Maggie’s Kitchen Memo: Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday Sale, and Aged Eggnog

Hello friends, It’s a new food week and there’s only 10 days until Thanksgiving. Every year, I aim to fuss less and less over the big day. It’s my favorite holiday, no doubt, because the only sort of gifts to concern myself with are the food variety. As well, I feel the greatest joy now

Pickled Fennel

With six bulbs of fennel hiding out in my fridge and a small village set to descend for Thanksgiving, I made this condiment for my big share boards that hang out all day. A share board is essentially a platter filled with all sorts of delicious bites that guests can share as an appetizer or

Favorite Cocktails and the Holiday Drinks Collection

Our Holiday Drinks Collection inevitably sell out each year – can you possibly imagine why?! I suspect it’s because we all have excellent taste, and know that an excellent cocktail is the secret to a great party. Lucky for us, our latest and greatest Holiday Drinks Collection just launched in time to kick off the season’s

I haven’t yet guzzled my requisite pumpkin spice latte of the season. If you’ve guzzled at least one, more power to you. If you’ve made a homemade pumpkin spice latte, well, bless you. I’m way behind and I should probably turn in my Fall-lover badge right about now. This recipe, however, is my way of

Maggie’s Memo: Fall Cookbooks and Sunday Lunch

Happy (fall) Monday, I know everyone’s back to work today but I’d love to provide a little distraction by talking food and drink. And since my amazing team — Amy and Kate — expressly asked me to share more frequently — how I can refuse?! — here’s what’s going on in my world: Sunday lunch: I had lunch on Sunday.

Holiday Food Gifts: Join my Client ist

I’m up late watching the movie Chef and it reminds me of that pure joy you feel when you get to do something that both touches people and makes you exceedingly happy. It’s a feeling you sort of wear everywhere you go. I’ve been wrapping food gifts steadily since Labor Day, and though Halloween is

Hello Monday

Hello Monday

Hello Monday, I’m starting a new week feeling a little disconnected. Does that happen to you sometimes? It happens to me when I don’t spend enough time in the kitchen, my place to rest up and regroup and, if I’m being honest, to feel whole again. I’m gonna fix this asap because when you work

Hello, hello! October is the best and worst. It’s a month full of so much amazing food – pumpkin, peppers, squash – but also, gosh, its laid me up with a bad cold. While I’m cuddled up with three blankets and a cup of chai tea, I wanted to share some of the best bits

A Food Gift Love Dinner with Brooklyn Brewery and Maggie Battista

I’m thrilled because… guess what… I’ve turned in my manuscript for my cookbook, Food Gift Love. I’m elated and feel a lightness that is incomparable to anything except, perhaps, that end-of-the-semester moment in college when you finish all your exams, only better. It’s like my nights and weekends and very early mornings and that time

Let’s be quick about this because you have way better things to do than sit inside pickling over a steaming stove all summer. On Saturday, my darling Italian neighbor gave me peppers, cucumbers and parsley from her garden. My garden is suffering, big time, so I got a little glassy-eyed when she handed me her

Love Your Kitchen and Happy Birthday, Eat Boutique

I also started Eat Boutique — but let’s talk about that in a few paragraphs. I’d rather, first, tell you about learning to love my kitchen. When we moved into this 100-year-old farm house set on an old apple orchard, the kitchen was the heart of the home, quite literally. It was in the very
