Every cook needs a perfect cold-and-flu-curing chicken noodle soup in his or her repertoire. While we’re not giving medical advice, we urge you to make a batch next time you or a loved one is in need.
Using a little orange juice as part of the cooking liquid for the quinoa adds a lovely boost of bright flavor to the dish.
Here's a tip of the hat to the aromatic Indian curry houses that dot New York City's borough of Queens.
The Chimichurri (which can easily be doubled) keeps well in the refrigerator for several days, and is also wonderful drizzled over salmon, served with shrimp, red meat and chicken.
Make this crowd-pleaser ahead of time through step #3, place the cutlets on the baking sheet and top them with the sauce and cheese. Just before serving, bring the pork to room temperature and finish in the oven for the final 10 minutes of cooking, or until they’re heated through.
This Peruvian salsa of onions, sweet peppers and bright lime juice is served on many meats and fish, but is especially good against the crunchy crust and tender, juicy meat of this fried pork chop.
A thick layer of slowly caramelized onion is slathered over a pizza-like crust and topped with anchovies and olives in this classic Nicoise tart.
Legend has it this dish, created in 1899 in New Orleans, was named for the very wealthy John D. Rockefeller—because the sauce was nearly as rich as he. The dish has evolved over the years, but is most often made with minced green herbs or leaves, butter and breadcrumbs, baked over fresh shucked oysters in the half shell.
Layered meats, provolone and olive salad make this New Orleans-born sandwich a tourist attraction in its native city. While it is not traditional, we suggest you make yours up to a day ahead, which allows time for the flavors of the olive salad to soak into the bread.
The classic combination of lentils and peas makes an elegant yet accessible appetizer. The pancakes may be made up to one day in advance and the dish assembled 2-4 hours ahead of serving.
This luxurious dish signals a special occasion. To present it at its finest, save small fan-shaped pieces of the shell to garnish the plate. The sauce may be drizzled on the plate with a spoon or squeeze bottle or placed in a small bowl on each plate.
