Family and cooking go hand in hand, and family recipes can stay with us our whole lives. But, most of us can’t claim our family invented the reuben.

What would the world do without cheese, corn flakes, popsicles, and chocolate chip cookies?

We love strawberries and their incredible versatility, especially when they’re in season.  Bon Appétit delineates the many varieties.

New research might make asparagus the new superfood. According to NPR’s The Salt, a compound in asparagus lowered blood pressure in rats. Time to change your dinner plans? Read More

marcus samuelsson, GQ, 10 essentials

how to grill vegetables, grill, summer

This week, the weather heated up, and we noticed. We learned how to choose the right foods to keep our cool despite the rising temperatures. And surprisingly, that can eating more spicy food. Our solution for that: Marshall’s Haute Sauce. (I’ll take Serrano Ginger Lemongrass, thank you.) The vegetarian, gluten-free, locally-sourced condiments will work wonderfully with our grilled veggies, especially now that we know the secrets to getting the perfect grill marks on our vegetables. And we’ll give soft beverages—our refreshing, trusty heat reducers—closer consideration. (Who would have known that the average American consumes about 140 gallons of soft drinks a year?) And to top it all off, a funny video: GQ asks Marcus about the 10 things he can’t live with out.

Nook at Night offers tacos, and not without suggested beer pairings.

Only in New York can you so easily find hot, late-night snacks—maybe that’s how New Yorkers are able to sustain the city that never sleeps. Now, the Nook at Red Rooster offers its own after-dark treat.

Stop by the takeout window between 11:30pm and 3:00am Friday and Saturday, and choose your pick of skirt steak, goat, and sweet potato tacos at one for $4 and two for $7.  (Has there ever been a better match than beer and tacos?)

Heard of the cronut? If not, give it a few days. According to The Observer, the hyper-speed tempo of modern-day food blogs sure can draw a lot of attention to new restaurants and trends, but not necessarily for the long-run and not necessarily for the better.

Is up always the way of the future? For farming, at least according to this NPR story.

Once again, Mark Bittman takes on the meat we eat, this time with an eye for the economics of what, how, and why we buy, and sixteen meals with smaller portions of meat. Do the same with a broccolini stir fry with beef and pasta with tuna. Read More

This past week, the Abba Museum opened in Stockholm, Sweden to hundreds of fans ready to relive the unique saga of the native pop group. (Too bad Marcus, a lifelong fan, wasn’t around for the unveiling.) The museum, in collaboration with the Music Hall of Fame, boasts unparalleled memorabilia, a full-service dance floor and the actual studio console with which Abba recorded their signature sound.

The group, who formed in 1972, released 8 chart-topping albums, won the Eurovision Song Contest and extensively toured the world until their break-up in late 1982; a legacy that would spawn countless tributes to the group. Read More

This week we took a rather technical view to recipes and the everyday foods we eat. We learned how to make fresh pasta, as well as the secrets to the perfect roast chicken (and ways to use the left-overs). We saw the health benefits and versatility of in-season arugula, and learned about a new way of eating in order to increase longevity. And finally, we transformed your store-bought, unhealthy dip-recipes into homemade healthy versions to liven up your next party. Here’s a look at our most popular stories of the week: Read More

Queen Silvia greets the press line at Red Rooster.

“My mom called me this morning to tell me everything that could go wrong. She just knows what a big deal this is for me.”

The mood at Red Rooster on Wednesday morning was equal parts excitement and frenetic energy as the team got ready for the arrival of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden. Marcus’s nerves were no exception–the dry cleaner didn’t have his favorite shirt ready and it was pouring rain outside. But as they say, the Queen waits for no one and so everyone had to be on point for the royal luncheon. Read More
