In the middle of this nasty New York winter storm, I’m reading like Hermione Granger and missing the warmth of the South more than ever. I’m particularly pining for my trip to New Orleans with Put a Egg On It, which taught me more about cocktail making and my own passion for food than any old stack of books. Read up on how people party in the Crescent City.

Recipe: Turnt-Ups

Without further ado, my weekly post for Put A Egg On It. I’ve been having a blast with them, attending a Little Magazine Coalition meeting on a rainy Tuesday. I learned all kind of details about stockists, printers, distributors, and Vanessa’s Dumplings. I also had the honor of getting to meet some kicking indie ‘zines such as Makeshift and Sweets & Bitters, as well as hear about the exciting development of HRDCVR, the product of super talented Danyel Smith.

Can’t wait for future collaborations. For this week, I braised some turnips in brandy and topped them off with tarragon and shallot. It’s a bold dish that’d be perfect for a fatty grilled steak.

GET TURNT.

And on the topic of the recipe name, I found this Vox article very helpful on understanding “turnt.”

Recipe: “Zapata’s Grove”

 Zapata's Grove

Here is my weekly post for Put A Egg On It. Here, I made a long-sipping cocktail with chipotle and tequila that I smoked(!). There’s a lot of DIY ingredients in this drink, such as a chipotle-honey syrup and a homemade batch of grapefruit bitters. I shot some video of the cocktail mixing and how to use the Polyscience smoking gun, which may be the coolest gadget I’ve used in a while.
