Nikki Sawyer Moore bug 2013These Green Tea “Matcha” Madeleines are the result of a kitchen mishap. Yesterday was warm, spring seemed like it might finally be ready to make an appearance, and I wanted nothing more than to whip up some ice cream and enjoy it without having to eat it under a blanket for warmth. Weeks ago, on a whim, I’d picked up some culinary grade Matcha green tea powder from the store and with all the other ingredients for ice cream on hand it seemed I was well on my way to enjoying a fresh batch of green tea ice cream. Then things went wrong. Read the full story

Tom Yum Goong: Thai Hot & Sour Soup with Shrimp

Nikki Sawyer Moore bug 2013I have always loved the folk story about stone soup. Hungry travelers arrive at a town whose inhabitants all turn down their requests for food. In response, the resourceful travelers build a fire and set a pot filled with water and a stone upon it. The townspeople, curious to see what the travelers are doing, venture out of their homes to ask what they are making with only a stone and water. Read the full story

dining news bugIt wasn’t hard to tell Wednesday morning that Kindred Restaurant on North Main Street was just 24 hours from opening its doors: Workers were finishing a few last-minute tasks, a delivery of fish arrived, and the phone was ringing.

This Thursday, Feb. 19, is opening night for the long-awaited eatery at 131 N. Main St. Restaurateurs Joe and Katy Kindred have turned the century-old druggist’s shop and former gnome museum into what promises to be a showcase – not only for history but for a menu of “chef-driven” cuisine relying on fresh ingredients from small, mostly local producers.

Shrimp Jambalaya

Nikki Sawyer Moore bug 2013dsc_0409Today is Fat Tuesday and while I’m not meandering down Bourbon Street with a daiquiri in hand, I am enjoying a bowl of shrimp jambalaya here in icy North Carolina. I’ve always loved the food of New Orleans. Decadent and bold in flavor, it’s casual and raucous and best enjoyed without rush and with good company. Read the full story

Valentine’s Day truffles

ready-for-gifting

Truffles for the holiday of love.

Nikki Sawyer Moore bug 2013Through my business, FOOD LOVE, I’ve taught several Valentine’s day cooking lessons. The phone call typically comes from the guy in the relationship. He shares with me how his girlfriend or wife loves to cook, how she is always lamenting that she wants to be more creative in the kitchen, and how she has mentioned more than once that she wants classes.

Nikki Sawyer Moore bug 2013

It used to not even be a question. When it came to meat, I’d always choose pork shoulder over the pork tenderloin or a chicken thigh or leg over a boneless, skinless chicken breast. Then I started to brine these leaner cuts and the decision became a lot more complicated. Read the full story
