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

Sunday Kitchen

The Longest Day of the Year

Celebrate maxed-out daylight with your pick of the bounty. One suggestion: “Aspabroc,” a type of broccolini that leans sweet and plays very well with others at the table.

Parsley & Barberries

A gift of an uncommon ingredient and an abundance of a familiar one leads to a dish that tastes like no other, but is right for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Garlic Scapes

Those curlicues of green piled in bins at farmers’ markets? Grab ’em! Their uses are near-endless and their taste distinctively allium.

Side Show

Seasonal Garden State produce is your go-to when it comes to picking a supporting cast for stars of the grill. Don’t be surprised if the minion gets a standing ovation.

Stewing, Warm-Weather-Style

Surprisingly quick and easy to cook, unsurprisingly satisfying to eat with its beans-and-greens base, this cassoulet’s smoked pork and dried fruit accents get a lift from energizing heat.

Mustards! (And More)

Greens signal the start of the seasonal flow – and mustards are on fire right now. Get ’em while they’re hot off the farm.

Basturma: Unforgettable

Finding in Paterson the cured beef with roots in the Eastern Mediterranean brings to mind a mentor who taught generations and put into the spotlight neglected ingredients now fundamental to our cookery.

Beans, the Non-Project Project

Here’s the deal: Dry beans are easy; it’s thinking about them that can be hard. You soak, you boil, you simmer – and then you have them at hand to make into glorious meals all week long.

Market as Muse

Summit Farmers’ Market is open for the season – and offering endless inspiration for cooks.

Of Bowls and Rice

The best of foods deserves the best of vessels. Rice from Blue Moon Acres meets its perfect match.

Reveling in Ramps

Ready, set – dig into the super-short season of ramps, the beguiling allium that charms with unique pungency and unexpected versatility.

Nanna’s Cabbage and Noodles

It’s the right time for a dish passed down through the generations. Especially if that dish is the equivalent of “a warm hug from beyond.”
