Make This Now: Savory French Toast With Garlic and Parmesan

[Photographs: J. Kenji Lopez-Alt] A couple weeks ago when we were driving through Austin, we stayed with a friend who said that his go-to weekday breakfast is savory French toast. Wait, what? I asked him. That was a situation that would be quickly remedied. Part garlic bread, part French toast, I start by whisking together eggs and mill with my basic flavorings: parsley, garlic, and Parmesan, along with a pinch of red pepper flakes.

Best Hummus. Croquetas de Setas (Mushroom Croquettes) During our trip to Spain last fall we gorged ourselves on researched many different types of tapas.

Croquetas de Setas (Mushroom Croquettes)

One very popular kind of tapas that you see everywhere is croquettes with various fillings. They are crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside and a great way to finish leftovers: simply mix with some béchamel (white sauce), allow to cool, shape into balls, bread, and deep fry. In Spanish bars they are usually warmed up in a microwave before serving, but of course they are even better when they are freshly fried and still crispy. They will be even more crispy if you use coarse breadcrumbs for the outer layer. You can easily make croquettes that are better than those of most bars in Spain by using more of the ‘expensive’ ingredient in the filling. Deep fried foods have a bad reputation that is not justified if you use fresh oil and control the temperature.

Ingredients For 16 pieces 300 grams (.66 lb) fresh mushrooms of your choice, chopped 3 Tbsp butter 3 Tbsp olive oil 9 Tbsp flour. Savory Korean Pancake Recipe. A traditional Korean street food, fermented mung bean pancakes are typically served with a seasoned soy sauce for dipping.

Savory Korean Pancake Recipe

Chef Sohui Kim from The Good Fork in Brooklyn treats them like blinis and tops them with shiso leaves and bright-tasting, pretty trout roe. Kim encourages experimentation—use as much or little kimchi and juice as you like, and leave the fermentation time as long or short as you like, “but I like the funk that develops after 3-4 days,” she says. She also notes that, in addition to being gluten-free, the batter can be made vegan if you use vegetarian kimchee. This recipe is adapted from The Good Fork Cookbook. Sweet and Tangy Hummus Recipe. Cauliflower Melts recipe. Ruth Reichl’s Grilled Cheese is Genius, and Completely Out of Control. Ruth Reichl has been publicly aligning herself with grilled cheese for a long time.

Ruth Reichl’s Grilled Cheese is Genius, and Completely Out of Control

And we really should have paid attention sooner. Even before her days at the helm of Gourmet were over, in 2009 she was endorsing slivers of her grilled cheese as a party appetizer on PBS’s A Moveable Feast. Then in 2010, she wrote a definitive guide with some kooky ideas for since-departed Gilt Taste. Evidence of both of these versions has all but disappeared from the internet, but—lucky for us—she finally immortalized her recipe in her latest book, My Kitchen Year. If you read any reviews of the book last year, you’ve probably heard about her signature sandwich (or even watched her make it in Toronto)—it's called "The Diva of Grilled Cheese" and it’s the recipe everyone seems to gravitate toward, for good reason.

This grilled cheese is genius, and also completely out of control. Gougères gorgonzola/noix - C secrets gourmands. De délicieuses gougères délicatement parfumées (bizarrement le gorgonzola se sent peu, à tester la prochaine fois avec du roquefort!)

Avec un léger croquant apporté par la noix. Zahav's Hummus Recipe is Genius—and the Creamiest Homemade Hummus. There's been a whole lot of talk about Zahav's hummus lately—ascribing to it the texture of buttercream, the phrase revelatory heights, and being both the creamiest and the dreamiest.

Zahav's Hummus Recipe is Genius—and the Creamiest Homemade Hummus

Bon Appétit named it their 2015 dish of the year. In Phyllis Grant's recent Piglet judgement, she wrote that the first chapter alone, with its seven types of hummus, should win a James Beard Award. But in all of these heaps of accolades, no one has said boo about the craziest and most genius part. Wait till you see it! The genius of this hummus is credited to all sorts of smart maneuvers in Chef Michael Solomonov's process: soaking the chickpeas in baking soda to raise the pH and soften their skins, his respect for the finest tahini to drive the flavor (he likes Soom Foods), intentionally overcooking the chickpeas until they're just shy of total mush, then whipping them longer than you think you should, till the hummus practically floats.

Makes about 4 cups. What's Cookin, Chicago?: Spanakopita Bites. Buttery, flaky phyllo appetizers are especially popular in my family.

What's Cookin, Chicago?: Spanakopita Bites

I guess I can't blame them since who can resist buttery, flaky phyllo dough anyway?! My mother in law requested these Spanakopita Bites as an appetizer for the birthday party she was throwing for her husband. They were a hit with no leftovers, which is no surprise. How to make the perfect kale crisps. If, 10 years ago, you had asked food writers to predict the hippest ingredients of the decade, I doubt kale, one of our most ancient vegetables, would have featured on many lists.

How to make the perfect kale crisps

Coarse and chewy, but helpfully hardy, it was a staple of the peasant diet throughout Europe, and as such was hastily abandoned as soon as something better came along. Indeed, so unfashionable was it until recently that the cultivated variety doesn’t even get a mention in Jane Grigson’s excellent Vegetable Book. Now? Well, now we can’t move for Keep Calm and Eat Kale phone cases and celebrity selfies in kale-branded sweatshirts. How it happened is a mystery – much as I like the stuff, its thick stems and bitter, faintly ammoniac flavour make it an unlikely star. At the risk of destroying a few dreams, I have to tell you that these have little in common with their potato-based counterpart.

Before Scott and I were married, our officiant asked us to read The Five Love Languages.

It’s a great read, a book I highly recommend to anyone who is engaged or in a long term relationship. We learned a lot about how to communicate and make each other feel loved, two skills that are kinda important in marriage. However, I distinctly remember being disappointed when I realized that my love language, food, was not included. Cooking delicious and nourishing food is one way I communicate love to the people I care about most.

Food is also how I show love to myself. It breaks my heart to know how many people are afraid to love food. Food52. Cooking is more fun with friends.

After all, navigating the minefield of office parties and in-laws and dinner parties and cookie swaps (when you’d rather be on the couch with Netflix and a pint of ice cream) requires a bit of comfort food (not to mention a stiff drink, but that’s another recipe for another time). Still, if you’re entertaining, you can’t totally slack off. You just need to marry your need for fatty comforting carbs with something dressy enough to serve in polite company.

This has to be one of the worst represented dishes on the Chinese takeaway menu. Too often you open your container to reveal greasy-spoon-style fried bread with a hint of prawn spread over the top, all topped with a concrete layer of sesame seeds. We seem to eat the toasts out of habit and a craving for that omni-flavoured oil they are fried (destroyed) in.

Not only are these prawn toasts far healthier, they are also so simple, yet so delicious, that you will find yourself wondering why you ever dialled the takeaway’s number.
