Whether you’re hosting a haunted get together or just want to sip something boozy while you watch scary movies alone in the dark, treat yourself to this spicy take on a classic Dark and Stormy.

“On the most basic level, resistance, just like any other active thing, needs to be fed in order to sustain,” Julia Turshen writes in her new cookbook,Feed the Resistance: Recipes and Ideas for Getting Involved (Chronicle Books, October 3, 2017). And every page does just that, with easy recipes for busy activists (Greek chickpea salad), dishes for crowds (tikka masala mac & cheese), and portable snacks and baked goods (persistence biscuits, chocolate espresso pie bars) for protesting fuel and fundraisers. Sandwiched in between are poignant...

As any six-year-old will tell you, the power of cake is undeniable. So it makes a lot of sense that BFF bakers Tess Wilson and Leah Rosenberg decided to use the versatile dessert to make bold political statements. The Instagram feed for the duo’s Protest Cakes project features pic after pic of frosted deliciousness, each with a different theme, like their Climate Change cake (“baked at ever-increasing temperatures and submerged in 2.6 inches of saltwater”) or their Mexican Hot Chocolate Rice Krispies Treat Wall (“to...

Hummus was one of the first dishes I learned how to make early on in my catering career. I thought it was pretty darn great, until I hired an Israeli chef, and found out that I had a lot to learn. Like the fact that adding a pinch of baking soda to the chickpea cooking water helps keep farting to a minimum. And that beating the tahini with a fork makes for an extra-creamy result. Later, I went to Israel and found entire restaurants dedicated to...
