Yamgate: The Purple Truth

We've been seeing beautiful baked goods made with ube - a purple yam - popping up in our Three Kitchens Podcast Instagram feed. These purple-hued goodies inspired Erin to try making the ube halaya (the purple jam used as the base for ube baking), and using it to make muffins and cookies. As you might imagine, this sparked a lively discussion, more research, and plenty of confusion. Is what we find in our grocery stores really ube? Or is it a purple yam, or maybe a sweet potato? What we know...

A New Way to Rosé

In this episode of Three Kitchens, we try a beef tenderloin that Erin roasted to melt-in-your-mouth perfection and served with a rosé sauce and quick pickled onion.
