Valentine’s Day

This menu was as fun to come up with as it is to eat. They say oysters are an aphrodisiac but as shucking a raw one can be lethal, I steam mine just until they open and I can easily pry off the shell. They are easy to prepare and look very impressive on the table. The poussins (Cornish hens) require very little by way of preparation. The artichoke makes a great side and the heart is the best part. The molten chocolate cakes are also quick and very sexy, oozing with chocolate on the plate. Happy Valentine’s Day.

Love, gp

Roasted Poussins & Potatoes

An elegant update to chicken and potatoes. We use salt from Mallorca that’s infused with hibiscus, but regular salt is more than OK.

These are especially great because you can make the batter ahead of time and refrigerate it.

Soup Cleansing—And Why it’s So Good

It’s pretty well-established that we love a good cleanse. While we tend to gravitate toward longer whole foods-based detoxes, sometimes we’re inclined to juice it out for a few days, too (our favorite juice cleanses, here). But in the colder months, when our bodies crave warmth and comfort, juice...

At Mario Batali’s For Dinner

A couple of months ago, I had the great pleasure of being invited to Mario Batali’s house for dinner. (Yes, I am a lucky motherf***er!). Emeril Lagasse was also there as a guest, so I was curious to see what the great Batali would serve to dazzle a fellow...
