  • Alex's Day Off

    For a dish that really screams spring, Alex plans a succulent lamb stew with earthy and fresh parsnips - the first vegetables of the spring season. Alex serves it with a bright and crisp pea salad drizzled with a tangy vinaigrette. Plus, whole cherries sautéed in grappa and dusted with cinnamon.

    For Alex, the perfect day off involves dinner and a movie with one of her close buddies. The evening starts with chicken soaked in a tangy buttermilk marinade, then fried to a golden brown. To go with the fried chicken, a fresh side of juicy homemade pickles. Next, skillet corn bread baked in a cast iron skillet and paired with a little caramelized onion jam. She tops it all off with a fizzy chocolate egg cream.

  • Alex's Day Off

    For her best friend's birthday, Alex is planning a simple soy braised duck with a green peppercorn glaze that is drizzled over the duck at the last minute. Alex serves the duck with the perfect partner - lentils paired with cippolini onions cooked in duck fat. And, what's a birthday without a cake? She takes a moist yellow birthday cake and drops a layer of goopy marshmallow frosting right on top

    Today is all about really good pub food, some pure fun food. When Alex walks into a pub, the first thing she orders is a juicy burger. Alex's version of a burger involves her secret blend of ground beef mixed with caramelized vegetables and topped with melt-y cheese. To go with that burger, a charred tomato soup topped with a crouton and way too much melted cheese bubbling over the edges. For sides, some tangy red cabbage coleslaw and golden fried zucchini spears.
