Live the Questions | Rustic Rhubarb Tarts

Recently, a friend and I were discussing a common theme in our lives, one that I return to again and again with friends these days—what’s next, and when? And how, exactly, do we answer those questions? My friend referenced a quote, something Krista Tippett had talked about on her podcast or in her book, though she […]

As I Am | Apple Galette

It’s safe to say that every time I have a dinner party, I want to write about it here. And it makes sense, right? I love cooking for myself, and for me and Ben, but there’s something special, something entirely distinct, that happens when you sit down at home with a bunch of people you […]

For Many Reasons | Yeasted Fig & Goat Cheese Tart

For Many Reasons | Yeasted Fig & Goat Cheese Tart

I’d long dreamt of making this tart, probably ever since I spotted it in the pages of Plenty More. Figs! Goat cheese! Almonds! Herbs! Gorgeous yeasted pastry! It’s certainly a beauty, and Yotam Ottolenghi always gets this sort of thing right. The vision sat patiently in my head (and on a scrap of paper along with several other culinary delights that […]
