The Garden State's independent news source for all things culinary

Fortnightly 5

Summer’s Start: 6-21-21

Could it be all the new menus? Or is it more about personal cravings? Likely a combo of both, and maybe more. The foods of summer are calling.

Hot Off the Farm: 6-7-21

Yet again, it’s true: The Garden State’s best comes from … the Garden State’s farms.

Reimagination Is Fun: 5-24-21

Spins on the familiar spark smiles and show off the skills of Garden State food artists. These are my favorites of the fortnight just past; what are yours?

Past Perfect: 5-10-21

Riveting versions of foods first experienced long ago highlight a spate of exhilarating mid-spring eating.

Humble & Haute: 4-26-21

A lovely, home-style soup seduces. A procession of gobsmacking Japanese-French dishes mesmerizes. So do an ancient mashup of beans, rice and macaroni, a dressed-up country pate and a reconfigured staple.

Something Old, Something New: 4-12-21

Sometimes a longtime food friend introduces you to something novel and wonderful. Sometimes a longtime food friend takes you back to something familiar and still fabulous.

Jersey Best: 3-29-21

Could I be eating better any place else? No, I say to myself, as this fortnight draws to a close. Not with the skilled growers and fisherfolk, artisans and chefs working here in the Garden State.

Promises, Promises: 3.15.21

The first rabe of the year; a soft pretzel that takes one back out to the ballgame; eggs that do Easter proud; a light, bright, decidedly non-wintery stew; a food meant to eat by hand at the first picnic of the season: These harbingers of spring flavors topped my personal eating chart during the fortnight just past.

In Like a Lion: 3.1.21

Pure, strong and compelling flavors that manage to be bright, even unexpectedly light, offer a glimpse ahead to a month that can start with rage and close with the hint of halcyon days.

Dog days of winter: 2.15.21

Are you despairing of a tomato-less time of year? Please don’t. There’s so much so good out there right now. Eat! Enjoy!
