Best Dutch Lunch

Amsterdam

If you ever need to have an authentic Dutch lunch, I can't recommend enough visiting Rob Wigboldus Vishandel. I had a fried cod sandwich and it was so good I came back 2 days in a row. Can't recommend... Read more

How to Eat (and Cook) Greener for Earth Day, and Beyond Laura Siciliano-Rosen April 18, 2019

Child holding a Protect the Earth sign for Earth Day

This month, we dedicated our monthly newsletter and social media coverage to Earth Day, which falls on Monday, April 22, in the U.S. Every year we try to organize a street cleanup with our kids and their friends in our Queens neighborhood, which feels great and instructive and symbolic, but let's be honest: We kind of need to be doing that daily. We need to think of what we can do ALL THE TIME to really make an impact, and I'm limiting this here to easy individual actions that are not politically or policy-related (that is essential too, of course, but another matter).

Today I'm more concerned with how we can make more Earth-friendly choices when it comes to eating and cooking...

Jackfruit: It’s What’s for Dinner (Product Review) Laura Siciliano-Rosen May 20, 2016

Carnitas-style jackfruit over rice, from Upton's Naturals.

In this new occasional series, we’ll review international food products on the market that our readers may be interested in. Disclosure: Upton’s Naturals sent us samples of this product free of charge. All opinions are honest and our own (also: unpaid).

If you’ve seen jackfruit before, you’re unlikely to forget it: It’s going to be the largest fruit in any spread. I see it all the time here in Queens, where we have a sizable Asian population, a hulking greenish-yellow fruit with spiky reptilian skin. But despite vague memories of tasting—and loving—sweet, ripe jackfruit in Vietnam once upon a time, and even stronger memories of an excellent cardamom-scented jackfruit appetizer at...

In the Bahamas, to Conch or Not to Conch? Laura Siciliano-Rosen March 10, 2016

It’s a famously overexploited, not quite endangered, species. But when conch is on every menu in town, there’s got to be a ton of ’em, right? A look at that beloved Caribbean mollusk, the queen conch—and how to help protect it.

“Are you feeling conchy tonight?” the waitress inquired with a smile when we wondered aloud about the Bimini conch linguine—a $22 Bahamian take on the traditional Italian clam dish, apparently. We were at a sports bar outside Nassau with friends and our collective flock of young kids, and we’d already had conch fritters and a conch patty earlier that day. The general consensus: Aren’t we always feeling conchy down...

Farmers Market, Extended Scott Rosen November 20, 2010

 Hot green and red peppers from the farmers market.

It was such a relief last week to find out the local Queens farmers market has been changed to year round. With only a week left to Thanksgiving, we usually are stocking up on the turkey meat and sausage that we will freeze and use throughout the winter. We have previously made good use of that system, but not getting seasonal vegetables has been the hard part. “Do we really have to go to Trade Fair [our overcrowded supermarket] for produce?” This is a common question we repeat throughout the cold months. “I miss the farmers market,” with a sad face, is another generic overused statement during the dark days of January and February.

We have become so accustomed to our Sunday walk...
