'Weekend Giveaway' on Serious Eats
The Sterns have been seeking out the best in sleeves-up dining since the '70s, traveling coast to coast and back again, seeking out regional American specialties from fried chicken and lobster rolls to lesser-knowns like hangover-curing New Orleans yakamein and Mennonite-German-Russian bierocks from Kansas. They've released a revised and expanded edition of Roadfood. Enter to win a copy here!
Have you ever found yourself with an unexpected group of hungry guests and nothing planned for lunch? Well, you're not alone. Actress, country singer, blogger and new cookbook author Gwyneth Paltrow has found herself in the very same situation, proving that even celebrities find themselves in awkward spots. These Grilled Tuna Rolls from My Father's Daughter came into being as an impromptu summer lunch, when Paltrow found herself having to feed a crowd with just a few tuna steaks and a bag of hot dog buns on hand.
Last week Ed was invited to a cookbook launch party for Gwyneth Paltrow's My Father's Daughter. In attendance were none other than Jay-Z, Jerry Seinfeld, and Alex Rodriguez of New York Yankees fame. Great set of friends, right? When asked about the food, though, Ed mentioned that the Duck Ragu was quite good, which made me want to investigate this recipe for myself.
In short, the answer is yes. Celebrity aside, My Father's Daughter is filled with really wonderful recipes—healthy, for the most part, but largely accessible, everyday food that most of us would be more than happy to enjoy.
Mark Bittman's latest, The Food Matters Cookbook, is all about conscious and responsible eating. In an effort to eat better both for personal health and the health of the planet, The Food Matters Cookbook is focused on upping our intake of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and cutting back on animal products. But in typical Bittman fashion, these decidedly healthy recipes are not about going without or sacrificing tastiness.
