In need of advice for a good dinner spot in Brooklyn's Chinatown (Sunset Park). Prefer something authentic and not too spendy. Any kind of regional Chinese food is okay, though Sichuan would be nice. Don't care about "atmosphere" or any of that nonsense. Thanks!
I need a reliable recipe for ricciarelli (almond cookies from Siena) - anyone have one that they've used and had good results with? Thanks in advance!
My family is planning on having a Swedish breakfast on Christmas morning but are having some trouble finding reliable recipes for Limpa Bread and St. Lucia Buns. Do you, dear SE'ers, have any tried-and-true methods for either of these? (I know some S.L. buns contain saffron and some contain cardamom - either version is fine) Thanks in advance!
I bought a can of matzo meal quite a while back to prepare a honey-nut passover cake. I'd like to use up the rest of the meal but haven't been able to find many recipes online that look appealing. I'd love to hear your suggestions! I'd sort of like to bake with it again, but other creative uses are welcome, too. Thanks!
I just read about Baltimore's Berger cookies in a recent issue of Saveur and would very much like to try some. It seems that the recipe is closely guarded, but I was wondering if any of you have tips for making them at home. Thanks in advance!
I'm lucky enough to have fresh, whole-milk ricotta sitting in my refrigerator. I used some last night for a pasta, but I'd like to make something with the remaining 8 ounces. Any creative ideas would be greatly appreciated!
Looks like Pure and Simple, that short documentary on Una Pizza Napoletana that we blogged about last summer when it appeared in the NYC Food Film Festival, is finally available in its entirety online, thanks to New York magazine's Vulture Picture Palace. It follows obsessive pizzaiolo Anthony Mangieri through one day in the life of his renown Naples-style pizzeria. At nine minutes, it's a bit longer than most web video we bring you, but it's the weekend. It ain't gonna kill you to watch. And, who knows, you might learn something....
