Spacca Napoli's Jonathan Goldsmith on Italian Culture and the Power of Pizza

Lance Roberts 10 comments

Over the last year, we've spent a whole lot of time speaking to Jonathan Goldsmith, of Chicago's Spacca Napoli, about his amazing journey from clinical social worker to world-class pie man. Among other things, we discussed the chance encounter on a plane that changed the course of his life, the legendary pizzaioli he's studied and befriended in Naples, and the power of food to connect people. But mostly? We just talked about pie. More

Sunday Supper: Scamorza-Loaded Pork Pizzaiola

Sunday Supper Jennifer Olvera 2 comments

What's better than pizza? Not much, but pizzaiola, a Neapolitan dish of meat cooked pizza-style, is a strong contender. Often made with steak, this indulgent version features thinly pounded pork-tenderloin medallions tied around a scamorza-cheese filling. The bundles are seared, then simmered in a rich red-wine tomato sauce. A final topping of cheese on each piece of pork and a trip under the broiler to get it browned and bubbling is the killer last step. It's delicious served on pasta. More

Roast Chicken With Asparagus Panzanella (Or, the Secret to Panzanella Without Tomatoes)

Daniel Gritzer 4 comments

Making panzanella— the classic Tuscan tomato-and-bread salad—without tomatoes is tricky, because you need all those juices to soften the stale bread. The trick is to find other ways to make the dish as flavor-packed and moist as possible. Here's our method with asparagus, cucumbers, and red onions, served alongside roast chicken. More

Grilled Trevisano or Radicchio With Gorgonzola, Olive Oil, and Saba

Serious Eats J. Kenji López-Alt 1 comment

Radicchio, a hearty bitter lettuce, becomes remarkably sweet and succulent when charred over a live fire. Served with a drizzle of good olive oil and saba—a sweet wine-based condiment—along with a sprinkle of gorgonzola cheese, it's the best vegetable you've never grilled. More

Why You Should Be Making Seared Skirt Steak With Blistered Cherry Tomatoes and Polenta

J. Kenji López-Alt 20 comments

My wife does not love polenta. This puts a certain strain on our marriage. There is, of course, nothing not to love about polenta, especially when it's buttery, cheesy, creamy, and covered in a flavorful sauce. I know this, and I think she secretly knows this. Still, when I cook polenta, I like to hedge my bets by not putting too much time or effort into it. This quick polenta with skirt steak and tomatoes is about as easy as a meaty polenta dish can get.

Seared Skirt Steak With Blistered Cherry Tomatoes and Polenta

Serious Eats J. Kenji López-Alt 7 comments

Polenta is the kind of stuff that's just begging for a flavorful sauce to be spooned into it. But pan-seared steak doesn't really provide much sauce of its own. The solution: Toss some juicy cherry tomatoes and chilies into the skillet as the steak finishes cooking. Their natural juices pick up the flavorful pan drippings and—with just a touch of olive oil—emulsify into a rich, flavor-packed pan sauce. More

Spaghetti Squash-Pesto Crostini With Prosciutto

Serious Eats Lauren Rothman Post a comment

Spaghetti squash is fun, but It's never quite hearty enough to satisfy. Here, we toss it with a rich parsley pesto, pair it with meaty prosciutto and serve it on top of toasted bread for a dish that's light enough to serve as an hors d'oeuvres, but hearty enough to eat as a light lunch. More

Chinese-American Mashup: Silken Tofu With Spicy Sausage

Shao Z. 2 comments

There are many homey Chinese recipes based on simply steaming silken-style tofu and topping it with a simple sauce of sautéd meat with a light gravy. I wondered what would happen if I replaced that meat with some spicy Italian-style sausage from my local American supermarket. It works shockingly well. Here's how I make it. More
