Chili Cornmeal Tart

Chili Cornmeal Tart

This hearty dish has been a staple in my cooking for over a year, so I was surprised when a friend asked me for the recipe and I wanted to direct her here, only to realize I hadn’t done a post about it. Like so many of my favorite dishes, this is just a slight […]

The Best Ever Key Lime Pie

The Best Ever Key Lime Pie

I’m not usually one to brag about my cooking—and I’m definitely not one to brag about my baking. I am not a pastry chef. But since guests at my restaurant (including Floridians) tell me that my Key Lime pie is the best they’ve ever had—I feel like it’s safe to brag about it. This recipe […]

Jägerschnitzel

Jägerschnitzel

Our heartfelt thanks to Hans Röckenwagner for sharing another recipe with Hometown Pasadena readers. This recipe for jägerschnitzel comes, once again, from the recently released Das Cookbook. ~~~ Jägerschnitzel, or “hunter’s schnitzel,” has always been one of my favorites.

Avocado Fries

Avocado Fries

We would like to thank Hans Röckenwagner for sharing his ever-popular avocado fries recipe, as may be seen in his latest cookbook Das Cookbook.

Coq au Vin with Whole Grain Mustard & Onions

Coq au Vin with Whole Grain Mustard & Onions

This is my favorite chicken dish right now and one I’ve been perfecting it for a while. It can be warm and wintery but it’s not so stew-like that it won’t work for a summer night alongside a green salad. I really enjoy the way this meal tastes with quinoa, especially because it’s a little […]

Tomato & Herb Baked Eggs

Tomato & Herb Baked Eggs

I’ve been doing a lot of recipe testing for the opening of my restaurant Mamasa in a month. (Costa Rica here I come!) I love the ease, healthiness and lightness of this dish. It’s a great make-ahead brunch item and it tastes delicious! Fridge: 6 eggs 1¼ cups red pepper, diced (1 large pepper) 1 […]
