French toast-- it's a Sunday morning favorite in our house and after years of tinkering with egg to milk to sugar ratios, I am finally sharing "the one". I like my french toast thick with a good texture; crunchy on the outside and tender, but not soggy on the inside.

Like every great man, standing right behind him is two even greater women and Mrs Hederman (Caroline Workman & Frank’s daughter Alex) are no exception. Often the admin people when things get busy as ‘Frank is useless’ at that sort of thing, the Hederman ladies are stepping out from behind Frank`s large shadow to bring foodies their own range of delicious pies and tarts.

An interviewer recently asked me, “what’s new in your pizza & flatbread book that you didn’t already cover in “Artisan Bread…” and in “Healthy Bread…”? My answer: A lot!

Whoever said that too many cooks in the kitchen spoil the soup wasn't entirely correct.

When it comes to vegan cooking and baking, cheese substitution is one of those things that gives me a headache. I’m a bit wary of soy-based alternatives, as they seem over-processed and unnatural in comparison.

I admit I am still at a loss with most spices. Now that I live in the Middle east, close to India, the spice shelves are packed with spices I am not even familiar with. I can identify a lot more spices by their looks and smells than 7 years ago, before I moved to Dubai.

With the arrival of each new month, I have a little routine of running through the house flipping all of our calendars. We have several calendars just like we have several clocks, because I’m all time-conscious. I could have sworn it was just yesterday that I flipped to November.

This day marks the one year anniversary of my first ever blog post and what a year it has been. The blog has gone from something very small that only my family and closest friends cared about to something that thousands of people visit a month. I am truly humbled. I am truly grateful.

After a bit of research, we found that they are indeed the same animal, of the genus Emeritus, also known as the Sand or Mole Crab. On Martha’s Vineyard, they are usually called “Sand Fleas”, but this term is also used to describe any number of small biting flea, shrimp and fly-like critters. In the interest of keeping things at least moderately appetizing, lets call them Mole Crabs from now on.

I prepared this stew with boar meat. Boar reminds me of autumn in Europe, the season of La Chasse, or the hunting season. Like most game, boar is lean and slightly gamey. It benefits from slow cooking and pairs well with fruit and spirits, such as Calvados and Armagnac. If you cannot find boar meat, pork is a good substitute.

Last weekend, I set out on a run. I was excited because temperatures were warm and the sun was out--when you're usually running at 5 am, it's a real treat to run in daylight. My excitement quickly turned to frustration. The source of my frustration? The 20-30 mph winds I found myself fighting for over an hour.

Right now I think I’m stuck in a rut. Remind me to edit my ‘about me’ page, because a few months after I wrote that, here I am not a teacher anymore. I never studied to become a teacher in the first place.

Contributing to this website that I started only four weeks ago has so far been a very rewarding experience. I’ve found an outlet for my extreme passion for food and have been able to marry it to my love of history, sociology, politics and environmentalism.

As an introduction to Finnish language, I will teach you an important word that is easy to pronounce. In case you ever get stuck here and are forced to communicate with the natives in the matters of food, it might save you from being served some of the unflattering dishes known as the local cuisine.

Apparently, turning 40 means that I am occasionally (!) absent-minded. I made this sometime last week and didn’t write down a single step. Thinking I’d remember it, the days passed by and with them the details.

I need your help. The title of this post, Yes, das ist eine bread basket, is ripped straight from the fractured memories of my childhood. I think it was one of the lyrics of a “list” song I learned as a tot, but that single line is all I remember. That, and when you sang the words “bread basket” you pointed to your stomach. If you know the song please refresh my memory. (Or titter at my lack thereof.)

Well, I’m not here to talk weather. Not today. I’m here to celebrate—friendship and birthdays. It’s the season to be thankful. To honor the occasion, I want to tell three awesome people—Tony, Hazra, Shaily—who celebrate their birthday this month, how much I value their friendship, how grateful I am to know them.

Last night I was taking a study break when I stumbled upon a great article by The Economist on cookbooks’ history (yep, I'm a geek. Proud of it though). It described how cookbooks have been influenced by history and how they’ve changed to adapt to society.
