Recipe: A Near Perfect Bacon Alternative With Only 3 Ingredients

I could say that this post is especially for all the vegetarians out there, but let's be real – this one is for everyone because it's about bacon.

For most meat eaters, there is no substitute for the texture of the real thing. But I'm here to tell you that we may have found an alternative that scratches the bacon itch so well that even non vegetarians approve: Shiitake Bacon. The best part is it has only three ingredients!

Homemade Yogurt: You're Doing it Wrong

One of the best birthday gifts I ever received arrived in a tiny plastic container, unlabeled and mysterious. A friend of mine had been a chef at Google when the infamous food scientist Harold McGee visited and brought along a batch of his homemade yogurt to share with the chefs. I was lucky enough to receive a little bit of this starter and Harold’s special science-based instructions. Posted on 20 Aug 17:01 , 0 comments

How to make the best goat cheese

I’ve been teaching cheesemaking classes for several years now and I find time after time that the fresh handmade chevre (goat cheese) is the thing people can’t stop raving about. Not only is it adored by goat cheese lovers, it’s been known to win the hearts and minds of erstwhile goat cheese-haters in my classes. Someone walks up to the cheese table, puts something they think might be ricotta on a cracker and falls in love with it just to find it’s made from goat’s milk! The horror! Wait, this is actually pretty good. Posted on 18 Aug 16:58 , 0 comments
