Features: Bloody Good: Rising and shining with bodacious Bloody Marys
Like cures like – or at least that's what they've said for centuries. The medical jury's still out on this claim, but in the meantime we say drink up come morning. Remedies for what ails your aching head run the gamut from a touch piquant to hot-hot-hot. And it's not just vodka that's for breakfast anymore. Sidle up to the bar On Sunday mornings in St. Louis, the Bloody Mary bar at The Scottis...
Features: Creative Kabobing: More combinations than you can shake a stick at
Skewering is a fairly global cooking technique. Persians, Chinese, Greeks and Spaniards have all skewered dishes. Heck, you can find shish kabobs at fairs nearly as often as you see cotton candy. Some of us, however, aren't satisfied with the same oldbeef-bellpepper-mushroom-on-a-stick shtick. Traditionally, kabob cookery has implied bite-sized pieces of meat, poultry, seafood and sometimes veg...
Reels and Meals: Filmmaker finds comedic fodder in Iran’s ban on female soccer fans
Iran isn’t exactly the first place that comes to mind when you think of comedy. Let’s face it, in the 28 years since the Shah was deposed, we’ve come to associate Iran with “angry rhetoric,” not “rollicking satire.” Fortunately for Iran (and for us), its people are far more independent-minded than its government would care to admit. Nowhere is this more evident than in Iranians’ near-obsessi...
Features: He Said / She Said: Patricia and John rate falafel from the pita to the tahini
From posh to the parking lot, there are a number of venues in which to enjoy a falafel sandwich, but the most important question is, of course, how does it taste? John’s profile: Pita can make or break; don’t fear the deep-fryer; The O’Reilly Factor: How will this hold up in the shower? Patricia’s profile: A falafel calls for abundant lettuce, tomato, onion; the pita needs to be supportive bu...
Features: Plant Locally, Grow Globally: Local chefs offer tips for multicultural horticulture
For many home chefs, the love of preparing good food often goes hand in hand with a joy of cultivating favorite ingredients in one’s own garden. Nothing compares to freshly harvested herbs and vegetables transformed into a delicious meal. And beyond their functional value, these plants add great beauty to the landscape. It’s fairly easy to figure out what to plant in mainstream culinary gardens...

Co-owner Behshid Bahrami died Tuesday, Dec. 13, at age 74, according to his daughter Natasha Bahrami, who said he passed quickly from natural causes.

BLOG: Drink This Weekend Edition: Negroni Week
  It’s that time of year again; bars the world over have stocked up on the Campari for Negroni Week, a celebration of that classic cocktail that also benefits the community. A Negroni – equal parts gin, sweet vermouth and Campari garnished with an orange twist – makes for a satisfying start to any meal, and they're made all the more so when you know that a portion of the proceeds from your ...
BLOG: Drink This Weekend Edition: Vesper Martini
  The martini is best known as the 007 or the official drink of James Bond – though any bartender will tell you it should definitely be stirred, not shaken. This Vesper martini combines both vodka and gin and requires a little finesse to perfect. The ratio of vodka to gin varies, but most classic Vesper recipes have a 1-to-1 ratio. I prefer a stronger gin pour, particularly a stronger pi...
BLOG: The Scoop: South Grand, Clayton restaurateurs and community regroup after day of tension, protest
  Restaurants and businesses in the South Grand district are cleaning up after sustaining damage late last night, Nov. 24, following the protests near Interstate 44 and Grand Boulevard. People assembled in the Shaw neighborhood there after St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch delivered the grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting deat...
BLOG: Drink This Weekend Edition: It Doesn’t Get Better
  The Bee’s Knees is a classic gin cocktail with origins in Prohibition, when booze was terrible (yes, even gin) and extra ingredients were added to cover up the taste of the inferior spirit. The result included a deliciously easy cocktail called The Bee’s Knees. I winterized it with barrel-aged gin (I use Smooth Ambler), which mellows out the cocktail and adds a malty component. You can fi...

BLOG: Drink This Weekend Edition: Drink The Dirty Persian at Cafe Natasha now, and for another 30 years
  When Natasha Bahrami tapped my shoulder recently to tell me I just had to try The Dirty Persian at her cafe natasha’s, I arrived at the restaurant’s doorstep at 3200 S. Grand Blvd., in record time. The draw? First, hearing the martini contained a spicy, 8-year-old brine her father had made for pickling Persian vegetables. Second, when I asked Bahrami which base spirit the restaurant used ...
BLOG: Meatless Mondays: Cuckoo for Kookoo at Cafe Natasha
We know what you’re thinking – another vegetarian column, really? Just give us a minute. Meatless Mondays is a movement that’s building across the country, one built not around a hatred of meat or a stance against the way animals are treated but rather a love for vegetables – and the health benefits that come along with them. While the Meatless Monday concept hasn’t quite picked up in St...
BLOG: Teetotaler: White coffee at Cafe Natasha's
The white coffee at cafe natasha's on South Grand Boulevard is, in fact, not coffee at all. Deceiving? Maybe. But manager and co-owner Natasha Bahrami sees this misnomer as a way to engage her customers, rather than mislead them. Lebanese-inspired white coffee, or café blanc, is simple: water boiled with a bit of sugar and either orange blossoms or rose water. In Lebanon, teens drink it after a...
