  • NYC deli shop aims for authentic Jewish fare
    Chef and owner of the Mile End Delicatessen in Brooklyn and Mile End Sandwich shop in Manhattan, Noah Bernamoff hopes his shops and his new cookbook focusing on Jewish deli staples will inspire people to make authentic deli foods at home. "Ingredients are 50% of the battle in making delicious food. Smoking meats, pickling vegetables, they are accessible but you might not get it right the first time," he said. "These are techniques and methods people rarely employ in their kitchen on a daily basis. My tip is just be patient." Reuters (11/20) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Chef Marcus Samuelsson on eating healthy during the holidays
    Chef Marcus Samuelsson leads a busy life operating two restaurants, but he still makes an effort to consume nutritious foods -- even during the holidays. "Just don’t overdo it, on Thanksgiving or any other day of the year. Just because Thanksgiving comes one day a year, it doesn’t mean you have to add an extra stick of butter to your sweet potatoes when you would ordinarily just use a pat," he said. "Just think about using lots of spices and intense flavors to differentiate your meal and make it special." NBC News/theGrio (11/19) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
