Crusty Artisan Loaves from Chez Bullhog

For at least as long as the Salad Queen and I have been married, we’ve been working to create the perfect bread to grace our family table. Over the years, those loaves have morphed from long-fermented ones that always seem to flatten out on the bottom to high-rising smoky loaves from the woodfired oven that [...]

Steep and Deep Lasagna

When it comes to lasagna, size matters. Just as with great ski terrain, steep and deep is good. You want your teeth to bite into a mouthful of flavor, cascade off the noodles and sink your taste buds into pockets of cheese that go forever. Ah, now that’s the good stuff.

So when Jonathan from Norway [...]

Challah Rolls

In the wee hours of a recent night the greater part of a Challah loaf went missing. I might have suspected Santa or his hungry elves if it weren’t for the trail of crumbs that led to a few bites of sandwich left scattered in the kitchen sink. Turkey and swiss: sure signs that my son the [...]

Amish Country White Bread

I remember my father driving, more than a little recklessly, down a country road. Fields of brown cornstalks shot past us, low green hedges, bright red barns that whizzed by in a blur. We four kids sat wide-eyed with the windows open, letting the country wind whip our hair, as my father gripped the wheel [...]

Finest Fuji Apple Pie

At the gorge in George, the road heads north through miles of dry landscape: dark rock trimmed with sagebrush and sparse grasses. West of Quincy, however, is a completely different story. Here the land is sunglinted green in a wide swath that follows the glistening Columbia as far as the eye can see. Closer in [...]

Woodchopper Rosemary Bread

My friend Rick looked at me funny when I announced that my bread needed some attention. We were after all waist deep in alpine fir branches on the slope below the cabin, cutting 50-pound rounds from trees we’d felled the day before. I was cutting. He was doing the heavy lifting. The sharp smell of [...]

Fire Roasted Tomatoes

I’d love to tell you that the tomatoes here at Chez Bullhog were wonderful this year, but it just ain’t so. For a true tomato connoisseur, this is one tough admission.

Homegrown tomatoes here at Chez Bullhog

Oh, we put the plants in the sunniest spot in the garden and by turns coddled and abused them at [...]

No Noodle Lasagna with Garden Fresh Tomatoes

It’s tomato time here in Seattle. Despite a late start and some serious coddling through a cold northwest June, our plants burgeoned into maturity in July and – after a long stretch of glorious weather through August – began yielding luscious red beauties a few weeks ago.

Finally.

At Chez Bullhog, when our tomatoes are ripe we [...]

Fresh Tomato Margherita Pizza

Intense rivalry charged the warm air that lingered around the Piazza del Campo in Siena that night. Hoards of young Italians swarmed the square with flags held high, ranting, gesticulating, and then moving off to blend into side streets.  Some were in street clothes and some medieval costume. As groups came through in waves, each behind [...]

Wild Mushroom Linguine with Chanterelles and Arugula

I left the trail to scrabble through waist high ferns, pushing aside pesky branches as I climbed. A hundred feet up the tangle gave way to a sparse grove studded here and there with massive stumps from old growth trees long gone. These giants of the landscape – each one the size of a small house – [...]
