Recently, Gourmand and I decided to explore a bit further afield than usual. We drove North, through the cotton fields of Mississippi to Oxford, for a few days of local food and historic homes. Oxford is a charming, beautiful town with a serious literary bent. Heavily rebuilt after Union troops burned many of its buildings […]

It’s BBQ season and we’ve been treated lately to a great variety of ribs and chicken courtesy of some serious BBQ junkies from Texas. Peach, blackberry, coffee and many other marinades of secret origin led to platters of succulent, juicy ribs and soft, perfectly pullable chicken.  As delicious as coffee rubbed ribs sound, woman cannot live […]

As evident by the lack of recent posts, we’ve been spending a lot of time in the city’s dining establishments and very few nights at home cooking. An endless parade of house guests will do that to you. While it’s great for the soul, it’s not so good on the wallet and after too many nights of […]

Recently we found ourselves lousy with fresh, homemade ricotta. The ricotta in question was leftover from an the NOMA Art in Bloom Patron Party where we served ricotta and gremolata crostini to the well dressed masses. Leftover ricotta you say? How terrible could that possibly be? Well the next time you have 12 pounds of ricotta on […]

At long last my best friend Gena is paying us an overdue visit. This means that, on top of much gossip, catching up and horror movie watching (sorry, Gourmand), there will also be many visits to local veg friendly spots like Satsuma Cafe, Wandering Buddha, Beaucoup Juice and Superfood Bar. It also means a bunch of home […]

Hollygrove Market & Farm  is a weekly stop for us. Saturday morning goes something like this: groan and peel myself out of bed, feed the dog, attempt to work out and then limp over to Hollygrove to check out their fresh, local produce. Lately Hollygrove has been adding to its stock of local fruits, veggies […]

We write a lot about our dinners here at G&G. While we try to steer clear of the most glaringly unhealthy foods, featured recipes can often be heavy, crowd friendly recipes. Meals that are easy to put together, one pot affairs. Food that might be considered good for the soul, but bad for the waistline. […]

A friend of mine recently visited the newly opened Dijon Restaurant, located in the old fire house on Annunciation Street in the Lower Garden District. While we have not ventured there yet, her details of what sounded like a delicious dinner in a lovely setting inspired me to put together this recipe for a friend’s […]
