It’s funny the things that inspire us to cook dinner. I was recently scrolling through TikTok (as one does these days) when a video popped up ofEmeril Lagasse制作roux。我长期以来一直对制作真正的roux的过程感到好奇;从我读过的所有内容来看,这是一个漫长的过程 - 您必须站在那儿,就像您要制作意大利调味饭一样,只有二十分钟,最多可能需要一个小时。但是,将面粉搅拌成脂肪并慢慢烘烤的过程为您的汤,炖肉或浓汤创造了一个基础,或者在这种情况下,鸡肉酱不仅可以增强味道,而且会增强味道,而且使事物变厚成丰富而decade废的肉汁。

Blow-You-A-Whey Pancakes with Homemade Labneh

whey pancakes

Little Miss Muffet can keep her curds: I’m stealing her whey. Especially to make these blow-you-a-whey pancakes with homemade labneh which (spoiler alert!) are easily some of the best pancakes that I’ve ever made and/or eaten in my life.

The secret is the milky white substance that collects in the bowl underneath the sieve when you strain yogurt overnight in the fridge. If you’ve never done this, you’ve never made labneh, which is a real shame because labneh is like yogurt taken to the power of eleven. It’s thick and creamy and works as a dip, a spread, even on its own as a base for fruit and granola. But we’re not here to talk about the labneh, we’re here to talk about the whey!

Baked Chicken Thighs with Butter and Onions


Keep your ferments, your sous vide pork chops, your deconstructed French Onion Soup; when it comes to dishes that I’m interested in, I’d much rather eat the favorite thing that you ate in childhood — especially if it’s something that your mother made for you with love. That’s the case with Aaron Hutcherson’s baked chicken thighs with butter and onions. It’s a deceptively simple dish that his mother made with a homemade spice mix, bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, and just enough butter to give everything some pizazz. It’s a weeknight dinner that feels good enough for the weekend.

Keema Pau

Have you ever been in a cooking rut? Sometimes I literally have no idea what to make for dinner even though I have a cookbook shelf overflowing with books and I read about food on the internet for 85% of my day.

幸运的是,我开始了this new podcastand my guests send me recipes to make that I would never think of making on my own. Case in point: this Keema Pau which was suggested to me by我的客人本周,卡兰·索尼(Karan Soni),您可能从Deadpoolmovies or the show奇迹工人。Karan and his partner Roshan came over for dinner and noticed theDishoomcookbook on my shelf and Karan lit up: he cooked his way through it during the pandemic and absolutely loved the food that he made. So when I asked him to send me a recipe for the pod, he referred me to page 109, which has the recipe for Keema Pau.

Rosemary Dijon Rack of Lamb with Crispy Potatoes

rack of lamb

Would you believe that I’ve cookedlamb necks,羔羊肩膀,lamb legs,但是从来没有那种最著名的羊肉准备……经典的羊肉架?

The reason’s actually pretty simple: rack of lamb is expensive. And as confident as I am as a meat cook, I’m always scared that if I splurge on something as decadent as a rack of lamb, I’m going to screw it up. And meat is hard to fix once you overcook it. Thankfully, I didn’t have to worry with this particular rack because it was a gift! Well, I received a gift certificate for $100 for an online butcher and I chose one 1 1/2 pound rack of lamb that, with shipping, worked out to the full $100. (I know, that’s insane, but now you know why I’ve avoided cooking lamb racks for so long.)

Claire Saffitz’s Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake

Bundt cakes often look better than they taste. That’s because, at the end of the day, you’re dumping a bunch of cake batter into a big heavy mold that needs to cook for a while to have stability, but also (very often) dries the cake out in the process. So how do you make a big, impressive-looking bundt cake that actually tastes good? You soak it as soon as it comes out of the oven. I’ve seen recipes for lemon cakes where you cook sugar with lemon juice just until the sugar dissolves to make a lemon syrup and then pour that over the cake (see:The Barefoot Contessa);但是我从未见过将生柠檬汁和糖和橄榄油混合在一起的地方,然后将其倒在蛋糕上。直到我在她的新食谱中遇到Claire Saffitz的Meyer Lemon Bundt蛋糕甜点是什么?

Dirty Chai Earthquake Cookies

我对2000年代初与父母一起在威尼斯有生动的回忆(已记录这里)当我和兄弟决定在晚餐后喝浓缩咖啡来吓your母亲。实际上,我们一直是一个咖啡馆家庭的家庭,但咖啡一直是Decaf。直到今天,如果我的父母在一顿大餐之后享用热饮料,他们仍然会订购Decaf。但是在意大利,晚餐后喝浓缩咖啡是一种传统,并引用特维(Tevye)的“传统!”因此,我们喝了浓缩咖啡,据我所知,我们仍然睡着了,一切都很好。但是当我做到Susan Spungen’s Dirty Chai Earthquake Cookiesfor a dinner party last week.
