Cooking Tip

The Key to Great Ribs -

Great ribs are made by applying multiple layers of flavor. Use a rub or marinade to apply the base layer. Swab on a mop sauce to apply a second layer of flavor and keep the ribs moist during cooking. Apply the barbecue sauce at the end as a laquer or glaze. (For even more flavor, sear it onto the meat directly over a hot fire.) And of course, the wood smoke provides the most important flavor of all.

Chicken Salad!

Some salads seem particularly all-American. These are the kinds that turn up at church suppers, on the menus of rustic inns and restaurants off the beaten track, and in our grandmothers' handwritten "receipt" books. They are simple and good, and deserve, in these sophisticated times, not to be forgotten.


Chicken salad is the little black dress of salads.

Tarragon Chicken Salad

It is chic, adaptable, and wears well on dozens of occasions. You can dress it down and take it on a picnic or dress it up and serve it at a dinner party. This recipe for Tarragon Chicken Salad is both lush and abundant. Lush because of the way the chicken breasts are baked for maximum moistness, and abundant because it's chunky with chicken, celery, and walnuts. And like that little black dress... it can be packed for a picnic or served at a casual summer dinner party.

"Love, like a chicken salad or restaurant hash, must be taken with blind faith or it loses its flavor."

GAZPACHO - The Cold Soup Of Spain!

The hot, hot, humid days of summer make us yearn for cool liquid refreshment. Strength for tennis matches, boating, biking and sunbathing needs to be kept up with more than the odd cocktail and tonic. This pretty summer soup, gazpacho, was originally a native of southern Spain, but it has now gained worldwide popularity. Everyone in Spain has a slightly different version of this "liquid salad," depending on family traditions and local produce.

Gazpacho

Gazpacho is usually a tomato-based, vegetable soup, generally served cold. Gazpacho has ancient roots. There are a number of theories of its origin, including as an Arab soup of bread, olive oil, water, and garlic that arrived in Spain and Portugal with the Moors, or via the Romans with the addition of vinegar. Once in Spain it became a part of Andalusian cuisine, particularly Cordoba and Seville, using stale bread, garlic, olive oil, salt, and vinegar.

There are many modern variations of gazpacho, often in different colors and omitting the tomatoes and bread in favor of avocados, cucumber, parsley, watermelon, grapes, meat stock, seafood, and other ingredients. This traditional version of the refreshing summer soup, Gazpacho, is light and travels well, so don't forget it for your next picnic!
