BBQ: Thai'ed Up on Memorial Day

Long ago—like seven years ago—I published my first cookbook, Asian Vegetables with Chronicle Books. (I know, a hot topic. Let's just say it's a good book, but no best seller.) Oddly, based on this book—which has all of two grilling recipes—I was invited to participate in a big grill-fest in Seattle, along with some serious barbecue guys. I was the only woman.

Square One: Vodka and Now, Cucumber

Ah, cucumber season—it’s almost upon us! (You’ll never hear anyone speak reverently of cucumbers like this by the way, and it’s probably due to the cucumber’s representation in most big supermarkets: huge, bitter, waxy, seedy imposters. I think I'm bitter myself about them, come to think of it.) But soon, the markets will soon be flowing with the real deal. My favorites happen to be the slender, vaguely prickly, Japanese variety that I pick up at the Alemany market.
