Looks like Washington weather won’t be cooling off anytime soon, so if you’re entertaining this weekend — or even if you’re not — have we got a menu for you. For our third annual No-Cook Issue, writer Tony Rosenfeld rolls out a four-course feast that won’t require you to light the stove, fire up the grill or even turn on the microwave.
Eat cool, drink cool. In India, they’ve perfected the art of mixing spice and ice to create refreshing beverages, and Visi R. Tilak reveals four of them.
Finally, Food editor Joe Yonan shares a no-cook recipe of his own creation: Guaca-chi, a bright Latin-Korean mashup of — in case you missed the cues — guacamole and kimchi. The recipe can be found in his new “Eat Your Vegetables,” his second cookbook aimed at singles.
There’s plenty more in this week’s Food section, and of course there’s also today’s Free Range chat. Got a question, a problem, an opinion or just a little time on your hands? Then tune in at noon for an hour of culinary give-and-take. Both guest authors will be joining us.
