A philly cheesesteak sandwich seems deceptively simple to make but it’s much easier to botch than you would think.

A philly is, at its heart, thin slices of steak, onions, green peppers and a rich cheese (I’ve seen everything from the traditional provalone or Havarti to cheddar used) between a couple of toasted but fresh sub rolls. Sounds pretty easy, but more often than not, some element is off. The steak is overdone and too chewy, there’s too many onions,... Read More

September 6th, 2017

Gingerly, delicately, with the utmost care and precision, Andrew Huot is running a surgical scalpel over ancient pages that smell of dust and adhesive and are stained brown as gingerbread. He is dismantling connections made decades prior, which have succumbed to the rigors of time, in order to save the precious materials within. “Sometimes you need to tear something apart to put it back together,” Huot says. “In order to make it stronger and reinforce it, so that it can last a lot longer than it ever would have.” Huot’s careful hand is reinvigorating a cook book from 1946, its pages golden... Read More
