Homemade Kitchen Wisdom from Alana Chernila

Share

“Do Your Best, and Then Let Go” So reads one of the 13 chapters- and morsels- of kitchen wisdom in Alana Chernila‘s new cookbook, “The Homemade Kitchen.” This is a book whose message is as much about how to approach life at a slow, measured and pleasurable pace as it is about about cooking with the same intentions. “Start Where You Are.” “Feed Yourself.” “Put Your Hands in the Earth.” “Do the Work.” “Slow Down.” Alana has these phrases and others taped to her refrigerator. I do the same thing on mine with inspirational quotations such as: “Just as the […]

El Jefe of Nuevo Latino Cuisine- Chef Douglas Rodriguez

Share

He’s been called “the godfather of Nuevo Latino cooking” by media and food industry cognoscenti.  His dishes pack a “pow” in flavor, texture and color. I first became familiar with Chef Douglas Rodriguez’s muy sabroso culinary style when he was still in his tender twenties cooking “upscale Cuban” food at his restaurant YUCA (an acronym for “Young Cuban Americans”) in Miami. The James Beard Foundation Awards took notice early on and nominated him twice for Rising Star Chef of the Year; he won the award in 1996. Doug exploded into the competitive New York City restaurant scene with Patria, where he […]

If you have a dog-eared copy of any of these cookbooks on your shelf at home: Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Marion Cunningham’s Fannie Farmer Cookbook, Marcella Hazan’s Essentials of Italian Cooking or Jacques Pepin’s Art of Cooking, you can thank Judith Jones. If you ever read the published Diary of Anne Frank or a book by author, John Updike, you can thank Judith Jones. To say Judith Jones has had an estimable career in publishing is an understatement. As a longtime editor at Alfred A. Knopf her authors included Julia Child, Lidia Bastianich, James Beard, Marion […]
