You might have to do a taste test for yourself through our on subscription meal service that delivers straight to your door. But first, a bit of history on these beloved dishes.
Following my last blog I wanted to share a salad that embodies the essence of the Mediterranean diet: Salad Niçoise. This is the most famous of all French salads. Its name comes from the city of Nice, on the Côte d’Azur in Provence, France. This French recipe employs tuna, green beans, hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, onion, capers, and potatoes. Essentially it is similar to our American Cobb salad except for fish, beans and potatoes instead of chicken, bacon and avocado.
This month we have introduced a hint of summer with our Mediterranean Roasted Chicken. You may have heard of ‘The Mediterranean Diet’ but what is it? The Mediterranean diet is a way of eating based on the traditional cuisine of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. While there is no single definition of the Mediterranean diet, it is typically high in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nut and seeds, and olive oil. How come it has become so popular and what are its benefits?
We don’t usually go anywhere over Spring break but this year we decided to take a last minute trip. There were a few criteria that had to be met – price, distance and a destination that would be a first for all three of us.

It is a recipe from Madhur Jaffrey’s Far Eastern Cookery. Seeing that I wrote a recent blog about why Americans should eat more lamb, I decided to try it this evening and it was so good that I wanted to share.Continue reading
When I was little my mother would occasionally refer to someone ‘making a hash of a situation’. It was a British colloquialism meaning ‘to make a mess’ or generally be clumsy in dealing with something. It was only later in life that I made the connection with the culinary term ‘hash’ which broadly speaking is a muddle of skillet-fried chopped meat, potatoes and vegetables.
