ABC Cocina: Great Seasonal Latin, If You Can Stand the Wait

New York J. Kenji López-Alt 5 comments

Like its neighboring restaurant ABC Kitchen—also a Jean-Georges/Chef Dan Kluger tag-team—the menu is eclectic but seasonally based, simple to read, but interesting in its details. Though I've spotted Jean-Georges and Dan Kluger in the kitchen on a few occasions, the ship is helmed day-to-day by chef de cuisine Ian Coogan. Every single dish sounds like something you want to eat (and for the most part, is). More

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 8 comments

Over the past few months it's become pretty clear that finding out how chefs roast their chickens is high on our lists. So when we came across Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Crisp Savory Roast Chicken in his latest cookbook, Home Cooking with Jean-Georges, of course we had to share it with all of you. More

Carrot and Avocado Salad with Crunchy Seeds

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 2 comments

This salad is essentially two recipes in one: the cumin roasted carrots and the salad. On their own the carrots are exciting; eoasting brings out their sweetness but the mashed cumin, chile, garlic and thyme paste that they're roasted in brings out a level of worldliness not often seen in a carroty side.

Adapted from Home Cooking with Jean-Georges, these long braised shanks balance meaty savoriness with a bright acidity from lemongrass, champagne vinegar, chiles, Asian pears, and Gewürztraminer, taking them worlds away from your usual cold weather braise. More

Swiss Chard Braised in Shiitake Butter

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 3 comments

When it comes to winter greens (we're looking at you, kale, chard, and collards), it's easy to fall back on the familiar: garlic and olive oil or bacon and onions. A few short minutes in the sauté pan and those combos make for quick, easy sides that never fail to satisfy and fill in that "we should really be eating more greens" void. But after so many years of going the same route with greens, I think it's about time to try something new. This plate of Swiss Chard Braised in Shiitake Butter from Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Home Cooking with Jean-Georges is my new go-to greens recipe. More

Crab Toasts with Sriracha Mayonnaise

When we visited Jean-Georges Vongerichten's ABC Kitchen back in the spring of 2010 Ed was smitten with the kitchen's toasts. The simple little bites of crusty bread are topped with ramps, local goat cheese, and on one of our favorites, peekytoe crab. More

We'll be cooking from it all week! More

Chris Hansen 2 comments

During the filming of PBS's The Kimchi Chronicles, renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and his wife, Marja, visited one of the several O-Il Jang (5 Day Market) on Jeju-do, the provincial island off of the southern coast of the Korean peninsula.

ABC Kitchen: Team Jean-Georges Goes Local

New York Ed Levine 5 comments

How many Jean-Georges Vongerichtens are there? In this age of downsizing and retrenchment, he has managed to open not one, but two serious restaurants in New York in the last two months. What we wanted to know: Can a world-class chef open this many restaurants and have them all be a reflection of his philosophy and his culinary voice? More

This is Jean-Georges Vongerichten, at his new restaurant ABC Kitchen. And that thing in his hands? A cinnamon stick. A very large Indonesian cinnamon stick. Probably enough to fulfill this nation's cinnamon toast needs for the next year or so. More

Jean-Georges Will Open 30 to 50 Restaurants at Starwood Hotels

Emily Koh 4 comments

jeangeorges.blogspot.com Jean-Georges Vongerichten has long been a heavyweight in the culinary world, but now he's out to globally conquer the greater hospitality industry. The Michelin-starred chef has signed a deal with Starwood Hotels to open between 30 and 50 Jean-Georges-branded hotel restaurants within five years, with ten locations at Starwood brands opening by the end of this year. The additions will not be straight-up copies of current JGV restaurants, and menus will change quarterly. Top chefs partnering with luxury hotels is not new. Gordon Ramsay's not just in London but on both coasts of the U.S., and Masaharu Morimoto and Alfred Portale have their sights set on Florida. Though Vegas has long been a goldmine for celebrity chefs squeezing in... More

I’ve heard about chicken wrapped in parchment paper, and even of chicken wrapped in foil. But the cooking of what is essentially chicken in a bag, had always (in my humble experience) taken place in the oven. I’ve never heard... More
