I planted a raised bed full of herbs in my backyard last year in hopes of gaining a better understanding of where my food comes from, as well as to enjoy the
fruits herbs of my labor. Despite next to no prior experience in the garden, for the next few months I was a woman obsessed, tending to my garden with care day in and day out.
Cut to three months later, when I sheepishly pulled into the garage under the cover of darkness with a seemingly lifeless twig of a fig tree in the car trunk. Inexperienced, and without a proper home for a tree with a decades long life-span, I set it up next to its fragrant friends and watered away, hoping for a sign of life. Slowly, but surely, leaves sprouted forth, and I marveled at each subsequent, shoot, bud and leaf; from my enthusiasm (and over-sharing with anyone who'd listen) you'd think I birthed the tree myself.

While it's convenient to purchase salad dressing at every grocery store in America, why not make your own? It's easy to put together a quick vinaigrette that's healthier than a store-bought counterpart because you control the ingredients that go into the dressing. This everyday vinaigrette is a simple mixture of mustard, garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil. Watch the video now to learn how it's made, then print out the recipe and experiment with it at home.
However, chefs are breaking away from the traditional pairings and serving bone marrow with unique, unusual accompaniments. Recently at Saxon + Parole in NYC, the bone marrow was glazed in miso and served with an olive marmalade, lightening the dish with its briny and citrusy flavors. Wolfgang Puck's Cut restaurant in Las Vegas serves a bone marrow flan with mushroom marmalade and a parsley salad. In San Francisco, Marlowe restaurant serves bone marrow with salsa verde to give it a zesty freshness.
Some still serve bone marrow in two-inch medallion pieces with a small spoon to scoop the inside, but lately, I'm seeing bone marrow cut lengthwise and roasted open face. I prefer this preparation, which allows the bone marrow to develop a caramelized, slightly crunchy crust. What is the strangest way you've eaten bone marrow lately?
