Want to DIY Your Own Tofu? Here’s How!

12 Dec, 2015  |  by Amanda Spinosa

When presented with the idea of making tofu from scratch, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little intimidated. It seems like it would be a very intense process, but I’ll try anything once so I dove in head first with my fingers crossed. When my Make-Your-Own Tofu Kit from Morinaga arrived in the mail, I couldn’t wait to try it out. On their website, you can order all different types of kits ranging from silken to extra…

Just Like Ma: Greeking Out in Hidden Valley with Yuli’s Granny’s Greek Salad Recipe

12 Dec, 2015  |  by Yuli Scheidt

My grandma was the type of cook to keep to the recipe, so any time we noticed she went off script we were there to be supportive. Offer up the yums and the belly rubs to show we really liked it, and that her biggest way of showing us love was appreciated. Really, this kind of thing was very important to her, if you burped after (or during) one of her meals, she’d take it as a “compliments to the…

A Simple Pumpkin & Seafood Risotto from Ricardo Cuisine!

fgfs Ricardo Cuisine Seafood Risotto - finished dish

Fall is here again! And we all know that with it will come the seemingly endless barrage of unnecessary “pumpkin spice” recipes on the Internet. In my opinion all those sweet pie flavours totally ruin a perfectly decent and underappreciated vegetable, the noble yet quaint pumpkin (although I do love the odd PSL). So instead of a triple pumpkin spice brownie (yawn) I have here a simple Pumpkin and Seafood Risotto – with not even a hint of cinnamon. I…

Cookin’ Up Lasooni Gobi (Vegan / Gluten-Free)

Lasooni Gobi

If I die young, bury me in curry, lay me down on a bed of garlic naan; I adore Indian food. Lasooni gobi/lehsuni gobhi/lasuni gobi, however you choose to spell it, is one of my favorite foods of all time. I was first exposed to it years and years ago at Jaipore Royal Indian Cuisine, which has a reputation for being the very best. Both fortunately and unfortunately for me, I live ten minutes away which my belly loves, but…

When the lovely people over at Choc., an LA/Brooklyn-based gluten-free, organic brownie company asked if they could send me some samples to taste and write about, I think I fell off of my chair. Not only have brownies been one of my very favorite sweet treats for the past twenty-three years of my life, I actually think “brownie” may have been my first word. I’m gonna be real with y’all, brownies are pretty easy to screw up. They are a…

More Than Yellow Mustard: Recipes with Maille

Cooking with Maille

It’s too often that cooks overlook simple and subtle ingredients in favour of the more glamorous ones. To make things taste good, usually one will just throw in a handful of salt or a pat of butter all willy-nilly and call it a day. Yet there is more to building flavour than just salt and fat. Mustard is one of those ingredients that is relegated to the realm of condiment for your hot dog or smoked meat sandwich, but if…

Cocktails at DW Alexander: Fashioned in Oaxaca

fashioned in oaxaca

Some see the United States as the birthplace of the cocktail. Even though it appears they originated in Great Britain, Americans modernized cocktails and gave them a more widespread charm and appeal. You can do almost anything with mixed drinks, there are endless combinations to try, and it was only matter of time before other nations accepted this and modified them to their tastes. Fashioned in Oaxaca is a modernized and modified cocktail, a spin-off of the Old Fashioned, swapping out the traditional American…
