appetizers & recipes: sigara böreği (turkish spring-like rolls)

I hosted a gathering and a friend brought these delectable little appetizers that flew off platter. I had to know what they were and how to make them. She told me what they were called and gave me the recipe, which she knew off the top of her head. With only 6 ingredients it is easy to remember and once you’ve made them you will see that they are equally as easy to make. For years we massacred the name of this tasty, savory treat. We came as close to a phonetic spelling as possible. We called them “suh-garrah bo-reh-gah”. I did a little research and discovered that this is a widely enjoyed meal in countries such as Turkey, Greece, Armenia, Bosnia, Serbia, and Albania just to name a few. The actual spelling is Börek (Turkey) as well as Burek(Bosnia and Serbia) and Boereg (Armenia). No matter how it is... Read the Rest →

tartlicious tuesday’s: corn and shitake tart with cornmeal pâte brisée

This gorgeous tart is an essential. It makes a flavorful main dish at breakfast, lunch or dinner. It can be served as an appetizer or a side. It is visually pleasing and looks particularly handsome on a Thanksgiving Day table. The recipe comes from Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook. We made two minor adjustments to the tart. First, the original tart is a corn and shitake tart. However, we felt that a mushroom mix tastes superb, adding more depth to the tart. Secondly, the amount of corn was adjusted from two cups to one and a half. There was just too much corn in the original recipe. The dough for this tart is a cornmeal pâte brisée . This dough is a flavorful complement to this and many other savory tarts. One of the fun aspects of this dough is using the trimmed scraps after the tart pan is fitted with... Read the Rest →

decor & design: fashion & food

To launch our Kitchen series, we thought we would start off with a “Red” kitchen to complement our MyFudo™ colors. Photos taken by the talented Michael Higginson, and Irina Danilova. It’s bold, vibrant, and eye-catching. I’d also love to hear some ideas from all you readers out there. What is your dream kitchen? What color schemes would you like to use? What kitchen gadgets would you like to adorn your space? Have you ever heard the saying “everyone gathers around the kitchen?” It’s supposed to be THE place that brings friends and family together. Food, wine, and conversation make the kitchen the liveliest and most fun place in the house. What would you consider the perfect outfit in your kitchen? Would it be casual clothing? Bunny slippers and all? A couture apron with red lipstick? Or simply your birthday suit? My whims of fancy really depend on what the occasion... Read the Rest →
