Crispy Fried Pig’s Ears with Arugula and Capers

These deep-fried pig’s ears are salty, tender yet crispy, and super indulgent; the lemon vinaigrette arugula salad brings a fresh and acid element to the dish that balances the decadence of the pig’s ears.

Sichuan Twice-Cooked Pork (or Tripe)

While this recipe is amazing with pork belly—spicy, nuanced, with tender meat and vegetables—and my new favorite way to eat it is with tripe. Regardless of the protein you choose, this makes for a fabulous and authentic taste of Sichuan.

Jjukumi Gui (Korean Barbecued Octopus)

Jjukumi Gui (Korean barbecued octopus) is an enticing bite of Korea, and yet oddly familiar in the way that it checks all the boxes of successful Western barbecue: a little sweet, a little spicy, a little tangy, a little smoky.

Chicken Cheese Katsu

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.

Lion’s Mane and Crab Pasta with Asparagus, Parmesan, and Lemon

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

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.

Shrimp and Asparagus Stir Fry

This stir-fry comes together fast and yields juicy shrimp and snappy bites of asparagus wrapped in a lush, umami-rich sauce.
