I'm on pins and needles anticipating my November 11 interview of Dorie Greenspan at the JCC San Diego - Lawrence Family JCC. In the meantime, here's my story on Dorie's new cookbook (her 13th), Everyday Dorie, for The San Diego Union-Tribune. It's filled with all sorts of great savory and sweet recipes you'll want to make.
In my story, I've featured three dishes that I made and enjoyed: her Ricotta Spoonable, which features lots of herbs and can be a dip or pasta topping; her Roasted Acorn Squash Wedges, which feature pomegranate molasses; and Sweet Chili Chicken Thighs, made a bit spicy with Thai sweet chili sauce and sriracha. Oh, these are good!
All these recipes are in my latest story for the San Diego Union-Tribune's food section.
If you love Dorie, you have two opportunities to see her in person in San Diego on November 11:
The Chino Farm in Rancho Santa Fe: Good Earth/Great Chefs series book signing event from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The event occurs rain or shine and is free to the public. Books to be signed must be purchased at the event.
