Songs for Ice Cream Trucks album. Now he's jamming about chefs' favorite recipes. If you're into the edgier rock stuff, go with Chris Cosentino's Brain and Eggs and for more Bohemian polka-esque sounds, try Mario Batali's Spaghetti with Sweet 100 Tomatoes. The lyrics are not trying to rhyme or be too soulful—it's just the recipe verbatim, which is pretty awesome. Not enough lyrics involve "use small, firm organic pumpkins or winter squashes."
