Kenji got a huge 32-pound rib roast from Pat LaFrieda this week for a photoshoot with Nick Solares for a special in-house edition of his Steakcraft column.

What do you do when you have to trim off six inches of prime-grade rib steak to fit the roast in your fridge? Why, you cook it up and serve it fresh for lunch, of course. Here Kenji finishes off the steak in a cast iron skillet with a blowtorch for optimal crust and char development.

We're on a mission to find the best roast pork bun in Chinatown. Our preliminary tasting was rather disappointing, though.

Some goodies we picked up from various bakeries in Chinatown. We had to try them for research purposes. Yuuuup.
