rach’s letter

this year has been strange for us all. Disjointed. It feels like a car with one wheel stuck in the sand, spinning but not moving; then it catches and we lurch out of control. But 2020 has also made me more mindful than ever of just how lucky I am. Over the last 12 months, in addition to witnessing the crises that have gripped our country, I lost my dog of 15 years, then lost my home to a fire. I’m grateful to the first responders who saved my life. I’m grateful for the opportunity to rebuild. I’m grateful I had a place to stay when my world caught fire, where I could take sanctuary, and that I learned, in a way I hadn’t really understood before, the difference between…

heros welcome

There wasn’t enough chicken soup in the world to soothe our souls in 2020. And getting ingredients for the actual chicken soup proved difficult for many of us as COVID landed Stateside, straining the supply chain and leaving food pantries understocked. So industry leaders spoke up, stood up, and got to work. Some chefs transformed their restaurants into soup kitchens while others delivered meals to frontline workers. Activists and average Joes collected donations to keep growers afloat. At the same time, as Black Lives Matter protests moved through our streets, chefs found ways to nourish the marchers and the movement. In a year full of shadows, many people worked to break through and bring some light. Here, we salute the chefs, educators, and leaders who saw a hungry society, both…

rach’s sunday dinner

For when you have more than 30 minutes During the holiday season, I love making slow-braised meats because they’re foolproof and very comforting. Cooking low and slow virtually guarantees a tender, juicy piece of meat. And what I love about this delicious braised pork is how much it reminds me of another fave from my childhood, my mom’s cider beef. Both dishes are sweet and savory and finished with a tangy twist of crème fraîche. COLOR EQUALS FLAVOR FOR ME. I TAKE THE TIME TO BROWN THE MEAT ON ALL SIDES BEFORE BRAISING, WHICH IS WHY I DON’T USE A SLOW COOKER. IF YOU USE A DUTCH OVEN, YOU CAN BROWN AND COOK IN THE SAME POT.—RACH Hard Cider–Braised Pork Shoulder SERVES 6 TO 8 Serve with the mashed potatoes and parsnips, or with wide…
