What to cook right now

Good morning. Happy President’s Day. Ligaya Mishan had a lovely essay on the country captain’s origins in The Times last week, tracing the aromatic, curry chicken from its homeland in the Lowcountry region of the American South to its origins in Britain and India, “a legacy of colonists whose new palates awakened the possibilities of spice. ”

I am intrigued by Ligaya’s Formula (above), from Rohan Kamicheril, founder and editor of Tiffin, a website devoted to regional Indian cuisines. Kamicheril grew up eating country captains in Bangalore, his mother’s recipe, passed down by his grandmother, of Anglo-Indian descent. There are no soup tomatoes that make up the dish in America, just the water and fat of the chicken, the spiced onions, the golden potatoes. It’s a dish meant to be eaten immediately. I can’t wait to do that.

You can later compare it with this one cooking recipe I learned from community cookbooks and some of the best cooks in and around Charleston, SC. Chicken is fried, then stewed with tomatoes and served with rice with shredded bacon, chopped almonds and raisins, sometimes with sliced ​​bananas. It is very Junior Federation. Also, super delicious.

Captain water for dinner tonight, then! It’s possible with Melissa Clark’s new recipe for pineapple ginger coffee cake for dessert and breakfast tomorrow?

Now, it’s a long ride over rough terrain from anything to do with celery root or maple syrup, but I love Wit review by Alexandra Jacobsin The Times, about “The Heirs: The Lives of Million Dollar Babies“By Laura Thompson.

Equally entertaining is Molly Young’s suggestionin the newsletter Read Like the Wind, Han Suyin’s 1962 novel “Winter love. ” Molly wrote: “This advice goes to all my lesbian zoologists. “Make some noise, ladies!” Others will also be thrilled with the prose. (I found a copy online for about $12.)

Payment procedures Chris Martin’s concert at the Anton Kern Gallery in New York, with its massive Brooklyn-in-the-Catskills energy. (Roberta Smith likes it!)

Final, Richard Fausset put me on the cover of William Beckmann about “Volver, Volver,” which Beckmann went live in Texas last year. Listen, cook a lot, and I’ll be back on Wednesday.
