What We Love: French Food Gifts for Any Occasion

From buttery, flaky croissants with homemade jam to a pot of comforting soup with a crusty baguette, there is just something magical about French food gifts. And we love them all. In honor of our French week—have you seen our other posts on the Café Gourmande, Paris Markets, and Parisian Jam?—we wanted to take a

Breizh Cafe: Experience Brittany Crepes in Paris

by Amy Feiereisel
Experience Crepes at Breizh Cafe

No trip to Paris feels complete to me without a stop at Breizh Cafe, an authentic Bretagne-style creperie in the Marais. I made sure to point Amy toward it’s glowing windows and overflowing plates, and a little something sparkling, naturally. Here’s why it should be on your to-do list, too. ~Maggie Maggie’s first recommendation for

Author Maria Speck Talks Grains, Quick-Cooking Tips, and Her Favorite Food Gift (+ A Cookbook Giveaway)

Author Maria Speck Talks Grains, Quick-Cooking Tips, and Her Favorite Food Gift (+ A Cookbook Giveaway)

Maria Speck is a grain guru. I bestow upon her this title, not only because she is an award-winning author with two cookbooks on the subject, but also because she elevates the humble grain into the main attraction of any meal with very little effort. We here at Eat Boutique have been long-time fans of hers

My Friday Night Comfort Food: Vegan Fried Rice

by Maggie Battista
Vegan Fried Rice

Beginning in January, I started eating a whole lot more greens. There are greens in my morning smoothie (you know, mixed in with the fruit, seeds and cashew milk), greens in my lunch-time salad, and there are always greens somewhere in my dinner. I’m sorta enamored with them and relish all the good stuff they

Tea-Smoked Duck Breast and Pickled Rhubarb

by Sean St. John
Tea-Smoked Duck Breast and Pickled Rhubarb

Food gifts run the spectrum from sweet and sugary to savory and nutritious. Sean’s Tea-Smoked Duck Breast is savory and so thoughtful, nourishing in a way that candied gifts just can’t match. Don’t forget the Pickled Rhubarb — it’s just about rhubarb season in some parts and a pickle turns the sweetness into something very

What We Love: Spring Recipes

What We Love: Spring Recipes

Believe it or not, it’s officially spring! Okay, so maybe the flowers aren’t in full bloom; perhaps they’re buried under a few feet of white powder, but we are nearing the end of Winter 2015, and that is something to definitely be celebrated. Warmth is coming, along with the first salad greens of the season,

What We Love: Cooking With Beer

What We Love: Beer-Inspired Dishes for St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations

When I was growing up, St. Patrick’s Day typically meant two things: corned beef and pinches. The latter involved the tradition (at least where I grew up) of getting pinched if you weren’t wearing green on the holiday. My brother took full advantage of this and it became a game of who could outsmart the

Easy Oyster Stew

Oyster Stew

This is one of the last dairy- and meat-filled dishes I enjoyed before embarking on my plant-based food journey in January. It’s probably the one I miss the most. Let me tell you a bit about this plant-based food journey. I decided to start 2015 with a clean slate, the sort of slate that got

Eating Paleo, Deliciously: Diana Rodger’s New Cookbook, Spring Gratin Recipe, & A Giveaway

by Maggie Battista
Eating Paleo, Deliciously: Diana Rodger’s The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook

I’ve known Diana Rodgers for about 10 years now. She and her husband Andrew — I call him Farmer Andrew! — have operated every community-supported agriculture program I’ve ever belonged to. Through them, I learned to love all greens, especially Swiss chard and kale; I learned all about composting; I learned how social pigs are

Caramelized Shallot and Sun-Dried Tomato Polenta

by Denise Woodward
Caramelized Shallot and Sun-dried Tomato Polenta

With the snow piled up all around, I can’t imagine a better way to eat my feelings than with this big bowl of polenta. It’s just the sort of easy meal to make me forget that it’s still snowing. A nice glass of red will help too. -Maggie Over Christmas, my brother-in-law’s family gathered for

Bon Appetit: Mimi Thorisson on her Kitchen in France & her Aunt’s Fava Bean Soup

Warning: This article may inspire you to move to a farmhouse in France. Mimi Thorisson has that power. I started reading her blog, Manger, years ago and I’m still plotting my escape overseas. Mimi’s life on her stunning farmhouse in France, complete with adorable children and cuter-than-cute dogs, would be enough reason to make us jump ship, but then

Roasted Butternut and Sage Sauce Lasagne

Roasted Butternut and Sage Sauce Lasagne

Oh my gosh, if it gets any colder out there, I’m going to just… dig into this lasagne, the entire casserole dish, in front of a fire. And then I’ll make another to gift to you because squash and cheese are magic, definitely. Thank you, Mary, for gifting us with our new go-to lasagne recipe.

Celebrate Chinese New Year at Home: Classic Chinese Dumplings

by Amy Feiereisel
Celebrate Chinese New Year with Classic Chinese Dumplings

The earliest foods that I remember are nearly all Chinese. Though my father is American, my mother was born in Taiwan, and as she is the cook of the two, I had rice and butter instead of toast, stir fried cabbage instead of broccoli, and five spice pork instead of roast beef. The flavors that

In Maggie’s Kitchen: Seafood Fra Diavolo, Slow-Roasted Salmon, Cookbook News and It’s Almost Valentine’s Day

In Maggie’s Kitchen:

Hello friends, I just returned from a weekend away and, naturally, I have a few things to share because… it’s Monday! Spice It Up: I fell in love, again, with Maine and most certainly in love, again, with fra diavolo sauce. I don’t know why it’s evaded my cooking repertoire this long but, oh yes,

What We’re Loving: Spicy Dishes for Valentine’s Day

Oh, Valentine’s Day, how I have loathed and loved you. I hate being told what to do (especially when it comes to showing affection for those I care about), but I love chocolate, champagne, and all the wonderful food gifts the holiday produces. This year, however, I’m skipping the sweet treats and celebrating with the “hot stuff,”
