Goat Cheese Burger with Fig Jam & Arugula

When it comes to sexy food, figs are often ranked near the top, along with finer cheeses, like a nice goat cheese. I’ve brought both together on this burger. And when choosing the greens for this, I went for the intricate, peppery arugula. This burger is unexpected and complex, beautiful to behold, as I find is also true of the very best love stories.

Tequila Lime Chicken Wings

Tequila Lime Chicken Wings

When contemplating what might make perfect football food for this year’s Super Bowl, it occurred to me that chicken wings with a tequila lime glaze might be ideal.

It’s wing time.

Coconut Panna Cotta with Grapefruit Gelée

Coconut Panna Cotta with Grapefruit Gelée

I have always felt that citrus season comes at exactly the right time for Alaska. The blood oranges, tangelos, and grapefruit show up in plentiful number at the market and bring their sunshine with them, bottled up inside. Each year I anticipate that surprising juxtaposition when the dead of winter is bombarded by the juicy flavors of warmer places and that undeniable, sweet acidity. I spotted a recipe for pristine white coconut panna cotta topped with a glimmering grapefruit gelee and knew I had to try it, as it reminded me so distinctly of the wintry Alaska landscape brightened by the warmth of citrus season.
