154: Bluefish, Aprons, Iced Coffee

We read an interesting and disturbing story in the New York Post which was basically highlights from the excellent book, Real Food, Fake Food. Be warned though if you do read it you may never enjoy sushi again.

We extoll the virtues of a favorite local and strong-tasting fish, bluefish.

For two women who spend so much time in the kitchen, we both have trouble wearing an apron to protect our clothes from spatters, but Marisa recently discovered an apron she wants to wear all the time.

We talk about the pleasures of ice coffee, at home and from shops around Philly.

And at the market this week, we are grabbing all the corn.

Does the Cut Change the Flavor? NPR was interested in how slicing and dicing affects a food’s flavor and so are we.

We talked about tonnato sauce, that wonderful chilled Italian tuna sauce. And here’s the recipe:

Tonnato sauce (Adapted from Joy of Cooking)

Makes 2 cups

  • One 6-ounce can tuna packed in oil, drained
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (homemade preferred!)
  • 5 anchovy fillets, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons drained capers
  • 3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • Black pepper to taste

Put everything in the blender or food processor and puree until smooth.

Do you switch up what spirits you drink in the summer? We do.

Summer pies!  Marisa recently tried and loved this unusual pie dough recipe.

And finally, it’s time for peaches. We especially like those grown at Three Springs Fruit Farm.
