But spirit-free cocktails aren’t for everyone; they can feel a little too much like boozy cocktails for some people. (The U.K. is way ahead of us in spirit-free bottlings for nonalcoholic drinks, but many will make their way to the U.S. in the coming months and years.) If you can make a salad dressing, you can make a nonalcoholic cocktail: It’s about layering flavors and getting the balance right. It’s worth remembering, too, that you don’t always need one-to-one substitutes; you’re not locked into imitating classic cocktails when you make nonalcoholic drinks for Dry January (or anytime). Cut the sweetnessDrinking soda or fruit juice is not the same as drinking a well-made nonalcoholic cocktail, in part because those drinks are straightforwardly sweet.

Here are nine things that you need to know about soul food. First, it was "soul music," then "soul brother," "soul sister," and ultimately "soul food."

A recent TikTok noted a few other popular "ghost kitchens" and Denny's announced this week that it would be testing two new "virtual brands" this year.

The much-loved biang biang noodles (the name refers to the sound of the noodles hitting the counter as they’re pulled) takes years of practice to master. While my dough is very similar to the one used for biang biang noodles, the process here is simpler. Using a strong or high-gluten flour like bread flour will result in chewier noodles, but if you’re out of bread flour, all-purpose will work just fine. Too much water compromises the texture of the noodles, making them gluey rather than springy.

Milk Powder Is the Key to Better Cookies, Brownies, and Cakes

Posted in Featured

But recently, I learned that there is a single ingredient that can make almost every baked good better: milk powder. Milk powder, also called powdered milk (not to be confused with malted milk powder), is what happens when you evaporate all the liquid out of milk—it’s essentially milk in its most concentrated form. What’s more, milk powder is ideal for the baking-heavy times we’re in: Its low moisture content means that it doesn’t have to be refrigerated—it can sit in your pantry for more than a year. Chef Christina Tosi, author of Momofuku Milk Bar and Milk Bar: Kids Only, says she can’t think of a dessert that milk powder wouldn’t improve. “Milk powder has an amazing way of adding a terrific baseline flavor,” she explains.

A few years ago, while on research trips for Living Bread in Europe, Leader saw just how significantly Robertson’s book (and bread) had influenced the culture.

Olive Oil Makes Great Cakes, and This Recipe Is Proof

Where butter is sweet, milky, and often in the background of a cake’s flavor, olive oil is earthy, grassy, and bold. An olive oil cake will always have a savory edge, sometimes even a backnote of bitterness, that a butter cake will lack. Which brings us to another benefit of olive oil cakes: longevity. “I think olive oil cakes kind of get better with age,” says Elizabeth Quijada, the pastry chef at Abraço, a New York City coffee shop that is known for their olive oil cake. Olive oil cake is the only thing we're eating for breakfast now.

Real Food Defined (The Rules)

Posted in Featured

Real food basically means anything not highly processed (like artificial additives) and containing only five or fewer whole ingredients. It means mostly avoiding ingredients you would not cook with at home. Here are the seven rules we followed during our original 100 Days of Real Food pledge: No refined grains (such as white flour or white rice); only 100 percent whole grain. No refined or artificial sweeteners (such as sugar, any form of corn syrup, cane juice, or the artificial stuff like Splenda); only honey and pure maple syrup in moderation. I promise, there’s still food left after eliminating everything mentioned in our rules!

On the other hand, I spent a couple years writing a tofu cookbook and have fully embraced making fresh soy milk at home. Compared to other plant-based alternative milk beverages, soy milk has more protein. In fact, soy milk possesses as much protein as whole cow’s milk—but it’s lower in calories and, luckily for me, lactose-free. Super fresh soy milk is easy to make at home and, frankly, tastes leagues better than the stuff sold in boxes—or even at dedicated tofu shops.

Step Aside, Potatoes: (Almost) Any Vegetable Has Gnocchi Potential

Posted in Featured

Though many recipes for gnocchi use potato as the base, a number of vegetables can be used to create the same enjoyable texture. The brainchild of chef de cuisine Gaby Maeda, State Bird’s carrot mochi is a bright orange, pillowy dumpling that, the first time I ate it, rang all the same bells as my favorite potato gnocchi. “Gaby was experimenting with different vegetables and really brought this dish to the plate,” Brioza told me. The simplest and most foolproof method, however, which I’ve turned to again and again, is a hybrid between classic potato gnocchi and ricotta gnocchi, made of just vegetables, ricotta cheese, and all-purpose flour. Second, you want to concentrate the flavor of the vegetable as much as possible, so it will shine through in the final gnocchi.

Though every Instant Pot model has the same basic multi-cooking functionality that made it a household favorite, some are more versatile than others.

For many years, it was that plant-based dairy largely failed to mimic the real thing in terms of texture, taste, and/or performance in cooking and baking. Plant-based dairy is now as mainstream in American supermarkets as the stuff from cows, and it’s among the fastest-growing food categories worldwide. Here in America, the plant-based dairy market grew nearly 30% in the last decade. The most common ingredients you’ll find in vegan dairy include coconut, coconut oil, tree nuts, oats, rice, olive oil, and avocado oil.

Vegan Sour Cream and Onion Dip Recipe

Vegan Sour Cream and Onion Dip Recipe

Posted in Trending

While plant-based dairy has come a long way from the early days of margarine and soy-only yogurts, plant-based sour creams have yet to meet the mark. Plant-based cream cheese, I’ve found, best approximates the flavor—and the texture—of sour cream, especially when mixed or blended, such as in this vegan dip. Miyoko’s, Kite Hill, or Violife vegan cream cheese all work well for this recipe, but I find that Miyoko’s, which is cashew-based, is best both in terms of texture and taste with Kite Hill a close second. I add dried onion pieces to the recipe for a slightly brighter final flavor and for additional texture, but you can omit it if you like. This recipe is adapted from The Art of the Perfect Sauce, which I wrote with chef Lorilynn Bauer.
