it’s all easy

In each issue of this magazine, we aim to pack the Dinner Tonight, Good Food Fast and Good Life departments with recipes and articles that are easy to put into action, even on busy nights. (We know you have 9,000 things on your to-do list and making beef Wellington and gratin Dauphinoise is not one of them.) So this month we’re also dedicating our feature stories to the same goal. In “Divide & Conquer” we show you how to split up cooking duties by doing the majority of the prep in the morning and just a few finishing steps in the evening. For anyone who wants to have people over, but avoid hours of cooking and a table full of 8 variations on potato salad and no main dish, we…

saving the galega

For Love and Olive Oil Some of João Miguel Rosado’s fondest memories were forged on his grandparents’ 12-acre farm in rural Portugal. As a child, he found solace and adventure in their groves of Galega olives, a variety found in Alentejo and other parts of central and eastern Portugal. There are reports of exceptional Portuguese olive oil being imported by the Romans as far back as 2,000 years ago. It’s likely that oil came from the native Galega olive, which makes up 80% of the olive trees in the area today. But their numbers have been on the decline. The olives don’t produce nearly as much oil as better-known types like Arbequina. “In a super-intensive olive grove, you can produce 22 liters of oil from 100 kilograms of olives,” says Rosado. “With…

table talk with giada de laurentiis

Tap here for Giada’s easy Spaghetti with Rosemary & Lemon recipe from her new cookbook. Finish this sentence: To me, cooking is … Therapeutic. After a chaotic day, I love getting lost in a recipe. The entire process from start to finish—the chopping, the aromas, tasting along the way—feels like a meditation. It brings me such as sense of calm and joy. What food says home to you and why? Pasta. My grandfather used to have a pasta factory in Torre Annunziata, right outside of Naples. When I was a kid, he opened up his own Italian grocery store in the U.S., and I used to spend hours there with him, watching him make pasta from scratch. What is always in your fridge? Greens (arugula, kale, chard), cooked brown rice, Parmigiano-Reggiano, fennel and dark chocolate. Beer, wine…

the perks of micro workouts

The evidence for short bursts of activity has been mounting for some time. (Remember the 7-minute workout?) But now there’s research showing that even really small sessions can have bona fide benefits. They’re called exercise snacks. “And they’re somewhere between that short walk to the water cooler in prepandemic times and high-intensity interval training,” says Scott Lear, Ph.D., the Pfizer/Heart and Stroke Foundation Chair in Cardiovascular Prevention Research at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver. Think: challenging enough to jack up your heart rate, but only a minute or less at a time—such as 20 seconds of squat jumps, stair climbing, burpees or a fast 60-second run down your block. These short-and-sweet exercise snacks help build cardiorespiratory fitness, a major indicator of overall health. “Increasing your cardiorespiratory fitness can lower your risk…

pit stops worth the stop

ST. HELENA, CA The Station This reimagined convenience store next to the Napa Valley Petroleum Company is the ideal spot for a quick refuel when cruising through wine country. The latest venture from the owners of the legendary Gott’s Roadside burger chain, the Station serves up locally roasted coffee and takeaway fare behind roll-up garage doors that pay tribute to its 1930s roots as a filling station. Seasonal quiche, toast selections—avocado, sweet potato or almond butter and honey—salads, grain bowls and sandwiches (try the Avocado B.L.T.) are just what you need before that next flight of cabernets. EAGAN, MN Farmer’s Grandson Eatery Set inside an old Shell gas station convenience store south of St. Paul, Farmer’s Grandson Eatery slings BBQ staples like brisket, ribs and pulled pork, tacos, sandwiches and burgers—of course, there’s one…
