the ski trip

The après-ski vibes Adam can only dream of (PHOTOGRAPH BY GEORGE SILK)OKAY, SO I REALIZE THIS MAY NOT BE the most obvious opening line for an essay in a food magazine, but do you remember where you were when Lorenzo Charles grabbed a last-second air ball and dunked it, lifting one-in-a-million underdog NC State over Hakeem Olajuwon, Clyde Drexler, and the University of Houston in the NCAA men’s basketball championship game?I do. Spring break. 1983. I was sitting on one of those cheap fire-retardant sofas in a condo in Park City, Utah. By myself. I was 13 years old.

bathtub gin

PARTIES ARE A time to embrace the absurd, and if there is anything more absurd than filling your bathtub with an ungodly amount of ice and using it to store all your drinks for the evening, I don’t want to know about it. This is something I do mostly out of necessity (though the photo op ain’t bad either). See, the refrigerator in my Brooklyn apartment has the capacity for about seven items at a time, making it impossible to store an evening’s worth of wine and beer.

just add ketchup

OF ALL THE THINGS I EXPECTED to happen in the realm of food once I had kids—a sharp uptick in Cheerios, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, chicken tenders, and macaroni and cheese—broccoli was nowhere on that list. I ate it growing up (defrosted, steamed) but not with any enthusiasm. When I began cooking on my own, I was far too interested in leafy greens, broccoli rabe, and cauliflower for ho-hum broccoli trees to ever take center stage in my kitchen.This changed when I got pregnant with my first child and my craving for iron-rich green vegetables—and especially broccoli—was constant. An attempt to re-create a cousin’s broccoli slaw—thinly sliced raw florets tossed with almonds, dried cranberries, and a shallot buttermilk ranch—led to my eating the entire giant bowl standing in the…
