pickled onions

February 22nd, 2012

I make tacos for dinner way more often than I make anything else. They’re just easy and always delicious… I don’t care what you throw in there, if it’s in a tortilla, we’ll probably eat it. This weekend after I got some carnitas going in the crock pot, I decided it was time to jazz things up on the taco front (P.S. if you don’t have a crock pot yet, make that happen, you’ll never look back). That’s where these lovely pickled onions come in.

what is it?

October 8th, 2011

This morning we went to the market and came upon these green things that have a tough, bumpy skin. I stopped and asked the vendor who was actually writing a sign as we spoke. It said: dry them, peel them, crack them, eat them. Do you know what they are? (answer after the jump).

Remedy Quarterly, Issue 5: Community is here!

June 13th, 2011

I’m super excited to announce that Issue 5 of my (printed) food magazine, Remedy Quarterly is here! Woohoo! It’s always so exciting to get the real-deal-printed issue in my hands. The smell of the ink, the sigh of relief when everything turns out ok, reading the stories… they’re all things I savor with the arrival of each issue.

Issue 5 is super special because it marks the first issue in our second volume. We chose community as our theme because you, our community of readers and supporters, mean the world to us and are continually inspiring us. Plus, we’re always looking for themes that can be interpreted in a plethora of ways, and you’ll find all sorts of interpretations in this issue. From a gastronomic society in Basque Country to a community of urban gardeners in Detroit right down to a multi-cultural community of fermentations in one woman’s San Francisco apartment, we’ve got plenty of stories to get you inspired to interact with your very own community. If that’s not enough, we’ve got an awesome illustrated recipe from Jeannette Ordas of Everybody Likes Sandwiches and an interview with maker and baker Megan Gordon of Marge Bakery in San Francisco, all sorts of recipes and more!

So come on, why not pick up an issue right here. If you order either Issue 5 or Volume 2 (Issues 5-8) we’ll include a bonus magazine with your order.

read: some of my favorites

April 11th, 2011

When I started eat make read three years ago, it was above all a way to cure my boredom, so I named it after things I liked to do… eat good food, make stuff and read whatever I could get my hands on. Within a month or so of blogging, I realized the real direction of my blog would lie within the “eat” part. I loved the search for a new recipe, going to the market, trying something new. And so, my blog turned into a food blog, which, as a recovering picky eater, I think is pretty awesome. But I wanted to take some time while I’m on vacation to share some of my favorite food-related books with you, get in touch with the “read” part of eat make read.

I have a definite problem when it comes to books about food. I’m addicted. So much so that I really had to put the brakes on buying things because my apartment is only so big. I know though that by the time you’ve read this I’ve probably made a trip to Ominivore Books in San Francisco and possibly already purchased a new suitcase. But that’s beside the point. There are a few cookbooks that I find myself reaching for when a) I want to be inspired and b) I want to be able to actually make it. Both Simply Organic by Jesse Ziff Cool and Breakfast, Lunch, Tea are full of amazing recipes that will make you stop and ask, “Whoa, I made this?!”. Spoon Fed by New York Times writer Kim Severson is one of my most recent reads and is one that has kept me thinking about several ideas in the weeks since. Read the rest of this entry »

bow ties, let’s hang out + bittman

April 6th, 2011

I swear, this is not turning into a dog blog. But come on, Maude in a bow tie might be the cutest thing ever! In other news, I haven’t been in the kitchen as much as I’d like lately, which is part of the reason you’re looking at a picture of Maude rather than something edible and delicious. Truth be told, I’ve been hustling to get Issue 5 of Remedy Quarterly in shape before we head out to San Francisco (YAY!) next week.

Which leads me to a question… do you live in or near San Francisco? Want to hang out? Friends of Type and I will be hanging out at a soon-to-be-decided bar this Saturday and would love to hang out with some of our internet friends (that’s you!). I’ll have more info during happy hour this week, but I just wanted to plant that seed.

Lastly, I have one food related thing to discuss. Have you read Mark Bittman’s new column for The New York Times Magazine? It’s kind of awesome. Bittman keeps his usual its-so-easy approach, taking one ingredient or dish and breaking it down so its way simpler than you ever thought possible. In this new column, he also provides an assortment of ideas and recipes that you can make with the ingredient. For instance, last week’s article was on whitefish and he provided three recipes for each for 4 cooking methods, broiled, sautéed, roasted and poached. This is the kind of writing—and, I must admit, design—that catches my eye and gets me excited to make something in the kitchen that I probably wouldn’t have otherwise.

Ok, that’s it for now.

read: home dairy

March 9th, 2011

Today I’m thrilled to share Home Dairy with Ashley English with you! It’s part of the Homemade Living Series that includes Keeping Bees, Keeping Chickens and Canning and Perserving. You may be familiar with Ashley’s Small Measures column over on Design*Sponge where she tempts us every Friday with recipes and crafts that are not only tasty (well the recipes are at least) but also eco-friendly.

Ashley was kind enough to contribute a story to Issue 2 of Remedy Quarterly, so when she asked me to contribute to Home Dairy, I jumped at the chance. It’s no secret that I love dairy, I mean, I’ve been known to publicly profess my love for cheese (why can’t it be a vegetable?!) and now it’s in printed form. You can find me in the dairy book under “Portrait of a Dairy Lover” and I couldn’t be happier!

This book is chock full of inspiring recipes that make me want to get in the kitchen and start whipping up all sorts of tasty treats, from butter to mozzarella to strawberry, chevre & balsamic ice cream. In addition to the recipes, it has helpful equipment guides and instructions, which I always find reassuring. Check it out here. Congratulations Ashley!
