COOKING WITH SIMON: Scary Fruit is a Sweet Delight
Remember that scary movie from the 1980s where the little girl is staring in to a blank television scream and then turns to her mother and says, “They’re here.” We get a lot of blank stares from kids these days, but their staring at phones and IPods, not televisions.
I am talking about the movie “Poltergeist” and no this recipe is not about ghosts. It’s about a scary fruit that some people are afraid to even and aren’t really sure how to eat.

COOKING WITH SIMON: Outdoor Fall Dining
September marks the start of fall, but if you step outside it still feels like summer.

COOKING WITH SIMON: Bridging the flavor gap between summer and fall
During my time in America I have lived on the East Coast, West Coast and now, near the Gulf Coast. Each offered a different variety of seafood specialties. Near the Pacific I remember great oysters and salmon, the Gulf Coast, of course has lots of great shrimp, and in the Atlantic regions, there was nothing better than crab.

Cooking with Simon: Dreaming of Fiji in Palestine
This time of year it seems like everyone – except me – is on vacation. The restaurant business doesn’t seem to be very holiday friendly, because food never stops and holidays are when people want to eat out the most.
