  1. I love Julia Turshen—she brings such grace to whatever project she works on, whether it’s a simple article in a magazine, an interview, or a book. Thanks for this, Tim.

  2. I love your questions for Julie, Tim. And the meatballs look perfect.

  3. I love posts like this, Tim! Great work.

  4. This is an especially inspiring Lottie + Doof quiz. Love her voice and passion.

  5. Thoughtful questions, got me to thinking how I would answer them myself. Spaghetti and meatballs, always a favorite comfort food.


  6. Amounts for garlic/fennel seed?

  7. I want that for dinner.
    And I could not agree more about the avocado. Great post!

  8. I’ve been noticing Julia Turshen’s work a lot lately too, for good reason. Love her voice and style–feel that we’re kindred spirits in the kitchen (not the east because my maiden name is Tirsch). Avocado with maldon salt? You read my mind. Lovely recipe here–great way to lighten the meatballs.

  9. Julia is the best – and so so lovely in person!! Loved this interview with her!!

  10. Gwyneth featured this recipe on one of her first GOOP posts – properly credited to Julia, of course. It must be a stellar go-to recipe!

  11. Lovely! I love the idea of intentional turkey meatballs, so often people substitute turkey for a leaner version of something that was intended to be beef.

  12. I love Julia Turshen!! These meatballs look beautiful and delicious. Love the idea of lemon zest.

  13. Crunchy and salty! With you all the way on that!

  14. tim, you always interview the most interesting people. love julia! this pasta made my heart race. turkey meatballs for life!

  15. until now, i did not know the ‘name’ Julia Turshen but i’ve loved her work – actually, i think i had an epiphany watching the Spain: On The Road Again series; it was then i decided i wanted to do something with food, culture, storytelling – i loved everything. single. thing. about that series. lovely recipe to boot – and i’m definitely going to be ordering Gwyneth’s book – too many people have said they loved it!

  16. Side note — You got my vote for best food blog on saveur. I’m so glad they recognized your great work – photography, topics, food choices, and your sincere stories that give nods to others and not just yourself (you know how the blogosphere can sometimes get). I love your approach!

  17. It’s hard not to fall in love with meatball and pasta. It’s almost like comfort food but more than that; it’s a way of reminding yourself that you can get through anything with a good meal! :) Love the quiz questions!

  18. made this tonight, so yummy. i have a feeling that my boyfriend and i will be fighting over left overs…

  19. This has become my go-to meatball recipe. Sometimes I change it up, using bread soaked in milk instead of panko or adding ricotta. It’s a winner that feels decadent, but still is pretty healthy. My boyfriend also loves this recipe. It’s a total keeper. Thank you for posting!

  20. Thanks for checking in, Sophia! Glad you like the recipe.

  21. Made this tonight. Absolutely delicious. Fennel seeds, herbs and lemon zest make it fragrant and flavorsome but like Sophia said, a fairly healthy hearty dish. Thanks for sharing!

  22. Yummers…. my significant other wanted meatballs and spaghetti last night (usually a long and laborious process). I was reluctant at first, but he has a bad cold and was looking at me with puppy eyes. I relented and then miraculously remembered this recipe. God it was good and so easy! Thanks, Tim!

    Referred back to this page after your recent post about small victories….lo and behold:

    “These meatballs are perfect for a special occasion, or a weeknight meal. Julia brightens them up with some lemon zest which really makes them shine.”

    Made me smile :)
