Dinner Tonight: Broiled Tofu with Miso Glaze and Asparagus

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger 7 comments

Try as I might, I will never tire of in-season asparagus. But I do try to switch things up to make sure things stay interesting in the kitchen. One of my favorite variations is to pair the green stalks with white miso. More

Ed's Reads: Failed Chang-Chipotle Ramen Collaboration Goes To Court

Ed Levine 5 comments

A peek at what our founder and benevolent overlord is reading today: a nasty culinary intellectual property dispute between Momofuku's David Chang and Chipotle's Steve Ells. More

Watch Clips from New PBS Show 'Mind of a Chef' with David Chang

Erin Zimmer 8 comments

PBS's new series The Mind of a Chef stars David Chang along with the voice of Anthony Bourdain (he's the narrator and executive producer). It's part cooking show, part travel show, part history show, part whatever Chang and Bourdain feel like eating and talking about show. Last week, on the very first episode, it was ramen. Tonight it'll be fish sauce, kimchi, and raw scallops. Watch these preview clips. More

Duck Lunch at Momofuku Ssäm Bar

New York Carey Jones 28 comments

Here's our CliffsNotes version of Momofuku Ssäm Bar's new duck lunch: Go. Bring a friend. Order the duck bun and the rotisserie duck over rice, with scallion pancakes, and share those two plates. If you're of hearty appetite, add a side of broccoli (if you're down with fishy-creamy dressing; we are) or potatoes (if you like your potatoes soaked in rotisserie drippings; we do). You will leave full of duck and very happy. There's more to say, of course; but really. Duck bun. Rotisserie duck. Remember those two things. More

Is $5 Too Much To Pay For a Coke?

J. Kenji López-Alt 128 comments

I'm even fine with paying $5 or more for a soft drink at a super fancy restaurant where it's served to me in a real glass with ice by a professional waiter or bartender. But $5 for a Coke that I had to walk up to a counter to pick up myself, that I had to pay for immediately, that was served in a glass bottle with no cup, no ice, and not even a straw? Am I being unreasonable? More

Dinner Tonight: Spicy Noodles with Tofu (Dou Hua Mian)

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 6 comments

I was in the mood for some Chinese noodles, and nothing was going to stop me. This recipe from Fuchsia Dunlop's Land of Plenty combines sesame paste (tahini works too), chili oil, two kinds of soy sauce, and sesame oil to create a shockingly quick and filling meal. To balance out the fiercely spicy dish, I added quick-pickled carrots using David Chang's approach from the Momofuku cookbook. More

Dinner Tonight: Roasted Rice Cake

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 7 comments

I've been infatuated with Korean cuisine for years now but never really understood rice cakes. They always seemed so mushy, bland, and covered in sweet sauce. But a recent midnight snack at a Korean bar changed everything. Instead of boiled, these were grilled, so they had that crackly outer layer, which gave way to a tender and succulent inside. They were also tossed with this fiery red sauce, which forced you to keep a drink close at hand. More

Celebrating Japanese Food at the CIA's Worlds of Flavor Conference in Napa

Jay Friedman 4 comments

The 39 Japanese chefs who came to the Culinary Institute of America's Napa Valley campus joined other culinary experts to sell their love of Japanese food. Panelists included Ruth Reichl, Harold McGee, David Chang, Iron Chef Morimoto, and many Japanese culinary legends. Food is clearly serious business in Japan, particularly seafood. We learned that while Japan is smaller than California, due to its coastal jaggedness, it has fifty percent more coastline the entire United States. More

Beef 7 Ways at Ma Peche: The Review

New York Ed Levine 13 comments

As a regular indulgence, beef seven ways would surely shorten your life. But as a once-a-year feast, I can think of few better ways for serious beef eaters to get a serious cow fix. It represents the best of chef Tien Ho's cooking and Momofuku mastermind David Chang's influence—brilliant in conception and in execution, something that Chang's restaurants sometimes aren't in tandem.

Cook the Book: Cherry Tomato and Tofu Salad

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 7 comments

This Cherry Tomato and Tofu Salad was created by Momofuku chef David Chang for Alice Waters' In The Green Kitchen project. It's a riff on the classic caprese salad but with an Asian twist. The mozzarella gets replaced with slices of tofu, the dressing is a vinaigrette with soy sauce and sesame oil, and instead of basil, Chang subs in shiso leaves for an herbal menthol kick. More

Cook the Book: Raw Scallops with Green Apple and Dashi

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 1 comment

Green apples, raw scallops, poppy seeds, and dashi might seem like unlikely partners but when the elements come together the flavors make prefect sense. The sweet scallops play off of the dashi's umami and the apples lend a bit of tart sweetness and crunch. More

The Momofuku Cookbook's Kimchi Stew with Rice Cakes

Serious Eats Chichi Wang 15 comments

This recipe for Kimchi Stew with Rice Cakes from the Momofuku cookbook is addictively good. David Chang uses two-week old kimchi (fresh and crisp with a not-too-sour taste), any type of broth (he suggests pork; no big surprise given Momofuku's obsession with pork), and rice cakes made with glutinous rice.
