I Love This Crunchy Black Sesame Butter
It’s sweet, savory, creamy, and yes—crunchy—thanks to a secret ingredient.Started by Ashley Xie, a daughter of Chinese American restaurateurs, Rooted Fare is a new sauce company focused on sharing immigrant chefs’ condiment recipes with home cooks. Its black sesame butter was developed by L.A.-based chef and owner of Cup Noodles Shop, Wenling Peng, who based it on her mother’s recipe for tang yuan, or Chinese glutinous rice balls.
"I don't care about the cheese factor," she told People. "Every time I mention the horse and carriage Stuart laughs a little bit, and I'm like, 'Alright, whatever. It's my moment and I mean to have it.' "

Best Food Dehydrators for Dried Fruit, Jerky, and Preserving Anything Else You Want
Drying out food isn't just for people living off the grid.At their most basic, food dehydrators are plug-in appliances that blow warm air on perforated trays of sliced fresh foods. This drying process evaporates moisture and dries food slowly to preserve flavor and nutrients and extend its shelf life for about as long as you could possibly want. There’s hardly any processing needed. Sure, meat for jerky needs to be marinated so it’s tender and flavorful, but otherwise there’s no need to drench anything in sugar or salty brine, just the occasional dunk in lemon juice to inhibit oxidizing, or a quick dip in boiling water to remove peels.
The end result featured fall flavors like seasonal veggies and butternut squash ravioli. The main course had braised short ribs, and herb and potato crusted halibut on a bed of spaghetti squash.
Of course the wedding cake had to be over-the-top and was created by none other than "Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro.
"We had talked about a carrot cake, and Buddy was like, 'Eh, that's good, but what about a zucchini cake?'" Burrell told People. "So we're doing a zucchini cake for one flavor, and then the other flavor is olive oil, lemon and rosemary."
In lieu of a honeymoon, the newlyweds plan to head home to Brooklyn.
"The thought of having a wedding up here, then getting home, turning around and going somewhere else is just so overwhelming to me," said Burrell. "So I'm very happy to just have some home time, and enjoy newlywed bliss at home for a little while."
In “Taste Makers,” Meet the Immigrant Women Who Changed American Food .
When I first met Mayukh Sen on a windy day in New York City a couple years ago, our conversation flowed like we’d known each other for years. I didn’t understand why at the time. But having blitzed through his new book, Taste Makers: Seven Immigrant Women Who Revolutionized Food in America, at record speed (it’s as riveting as any novel, as page-turning as a thriller, and as moving as an inspirational book), I finally realize why. Sen has a knack for understanding the stories of those across from him in a way often overlooked by others.
