Paige’s Candle Co.

After losing her mother at an early age, Paige Graham found healthy self-expression through outlets like candlemaking. She began Paige’s Candle Co. in 2017, bringing handmade candles to inner cities and beyond. Each candle is made with vegan-friendly soy wax and a blend of handcrafted, phthalate-free fragrances from Queens and Brooklyn. We are loving the Hazelnut & Coffee Taxonomy scent.

With notes of vanilla, peach blossom, violet, orris, and sandalwood, the SOHO candle is a serious treat for the senses.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
