Cooking Our Way Home

by Lucy Gellman | Aug 19, 2015 12:29 pm

For Eva Geertz, it was a six-minute raw tomato sauce adapted from Nora Ephron’s Heartburn, dumped with panache over a pot of still-steaming noodles at the end of a long day. For Alisa Bowens, collard greens, summered with a pork rear (but not this) and spooned with care beside a springy, soft-but-crunchy mess of macaroni and cheese.

Lucy Gellman Photo For Laurel Underwood-Price, the secret to starting a pie was remembering her grandmother, whose soft and spectral hand seemed to guide her to a jar of year-old peaches preserved in spice and brandy. In the spirit of his autumnal food drive at the Connecticut Food Bank, James N. Trimble opted for a caramel apple crumb recipe, conjuring magic as he stirred butter, sugar, and half-and-half over the stove. Linda Hubler took a bag of peaches and a cup of sugar as a chance to bond with her 13-year-old daughter. Elise Dunphe saw it as a reason to celebrate her own summer bounty ... and a Connecticut culinary family she’d come to love fiercely.

by Markeshia Ricks | Jul 8, 2015 9:47 am | Comments (5)

The burrito started out the way so many burritos start: with a flour tortilla.

What Sasha Feliciano loaded the steamed flour tortilla up with next probably would have made you pause and say either, “Why would anyone do that?” or “Why didn’t I think of that?”
