American pie is a sweet tradition -- apple, pumpkin, chocolate. But in Britain, pie is baked up savory -- pork, duck, chicken, pigeon, sausage, pork.
And how. Meat pie is packed right to the ridges -- no slick sauce or crisp carrot distraction. Heated, plunked on a pool of mashed potatoes and doused with mushy peas -- that's a meal that means ...Read more

I ruined all my future potential for joy that first time I tasted Roquefort with Canadian ice wine.
I was on a trip with a then-partner in his home region of Niagara-on-the-Lake, a wine-growing area just outside of Toronto, enjoying some time among the vines. I was a novice, with zero knowledge of wine fundamentals, so the tasting room ...Read more
Turns out airline food doesn't have to come in a snack-sized bag and doesn't have to stay on the plane.
Now folks can recreate some business-class meals with the new United "Polaris" cookbook, The Daily Meal reports.
But this isn't the peanuts and pretzels served in coach -- United Airlines shared an image of the cookbook featuring a recipe ...Read more
Miller Lite is officially allowed to say it has "more taste" than Bud Light.
But it shouldn't.
Yes, Miller Lite is the superior mass-marketed light beer. But it's not because it has more taste. It's because it has less taste.
Let me explain.
The question of "more taste" in light beer -- already an oxymoron of sorts -- garnered attention with...Read more
It's that time of year, when the tea leaves, crystal balls, Tarot cards and other psychic tools come out, and the predictions are made.
They are to be consumed with a giant flake of Maldon sea salt. Still, while wishful thinking seems to be the foundation for many prognostications from the food-and-drink universe, some are rooted in observation...Read more
The holiday season has passed us once again. The inevitable credit card bills are on their way. That doesn't mean we have to stop drinking good wine. If you can find a few bucks' worth of loose change underneath your car seat, I can recommend a killer bottle of Spanish tempranillo.
At $7.99, the 2016 Protocolo red is my choice for Value Wine of...Read more
Sometimes, you just don't want to bother with pots and pans.
Sometimes, you want small portions, like tapas. Sometimes, you just want a change.
It is for all of these times that muffin tins were made. Sure, you can use them to make muffins or cupcakes or, best of all, Yorkshire pudding. But an actual trend these days is to use them to make ...Read more
The world of potato chips is where all of the flavor innovation is these days. Culinaria -- and therefore Schnucks -- has a wonderful entry into the field. Sweet Chili & Sour Cream Kettle Cooked Chips are not too spicy, not too sweet and deliciously crunchy. They are absolutely addictive.

No. No. A thousand times, no.
I am speaking, of course, about a food trend for 2019 that has been predicted by more than one culinary prognosticator. I am speaking, of course, about kelp.
"Kelp, kelp and more kelp," said Marc Murphy, a New York-based chef, cookbook author and judge on the cooking-competition show "Chopped."
"It's a ...Read more
Most people know that fiber is important, but do they really know what it is and why? Fiber is the non-digestible carbohydrate portion of food. The digestive system breaks down other carbohydrates, protein and fat for energy and growth, but it is unable to digest fiber...Read more
Now that it's the new year, I know I am ready for a time-out in the potato, bread, pasta and desserts categories. I love to create luscious holiday fare, and I throw caution to the wind when it comes to butter, oil, cream of any sort, sugar and anything that resembles cookies or cakes. I relish the challenge of recreating dishes I adore and make...Read more

I tried to make Singapore noodles one night, only to realize, I had no rice noodles in the house. And, yes, I could have ventured out to get some; but I at times can be lazy. So out went the noodles, and in came rice! The substitution worked perfectly.
Stir-frying is easy, if you head to ...Read more
I have told you that brunch is my favorite meal of the day, and winter is perhaps the high point for brunch. But while I am looking forward to these sleepy morning meals, I have to admit that many brunch recipes are too sweet for me. If a sweet monkey bread with a gooey glaze showed up, it ...Read more

This skillet version has all those classic components, but takes less than an hour to make and ...Read more
Granola came into vogue during the health-food movement of the '60s, quietly retreated, and in the past few years has become popular again.
Today you will find upscale bakeries and restaurants that sell personalized versions of granola, each with their own mix of nuts, fruits and grains. They are often pricey and, frankly, not as good as making...Read more
