Valentine’s Day Heart-Beet Chocolate Mousse

February 11, 2021

What makes a food appropriate for Valentine’s day (also known in Latin America as the day of love and friendship)? It makes sense to me that foods known as aphrodisiacs or which promote the production of oxytocin, our bonding hormone, would be a good start.

Festive Fruitcake with Carrots, Parsnips and Apple Cider Vinegar

December 17, 2020

A deliciously spiced tender and tasty fruitcake Like classic fruitcake, this recipe calls for nuts and dried cherries, but incorporating vegetables gives this cake a moist texture halfway to carrot cake. It has ginger, vanilla, almond and cinnamon for flavor and a festive aroma. The layers of orange (from both juice and zest) and tart fresh cranberry give the cake some bright acidity, as does the apple cider vinegar drink. Historically, adding vinegar to cakes was a useful trick that…
