Cracklin' Cornbread From 'Heritage'

Chef Sean Brock makes his no-flour-no-sugar cornbread with Anson Mills Antebellum Coarse Yellow Cornmeal, buttermilk for tang, and a single egg, leaving it light and corny. He also adds crisp crumbles of bacon (preferably Benton's) to the batter, as well as some of the bacon grease, to give the bread a vague and pleasant smokiness and decidedly savory edge. It's a very classic cornbread that would be as at home with a country supper as gracing the table at Husk. More

Cauliflower Cake From 'Plenty More'

This savory cake from Yotam Ottolenghi's newest cookbook, Plenty More, is as beautiful as it is unusual: cauliflower florets are suspended in a golden cake with green flecks of basil and a load of parmesan cheese, with an orbit of onion rings on top and crunchy, aromatic seeds gilding the edges. And, as with most of Ottolenghi's out-of-the-box creations, it's just delicious. More

Zucchini "Baba Ghanoush" From 'Plenty More'

As Yotam Ottolenghi says in the introduction to this recipe from his new cookbook, Plenty More, this is only vaguely reminiscent of baba ghanoush. Garlicky broiled zucchini is topped with a funky and captivating custard sauce made with goat's milk yogurt and Roquefort cheese. Finally, toasted pine nuts and a sprinkle of za'ata finishes off this "volcanic eruption" (his words) of a spread. More
