Marinated Short Ribs

I love all the techniques that let a food sit passively and improve itself - pickling, brining and marinating all tend to make things better in my book. Why do more work when you can just let the liquid do it for you? Short ribs are particularly great for this, and Cote seems to have it down to a science.

The Easiest, Most Flavorful Tabbouleh

Tabbouleh is one of those items that can really go either way. The tasteless ones dull an entire meal but the good ones can liven and brighten everything. Alon Shaya has figured out that perfect balance of brightness. The humble parsley salad shines in his capable hands.

How Beer Is Made in 1 Minute

Beer is pretty complex to make a people have spent lifetimes studying it. But for the casual beer drinker like myself, it's sometimes more realistic to have an overview (don't think I have many beer brewing days in front of me). I recently took a trip to Portland, Maine and had the good fortune to stop into the Allagash Brewery.

How to Throw a Luau

I know what you're thinking: luaus don't make anyone outside of Hawaii look cool. No one wants to dress up like their dad in a bad Hawaiian shirt. 

But I'm here to tell you that that's where you've been going wrong. Hawaiian theme doesn't have to mean pineapples and cheap leis. And that's where Sheldon Simeon comes in.

How Lobster Gets to Your Lobster Roll

It's easy to think of lobster whole - unlike most seafood, we are accustomed to seeing them live and swimming around in tanks. But for most of the lobster we eat, it actually goes through a process that is a little more complex.
