I am no Coi fan, but this news about the new chef at Daniel Patterson's soon to be new place in Oakland, Plum, made me very happy . I am SO looking forward to a visit to my home town to check it out this summer:
Jeremy Oldfield is an oatmeal painter of light. He takes the blank canvas—a canvas of whole-oat groats lovingly ground and soaked overnight—and breathes life into it; the kind of life that lives in tahini and miso paste, or coconut milk and caramelized bananas. He’s bold. He’s got vision. He’s an inspiration to oatmeal-lovers worldwide. (Click here for a loose recipe based on Jeremy's YDIAW video.)
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
Smoky-Sweet BBQ Beef Short Ribs
Beef ribs can stand up to strong flavors. Here, a spicy-sweet rub with chili powder, cumin, cayenne, garlic, and brown sugar coats the meat, which is roasted to tenderness. Finishing on the grill with a smoky chipotle barbecue sauce ensures the meat gets a nice char and the sauce lacquers.
