Recipe: Big Island Salt Cod Croquettes with Red Chimichurri

croquettes We love these salt cod croquettes from our friend George Mavrothalassitis of Chef Mavro in Honolulu. He puts a Hawaiian spin on the accompanying chimichurri (traditionally a Argentine sauce made with parsley, garlic, olive oil, and red pepper flakes) by adding a native chile pepper. Small red Thai or Asian chile peppers will produce the same result.

The Bookshelf: Betty Fussell Wants You to Eat Your Steak Rare

Raising SteaksThe unflappable Betty Fussell graced us with her presence yesterday at Beard on Books for a rousing discussion of her book Raising Steaks and all things beef.
