Features: CSA ASAP: Your guide to the right farm share
To some, the letters CSA are dreaded harbingers of mysterious vegetation in too-much or not-enough quantities. But with a little education, they can mean fresh quality produce and that healthy supporting-your-farmers glow. Buying into a community-supported agriculture program provides consumers with food straight from local fields and gives growers a reliable source of income that reduces the risk...
Features: Waste Not: The case for eating ugly carrots, beef neck and beetle-bitten crops
Getting a ticket to one of Michael and Tara Gallina’s Rooster and the Hen pop-up dinners is not easy. It’s not often that St. Louis welcomes home the former chef de cuisine and service captain, respectively, of one OF the world’s top 50 restaurants. Crowds have turned out to see what they will bring to the St. Louis food scene from their former home at Dan Barber’s Blue Hill at Stone Barns in New ...
Features: Meals that Changed my Life: Anthony Devoti
Many of us have vivid food memories, whether it’s a defining meal from childhood or a palate revelation from last week. Food contributes to who we are. For Five Bistro chef-owner anthony devoti, who recently launched J. Devoti Grocery, family meals and farm-raised ingredients left an indelible mark on his cooking. Here, the three meals that changed his life and shaped his career. 1. Childhoo...
Features: Ones to Watch 2015: Britt Simpson
Age: 28 Why Watch Her: She's whipping up a whole new world of pie and pudding en flambé. To understand Britt Simpson, you need to know a few numbers from the Disney songbook. You have to stand up and belt out “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast or “I Wanna Be Like You” from The Jungle Book or “Let It Go” from Frozen. Dance around. Use your arms. Work it, Cinderella. That’s what Simpson ...
Features: Blessed are the Cheesemakers: Paying homage to house-made fromage
Food trends are like popular kids in high school. Some are beautiful, but unsubstantial (ahem, foam). Follow them blindly, and you’re left feeling unsatisfied, with a dusty bag of goji berries in the pantry where your Fruit Roll-ups should be. Other trends are bandwagon-worthy specimens of culinary evolution. Here I’m thinking about cheese (as I often do). Nearby artisanal dairies like Baetje F...
Hit List: Hit List: July 2014
Death in the Afternoon 808 Chestnut St., St. Louis, 314.621.3236, deathintheafternoonstl.com The much-anticipated lunch spot in Citygarden from Blood & Sand’s Adam Frager and T.J. Vytlacil is open. But adjust your expectations, aficionados: Unlike its members-only sister restaurant-lounge, Death in the Afternoon is open to the public, doesn’t serve dinner and doesn’t have a cocktail menu. What...
Features: Cooking with Heart(s)
My friends seemed wholeheartedly enthused about a heart-themed dinner party – until I clarified what I meant. The conversation went something like this: Me: “I’m working on a story about cooking with heart.” Them: “Like cooking with passion? How sweet.” Me: “No, heart. Like literal hearts. Beef, chicken, lamb, artichokes … ” Them: “Oh.” And then a strained smile would creep across their fac...
Features: Kimchi - Spicy, Sour, Sharp, Spectacular: The newest surge in the DIY pickling trend is bringing Korea’s broad spectrum of flavors to Americans’ awakened palates
In the worlds of food and fashion, style is cyclical. It seems as though any trend, however strange and antiquated, eventually makes its way back into the spotlight. And kimchi, one of the most surprising restaurant trends du jour, has been waiting in the wings for centuries. Considering what kimchi is in its simplest form – vegetables that have been pickled and then left to ferment – its pop...
Features: Rising Stars: Meet two very different men who are determined to change the way we think about bread
Ted Wilson and Alex Carlson have never met. And while they’re the same age and share a hometown, an affinity for flour and an innate ability to strum a guitar string, they are two very different men. Wilson’s words are measured, questioned and finally decided upon, disappearing just as slowly as they were pronounced: shyly, softly and without eye contact. Carlson’s thoughts have far fewer pauses b...
Features: The Incredible Edible Duck Egg: Bigger and richer than their better-known cousins, duck eggs are all they’re cracked up to be
I’m looking at a duck egg in the barn, and all I can think is owww. A duck egg is 40-percent larger than a chicken egg. Laying one must feel like giving birth to a VW. I try to high-five my duck sisters. The ducks do not reciprocate. Ducks are divas. They only lay when it’s warm. Every other day. If they feel like it. Which means a limited laying season and an even more limited egg supply. Des...
Features: Late-Night Fix
A man once said that nothing good happens after midnight. Well, he never had Five Bistro’s poutine. Let’s be honest: There is no litmus test for late-night food. Its delectability is entirely subjective – and usually commensurate with the amount of booze consumed. But while the sensible among us are catching some shut-eye, local chefs are keeping the lights (and ovens) on to turn out dishes that a...
New Classics: Five Bistro's Fried Deviled Eggs
A devilishly delicious twist on everyone’s go-to potluck dish, Five Bistro’s deep-fried deviled egg re-imagines this age-old classic. The filling carries a creamy kick thanks to creme fraiche that’s been hit with whole grain mustard, freshly grated horseradish, Sriracha and a pinch of smoked paprika. Call it fine dining when it’s served perched atop a bed of microgreens with a spoon of tangy musta...
Features: A Roasting Odyssey: Perfecting the home cook's holy grail
"A chicken in his pot every Sunday,” was the wish of King Henry IV for his peasants in 17th century France. More than 300 years later, the Republican National Committee attached the same phrase to the presidential campaign of then-candidate Herbert Hoover, conveying that a vote for Hoover was a vote for prosperity. Back then, chicken was a sign of wealth, of booming times during which a family’s g...
Features: Butter's Revival: How the kitchen’s most versatile workhorse is making a comeback
For decades, producers marketed margarine as a healthy alternative to butter, tugging on our low-fat-loving heart strings with all the “animal fat is bad, vegetable oil is good” chutzpa they could muster. It worked. Margarine consumption tripled that of butter from the mid-1960s to the early 1990s, and many of us Gen-Xers endured soulless imitation butter throughout our formative years. Thankfully...
Features: In Praise of Braises: A primer on simmering vegetarian dishes
Key the word “braising” into Google, and recipes for pork shoulder and short ribs will run off the page. That’s culinary typecasting, though, like saying that baking is just for pastries or poaching belongs to eggs – braising can enhance vegetarian dishes just as much as meat-based ones. Braising is the transitional domain of late winter and early spring, when the days are short but the hours l...
Features: Recalling Forgotten Flavors: A lesser cut can still be a cut above
"Waste not, want not” still resonates with modern chefs – who are adding the long-forgotten flavor of lesser-known cuts to haute cuisine. Wes Johnson, chef de cuisine at Eclipse, takes this adage to heart by innovating with more obscure cuts on the hotel’s new late-night menu. From 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., diners can feast on dishes featuring beef cheek and bone marrow, among other offbeat treats. Mo...
New and Notable: Review: Five Bistro on The Hill
Joe Devoti is on a customer’s cell phone, calmly giving driving directions to the rest of the party that’s yet to show. His wife Bonnie stops by the women’s bathroom to tidy up things: “I hate a messy bathroom.” Nothing like having your parents around to keep order among chaos. Their son Anthony is in the kitchen – his spiffy new, renovated kitchen – doing what he does best: whipping out seasonal ...

