David tells the tale of the two drama-ridden dressings he grew up with at his family’s Portuguese Thanksgiving table.
David tries his hand–and The One’s patience–at making a luxuriously rich, make-you-go-wobbly-in-the-knees duck stock. And he succeeds, on all counts.
Is anything more soothing than standing before a burbling pot of Marcella Hazan’s bolognese sauce? That’s what we thought.
When The One goes to a yoga retreat for a week to cleanse body and mind, David tries cooking healthy when he returns…with unexpected results.
Corn dogs, that ubiquitous county fair food, played a crucial, almost divine role, in keeping David alive during a detour in Dallas. Recipe included.
Love food is food you cook for the one you love. Not just lobster and Champagne. The day-to-day stuff, too. As David finds, after 17 years with The One, they’ve still got it.
Nova Scotia is a hotbed of mussels. After visiting a local shellfish farm, David and The One dined on the just-harvested bivalves, swimming in an herby broth.
