Makes 8 doughnuts

1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons roasted and crushed sesame seeds
1 tube Pillsbury original biscuit dough
4 cups Crisco shortening

Mix the sugar, cinnamon, and sesame seeds in a medium-size bowl. Pop open the tube of dough and pull apart the biscuits—they come preportioned, so this will be easy. In a big, heavy pot, heat the shortening over high heat; you’ll know it’s ready when a tiny piece of biscuit dough sizzles when added to the oil. Fry the biscuit dough until each piece becomes puffy and brown on all sides, about 2 minutes. Flip the pieces over and fry them for 2 minutes more. Pull out the doughnuts and rest them on paper towels for a minute or two, then toss them immediately in the sugar mixture.
Get bloated.

New York, NY - Head to the wonderful Picture Farm Gallery in south Williamsburg tomorrow evening to see artist Paola Citterio's brilliantly intriguing, thought-provoking works. Go for the art and stay for the party — take it from Italians on how to make the most of a night out!

About the Artist
Paola Citterio is an Italian, Brooklyn-based artist who works with natural wool fiber, using simple traditional techniques like needle felting and hand-knotted rugs as her canvas. The trance-like process involved in creating teh work--the dyeing, cutting, and knotting, and the constant repetition of gesture--often takes weeks. "People think that I am crazy," says Citterio, "to spend so much time. But I find it quietly exhilirating. I enjoy getting lost."

Picture Farm Gallery
338 Wythe Ave
New York, NY 11211
between 4th St & 2nd St in Williamsburg

The Porky Melt
Serves 6



1 1/2 lb. extra fatty pork shoulder, cut and trimmed​​

1/2 lb. ground beef​​​​​​​

1 oz. salt ​​​​​​​​

2 1/2 oz. nonfat dry milk powder​​​​​​

1/2 tsp. white pepper​​​​​​​

1/2 tsp. ground ginger​​​​​​​

1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg​​​​​​​

1 cold whole egg, beaten​​​​​​​

1/2 c. cream​​​​​​​​

1/4 lb. cheddar cheese, diced small​

4 slices of cheddar cheese​


With a knife, dice to medium size fatty pork shoulder and ground beef. Season with dry spices and dry milk, and grind through a medium die meat grinder. Or ask butcher to grind extra fatty pork shoulder, then mix ground pork shoulder and ground beef with all dry spices and dry milk by hand or with a stand mixer. Using a paddle attachment, mix egg and cream mixture into meat mixture. Fold in cheddar cheese. With hands, portion into 6-ounce patties.

In a cast-iron pan or griddle, cook patties on medium heat in 1-2 tbsp. oil for 3-4 minutes. Flip over, and cook for another 3-4 minutes. When patties are almost done cooking (around 2 1/2 minutes), add a slice of cheddar cheese (or shredded) on top of each patty. Melt cheese by using a lid (or another pan) to cover. When cheese is completely melted and patties are cooked through, remove and put to the side.

Sandwich, per person

2 pieces marble rye bread, toasted and buttered​​​​

2 oz. yellow onions, grilled​​​​​​​​​

1 6-oz Bratwurst patty

Deli mustard, to taste​​

Butter one side of each slice of bread and toast in cast-iron pan or griddle at medium heat until it turns golden brown. Remove and set aside. Cut onions into 1/4-inch thick round slices, grill on high heat with salt, pepper and oil, for about 3 minutes. Place in a bowl and wrap with plastic wrap—they will continue cooking.

Spread deli mustard on non-buttered side of each slice of marbled rye bread. Stack patty, add onion, and top with other slice of bread.
