At The Studio: Mung Quinoa Power Bowl

I know a lot of you like to see what I pull together for a quick lunch when I'm working at the Quitokeeto studio.

Chicory Soup & Camino Photos

As you drive south on Oakland's Grand Avenue toward Lake Merritt, on the right hand side, you'll notice a beautiful exposed brick building.

A Kitchen Visit with Remodelista

For those of who are curious about what the kitchen I cook in is like, I spent a recent afternoon with Sarah Lonsdale from Remodelista.

Near & Far: Recipes Inspired by Home & Travel

One of the reasons you write a cookbook is to share what you love about cooking with others. It's a feeling, as an author, you hope is infectious.

At The Studio: Dragonfruit Vodka Tonic

We don't have an elaborate kitchen at the QUITOKEETO studio. There's a sink, a single induction burner, a huge silver champagne bucket (that floods brilliantly with water and ice-packs for "refrigeration"), a stack of cutting boards, and as you can imagine, no shortage of knives.

Magic Ancho Chile Relish

I have a couple of announcements before we dive into today's recipe. First! It feels a bit surreal, but there are only two weeks until Near & Far is released.

Broiled Saffron Dates

If you've been to my house at any point in recent months, you've likely had these dates. They take only slightly more effort to make than placing dates unadorned on a plate.


I've started to post some of the events and book signings I'll be doing in September and October related to the release of Near & Far.

Super Onigiri

Onigiri are so cute! I make these little on-the-go rice balls all the time with leftover rice, and whatever fillings and seasonings are convenient and on hand.

Thai Zucchini Soup

My intent here was to make a chilled, pureed, Thai curry soup. It would be summery and refreshing, and at the same time, strong with green curry flavor.

Favorites List (08.08.15)

And a few favorite things from around the house, pictured above clockwise from top left. Leaves & Flowers Rosella Mint I drink it cold-brewed & iced, fresh marjoram, white pine deodorant, natural fiber jewelry, dried flowers.

Summer Drink Ideas

I'm delivering a list of quenchers today. A quick summer drink round-up to keep you hydrated and full of good ingredients while enjoying the sunshine.

Chia Breakfast Bowl

I know many of you are always on the lookout for quick, healthy breakfast ideas, and I have a solid for you.

Summer Melon Salad

I made this quick melon salad with the frog prince of melons - the piel de sapo. It has creamy, sweet, pale green flesh, and a blotched, pebbled green-yellow appearance.

Seed Pâté

Make this seed pâté when you want something in your refrigerator that can easily assimilate into just about any snack or meal.

Printing a Cookbook

Settle in for a longer post than usual - this one covers some territory. I took a bit of a field trip a couple of weeks back.

Summer Berry Crisp

Heading into the holiday weekend, I thought I'd share this variation of my favorite summer berry crisp.

Iced Green Tea

There was a man behind me at the grocery store the other day. I was in the bulk section surrounded by large jars of dried herbs, tea blends, spices, and sea vegetables.

Red Lentil Dumplings

I thought I'd jot off a quick post for those of you who like to see what I pack to eat when I travel.

Cherry Smoothie

Two days from now I'll be en route to Hong Kong. It's a quick trip to one of the world's great cities, and I'm excited to have quite an adventure planned.
