Bake the Book: Cardamom and Ginger Shortbread

Emma Kobolakis 1 comment

Sometimes, A Lighter Way to Bake doesn't mean cutting corners on everything. Rather than compromising the flavor of a good shortbread, a full stick of butter is used in this recipe. Sugar is what's skimped on here, but the modest amount included is all that's needed to set off the bold flavors of cardamom and ginger. More

Raw Root Vegetable Salad From 'Joy of Kosher'

Cook the Book Kate Williams 4 comments

Root vegetables may be most often eaten in the coldest depths of winter, but I actually like them best in early spring. New carrots and radishes are a sweet counterpoint to wintered beets, breathing new life into the tired roots. Add a burst of anise-y fennel and a smattering of chopped nuts, as Jamie Geller does in her new cookbook Joy of Kosher, and you'll have a brilliantly elegant and healthy side dish. More

Behind the Scenes With Up Mountain Switchel in Brooklyn

Drinks Siobhan Wallace 1 comment

Switchel, also known as switzel, swizzle, or Haymaker's Punch, refers to the apple cider vinegar, water, and ginger-based drink found throughout America and the Caribbean during the 17th century and beyond. Both Laura Ingalls-Wilder and Herman Melville were fans, the latter mentioning it in the story "I and My Chimney." Unlike a shrub, switchel is mostly been consumed as a stand-alone drink, not a cocktail or bubbly-water addition. And while the switchel dates back several hundred years, it's on the rise again in Brooklyn thanks to Ely Key and Garrett Riffle's Up Mountain Switchel. More
