Meringues, An Easy Way To Dazzle

Food: Samin Nosrat’s cookbook, ‘Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat’

This is the time of year when people who love to feed other people strive to dazzle. It’s turning dinner into pageantry. That means trying something new, different and, if possible, hazardous. Which is why I just spent Sunday coaxing the oozy egg white into a sweet, puffy, pale and insubstantial cloud of meringue achieved by sugar, hope and the balky second-hand Kitchen Aid mixer in my pantry.

’Tis the Season To Love Ballet

Dance: The Nutcracker 2017

Even people who otherwise would never consider taking the time to see a dance performance often wind up seeing one around the holidays. There are family members and friends of those who are reluctant dance fans who may be enchanted with the thought of seeing the festive staging, costuming, music and yes, dance, that all Nutcracker productions offer.

Take the Stress Out Of Holiday Meals With Takeaway

Food

Sometimes, you’re just too darn tired from clearing the path into the woods, chopping the tree, stringing the lights, making the ornaments, crafting the artisanal gifts, thinking about who is gluten free, who is vegan and who has nut allergies. Sometimes you just don’t want to cook the holiday dinner. Don’t worry, we have lots of mouth-watering local take-away options.

Turkey, Crackly As A Potato Chip

Food

 It’s back. Thanksgiving. That holiday least burdened by guilt, longing, sorrow and disappointment. It’s about food. Just food. There’s no worry about measuring up, pleasing people you love and satisfying people you like with perfect presents. It’s easy. There’s just food. Lots of it.
Still, it is a holiday bound by tradition. Break the rules, surprise people, strive to cut new ground at your peril.
I know.

Curated Comfort at Reservoir

Home

Don’t be fooled by the “back door” entrance to Reservoir, Hendricks - Churchill’s new pop-up shop in Sharon. Tucked behind JP Gifford’s and Smitty’s Barbershop at 16 Main St., you will be instantly transported into what feels like the relaxed front room living space of an inviting family home.
Heide Hendricks, who clearly has a knack for cultivating comfortable and welcoming surroundings, will warmly greet you with a sunny smile. Spend a moment and you’ll see there is much more to this pop-up shop than just great home furnishings.

Salt Of The Earth And Table

Food

Paul Noth’s cartoon in a recent New Yorker magazine had a wise man on a mountaintop telling a beseeching climber, “The meaning of existence is this thirty-two-dollar jar of salt.”
Time was when salt was traded for gold, slaves and sugar. Now it’s traded for dinner party marks.