Features: Local Alliances: Farmers and chefs on why relationships matter
The flavor of our food starts at the farm. Nobody realizes this more than chefs. Relationships between local producers and culinary pros spring up by way of chance meetings, word of mouth and good old-fashioned door knocking. Eliminating the middleman has proverbial benefits from a business perspective, though in the kitchens of the ambitious, shopping locally isn’t just about shopping. And it...
Features: Beer Dinners A-Brewin': Chefs and brewers tap into beer's sophisticated side
It's no wonder that in a town that boasts the country's largest brewer and numerous microbreweries, so many restaurants and pubs are hosting beer dinners, educational yet entertaining evenings of fine drinking and dining. Apart from affording beer mavens the chance to taste the subtleties of different lagers, porters, ales and stouts, beer dinners are an opportunity for brewmasters and chefs ...
Features: Chef's Selection: The best kitchens in town hunt for help

BLOG: Extra Sauce: Ligaya Figueras Predicts 2015 Trends
The time has come once again when we food fanatics weigh in on the edible landscape of the year ahead. But first, let’s take a quick look back to my 2014 predictions.

BLOG: In This Issue: Trendwatch - A look at what’s on the plate, in the glass and atop our wish list right now
{The High Rise at Mike Shannon's Steaks and Seafood and Mike Shannon's Grill}   Thank You for Smoking: Barbecue spots may be spreading like wildfire around these parts, but it’s the smoke in our glasses that really has us talking.

BLOG: Drink This Weekend Edition: Five Bistro’s fab burger is no secret, but how ‘bout those cocktails?
You go to Five Bistro for a standout burger. You go to Five Bistro to sup from a menu crafted from 90-percent local ingredients. But cocktails?

Mangan has tended bar at Carmine’s, Lucas Park Grille and Herbie’s. Her training at the latter – by season...
BLOG: The Scoop: O’Shays Pub to move into former Newstead Tower space
