Jungle Curry

Alrighty folks, its go time! For those following along at home, it’s cake week! And by that I mean I will elbow deep in buttercream and cake batter as I prep for my cousin’s wedding cake! We are t-minus 7 days away from the destination wedding in Florida. Which means I have 4 days to

Huevos Habaneros with Mojo-Spiced Tostones

Huevos Habaneros with Mojo-Spiced Tostones

I’m a huge advocate for “breakfast for dinner” meals, especially on nights when I don’t feel like cooking. They’re satisfying, quick, and require very little use of the hot oven (perfect for warm summer nights). And with the upcoming wedding and cake prep (did I mention I’m making a 3 tiered wedding cake next week??)

Fish Tacos with Strawberry and Corn Pico de Gallo

Fish Tacos with Strawberry and Corn Pico de Gallo

If you caught yesterday’s post you’ll know that my wife and I have found ourselves in the middle of a seafood binge. I mean, you cant blame us. The simplicity and bold flavors associated with great seafood dishes are hard to pass up, especially now as the weather is getting warmer. And duh, it’s Tuesday,

Grilled Turkey Burger with Basil-Peach Compote

I dont know about you but I’ve been really jonesing to pull out the grill for good. I know I’ve tinkered with it a little already this year but nothing screams Summer more to me than having that grill as a key focal point of my yard. And is there any better way to christen

Old Bay Black Eyed Peas, Peach Chow Chow, and Collards

I have a confession: I’m a closeted Southern food fanatic. And not because I’m ashamed or embarrassed. Quite the opposite actually! I say I’m closeted because, despite my in-depth search, I continue to find it difficult to access Southern food. Think about it, how many Italian restaurants are available within a 10 mile radius from

Chicken Saag with Tomato Raita and Lemon Rice

I really started falling in love with Indian curries about 6 years ago. I wasn’t exposed to it growing up so when my boss asked me to create more Indian-inspired dishes I was slightly paralyzed with ignorance. But once I educated myself about the cuisine, I was amazed at how complex and beautiful Indian food

Corn Gazpacho with Seared Scallops and Harissa

Scallops and corn go together like peas and carrots. And I cant think of a recipe that epitomizes early summer vibes more than this recipe for corn gazpacho with scallops and harissa. OK so it may not feel like summer where you are (it’s been dark and rainy for at least 2 weeks here) but

Green Mole Chicken with Black Bean-Zucchini Salad

You guys, there are exciting things happening in the Farmstead Table house! Without going into too much detail yet, know that the upcoming change of scenery will be well documented here! Until then, a quick and tasty meal is necessary to keep our excitement (and now detailed planning) going strong. This Green Mole Chicken with

Honey Chipotle Chicken with Mango Salad and Feijoada

My family (especially the munchkin) has been all about the chicken lately. I know its typically not the most exciting protein to work with but I actually think its one of the more versatile ingredients out there. It’s the perfect blank canvas for all kinds of spices and techniques, making it a perfect protein for

New Orleans Creole Shrimp with Maque Choux

Is it possible to love a city without ever visiting? While there is much debate about which cities are the best in the country, I’d argue that New Orleans has to be one of the top. And yes, I feel confident saying that even though I’ve never been… yet. I mean, it’s not difficult to

Seared Salmon with Black Rice, Yuzu, and Wasabi

I remember first discovering forbidden rice when I was a chef at a tech company in California’s Silicon Valley. Rice had always been a kind of throw away element to me. It certainly has its place on specific dishes (paella, curry, sushi, etc.) but I never really understood the purpose of putting a dome of

Slow Cooker Carnitas with Homemade Tortillas

I have a confession. I’m a bit of a taco snob. Having grown up in parts of California where Mexican food was just about as good (and authentic) as it is in Mexico, I developed a taco palate that prevents me from enjoying just any taco thrown my way. The filling needs to smack me

Shakshuka… Or “Yay, we’re not sick anymore” dinner

The saga of diversifying the munchkin’s palate continues. This week’s chapter unfortunately includes a painfully long family battle with an ugly virus so introducing any new flavors had to be put on the back burner. However, we all seem to be coming out of the dark as of last night (ish) so I jumped at
