F&W is celebrating the season with the #howisummer hashtag. Include it in your Instagram posts for a chance to be featured! Here, star chef Curtis Stone shares some of his favorite warm-weather foods and summer moments—from eating fish tacos to making refreshing, slushy blender drinks.
“For parties I make a whole pitcher of something, like a slushy, rum-spiked mango-pineapple cocktail. That way, I can easily pour my friends a glass or, if I’m answering the door or pulling something out of the oven, guests can serve themselves and each other. It saves me from running around like a headless chook.”
“I make a chunky guacamole and something I call ‘mouth-on-fire salsa’ because of all the chiles I throw in. And I make corn chips. I’ll let you in on a secret: Corn chips are made by tearing up corn tortillas and frying them in oil until they’re golden brown and delicious. Simple, right?”
