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).

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

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few.

Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
