Gooey, tender, salty, and chocolaty with a floral current, these Rose Chocolate Chunk Cookies are worth a double batch. I adapted these ever so slightly from Thalio Ho's beautiful book, Wild Sweetness simply to include whole grains.
It’s time for an installment of Cookbook Club, and this month, we’re pulling Black Girl Baking off the shelf. Nominated for a James Beard award, Jerrelle Guy’s book offers “wholesome recipes inspired by a soulful upbringing.”
The award-winning restaurant, Darjeeling Express, began as a dinner party with friends; Indian food lovingly cooked from family recipes from generations past. In her book, "Asma's Indian Kitchen," Asma reveals the secret to her restaurant success, her immigrant story, and how food brought her home. Let's explore the story and the food together, starting with saffron-hued Chicken Chaap.
