10 telling quotes from “Eat a Peach”

David Chang is one of the most influential restaurateurs of this century, a position he regards with no small amount of trepidation. And in Eat a Peach, Chang’s first memoir, the chef wrestles with his success as he chronicles his rise to prominence and the fame he’s experienced since. The beats of the book will be familiar to those who have followed Chang’s career, and much of it reads as if Chang is responding directly to those same people, critics included.

Chang gives the behind-the-scenes play by play for each of his restaurant openings, from growing pains at his first restaurant, the East Village’s Noodle Bar, to the “art project” that was fast-food, fried chicken restaurant Fuku, to his regrets around Momofuku’s critically panned Italian restaurant Nishi. He addresses his reputation for anger … Read more

Gluten Free Zucchini Muffins | On the Healthy Side

These tender gluten free zucchini muffins are made with healthy fats and some whole grains, and they’re relatively low sugar. Add chocolate chips, raisins, or chopped nuts.

These muffins are healthy-ish

Moist, tender, only lightly sweet and still really flavorful, these gluten free zucchini muffins are healthier than most, but definitely not “diet” muffins. They’re made with a combination of an all purpose gluten free flour blend and whole grain oat flour, and of course tons of zucchini (insert zucchini emoji here why isn’t there one?).

There’s only half a cup of sugar in the whole dozen+ batch of generously-sized muffins. I used to make them with raisins all the time, but I’ve transitioned to using chocolate chips almost exclusively. There aren’t that many mix-ins and for the love of Mike even just a few chocolate chips are so good in muffins.

Vacation Soups And Salads

Browse our easy cake recipes: from birthday desserts, chocolate truffles and lemon drizzle truffles to the right Victoria sponge – not forgetting plenty of gluten-free options. HOUSE’s editor, Mary Logan Bikoff, requested to try some cocktail recipes with an artisan vermouth that her husband, David, and his buddy Chase craft in small batches with earthy herbs and botanicals. We decided to make a celebration of it, they usually invited mates to the gorgeous courtyard at the Westside’s Summerour Studio (home to architecture firm Summerour & Associates and a surprising event venue) for an al fresco gathering after work. The Italian cypress trees, romantic creeping vines, and arched entryways evoked a rustic Tuscan property that set simply the fitting scene. A great way to attain the proper cake is to flip it upside-down, of course! These timeless recipes are nice for holidays, presents, special events, or simply to satisfy that candy … Read more

A consistently updated list of recommendations from Eater’s shopping newsletter

Since May I’ve had the pleasure of helming Eater’s shopping newsletter, Add to Cart, spotlighting the latest in cooking tools, food books, and drinks; merch for a good cause; and all the tableware and food-themed home goods that I would very much like to own (and thus, that I hope will pique your interest enough to click that “add to cart” button).

For that, there’s this post: Think of it as a consistently updated gift guide and home base for the Add to Cart universe.
