Smoked Haddock Kedgeree

  Kedgeree was the ultimate Victorian British breakfast comfort food but is traditionally made using (Finnan Haddie) smoked haddock. Once I was able to source it in the US… I just had to make the dish. Kedgeree came to the UK from India during the time of the Raj. British […]

Spring Rolls

  Spring rolls or summer rolls are a Vietnamese delicacy known as “gỏi cuốn”. Depending on region, salad rolls were made differently. Some vegetarian families make vegetarian spring rolls rather than meat spring rolls. However, the typical ingredients include slivers of cooked pork (most often cha pork sausages), shrimp, sometimes […]

10 Minute Shrimp Scampi

  Scampi are tiny, lobster-like crustaceans with pale pink shells (also called langoustines). Italian cooks in the United States swapped shrimp for scampi, but kept both names.

Shrimp Quesadilla

Quesadillas have to be my favorite go-to food for lunch. They’re just so easy to make! Especially when you have tortillas and cheese in the fridge, which we almost always do. Recently I had lunch with an old friend at Buck’s of Woodside, a rather famous hang-out for Silicon Valley […]
