an unfamiliar ritual

MY FAMI LY HAS OUR THANKSGIVING system down to a T. Or, I should say, down to the manila folder in which we keep a decade’s worth of menus marked up with quantities and guest lists, keeping tabs on the first dish to go (mac and cheese) and the biggest hits (Dad’s chicken-and-waffles appetizer, Mom’s perfect squash soup). Every year I perform a sleight of hand, making sure we end up with an extra tray of cornbread dressing (p. 73), my favorite, that I can eat for days afterward, sometimes straight from the fridge like a teenager, until it’s gone. My brother mixes cocktails, his girlfriend roasts the turkey, and a family friend always brings the most beautiful carved glass platter decorated artfully with half-moons of winter fruit. Inevitably someone turns…

one pot, endless options

FROM LATE OCTOBER to early April, one piece of cookware takes up permanent residence on my stovetop, quietly burbling up hot pots and soups on cold nights.

TOASTED RICE powder gives Laotian larb its distinct pebbled texture and nutty flavor. Making it is easy: Slowly toast uncooked glutinous rice in a pan until it’s golden and deliciously fragrant, then pulse in a spice mill until it’s the consistency of coarsely cracked black pepper. Use it in cookbook author Lara Lee’s tofu larb recipe on p. 20 (and don’t skip her shiitake-and-soba stir-fry on p. 25). Make extra rice powder and keep the leftovers in a jar to add texture to noodles and salads…or another batch of that larb.…
