The Forest Feast: Shaved Brussels Slaw

by Erin Gleeson

Raw brussels sprouts have never tasted so good! If you want to make a lot of this, the slice blade on the Cuisinart or mandoline works really well too. This can easily be made ahead and you can really toss in any dressing you like. An easy holiday side dish! All photos and illustration by […]

MOTOism: Farewell to Summer: Corn 2 Ways

by Moto Yamamoto

Summer is over, but I like the beginning of the autumn. I can finally wear layers, and the chill in the morning and evening is comforting. And knitting season starts just about now! Although the food supply has lost seasonality in many ways and we can basically find almost any ingredient, any day of the […]

Japanify: Warm Shiitake and Corn Salad

by Yoko Kumano

After a whole summer of non-stop sunshine, fruit smoothies and ice-cold Franzia boxed wine (that was actually only for a day, sadly…), I’m really looking forward to the comforting food of autumn. I am not complaining though. I am a huge fan of cold noodles, raw oysters and the buckets of ice cream we allow […]

The Forest Feast: Watermelon Salad

by Erin Gleeson

Nothing says summer like watermelon! Slice watermelon into approx 1 inch rings, then remove the rind from each slice with a small knife. Place one watermelon “round” onto each salad plate, then top with a layer of thinly sliced fresh mozzarella (about five pieces, or however many you fancy!), followed by a layer of finely […]

Slightly Peckish: Som Tum Salad (BKK)

by Sakura Gooneratne

One of my favourite Thai dishes is som tum, the spicy green papaya salad so prevalent in Northern Thai or Isaan cuisine. I used to love it as a kid, and I love it even more as an adult although sometimes my tongue and stomach rebel against the fiery heat of the chillis that are […]

Skankynavia: Edamame Explosion Salad

by Anders Arhoj

Last week I attended a birthday party at a friend’s house. He rarely cooks but when he does, he is highly experimental and innovative. I had a drink and was busy chatting with fabulous guests, discussing the recent catastrophic Christian Dior Fall 2011 couture collection. All while inspecting the food table and scooping up various […]

Japanify: Yoko’s Japanese Potato Salad*

by Yoko Kumano

It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I don’t like eggs. But it’s not as debilitating as many people think. I can always get a waffle or bagel with a side for breakfast and choose to ask for no egg with my ramen. Luckily I am okay with foodstuffs with eggs as an […]
