Fire Up the Grill! Fairway’s Housemade Sausages and Kebabs

Memorial Day is around the corner–the kickoff of all things summertime: long days, flip-flops, and…barbeque season!  Soak skirt, hanger, or flatiron steak in soy sauce, lime juice, garlic, ginger and brown sugar; sear on the grill, and you’re a culinary hero/heroine. Marinate lamb chops in yogurt, parsley, lemon and mint and grill until obscenely juicy. […]

Harissa Appetizer

Why We Love: Shim’on Harissa Sauce

The folks in Tunisia, Morocco, and Algeria are condiment geniuses. We have ketchup; they have harissa. A potent, kicky concoction of piri piri (a variety of chili pepper), serranos, garlic, and spice, this stuff is incredible and incredibly addictive. Shim’on harissa is imported from France, not the Middle East, and they too take harissa seriously. […]

Mangia! Feast of the Seven Fishes

I’m undeniably a seafood fanatic, and I have my family to thank. Every holiday dinner, every celebratory occasion, and many weekend dinners are made special with baked clams as appetizers, pasta with cockles (called “vongole,” in Italian), or some preparation of shrimp, either fried, grilled, or in a scampi sauce. For me, the perfect meal […]
