Spice-Infused Couscous with Baharat Candied Pistachios, Fall Vegetables and Sumac Dressing

Spice-Infused Couscous with Baharat Candied Pistachios, Fall Vegetables and Sumac Dressing

A stunning dish with flavors as captivating as the colors of the season. Here we perfumed the couscous with warm, whole spices, roasted the vegetables to heighten their natural sweetness, and balanced those flavors with bright sumac and lemon dressing and sweet-warm-salty Baharat spiced pistachios. We tossed it all together with arugula create a beautifully bright salad, perfect for crispy fall weather.

Dumplings, Potstickers, Wontons- the choice of wrapper, cooking technique, filling, and folding style determine what's what but they are truly all delicious!  Our new dried Stir Fry Mushroom Blend of shiitake, wood ear, paddy straw, and oyster mushrooms were perfect for this recipe. Our Asian Sesame Tuna Rub is the perfect complimentary seasoning for a dipping sauce and if you're feeling ambitious- Bowls & Broths offers a series of dumplings wrapper recipes and techniques.

Summer Peach Old Fashioned

Summer Peach Old Fashioned

We love an Old Fashioned, but it often feels like a cold-weather drink. Enter - peaches. Or really any summer stone fruit. This is so simple and so delicious on a balmy summer day.
We've offered Runamok Cocktail Syrups for a few years now because they do such a good job at creating delicious, all natural flavor infusions. Enjoy the smoked version or regular, depending on your preference. Hello campfire vibes!

Bloody Mary Mignonette

Bloody Mary Mignonette

When I see Celery Salt, I think of two things- Lobster Rolls + Bloody Mary's! We've got our Southwest Bloody Mary Cocktail Recipe here in the Recipe Box, but how incredible would it be if each slurp of a fresh raw oyster had a Bloody Mary shot in it? Yum! While oysters are my go-to, you can find a collection of other ideas on how to use this mignonette at the end! Happy shucking!

Spring Citrus Salad with Fennel Pollen

Spring Citrus Salad with Fennel Pollen

Hellllloooo new ingredient! Fennel Pollen is here + ready to play! Unfamiliar with fennel pollen? We've got it all covered in this blog post- what it is, what it's like, where it comes from + more. With such a beautiful, delicate ingredient it is important to give it the spot light. Here we made a bright, springy salad that essentially dresses itself between bites with the blood oranges. It makes a great mid-day snack or an impressive appetizer ((especially with this AE Ceramics Oyster plate!)
