Barbeque: Cali Style

August 3, 2016 | Posted by The B-Team

You’ve undoubtedly heard of Carolina Barbeque and Texas BBQ but have you ever tried Santa Maria Barbeque? Unlike the aforementioned styles, Santa Maria Barbeque doesn’t involve a long, slow cooking method or sweet sauces, but is instead a menu featuring a well-seasoned California tri-tip cooked over native red oak coals on a special hand-cranked grill, accompanied by pinquinto beans, salsa, green salad, and garlic bread.

This July 4th, just Grill It!

July 1, 2016 | Posted by Bobby Flay

This holiday weekend, like most weekends in the summer, you will find me in front of my grill doing what I do for a crowd...Friends and family will drop in and out all weekend and they will all have one thing in common...empty stomachs that need to be filled! So this July 4th, I am serving up juicy Crunch Burgers, Spiced Rubbed NY Strip Steaks with Sherry Vinegar Steak Sauce and instead of the usual pickle and mustard based potato salad, (not that there is anything wrong with that) I am thinking of something a bit more flavorful... grilled new potatoes, crispy bacon and green onion tossed in a garlicky buttermilk dressing...YUM! And, since no celebration is complete without a fabulous cocktail, there will be pitchers of Rose Sangria, scented with summer peaches and raspberries, in the fridge all weekend long! Make it!

Be safe, drink responsibly, and take a few minutes to thank all those brave men and women who fought hard and gave their lives for our freedom! Happy July 4th!

Rhubarb: The Vegetable That Acts Like a Fruit

May 18, 2016 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

May is all about vegetables on and one of the most popular springtime vegetables is rhubarb. That’s right, I said vegetable. Did you know that rhubarb is actually a vegetable, not a fruit?

Welcome to Rhubarb Waffle Heaven

May 12, 2016 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

Rhubarb: you either love it or hate it. There really seems to be no gray area when it comes to this ruby red vegetable…that’s right, I said vegetable. In the US it is considered a fruit, but it actually is a vegetable!

How to Get Your Grain Bowl On

January 6, 2016 | Posted by Sally Jackson

Make no mistake, the bowl is definitely having a moment. Açai bowls, grain bowls, savory porridge bowls…all the cool kids are eating them (at least that’s how it appears on Instagram). Is it trendy? Yes. But is it also an awesome, endlessly customizable, easy method for delicious clean eating? YES. I’m definitely on the bowl bandwagon.

The Perfect Fruitcake

December 23, 2015 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

The poor, maligned fruit cake…probably one of the most hated cakes in the existence of baking. Is it any wonder? Would you want an incredibly dense, overly sweet, horribly boozy “cake” chock-full of fluorescent-colored candied fruit pieces?

Shrimp Cocktail Goes Green

December 18, 2015 | Posted by Elyse Tirrell

In December, with holiday parties filling up every weekend, I thought it would be a great idea to reintroduce Bobby’s take on the perfect party hors d’oeuvre: shrimp cocktail. Next time you have a craving for this well-loved appetizer, why not mix it up? Trade in the familiar red stuff for some tomatillo-horseradish cocktail sauce, Bobby's addictively zesty take on the classic.

Laurence's Latkes

December 6, 2015 | Posted by Sally Jackson

It seems there are a million variations on the humble latke, from the outlandish to the old school. The one thing that everyone seems to agree on: you can’t celebrate Hanukkah without them (that and that their grandmother’s latkes were the best around…).

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.

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.

A Very Berry Milkshake

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?! When Bobby and I were testing milkshake recipes for Bobby’s Burger Palace many years ago, I learned some interesting things about fruit milkshakes, especially fresh berry milkshakes.
