Why You Should Shop At Farmers Markets When You Travel

https://andyfood.com/shop-farmers-markets-travel/

When I travelled in the olden days, before 9/11, I brought back food in jars and bottles.  The 3-ounce liquid rule makes this impossible on any trip where I’m doing carry-on. When I check a bag I’ll stick in a bottle or two, and maybe some jars. BUT … I have to assume that the suitcase will be… Read More

https://andyfood.com/vadouvan-crusted-ahi-in-under-30-minutes/

Vadouvan is a French culinary homage to the Asian spices and flavors found in curries, and it’s one of my favorite things to have in a jar in my kitchen. Vadouvan is spicy because it’s made with a lot of spices, but it’s not the sort of spicy denoted on menus by small red chilies… Read More

https://andyfood.com/pizza-my-never-the-same-twice-favorite-thing-to-make-for-dinner/

A hobby says a lot about a person. If your hobby is rebuilding engines or needlepoint you take on projects that span weeks or months and probably have a lot of patience. When you cook for pleasure the results aren’t exactly instantaneous, but they’re fast in the scheme of things. Cookies-in-an-hour is the sort of motivation that got… Read More
