Can anyone report on the Roanoke, VA (and surrounding area) chow scene? Any good eats? Any diversity? Can you get decent sushi, Thai, Chinese, or Mexican? Decent bistros or bakeries? Any chefs cooking seasonal meals using local ingredients?
Ever wonder how many ways you can eat cookie dough? Here are some suggestions.
Behind the Business - Umami Burger
Umami Burger COO Gregg Frazer talks everything umami, fast-casual dining, and the newest additions to their menu.
Pressure Cooker Cola-Braised Beef Short Ribs
These braised beef short ribs are ready in just 30 minutes thanks to the pressure cooker method. The cola in the rich gravy doesn't overpower, but perfectly balances soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and the spices in the rub.
Easy Philly Cheesesteaks
Philly cheesesteaks are delicious but divisive. This easy version has thin-sliced rib eye, sautéed peppers, onions, and optional mushrooms, and Provolone (sorry, Whiz fans).
Red Velvet Cake
Red velvet cake is festive, fine-crumbed, moist, and delicious with cream cheese frosting.
Authentic Black Bean Recipe by Gregory
