Ful Medames (Egyptian Fava Beans)
The Domestic Man

Okay, let’s start by saying that I am not very good at making pretty hard-boiled eggs. I don’t really see the point in it – making a delicious, but maybe not pretty, hard-boiled egg is 4,235x easier than making a pretty hard-boiled egg. And they taste the same. So it’s just not something I’m going to devote a large part of my life to perfecting, and the eggs above are about the best you’ll ever get from me. If you’re feeling sleuthy, you could consult the dozens of other pictures on this site with hard-boiled eggs, and you’ll find that none of them are winners. Those bloggers and photographer ..read more

Oil Down (Grenadan Fish and Chicken Stew)
The Domestic Man
by Russ Crandall
1y ago
Hi everyone, I hope you’re doing well. I’m still around, just haven’t been posting. I visited this site the other day and noticed that the most recent recipe was for a ButcherBox promotion back around Thanksgiving, and and it kind of bothered me. So I thought I would post a new recipe to at least push that one down a bit in the stream. I developed this recipe when writing The Heritage Cookbook, but I ended up with too many recipes from the Caribbean, and so it didn’t make the final cut. But it’s still a simple, delicious recipe, with some subtle tropical notes that bring sunshine to your plat ..read more

This is always my favorite time of the year to be in the kitchen. Not only do we get to start focusing on soups and stews to break that oncoming winter chill, but it’s roasting season. Every year my friends at ButcherBox run a one-day promotion where they offer a free turkey plus $10 off any new signups with their program. The turkey is 10-14lbs, all-natural, and animal welfare certified — and will ship right to your home in time for Thanksgiving. We’ve been using ButcherBox for several years now.

Nyama Choma (Simple Kenyan Grilled Meat) with Kachumbari Salad
The Domestic Man
by Russ Crandall
2y ago
Today I’m sharing a simple grilled meat recipe, something that really hits the spot on a summer evening. Its preparation is deceptively simple: just rub it all over with lemon juice, give it a fair bit of salt, and grill it until cooked through. Nyama Choma’s charm comes from its down-to-basics approach, letting you complement the pure meat flavor with a spicy and tangy Kachumbari Salad (also pictured: Sukuma Wiki. Nyama Choma (Simple Kenyan Grilled Meat) with Kachumbari Salad (Gluten-free, Primal, Paleo, Keto) Servings: 6 Time: 1 hour Difficulty: Easy 3-4 lbs bone-in goat, lamb, or beef p ..read more

Chicken Tagine
The Domestic Man

Hi everyone. It’s been a bit since I posted a recipe. Someone wrote me the other day and asked whether I had a Chicken Tagine recipe. I did (and do), and it reminded me that I have many tasty recipes that didn’t make the final cut into The Heritage Cookbook. So instead of letting them waste away in some random Google Doc, I’ll try my best to post a recipe here and there. Things are fine. Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. I thought that all this telework and social distancing would give me an opportunity to return to my more prolific days here on the blog, but I’ve found that since I ..read more

My New Album – Stark Sudden Morning
The Domestic Man
by Russ Crandall
2y ago
Fun fact about me: before all this food/writing stuff, I considered myself, first and foremost, a songwriter. Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, I played in several bands; I started with punk rock, then softened up a bit over the years. I met my wife through friends I made when first starting in Hawaii’s independent rock scene in 2002, and my wife and I even played in a band together for a while (she’s a killer drummer, by the way). But once my health started to decline in the mid-2000s, I no longer had the energy to keep up with music, and songwriting became a real challenge. Anyone who’s ..read more

Tandoori Chicken
The Domestic Man
by Russ Crandall
2y ago
Memorial Day is right around the corner. It’s often considered the first grilling weekend of the season across the United States, although it might feel a bit different this year without friends coming over. Either way, this recipe is tasty enough that it will hopefully compensate for the lack of Memorial Day parties we’ll all be attending in 2020. While Tandoori Chicken recipes are found in my first two books, this beloved dish is making its blog debut today. It gets its name from the traditional clay oven found in South Asia, known as a tandoor in Hindi/Urdu. This dish as we know it today w ..read more

Community Sourdough Bread
The Domestic Man

Like many others, I’ve found myself with a lot of time on my hands for the past month or so. Initially, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to catch up (and get ahead) on the many blog/social media items I’ve had on pause for the past few years, a remnant of when I was finishing up The Heritage Cookbook. That didn’t turn out to be the case. Social distancing, or as I have grown to call it, physical distancing, has been relatively drama-free for our household, but our daily habits have evolved. We are taking the concept seriously, because I am on immunosuppressant medication, as well a ..read more

Poronkäristys (Sautéed Reindeer)
The Domestic Man
by Russ Crandall
2y ago
You probably don’t have any reindeer sitting around at your house (unless you do – hello, Canadians and Scandinavians, thanks for visiting my site!). Luckily, this simple recipe can also be used with venison if you or a loved one had an eventful hunting trip this year, or even with bison or beef steaks if you didn’t have a good hunting trip. This dish hails from Finland, but is enjoyed in Sweden, Norway and Russia as well. What I like about this recipe is that it makes no assumptions – the key to this delicious meal is slicing it thinly, seasoning it sparingly, and nudging it gently towards t ..read more

Sukuma Wiki (Sautéed Seasoned Greens) – Meat free version
The Domestic Man
by Russ Crandall
2y ago
Nearly seven years ago, I developed my recipe for Sukuma Wiki, a Kenyan braised collard greens and ground beef recipe, and it’s been a favorite ever since. I put it in my first book, The Ancestral Table, and it’s often the dish I point to in the book when someone asks where they should start cooking. It takes about 30 minutes to prepare, and uses very affordable ingredients — and tastes great, too. When writing The Heritage Cookbook, I knew that I wanted to include this dish to represent Eastern African cookery, but wanted to go back to the drawing board in terms of honoring the traditional p ..read more
