Sicilian Olive and Smoked Almond Tapenade from 'Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Tapenade is typically a briny mix of olives, capers, anchovies, and olive oil, loosely bound and best eaten in small bites, smeared on toast or drizzled atop warm-from-the-vine tomatoes. I've made plenty of the spread in my own kitchen, but I've never strayed from the expected ingredient list. Tenaya Darlington's recipe in Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese takes a completely different approach. She laces her tapenade with nutty and sweet Foja de Noce, an Italian sheep's milk cheese wrapped in walnut leaves. More

Sweets Max Falkowitz 8 comments

The perfect thing to do with less than perfect apricots. The ice cream gets a double dose of almonds: some chopped up into the final scoop, but also some steeped into cream, which adds a deep, nutty flavor to the base. More

Chilled Spanish White Gazpacho from 'Flour, Too'

Kate Williams 1 comment

Perfect for the hot summer months, gazpacho requires little more than a good blender and some patience during its chilling time. But it doesn't take many bowls of the tomato version to grow tired of slurping enriched vegetable juice. Enter white gazpacho. The Spanish blend of almonds and green grapes is an enlivening break from tomato. This recipe, from Joanne Chang's new cookbook Flour, Too, is a prime example—the fruit and nuts combine with crisp English cucumbers, bright cilantro, and a one-two punch of lime juice and sherry vinegar.
