Food Notes: Tasty recipes for meatless meals during Lenten season

The annual wassailing of the apple trees at Terhune Orchards is one more event that could have been a casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic. But you don’t have to miss out on the festivities thanks to the inventive ideas of the owners who have made it possible to celebrate virtually or in person at the farm in Lawrence.

The orchard traditionally stages the wassail event amid its oldest apple trees each winter, with dancing, music and cider-soaked bits of bread to thank the trees for the last harvest and bless them for the next one. Based on an ancient British custom that is designed to help keep them safe from evil spirits, it’s a bright spot during the cold winter months.

Dining’s new pandemic reality: shorter menus, quicker meals, and ugly-delicious dishes

Every departure from his original dream was made to keep his staff employed, he says. “No one is going to order a $68 steak to go,” he thought when the pandemic emptied his dining room last year. Beran replaced eight ounces of dry-aged rib-eye with the same amount of hanger steak for $30. “Fancy food doesn’t travel well,” the chef says. So his dishes became more rustic (cassoulet was a recent possibility), and portions grew, giving customers the option of leftovers.

“We’ve gone from pressed duck served tableside to a glorified cheese sandwich,” he says — and from a menu with 32 dishes to a dozen.

Almost a year into what insiders liken to an extinction event for the industry, with 110,000 restaurants closed during the pandemic, diners are adjusting to the reality of fewer menu choices, briefer dining times, online ordering and dishes whose looks take a back seat

3 best vegetarian dinner recipes for healthy, cozy meals

As someone who loves vegetables, low-maintenance cooking and pasta, I’m always trying to combine these three things in new, unfussy ways. For example, while I love eggplant, I am not a fan of the salting step, though it is usually necessary, so I sometimes find myself skipping eggplant dishes out of laziness — until now. Enter my new favorite broiler method that leaves out that salting step. As you’ll see below, each dish has its own little spin to keep things easy, a tad healthier and, most importantly, delicious. Here, you’ll find three vegetarian recipes that hit the cozy, comforting mark — without a ton of effort.
