Montreal: Poutine Edition

If you’re not based in Canada, Seattle or maybe Burlington, Vermont sadly there is a good chance you didn’t grow up with poutine. Montreal’s signature food is a simple combination of French fries and gravy with cheese curds on top. In the U.S, disco fries aka fries with gravy exists but pales in comparison. You see – […]

Lettuce Sandwich Recipe: Wait! Don’t Go!

I wrote about My Grandmother’s Ravioli a few months back. It’s a show featuring Mo Rocca where he interviews sweet G-Ma’s for their prized recipes. This sandwich was inspired by an episode in New England about Lobster (of course) and oddly, lettuce sandwiches. Wait! Come back! They’re actually pretty tasty. The original recipe which can […]

Vegan Pumpkin Pie

For many people baking pies is intimidating. There is a science to perfectly baked goods. It’s easy to over or under do. And unlike stove top cooking, there is little room for error. This is part of the reason I’d never tried to make pumpkin pie before. But the culinary gods gave a nudge by […]
