Mushroom Pasta Worth Remembering

Casey Barberby Casey Barber January 26, 2015

“I’ve actually been making a version of this dish since our honeymoon in 2005, when I ate the most sublime bowl of mushroom pasta at Bistro Jeanty in Yountville. Since that day, I’ve been working to recreate that most perfect dish—this is just the first time I’ve stopped to commit quantities and procedures to paper (er, pixel).”

“Don’t worry, I’m well aware of my crazy cat lady status, but I’m not actually crazy enough to bake an actual dessert for the occasion. This is more of a cake in the crab cake sense of the word: a combination of roasted chicken, tuna, and sweet potato that frankly only a cat could love, frosted with a few rosettes of buttermilk mashed potatoes.”

The Bar Cart: Christmas Island

Casey Barberby Casey Barber December 8, 2014

“The Christmas Island is the cocktail equivalent of stringing twinkle lights on a palm tree, a classic piña colada that got itself all spiced up for the holidays. Coconut milk keeps the color of the drink pale and wintry, and crushed ice is key for a snowball effect.”
