"Rachel, wow I just had this argument at the junior high. We make our children take PE classes, but we don't teach them how to grow, harvest or cook any real food. I think our kids would be healthier if they knew what they were eating. I find…"

Is There A Crisis in Home Cooking?

Is it true that fewer and fewer of us are cooking at home?Recently I read a poll by Harris Interactive finding that nearly 60% of Americans eat at least half of their meals out each week.And last week, I attended a conversation between Mark Bittman, The New York Times food writer, and Ruth Reichl, author of multiple food memoirs and former editor-in-chief of the sadly now-defunct Gourmet. The dialogue encompassed a number of topics about food today, but the thing that struck me most was a…See More

Sunchokes (a.k.a Jerusalem Artichokes): Recipes & How to Grow Your Own

As winter sets in, you may have seen these gnarly roots at your farmers’ market or grocery store, under the name “sunchoke” or “jerusalem artichoke,” and wondered: What in the heck do I do with these?Sunchokes have become one of my favorite vegetables. I’ve known them better as jerusalem artichokes, having had them pureed or creamed in soups in San Francisco restaurants. But my two favorite ways to cook them at home highlight their nutty flavor and refreshingly crunchy texture: a hash with…See More

"That gratin looks awesome, and I never thought of eating raw, grated turnip on a salad. Thanks for the ideas, as I see plenty of turnips at our farmers' market."

The Garden Returns: Playing With Our Food

Sometimes you don’t realize just how big a part of your life something has become until it goes away and then comes back. When it’s gone, you might not even notice the void; you fill it up with other activities, people, outings. But as soon as it returns to your life, you feel more centered, happier, and like the world’s a better place.Have you ever felt that way? For me, this realization occurred when I finally got to go out and garden, after a summer of our backyard being carved up, tromped…See More

Creating Something Out of Nothing: Stock & Compost

There’s something supremely satisfying about using all the parts of an animal or vegetable, about not throwing out those parts, but recycling them -- not in a blue bin, but in ways that form even more food that you can eat (even if -- and somehow, especially because -- that transformation takes time, whether it's seven…See More

Need A Tasty Thanksgiving Side? Try Roasted Cauliflower AND Cauliflower Greens

I'm a huge fan of using every part of a vegetable or animal versus letting useable parts go to waste. For instance, when we buy a chicken to roast at home, my husband teases me because I clean the wings, drumsticks and thigh bones like nobody's business, and I even go so far as to pick extra meat off of his serving. The carcass and innards go into the freezer until I have enough to make a big pot of stock.So when I went to the farmers' market this past weekend and picked up a lovely…See More
