Serious Eats Caroline Russock 14 comments

David Chang of New York's Momofuku has proved that pretty much anything is delicious when served inside a steamed bun with sliced cucumbers, hoisin, and Sriracha. At Momofuku, the buns are stuffed with pork belly (the classic), shrimp, or shiitake mushrooms. These Chinese Roast Chicken Buns with Scallions and Spicy Hoisin Sauce from Mindy Fox's A Bird in the Oven and Then Some are obviously inspired by the Momofuku buns, but are filled with slices of smokey Tea-Brined Roast Chicken.

Cook the Book: Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes with Coarse Pepper and Wispy Scallions

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 9 comments

It's a simplified mash made with only a few ingredients—creamy yellow Yukon Golds, sea salt, cracked pepper, a few tablespoons of good olive oil, and scallion slivers. Unlike mashed potatoes that are loaded up with cream and butter, these let the sweetness of the potatoes and olive oil shine through. But even without the dairy, they're creamy with little bites of spicy peppercorns and oniony scallions scattered throughout. And when the juices from the chicken run into the potatoes? Well, it doesn't really any better. More

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 2 comments

This recipe for Roast Chicken in Porchettata or "chicken in the style of porchetta" from Mindy Fox's A Bird in the Oven and Then Some was inspired by chef Sara Jenkins, proprietor of New York's Porchetta, a restaurant specializing in what else? Porchetta. It's pretty genius—a perfectly roasted chicken meets the gorgeous Italian herbs that go into the roast pork dish. More
