There's still some summer left and we have ideas for clam bakes, grilled shrimp, and cocktails, along with plenty of kitchen tips. We also have a great recipe for a portobello mushroom po' boy.
Alex Brown and Evan George, authors of Lust for Leaf, describe themselves as "bearded, mescal-swilling Martha Stewarts." They co-write as Hot Knives at the site urbanhonking. By now you get the picture that they love food and, despite being vegetarians, have no use for rules or being hemmed in. Their recipes are original, ranging from veggie hot dogs made from scratch, to the one we're focusing on, po' boys. No seafood in sight.
