Keep it light and fresh with this veggie-packed stromboli recipe.

We caught a bit of a shopping bug this week when Amazon Prime Day gave us the opportunity to revamp our kitchens. We also talked to Josh Grinker of Kings County Imperial in Brooklyn about shopping for woks, one of the most important tools in his kitchen. In the Food Republic library, we dove nose-first into Marissa A. Ross’ new book, Wine. All The Time, as well as Tim Hayward’s Knife. Vegetable-forward dishes like a vegan stromboli and beet salad were on the table in time for peak summer heat. All that and more on this week’s Hot Topics.
