Fig-Bourbon Fizz - Celebratory Sip for #SundaySupper's #IsabelsBirthdayBash


Today the Sunday Supper Movement crew is hosting a virtual party for our beloved founder Isabel...and it's been a surprise. But today is the day that we share our creations in her honor. I've been so excited to lift this glass to celebrate her birthday. Cheers, Isabel!

Ingredients makes 1 cocktail

  • 2 fresh whole, ripe figs (I used 1 brown mission and 1 green)
  • 2 brown sugar cubes
  • 1/2 t raw organic honey
  • 2-1/2 oz bourbon (I used Knob Creek)
  • ice cubes
  • 1/2 C sparkling water, chilled
  • thin slices of fig for garnish

Procedure
Combine figs and sugar in a chilled pint glass. Muddle together for approximately 1 minute. Add in the honey and the bourbon - that "a jigger and a pony's worth" if that means anything to you! 

Fill an old-fashioned glass with ice. Strain the fig mixture over the ice and top with sparkling water. 

Stir to fully combine and garnish with fresh fig slices. Serve immediately. Happy birthday, Isabel! Wish I were with you, in person, to lift a glass.


It was a tasty drink. I think I'll have to make these for my birthday.

Join me in celebrating Isabel's Birthday with all the delicious food and drinks her #SundaySupper family prepared!

  4. Oooooooh I have an unopened bottle of Knob Creek bourbon right now and this is just what I should make with it! Love the addition of figs. I'd never have thought to use them in a cocktail! (I just realized I said exactly what DB said, lol).

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
