Uchi Houston’s Chris Davies crafted a quick recipe you can cook in your own kitchen, with just four ingredients! It’s worth adding these items to your next curbside grocery order to recreate the hip sushi restaurant’s addictive crispy Brussels sprouts. Here’s how you do it!


  1. Create the sauce: Combine equal parts oyster sauce and Thai sweet chili sauce in a bowl, and add a few squirts of lemon juice.
  2. Cut the Brussels sprouts in half or quarters; they should be about the size of a half-dollar.
  3. Fry the veggies in canola oil until crispy.
  4. Drain well on an oven tray lined with paper towels. While they’re still hot, season with salt to taste.
  5. Add the Brussels sprouts to the bowl of sauce. Mix until well coated, and serve!

Wiley's 'Judith and Holofernes'

THE ENERGY IN the foyer of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Caroline Wiess Law Building is quite lively, thanks to the installation of two provocative paintings, painted 400 years apart — one by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian 17th-century female artist, the other by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary, Nigerian-born queer Black artist. Each depicts the grisly climax in the Old Testament Book of Judith, in which the widow Judith decapitates the Assyrian general Holofernes, thus saving her besieged Jewish city of Betulia.
