Whether you take on this whole project or any of the recipe components, you’ll be transported
Our “What’s for Dinner” series is designed to equip you for the weeknight rush, but sometimes – especially this time of year — we aren’t in a rush. We might even have all day to cook — we might play hooky, get a snow day, or stay home with a sick kid, like I did on Friday.
I used the opportunity to start a version of traditional lasagne bolognese — no shortcuts. I slow cooked the namesake sauce, perfuming the house all day; then, on Saturday, I made the spinach pasta; yesterday morning I whisked the béchamel; and last night I put it all together and had some friends over.
We produce reported pieces, profiles, interviews, and rants about what’s broken in the food world (there’s a lot) and how to change things for the better. People sometimes tell me to just keep politics out of it. Respectfully: No. Food is political. We can’t and won’t ignore that.
