Here’s a healthy appetizer for Super Bowl Sunday or a snack for any day that doesn’t have football in it. Recently posted on Diane Atwood’s blog, Catching Health, this simple recipe for green pea hummus is packed with healthy vitamins. Serve with endive, as in the recipe, or with all sorts of cut veggies to add color to your appetizer spread.
I had the privilege of cooking with Rob Caldwell of WCSH6 and the show 207 a couple of weeks ago. The first of three segments aired last night and you can watch me making Chocolate Rosemary Tart with Sea Salt Caramel Bark here. The other two will air over the winter and as we know, we’ll let you know. The recipe for the tart is on their site and if you’ve already got Sugar & Salt: The Orange Book, then you just need to add rosemary to the recipe in the book.
This was my first time in the new O’Maine Studio, which is a lovely upgrade from the former kitchen. But it got me reminiscing as I was the first chef to do a spot in the original studio kitchen. How many years ago was that? Not gonna count.
Thanks Rob and the gang for a fun time in your new studio!
Fantastic articles about the J. & E. Riggin just keep coming. I don’t know what else to say about this write-up in Edible Maine, except I love the story, I love the photos, I love everything about this article. You can read “Three Squares at Sea” out online or order a copy from the Edible Maine website.
For those of you who don’t live in Maine or New England, this month’s issue of Yankee Magazine might be a harder to come by, but if you can get your hands on a copy, do it! Amy Traverso, accomplished writer, has given the Riggin wonderful kudos and Mark Flemming, photographer extraordinaire, adds a lovely balance to her words.
Recipes included in the article are Pecan Sticky Buns, Cornish Game Hens with Smoked Shrimp and Brandy Stuffing, Zucchini Gratin, and Lime Pie Jars. You can also find these recipes in At Home. At Sea – The Red Book, 2nd Edition.
In case you missed it on Facebook, here’s the link to our most recent press about the Sugar & Salt books. Peggy Grodinsky is the acclaimed food editor of the Portland Press Herald and was actually my editor for a couple of years until I stopped doing the food column for that paper. It was interesting to talk with her in this interview, as while we worked together for several years, we inherited each other and never actually met face to face. Most of our conversations were via email based exclusively on the text and content of my columns. To have our awareness of each other expand into our larger life realms was fun.
The piece is in the Chop Chop segment and features my recipes for Blizzard Carbonara and Beet, Pear, and Cranberry Salad with Shaved Asiago.
You’ve been asking for it and we’ve found a way to bring it to you – with your help. What have you been asking for, you say? Why a new printing of the red cookbook, At Home, At Sea, of course. I’ve heard ALOT over the past several years it’s been out of print that we should do a second printing. We are ready!
But here’s the thing… We just printed Sugar & Salt: The Orange Book last year and we haven’t had enough time to recoup our printing costs to turn around and do another printing. However, E and I are ready and up to the task of putting together a new and updated version of At Home, At Sea for you.
Now, we just need your help! Check out the details of our Kickstarter campaign. There are a bunch of fun gift levels from mini-notecards, a Riggin apron, the cookbooks, Maine lobster sent to your door, me as your personal chef, a trip on the Riggin, and an elegant dinner made for you and your 8 guests in your own home. Thank you for taking the time to check out our latest effort!
