     Mindy Segal shares her obsession in new cookbook 'Cookie Love'
    Mindy Segal has this great look she gives you, a look that says "What are you, a *#%$ idiot?" It is her default look, and pretty adaptable: She can deliver it with a smile, or a frown, with an air of puzzlement, or a hint of generosity. It is a reassuring...

  • Duck dynasty: Peking duck still packs the customers in

    Duck dynasty: Peking duck still packs the customers in
    Anyone who has followed my dispatches for any length of time knows that I like duck any way I can get it. Bright-pink roasted breast meat, slow-cooked Czech-style duck, duck confit — and don't get me started on foie gras — I love it all. But...

  • Salsa verde is green with possibilities as a sauce, dip or flavoring

    Salsa verde is green with possibilities as a sauce, dip or flavoring
    Of the myriad dishes that sound better in languages other than English — tonkotsu for pig broth, xiaolongbao for soup dumplings — you might want to add salsa verde. Because green sauce, although plain and serviceable, sounds about as...
  • Brown bread, a dying New England staple, found far from home

     Brown bread, a dying New England staple, found far from home
    For as long as I can remember, my favorite bread, the bread that I still crave above all breads, has come in a can. It's called brown bread, or outside of New England, where it is mostly unheard of, Boston brown bread. My grandmother, whose family came...
  • Replicate the Cadbury Creme Egg? Crazy, you say. Try it.

    Replicate the Cadbury Creme Egg? Crazy, you say. Try it.
    Maybe it was the 12 pounds of chocolate. Or the 40 pounds of sugar. Not to mention all the cream, milk and corn syrup — and the two dozen vanilla beans. My little project was turning into more of an obsession. Little project? I was only trying to...
  • For Napa Valley's Scarecrow and M. Étain, Old Hollywood and vines

    For Napa Valley's Scarecrow and M. Étain, Old Hollywood and vines
    The 70-year-old vines known as "the old men" have twisted and bulged over the years, their roots deep in that good Rutherford Bench soil. Birds and other creatures have made a home in the folds and crevices of the vines that make an extraordinary Napa...
  • Chefs: Hold the egg, please; not every dish needs one on top

    Chefs: Hold the egg, please; not every dish needs one on top
    Not that anyone's counting, but we may be in our sixth or seventh year of the Egg on Everything fad in Los Angeles restaurants, and, unlike kale, bacon or hamachi crudo, it shows no signs of going away — not with the lines at Egg Slut approaching...
  • Great dishes that taste better with an egg on top

    Great dishes that taste better with an egg on top
    Whether you're a classically trained chef, a diner cook or a parent, there are many reasons to deliver an egg — fried, poached, sous-vide to a perfect 62 degrees — to the top of the dish or bowl on the table. Because although this has become a...

    Jeni Britton Bauer of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams gives the scoop
    Jeni Britton Bauer, owner of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, didn't grow up loving ice cream. For her, it was actually a way to bring together her love of pastry and art, and a passion for blending perfumes. She was studying art history and fine art at Ohio...
