Blue Cheese Coleslaw

Sometimes, a recipe idea gets stuck in the back of my mind – and that’s what happened with today’s Blue Cheese Coleslaw. A few years ago on a business trip, I remember seeing a pulled pork sandwich on the menu at a restaurant where I was eating lunch with a client. That sandwich was served […]

Petite Marmite

Petite Marmite is a delicious, flavorful soup made from a variety of meats and vegetables. The term “petite marmite” translates in French to “little cooking pot.” Traditionally, this classic soup was served in the vessel in which it is cooked – so this dish really gets its name from the pot it cooks in rather […]

New England Boiled Dinner (Corned Beef and Cabbage)

For years, my husband Jack has wanted to share his recipe for New England Boiled Dinner here on A Family Feast. I’m going to admit – I pretty much shot the idea down – thinking that there really isn’t much to making a New England Boiled Dinner! The classic meal consists of corned beef and […]

Kapusta (Polish Cabbage Soup)

Every Sunday, as a child growing up, we spent the afternoon visiting my Babci.  Babci means grandmother in Polish,* was my mother’s mother.  Like most women of her generation, she often made dishes that originated from the ‘old country’ and the distinctive tastes and flavors of those dishes are hardwired in my memory. Even today, […]

Vietnamese Chicken and Cabbage Salad

Deconstructed Stuffed Cabbage

Over the last month or so, as Jack and I started to plan out our holiday recipes to share here on A Family Feast, we spent a lot of time talking about old family recipes! On Jack’s side of the family – Italian fare was the standard, so recipes like beef braciole and lasagna were […]

Braised Cabbage and Apples

This recipe for Braised Cabbage and Apples is an old recipe from my husband Jack’s former food-service days.  At one of the dining locations he managed, his chef – a fellow named Frank, who came from Poland – asked Jack if he could make braised cabbage as the ‘vegetable of the day’ on that particular […]

Fennel and Apple Slaw

Fresh locally-grown fennel has made an appearance at our farmer’s market, and this Fennel and Apple Slaw is a great way to enjoy this wonderful root vegetable!
