Devoted to dumplings

Asian dumplings are irresistible little packets of goodness that represent comfort and fun of communal eating.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
While it’s sometimes difficult to classify what exactly a dumpling is, there are three basic traits — dumplings most often have a filling; they are wrapped in a type of dough; and they are boiled, steamed or pan-fried. Different folds and shapes abound for these goodies: round, crescent, basket, pleated and more.

Hot and cool

Tandoori cooking blends unique spice and sweetness into traditional Indian fare.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
What is it that makes the enduring flavor of tandoori cooking so special? It’s the tandoor, a cylindrical clay oven used predominantly in India. The charcoal used in the oven imparts a smoky flavor, the signature of tandoori cooking. Savory dishes commonly cooked in a tandoor oven are kebabs, tikkas, the popular naan bread and tandoori roti.

Veggie brunch

Vegetarians and vegans need not be left out of brunch for lack of options.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Brunch typically evokes images of bacon, waffles, biscuits and sausage gravy, eggs Benedict, coffee and mimosas. If you are super-healthy, you might order a side of fruit. In short, brunch is rarely the healthiest meal of the week, and why should it be? It’s the weekend.

Food and Drink Features

Devon Green
With the possibility of a new monument in the popular conversation, a new character on social media has OKC all atwitter.
