Kiwi + Peppers + Watercress = Foods That Cool; A Recipe Trilogy As Our Series Finale

In this feature, we take one food in three directions: sweet, savory and a spin. Sounds easy if you’re talking tomatoes — but a sweet burger? And with the spin, you may be in for a culinary adventure … or an atrocity. You just never know.

We close out our month with a Sweet, Savory & Spin post from your founding foodies. It’s no surprise to see Sarah tackling Sweet, and it’s clear she’s got the LOWdown on “Food That Cool” with a cold food and an equally chilling main ingredient. Amy’s got a surprise in mind for Savory: hot peppers! She visits The Spread in Norwalk, Ct., for something spicy to take the heat off. And, last but not least, April brings us to the finish line with the Spin … and a cool ingredient from our first post of the month. She adds in another cooling food, and kicks it up with some tangy feta for a simple end-of-summer salad.
