Spiced Lamb Burgers from Anissa Helou in Bon Appetit

Spiced Lamb Burgers from Anissa Helou in Bon Appetit

“ This is one of my favorite Bon Appetit recipes of all-time. I make it every summer — the lamb fat seeps into the pita (in a GOOD way) so it gets extra tasty. Also, so easy. Love love love. Careypolis Brooklyn 10/31/17”. Thank you […]

Bobby Flay’s Salmon Burgers with Hoisin Barbecue Sauce

I like Bobby Flay.  For quite a few years, I worked above his ‘store’. That would be his late lamented Mesa Grill. At Mesa, his take on Southwestern cuisine virtually introduced New York to the flavors of that part of the country.  Of course, along […]

A visit to April Bloomfield’s “The Breslin” and a recipe for Lamb Burgers with Yogurt Sauce and Tomatoes

        At The Breslin, April Bloomfield’s much-written-about “British Gastropub” at 16 West 29th Street,(TEL: (212) 679-1939), I  became totally enamored of the Lamb Burger.  It’s almost as outrageously tasty as the “Thrice Cooked Chips” that are as good, if not better, than any French fry […]
