Good morning. Genevieve Ko right here filling in for Sam and channeling his power: As we speak’s a very good day to consider the meals for events you’re throwing subsequent weekend.
For me, which means going to Costco — my comfortable place — and loading up on snacks and flats of peaches in order that they’re ripe sufficient by then to bake into Edna Lewis’s flaky-crust cobbler, one in every of my favourite summer time desserts from one in every of my favourite cookbook authors.
However at the moment, I’m going to get a style of peaches from the sesame dressing for Eric Kim’s crispy wonton salad (above), which he wrote about in The New York Occasions Journal this week. Generally I add further crunch to the salad by frying dried rice vermicelli and peanuts within the scorching oil after the wonton wrappers are achieved. With that, a mojito and a few nice rolls.
As for the remainder of the week …
I examined this cheesy stovetop mac with sausage and kale, and it’s already a brand new favourite. Impressed by the Seventies boxed pasta mixes created to stretch a pound of beef, this from-scratch model is particularly savory from Italian sausage. Every little thing melds right into a gooey, hearty meal in a single skillet, leaving you with virtually no dishwashing.
Any fish can be utilized in this jorim, a garlicky, gingery Korean soy-sauce braise, but it surely’s tastiest with fatty steaks of salmon, mackerel or black cod. Entire radishes simmered within the sauce, with warmth from jalapeños, develop into tender and candy.

As Sam would say, it has nothing to do with cookies or katsu, however this conversation between Jeff Bridges and John Lithgow impressed me to start out watching “The Old Man” on FX. (Mr. Bridges, my dude.)
There are a whole lot of new selections for summer reading, however I usually want to lie on the seaside with the books I had been assigned as a scholar. They’re pleasant once they’re not required and when extra dwelling makes extra sense of them. Proper now, that’s Zora Neale Hurston’s “Their Eyes Were Watching God.”
For those who’ve ever seen BTS carry out, then why they’ve been one of many largest bands for almost a decade. For those who haven’t, learn this New Yorker piece from E. Tammy Kim to know why their present “hiatus” issues.
Lastly, in The Occasions, the operating commentary on this week’s Westminster Dog Show will make you giggle — and need a massive, fluffy canine.
