I’m new to Chow, but from what I’ve seen, I like.
The post that drew me into the website was on birthday etiquette regarding an all-carne meal for a birthday girl with vegan friends in the mix. I didn’t necessarily agree with the moderator’s advice, but I loved the vibe of the site. The writing is a bit rock-and-roll without being over-the-top hipster-snob, the recipes are things that I and people I hang with would eat, and it’s full of nerdy goodness to boot.
Now, I get recipes from Chow sent to my email account. Some of them I read, some I discard immediately, some I pass onto girlfriends in hopes that they are more ambitious than I and will eventually feed the completed dish to me.
This morning, they sent a recipe that was so simple yet so perfect for any gathering…one of those things I’d just do on the fly. I love that they think of these little things and send out handy reminders during the holidays. Because, honestly, when you’re shit out of luck and trying to throw a casual-yet-classy snack table together, sometimes you forget about the basics.
Enter Roasted Rosemary Walnuts. Hackable with any nut (and a variety of other edible substances, I’m sure), this is an elegant snack.
Nice, Chow, nice.
