This week we're looking ahead, as in make-ahead sweets. Whether it's an icebox cake that tastes better after sitting overnight or cookies that develop flavor a few days in, shoot us a photo of your best make-ahead sweet (along with a link to the recipe!) and we'll include it in this week's roundup.
The FDA considers regulating caffeine sale and consumption, a Supreme Court decision unanimously favors Monsanto, and more in this week's food policy update.
Frankly, I'd rather not tell you about this wine. I actually don't want you—or anyone—to know about it because I am fearful that then the prices will inevitably go up and the availability will go down, and I'll be left (poor) with wicked withdrawal symptoms and resentment.
The Frenchafornian cafe chain La Boulange was recently bought by Starbucks for 100 million dollars, and their pastries will be served in Starbucks nationwide. A look at one of their newest pastries, a Berry Kougin Amann (potentially coming to a Starbucks near you.)
The ingredient list for Matt and Ted Lee's cheese spread reads almost like a 2nd grader's cafeteria prank. Cheese, ketchup, worcestershire, horseradish, Tabasco, and beer—how could that taste good? Yet this recipe, from their new cookbook The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen, is one of those magical recipes that just works. The balance of tart, spicy, sweet, and malty is totally on point, making for a dip so multilayered that it's impossible to stop eating.
As a cook with strong South Carolina heritage, I was immediately drawn to Matt and Ted Lee's new cookbook, The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen. Their book, much like the cuisine that it covers, has an elegant simplicity and a definitive sense of place. When reading their recipes, I could almost hear my grand-relatives speaking to me in their long, soft Southern drawl; it transported me back to hot summertime family reunions on James Island.
The winning recipe for 7 Train Caramelized Green Curry Burgers features beef patties mixed with pancetta fat and basted in green curry glaze, crispy watercress salad, and fried pancetta, all sandwiched between toasted bun halves that get spread with minted basil aioli and dipped in chopped roasted cashews.
Pichet Ong's cookie starts off with a sweet base and adds an even sweeter vanilla custard to the middle—and it works.
An endless sprawl of cheeses and olives, asparagus and charcuterie; the Wednesday morning market in Saint-Rémy is the serene Provençal spread of your dreams. No writer has made it through southern France without pausing to wax poetic about the bustling, colorful stands that make up the outdoor shopping experience in this part of the world. Covering most of the town—which, with a population of only 10,000 people, isn't quite as massive as it sounds—the market at Saint-Rémy is well-known as one of the region's best.
As a Bushwick resident, it's exciting to find any new restaurant in the neighborhood, let alone one that serves a burger as meticulously crafted as Fritzl's. At only $8 ($9 with cheese), it's a bargain. Patties are close to six 6 ounces; a combination of chuck and cheek, which chef Dan Ross-Leutwyler estimates to be about 75/25 meat to fat. Ross-Leutwyler grinds it himself, throwing slightly more chuck in the mix.
I go a bit nuts every spring and summer when fresh produce is at its best. I end up buying things willy nilly, without much thought as to how I'm going to prepare, much less eat, all of it myself. After several valiant dinner parties and late night asparagus binges, I still find myself with far too much produce to even consider finishing everything before it starts to lose quality.
When it comes to brisket, I've found that Queens barbecue falls behind its Manhattan and Brooklyn colleagues. But if my sample from the new Alchemy, Texas in Jackson Heights is an indication of future success, the scales are starting to level out.
At Balena, the menu is meant for sharing. It can be nearly impossible to decide what to order when everything looks so delicious, so the more people you're dining with, the better.
When she's not being honored for desserts like the grilled vanilla bean panna cotta with satsuma sorbet and pistachio brittle at La Petite Grocery, pastry chef Bronwen Wyatt is checking out the sweets in the rest of New Orleans. From pecan pie griddled on a flattop to modern sno balls, check out all her favorites.
This week, we're chatting about two group dinner questions: a birthday party with guests who are vegan or gluten-free, and a book club dinner with guests of variously adventurous tastes.
When it comes to convenient pantry staples to have on hand for a quick meal, a can of good Thai curry paste ranks up there with bacon and kimchi. Grab a can of coconut milk and whatever happens to be in the fridge, and twenty minutes later you have a stunningly spicy dinner waiting for you.
Grilling season is officially upon us, and we're celebrating with beer. But while you're stocking up on sausages, ribs, chicken thighs, and steaks, you might want to pick up some beers that will be particularly well suited for your grilled feast. Our beer experts are on hand to suggest a brew that will make everything taste better together.

It's a beautiful day for another round of My Pie Monday! Come on through for a look at this week's collection of brilliant homemade pizzas.
It's insane that we haven't yet written about the Wild Boar Sloppy Joe at Longman & Eagle. How could we have skipped its most popular and well known offering?
