Turkey Leftovers, B-Team-Style: Posole

November 26, 2015 | Posted by Sally Jackson

Leftovers might just be the best part of Thanksgiving dinner. Once the food coma has lifted and the those words “I’ll never eat again!” are long forgotten, a secret trip to the fridge for just one more serving of poached pears, or just a teeny sliver of gratin is always in order. And Bobby’s favorite Thanksgiving sandwich (see below)? It's enough to send you into a sweet tryptophan oblivion.

Up Your Cranberry Game

November 22, 2015 | Posted by Sally Jackson

Every year, about this time, I take part in The Great Cranberry Debate. It goes something like this (and it’s entirely in my head): Do I stick with my favorite simple sauce or branch out? Bobby makes a clementine cranberry sauce that’s so good, it has inspired me to try something new this year (while still making the classic, of course).

'Tis the Season for…Pumpkin Lattes!

November 14, 2015 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

Growing up, I got my first taste of pumpkin each year at the Thanksgiving table and not a moment before. I waited all year for my Mom’s famous pie to be served, my (rather large) slice piled high with freshly whipped cream. Fast forward many years later, and pumpkin spice flavored everything is everywhere!

A New Favorite Take on an Old Mediterranean Grain

September 20, 2015 | Posted by Sally Jackson

Packed with complex carbohydrates and fiber, delicious and hearty whole grains play an important part in the Mediterranean diet. Look beyond rice and pasta, because it’s worth getting to know farro, amaranth, millet, freekah and wheat berries. From the ubiquitous grain salads of the region to barley studded Italian minestrone soup to a purple-tinged French crepe made with buckwheat flour, there are as many traditional recipes as there are modern takes on these ancient grains. And yes! They’re delicious – Bobby wouldn’t have them all over GATO’s menu if they weren’t, but just as importantly to me, at least, whole grains are a healthy choice.

August 19, 2015 | Posted by The B-Team

There are varying definitions – the Wikipedia page claims that they are no more natural than the hothouse reds you see in the dead of winter at Gristede’s while other sites tout the history of these heritage fruits.

June 22, 2015 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

Farmers market tables are loaded with berries (at last). And what better thing to do with them than mix them into some ice cream?!
