Chicken Curry Warms the Soul

A trip to India couldn’t be easier. This Indian twist on a family staple, chicken brings the exotic flavors of fenugreek, garam masala and cumin to your kitchen. I asked my friend, Jyotika Bahree to share a recipe from her native India. She sent me the following that I pass on to you. Don’t be intimidated by the list of ingredients. as a they are readily available at a well stocked supermarket like the Boise Coop, Whole Foods or Atkinson’s in Ketchum.

Inspired by The Hundred Foot Journey by Richard Morais (reviewed in Edible Idaho South’s Spring 2013 issue), this special dish was often prepared by my mother for a weekend meal in Delhi, though hers was usually made in brown gravy with tomatoes.Read More

Gary Kucy, the subject of a story that ran in the Winter issue of Edible Idaho South, was recently named a semifinalist in the esteemed James Beard Awards. Congratulations to Gary! Here’s that story again:

The hinterlands surrounding resort communities like McCall and Sun Valley are teeming with wild game. Right?  But it’s not like buckskin-clad mountain men with scruffy beards are knocking at the backdoors of local restaurants offering up recently harvested elk and deer. It doesn’t work that way. If you hear a shot in the woods during hunting season, that meat is probably going into someone’s personal freezer.… Read More
