Ripe tomatoes are one of the best things about summer. And we've still got a little bit of time to enjoy them before the season ends and we are stuck in the depths of winter. This tomato cobbler with white cheddar biscuits has become a summer staple in our house, we can't get enough of it.

Ingredients

  • For biscuits:
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 6 Tbsp. cold butter, cut into cubes
  • ½ cup white cheddar, grated
  • ¾ cup cold buttermilk
  • For cobbler:
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 12 ounces cherry tomatoes
  • ⅛ cup chopped basil
  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • pinch red pepper flakes

Instructions

  1. To make the biscuits, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and black pepper in a bowl. Add butter and use a finger or a fork to break up the butter. Once finished, it should resembled coarse crumbs.
  2. Add in the cheese and stir well. Create a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the buttermilk. Stir well to combine, forming a shaggy dough.
  3. Pour the dough onto a floured surface and knead it until it comes together. Cover it in plastic wrap and refrigerate while you prepare the cobbler.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Heat butter and olive oil in a sauce pan over medium heat. Add onions. Brown until caramelized, about 20 minutes. Add garlic and cook an additional minute.
  5. Remove from heat, add balsamic vinegar and set aside.
  6. In a large bowl, toss together cherry tomatoes, basil, flour and red pepper. Add in onions and toss until everything is well combined.
  7. Place cobbler ingredients into a square glass baking dish. Bake for 25 minutes.
  8. Remove dough from the fridge. Roll the dough into a ¾ inch thickness. Using a biscuit cutter, cut the biscuits into rounds.
  9. Remove the filling from the oven and place 6 biscuits on top of the cobbler. You may have additional biscuits left over, you can bake those along with the cobbler.
  10. Return the cobbler to the oven and bake 20 additional minutes until the biscuits are golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.

The Invasion of the Brit Tabloid

October 22, 2020

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Magical Hermès

October 06, 2020

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.

My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
