Braised Parsnips With Cara Cara Oranges

Feb 26, 2013

Braising is my favorite preparation for parsnips, because it really brings out all the flavors this oft-forgotten root has to offer: delicate sweetness, earthiness and just a hint of minerality. Cara caras, one of the many types of heirloom citrus that become blessedly available in the winter months, are a perfect partner to parsnips. But if you can’t find them, regular navel oranges will work just as well. Braised Parsnips... Read More

Braised Shell Beans With Parmesan Broth

Jan 09, 2013

There’s nothing like fresh shell beans, in my opinion. No matter what you do, you can’t get the same result with canned or dried beans. Cooked properly, the texture and flavor can’t be beat. I used cranberry beans for this recipe, but you could substitute just about any fresh shell bean you can get your hands on. And if you weren’t already, hopefully this recipe will be a wake-up call...

Beef Stew in Red Wine

Dec 28, 2011

This is a very simple, no nonsense, quick to prepare dish you can make easily in your wood-fired oven. It’s a big, satisfying meal that’s especially welcome in fall and winter. It’s very flexible, too, so experiment with different ingredients, especially vegetables. All you need with it is a green salad, good bread for dipping, and red wine, of course. You can double it for a crowd. Freezes well, but... Read More
