Lemony Asparagus Pasta

Lemony Asparagus Pasta

This revivifying asparagus pasta dish from L.A.-based pastaiolo and restaurateur Evan Funke tastes like Italian springtime. It’s bright from both lemon juice and zest, rich from an emulsion of Parmesan cheese, and fresh from the addition of big leaves of fresh basil. Chef-owner of Felix Trattoria, among other establishments, Funke believes pasta sauces should celebrate […]

Basque Burnt Cheesecake

Basque Burnt Cheesecake

Burnt Basque cheesecake is the antithesis of American-style or New York cheesecakes. It wants to cook at a high temperature without the protection of a water bath. It wants to get browned and crack, to soufflé high and then deflate. It eschews a crust, instead forming its own where heat and surface area meet. In […]

Easy Noodle Kugel

Easy Noodle Kugel

Like many iconic Jewish dishes, noodle kugel recipes invite heated debates: Sweet noodle kugel or savory?! Naked or topped with cornflakes? Wide noodles or extra-wide noodles?

Negroni

Negroni

A classic negroni is the original 1:1:1 cocktail (equal parts gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari). “But here’s the problem,” argues former BA editor Julia Kramer, “Equal-parts cocktails don’t always taste so good—palates have evolved since these ratios were codified.” The team at Chiltern Firehouse in London, who created this variation on that classic cocktail recipe, […]

Ginger Fried Rice

Ginger Fried Rice

Made with just a few ingredients, this fried rice is highly aromatic thanks to a heavy dose of fresh ginger. In traditional Chinese medicine, ginger is a key ingredient in postpartum care and is believed to help balance the body’s yin and yang (cold and heat), restoring the heat lost during childbirth. More widely, ginger […]

Pork Tenderloin With Jam-and-Mustard Glaze

Pork Tenderloin With Jam-and-Mustard Glaze

Jam and Dijon mustard is an IYKYK kind of situation. While the duo may seem an unlikely pair, fated to meet only when stored next to each other in the fridge, they actually belong together as the building blocks of a delightfully tangy sauce. Consider this: You get sweetness and body from the jam and […]

Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi

This shrimp scampi recipe makes for an ideal weeknight dinner: It comes together quickly with just a handful of ingredients, many of which you may already have in the house. The key, perhaps unsurprisingly, is good shrimp. Unless you have access to a fishmonger, frozen wild-caught or frozen sustainably farmed shrimp are likely to be […]
