Recipe: Salmon RillettesRecipes
If you don’t know what salmon rillettes are, you’re missing out. Creamy but light, flavorful without being overpowering, think of it as salmon’s answer to paté. It’s a spread that’s sure to impress, and it’s deceptively simple to make. This version comes from Talbott & Arding, an upscale larder in Hudson, New York.

Portable Recipe: Cold Noodle Salad with Creamy Peanut SauceRecipes
A forceful kick from behind you sends the chair launching forward. Another blow immediately follows, and somewhere a child starts to scream. You feel the anger swelling inside of you as you start to plot your revenge. The hunger is taking control… This may sound like the beginning of a horror movie, but in reality it’s just another day on a plane. Travel can do a number on anyone’s diet: airports are littered with fast food, pubs, and ice cream stores.

Inspiration from a French Inn: Cocktail MaisonRecipes
Can you guess what gives this Champagne cocktail its peachy-pink blush? After I sampled a glass of it, I just had to find out. My friend Hillary discovered this sparkling cocktail years ago while traveling through the French countryside. She was staying in small inn with an adjoining restaurant. An assortment of cocktails were offered before dinner as apéritifs. Hillary chose the house specialty, the cocktail maison. It was cool and effervescent.

Word of Mouth: ChapatiSkills
Chapati [chuh-pah-tee] noun: Pan-grilled unleavened flatbread eaten in India, East Africa, and most of South Asia.Chapati is ubiquitous in Kenya; big golden wedges of this flat, chewy bread were served at almost every meal. We loved it; the fried golden taste is so delicious, and it’s handy for sopping up extra meat and sauce. We were already familiar, too, with chapati from Indian cuisine.

The Best Places to Eat Far-Flung Foods Without Getting on a Plane for 16 HoursPeople
Americans have a vacation problem and here’s what it is: We can’t get to Xi’an to eat hand-slapped biang biang noodles for a week and eat cochinita pibil pulled from the ground on the Yucatan peninsula and enjoy an Argentine parillada feast with endless enormous steaks. Two weeks a year just isn’t enough time. Two weeks, if we can get it, is barely enough to visit one of these food paradises, not to mention all them.

Recipe: Catskills Apple DumplingsRecipes
What are apple dumplings? Think of them as bite-sized versions of apple pie (only better), with all the goodness of a flaky crust and gooey apple filling. Many are made with whole apples, but the ones I’m hooked on are made with diced apples, which make them super easy to eat. I love picking some up from a local farm stand as a treat for my family and, no matter what, I always eat one straight away. They’re that good!

The Unexpected Place to Celebrate St. Patrick’s DaySkills
It’s true that New York’s St. Patrick’s Day parade is the largest in the world, that there’s no shortage of Irish bars to visit in Boston, and that it may be worth a trip to Chicago to see the river run green. But one of the best places to lift your pint glass in honor of the patron saint of Ireland probably isn’t on your radar. On any given holiday (or really any given day), it’s a safe bet there are good times, or bon temps rather, to be had in New Orleans.

What I Bring Home When I Travel to GermanyKitchen
You might think a suitcase coming from Germany would be filled to the brim with porky products and pilsner, and perhaps some horseradish-laced mustard and a Bavarian pretzel or two. Not so for me. When I come back from Deutschland, my bag is filled with sweet treats. I grew up traveling to Germany. My mother was born there, in a tiny village in the Rhineland near the French border. My dad, who is American, joined the army and was posted in her small town.

5 Rules of Airplane Snacks, According to a Flight AttendantSkills
It’s true that you can actually get a good meal, maybe even a great one, with wine pairings to boot, on an airplane — that is, if you’re flying first class.

Airlines have whittled down their complimentary onboard options to a selection of itty-bitty packets of peanuts and pretzels — and that’s if you’re lucky.

A Nutritionist’s Take on Healthy Gas-Station SnacksPeople
So, you’re on the road to somewhere wonderful and you can’t tell if it’s the excitement about reaching your final destination that’s making you dizzy or, wait … nope, it’s actually hunger. In your rush to get out the door and be on your way to the lake, beach, country, mountains — wherever it is, not here — you forgot to pack snacks. Unfortunately, you’re short on options, so the gas station it is.

This Is How They Do Aperol Spritz in CopenhagenPeople
My obsession with the Aperol Spritz began a few years ago when the bubbly, slightly bitter aperitif that’s served basically everywhere in Italy started popping up at bars and restaurants stateside. Then, two winters ago, I developed an even closer bond with the refreshing, low-alcohol sipper on a cruise to Antarctica. Most evenings, I would make my way to the observation deck, order a spritz and a small bowl of potato chips, and watch the glaciers float by.

Snacking Tips from Road Warriors: EntrepreneurSkills
Snacks are an essential part of travel. They keep hunger — and impulsive, hanger-driven decisions — at bay, sustaining long days on the road (or on your feet). They also offer a tiny piece of home, whether it’s the familiarity of a pack of peanut M&Ms when you’re in a foreign country or the knowledge that you’ve got your go-to granola handy for breakfast.

For many, travel brings to mind far-flung destinations from Tokyo to Timbuktu, but at Kitchn, we’re of the opinion that travel is about more than these once-in-a-lifetime trips. Travel is a day trip to wine country, a drive to the antiques fair a few towns over, or even an exploration of a different neighborhood in your very own city. Travel, for us, is about the everyday explorations that broaden our horizons — and, of course, provide opportunities to taste new and delicious foods.

Why That $25 Hotel Bar Cocktail Is Totally Worth ItPeople
The most expensive cocktail I’ve ever had was at Duke’s Hotel in London. If I’m recalling correctly, it cost me £17. Now, a $17 cocktail is one thing — expensive, yes, but not unheard of, at least in New York — but a £17 cocktail is something else altogether. That single cocktail, a very stiff, very dry martini, set me back $27. And it was totally worth it. Let’s take a look at the math. (Don’t worry it’s not complicated.

With its combination of tender roasted pork, smoked ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard, a Cuban sandwich is pretty close to the ideal sandwich. It checks all the right boxes of salty, smoky, meaty, melty, and tangy. But what if you were to take a classic Cubano and cross it with a grilled cheese? We thought it sounded like a good idea, too, when we spotted it on the menu at chef Richard Hales’ Bird & Bone (the fact that it was served with waffle-cut fries didn’t hurt either).
