MasterChef at Home: Maja Veit’s Herb-Loaded Dipping Oil

f you've been watching along at home, you'll know that the latest departure from the MasterChef kitchen was Maja Veit. The Tassie local saw her time in the competition come to an end after a team challenge that left her group having to cook to fight to keep a place in the series. Veit was eliminated a little earlier on in the competition but was welcomed back during Second Chance Week. In her exit interview after the show, Veit said: "I'm a little bit - beating myself up about that last challenge. But what an experience. It's been the most crazy, like, rollercoaster of my life. I never thought I'd make it to top 24, and to get this far... Yeah, it's an absolute privilege." Read the full story at Lifehacker

What grows together, goes together: 3 summer herb recipes

Herb-growers and chefs alike recommend using fresh herbs in your cooking, and Alex Cardoza, Boise-based chef and owner of Wild Plum Events, couldn’t agree more. Cardoza and his wife/co-owner, Tara Morgan, try to source ingredients locally whenever possible and adapt their Wild Plum menus to include dishes that feature what’s currently growing. “Think seasonal,” Tara says. “What grows together, goes together.” Herbs can be used as an accent — such as in a sauce or as a featured ingredient, like in a chimichurri, salsa verde or pesto. Morgan enjoys caprese salads in the summer, which allow herbs like basil to shine. Cardoza also recommends adding herbs to freshen up savory dishes with rich flavors. Read more on stltoday.com.

We’ve been using herbs all wrong. Here’s three recipes that get it right

We don’t need herbs,” says Mark Diacono, a man who has just written an entire cookbook about them. He goes on to call them “unnecessary” and adds, quite heartlessly, that “we can perfectly merrily eat for the rest of our lives without herbs and we will live”. However, they are also “the thing that makes the difference between feeding and eating,” he says, turning this dark tale into a light-filled parable. “It’s the unnecessary brilliance of [using herbs] that just makes you want to eat this delightful thing and get pleasure from it.” And so, in conclusion, we actually do very much need herbs on our plates and growing windowsills, and Diacono, food writer, photographer and creator of Otter Farm – a nursery designed to encourage people to grow “unusual and forgotten food” – is very willin...

Easy Homemade Garlic Herb Knots

Why hello giant garlicky, buttery, herby parmesan knots. Okay so confession time. Last weekend Malloree wanted to make us a particular pasta recipe she found. Earlier that day while shopping for the ingredients, I picked up store-bought garlic knots because, easy. And although delicious, they were so very small. I knew I could do better. So the following week, not only did I shoot/blog her version of the pasta recipe – which will be coming your way this Wednesday- but I also made these homemade garlic herb knots. What’s great about this recipe is that the garlic knots are made with pizza dough. I took my go-to pizza dough recipe and the only difference is that I used bread flour instead of all-purpose. I did this just so that the texture would be more tender. Get the recipe at Simply Sc...

Five recipes to make the most from herbs

I have spent decades designing kitchen gardens, growing and using an almost impossible variety of herbs at Otter Farm, at River Cottage and in my own small garden. Whether in the garden or kitchen, herbs are elevators, transporters engaging us in a way that a potato or a cauliflower, however glorious, cannot hope to. The elevating quality of herbs is really just awaiting your exploration. Summer savoury and tomatoes, dill and salmon, lovage and Lancashire cheese; these mark the merest tip of the herbal iceberg. You don’t even have to try to be clever with herbs: they offer a wealth of clothes for even the simplest ingredients to dress up in. Keep reading at The Times.

In a tiny strip mall, at one of the only Ethiopian restaurants in Alabama—that’s where my journey to making real niter kibbeh started. There, I met Gini Mohammed, one of the owners of The Red Sea Restaurant. We’d never met before, but Mohammed and I had an immediate rapport. We bonded a bit, talking about our children and what brought each of us to Alabama. Then we got down to business talking about the nuts and bolts of spiced butter. Niter kibbeh is a true backbone of Ethiopian cuisine, used to add sublime flavor at the start of cooking, or employed as a finishing element for an even bolder statemen...
