The Culture Food Stir It Up!

  • Chicken chili verde

    Replacing tomatoes with tomatillos gives the traditional bowl of red chile a nice green hue and a fresh, lively flavor. 

  • Celebrating Lao new year with green papaya salad

    In Laos the new year is celebrated over three days in spring. A traditional Lao papaya salad, crunchy and bursting with complex flavors, is just the thing to welcome warmer weather. 

  • French carrot soup

    A handful of basic ingredients – carrots, potatoes, leeks, stock, fresh thyme and cream – proves once again that the French are masters of sublime simplicity, in this colorful, subtle soup.

  • Fudgy walnut brownie cookies

    Deep chocolate cookies with a fudgy brownie-like texture. As a tip, freeze them until firm before baking.

    Potato chips topped with peanut butter and chocolate make a unique homemade treat. But watch out, because these peanut butter wingdings fly!

    Spring is finally here, and picnic season is just around the corner! A slaw recipe with a mayo-free dressing is a must-have for outdoor gatherings.

    Buttery, creamy, slow-cooked polenta topped with mushrooms and crispy fried capers makes a delicious, unexpected side or a vegetarian comfort food lunch.

  • Potted ham
