September 20, 2016 - Radio Kitchen - Peaches

As the summer winds down we are still blessed with peaches, fresh from Maryland orchards.  This year's crop has been delicious, and I can't stop buying them.  And of course, the question is, what do I do with all these peaches.  And Chef Jerry Pellegrino of Schola Cooking School has some good ideas.

Homemade Pasta

September  13, 2016 - Radio Kitchen - Homemade Pasta

To say that we are living under an avalanche of fresh Maryland tomatoes is quite an understatement.  They are everywhere, and each year we see more and more varieties. 

One way of storing away this abundance is to put up tomato sauce, something we have talked about on this show before. 

And as Chef Jerry Pellegrino, of Schola Cooking School has noted, if we're going to talk about home made tomato sauce, sooner or later we're going to have to talk about home made pasta.

September 6,2016 - Radio Kitchen - What To Do With All That Produce II

Last week we gave you a useful little show chock full of ideas for using all that summer produce that is piling up around us.  And this week we'll do it some more.  And Chef Jerry Pellegrino of Schola Cooking School and I think people are probably a little overwhelmed with all the good things that are out there, courtesy of our great Maryland farmers.

August 30, 2016 - Radio Kitchen - What To Do With All That Produce:  Part 1

As the growing season reaches its crescendo in Maryland over the next few weeks, a lot of us will be prowling the markets with hungry eyes.

I for one will often buy now and worry later about how I'm going to use all that great Maryland produce that's out there.  So Chef Jerry Pellegrino of Schola Cooking School and I are going to offer a two part series of shows called "What to do with all that produce".  So let's dig in.

First, the produce then the solution.

August 23, 2016 - Radio Kitchen - Making Ice Cream

Although I do try to watch what I eat and then eat as healthy as I can, I find that at times during the summer I can't resist a big bowl of ice cream.  So it is with great, if slightly guilty, interest that I try to learn about making ice cream at home.  And Chef Jerry Pellegrino of Schola Cooking School, has been studying this.

Summer Salsas

August 16, 2016 - Radio Kitchen - Summer Salsas

During these hot weeks of summer a lot of us pay more attention to the cooking traditions of people who know hot weather, and understand how to thrive in it.  The Latino world is wide and complex, and its influences on our cooking is indisputable.  And as Chef Jerry Pellegrino of Schola Cooking School has learned, quite a few Latino staples have become our staples.  The classic example is salsa.

August 9, 2016 - Cynthia Glover and Spain - Radio Kitchen

When we travel abroad, inevitably we come back with new ideas about what we can do in the kitchen.  So when I learned that one of my friends was traveling on El Camino de Santiago de Campostella in Spain, I had to hear what she ate that impressed her.  Cynthia Glover is a good friend of ours, and one of the most knowledgeable food and travel writers we know.  She also owns Smart Works, a marketing  communications company that caters primarily to culinary clients.       

August 2, 2016 - Radio Kitchen - Market Report

It's been a wild and crazy year so far, but we are at the highpoint of the local produce season.  To get an idea of how things have been going since that unexpectedly warm March, we went to my favorite market and talked tomy farmer buddies to get a sense of how things were going.  And we bet you can guess the gist of what we heard.

July 26,2016 - Radio Kitchen - The Seven Spices of Lebanon

A couple weeks ago we talked about the delicious cuisine of Morocco, so we thought we would sail to the other end of the Mediterranean and visit Lebanon.  While we here in Maryland are awash in fresh produce, it might pay to look at a culture that venerates vegetables and knows what to do with them.

July 19, 2016 - Radio Kitchen - Rachel Armistead and Summer Sauerkraut

A few weeks ago, when I was in Paris, I checked out Brasserie Lipp, the celebrated Alsatian bistro in Saint Germaine de Pres.  And of course, front and center was their famous choucroute garni... which is French for fancy sauerkraut.  As it happens, we know a lady  from here in Maryland who is a sauerkraut maven:  Rachel Armistead, from a tiny place called The Sweet Farm in Frederick has started a cottage industry making the tangy stuff.
