"🍋::::: Because I suffer from recipe-writing amnesia in which I often have no memory of what recipe is in my book or how toothsome it is, here's a new one for you AND me from my new book. Our @tartinemanufactory pastry kitchen had one of these Lemon Poppyseed cakelets out to try and when I complemented Megan on it she said LIZ IT'S YOUR RECIPE . . Lemon Poppyseed Cake Beat to a ribbon 4 large eggs, 130g sugar, 1/2 tsp salt. Set aside. Mix 1 Tbs coconut flour + 1/4 C water. Add to: 110g very soft butter, 2 Tbs olive oil.

"It's been awhile since posting a recipe; selling house, living in tiny temporary apartment, and not cooking as much. But the contents of my fridge got thrown together into this one pan dish and I can barely tap out this recipe before tearing it apart. The skin side is down, in case you're wondering, bc I burnt it, but it'll be a tasty char 6 chicken thighs marinated in: 1/4 cup soy sauce 2 Tbs honey 4 cloves garlic, sliced 3 Tbs benne seed or sesame seed oil 1 tsp five spice powder 1 Tbs chili flakes 1 Tbs fresh ginger, grated 10 grinds black pepper 5 carrots, sliced 1 onion, sliced 1 tangerine, zested and sliced Marinate 30 minutes Roast 450°f 25-35 minutes, adjusting to top and bottom of oven, turning chicken #sortofasian #tinykitchencooking"

Chef Thomas McNaughton reviews Pastrami sandwich at Tartine Bakery
$$ | Breakfast/Brunch | Bakery
"The size of the hot-pressed sandwiches here make for almost two full meals. Not to mention that it has enough mustard on it to clear afflicted nasals from any common cold."
Chef Ryan Farr reviews Olive loaf at Tartine Bakery
$$ | Breakfast/Brunch | Bakery
"Straight from the oven, this amazing loaf has a beautiful crunchy crust that is perfectly thin and shatters so delicately to expose the moist, almost custard-like interior, with an aroma blast of lemon, Herbes de Provence, and olive. I can never resist, so I always buy two, because only one will make it home."
