I make mince pie for Thanksgiving each year but this year I wanted to make my mincemeat using a British recipe, that calls for suet (beef kidney fat). I came up dry at a local artisanal butcher; any idea where to find in Brooklyn or Manhattan?
Summer is in full swing, which (hopefully) means trips to the park or the beach. If you’re taking a picnic along, you should know a few food safety rules so you can pack, transport, and eat your meal without the threat of food poisoning. Liz Weinandy
