Memorable Meals

One of the biggest obstacles in preparing comfort foods is the persistence of memories. Food whose essence fills a room with tantalizing smells enveloping our olfactory senses and transporting us back to Grandma’s kitchen. Try Persnickety’s recipes for Chile Verde (video) and Chicken and Dumplings.


Octobeer Fest

The love for Beer and Bratwurst immigrated to America with German immigrants and has become part of the national fabric. American cuisine owes a debt to Germany for introducing hot dogs, hamburgers and beer to us. Re-visit traditional favorites like Jaeger Schnitzel with braised green cabbage and spaetzle, and a Persnickety tribute to the marriage of food and beer – Cheese Soup.
