by David Sepulveda | Feb 26, 2015 1:10 pm | Comments (1)

DAVID SEPULVEDA PHOTOS It was a close shave for some firefighters, police and civilians who dared “brave the shave,” losing their locks to a phalanx of hair stylists as part of the annual St. Baldrick’s childhood cancer research fundraiser held at Pitkin Plaza’s Trinity Bar — formerly O’Tooles — the site of previous St. Baldrick’s events.

Markeshia Ricks Photo With shallots and garlic sautéing in a pan, Chef Pete Jaynes could have reached for a nice white wine for his sauce. But Valentine’s Day is coming. So instead he reached for the champagne to deglaze his pan.

At Olea, It’s All About That Bass

by Lucy Gellman | Feb 5, 2015 3:18 pm

A cut of a European sea bass called Branzino sunned itself on the glinting, clean countertop, as its foodie friends – old and trusted (salt, sliced potatoes, olive oil, cream) and some newer (crispy quinoa, fried capers, rosemary-soaked, flame-licked baby tomatoes) – stood at the ready in small white dishes.

Lucy Gellman Photo On Trumbull Street, Caseus was preparing for the lunch rush. In the cheese shop downstairs, a cheesemonger weighed chunks of mild, melty Saint D’Agur, runny Mont d’Or, and young, still-timid Manchego for a steady stream of customers.

Archie Moore’s Wings It For The Super Bowl

by Allan Appel | Feb 1, 2015 2:01 pm | Comments (2)

Jose García orchestrated 300 individual chicken wings bubbling away in the seven-basket fryolator for 15 minutes. He gave each basket ten deft shakes a minute so the vegetable oil parboiled them evenly. Then out they went to the refrigerated truck in the parking lot to await saucing.

They joined what in the end will be — count ‘em — 25,000 individual wings, 360 pounds of cut celery, and 17 five-gallon buckets of Buffalo wing sauce, which will fill about 1,000 Super Bowl orders at Archie Moore’s between 11:30 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Asked if he could reveal what’s in the wing sauce, longtime manager Jim Wooley thought deeply and then replied, “No.”

Ode To Lulu’s

Paul Bass Photo Back in the mid-1990s, not long after I had moved to New Haven from New York City, I was sitting at Lulu’s European Coffeehouse enjoying a mug of her high-test, low acid brew when the eponymous hero of the shop sat down and shoved a sheaf of crumpled papers at me. “This is my friend’s writing,” she said. “You simply must read it.”

At 16, Lalibela Spills Its Secrets

by Lucy Gellman | Jan 26, 2015 11:12 am | Comments (2)

Lucy Gellman Photo “What would you like?”  Shilmat Tessema asked as she lifted a warm container of food over her Lalibela truck’s countertop.

Thomas Breen stepped up to the chrome-and-yellow food truck that has become a beloved staple at Ingalls Rink, eyeing the steaming, thick portions of turmeric-kissed cabbage, gleaming, wilted green beans, spice-rubbed carrots, and clay-red lentils that he had been thinking of all week.
