One of my favorite Japanese dishes (washoku), chicken-cheese katsu has a crispy fried panko exterior encasing a juicy chicken interior that’s filled with rich, gooey cheese.
This is a summery, indulgent recipe. The seafood-taste of the mushrooms is augmented by the crab meat and lots of butter, which is the friend of seafood and mushrooms alike. Fresh herbs and a generous squeeze of lemon brighten up the richness of the dish, and the lush meatiness of the mushrooms and crabmeat is complemented by snappy bites of asparagus.
Menudo is a comforting Mexican soup with melt-in-your-mouth tripe and hominy in a lightly spicy broth. Even if you’re not a devoted tripe-lover, this dish will make a convert of you.
This stir-fry comes together fast and yields juicy shrimp and snappy bites of asparagus wrapped in a lush, umami-rich sauce.
These achaari chicken bites combine juicy chicken thigh meat with the tangy, spicy, salty flavors of Indian mango pickle to serve up some of the best fried chicken I’ve ever had. Dish them up with oven-fresh naan, finely sliced red onion, and a shower of cilantro.
This recipe channels the traditional flavors of the Peruvian anticuchos de corazon. The accompanying skewers feature zucchini, tomatoes, shallots, and queso de frier to create an array of flavors ranging from tangy to sweet to buttery, unified and brightened up by the acidity of lemon juice.
I always keen a few containers of bone broth around, both in my fridge and in my freezer. In this post, I want to dip a little further into the science of bone broth-making, offering some morsels of history along the way.
Cucumbers are in season and it’s the perfect time to experiment with recipes for pickling. These pickles are inspired by flavors from around the globe, from India to New England, Poland to Africa.
There are three key elements to the best gumbo–an excellent seafood stock, a solid brick roux, and quality ingredients to go into it–fresh seafood when possible, okra in season, and so on. While you may sometimes have to make due with frozen or out-of-season ingredients, the stock, roux, and giving the gumbo the time it needs to develop flavor will still always give you incredible results.
This is a simple stir fry but is full of flavor, with salty and umami-rich sauce lightly coating tender steak and zucchini. I highly recommend this easy, satisfying weeknight dinner.
