Brussels sprouts even their haters will love

January 1, 2020, 6:00am Food

Among my favorite wintertime bites are the warm Brussels sprouts served at Prune in New York. The sprouts come steamed tender and bathed in olive oil and salt, toothpicks on the side for spearing.

In October, I flew to Paris to visit a friend living there. We were there to do research in Normandy for her next book and spent days driving around the French countryside — eating moules frites in Étretat, cobbling together dinner from a French grocery store while staying in a remote 17th century chateau in La Pommeraye — and, of course, drinking lots and lots of cidre.

December 25, 2019, 6:05am Food

Breakfast bakes are a morning mainstay for good reason. They are prepped the night before, and so offer the cook a relaxed morning. They can feed a house full of guests, or check breakfast off the to-do list for a couple of days. Read story
