Hans Wegner’s designs revamped

Legendary furniture designer Hans. J. Wegner (1914—2007) designed upwards of 500 chairs in his lifetime, more than 100 of which were mass produced. Suffice it to say, the Danish midcentury modern master didn’t waste time sitting around. A pioneer of “organic functionality,” he thoughtfully combined beautiful, sculptural elements, high-quality materials and utilitarian qualities.

Farro has regained its legions of admirers

Farro is one of the ancient grains making a big comeback today, and with good reason, as it brings flair, flavor and whole-grain nutrition to the table in an easy, accessible way. It is a type of wheat that resembles grains of barley, but with a nuttier flavor and delightful chewiness. It’s perfect for today’s home cook, because it is simple to prepare — you basically boil it like rice — and it is ready in about 30 minutes. No soaking necessary.

Grilled shrimp skewers

Grilling shrimp is a delicious way to cook them. But don’t just toss shrimp on the grill (unless they’re huge) because they could fall through the grates. A better way is to skewer them so they cook evenly and they’re easier to tend to. When preparing the shrimp, remove all but the tail of the shell which makes a nice presentation.

Grill on-the-vine tomatoes for a simple, stunning summer starter

Often, the best dishes are the simplest. This is illustrated perfectly by this recipe for grilled tomatoes on the vine with burrata. Tomatoes with mozzarella is one of my favorite combinations, and I love it even when the tomatoes are less than perfect and the mozzarella is a little bland. But take a bunch of cherry tomatoes on the vine, grill them and serve them with burrata and some grilled bread and you’ve got an amazing dish!
