Pickled Japanese Turnips with Shiso from 'Little Jars, Big Flavors'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 2 comments

Pickles are usually the easiest thing to put up, and the vinegar-ed recipes in Southern Living's Little Jars, Big Flavors, fall in line. Most of the pickles are simple, familiar choices like dills, bread and butters, and pickled green beans. This pickled turnip with shiso, however, stood out from the rest. Shiso is not ordinarily seen in American pickle recipes, especially from the dill- and mustard-focused South. Still, the lemony leaf makes plenty of sense in these Japanese-esque white wedges. More

Beet Blinis with Salmon Marinated in Star Anise Syrup from 'Home Made Winter'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 1 comment

Blinis make for an excellent nibble before dinner; the yeasty mini pancakes can cradle just about anything from cheeses to jams to luxe caviar. A sliver of smoked salmon and a dollop of mascarpone cheese may be at the very top of that list. Add roasted beets, star anise, and pomegranate seeds as Yvette van Boven does in Home Made Winter, and you'll have a gem of a dish on your table. More

Gammy Brown's Deviled Ham from 'The Great Meat Cookbook'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 1 comment

In The Great Meat Cookbook, Bruce Aidells presents a perfect solution to your porky holiday leftovers: Deviled Ham (in this case, courtesy of his wife's Gammy Brown). For the uninitiated, deviled ham is a chilled mayo-rich salad akin to its chicken and egg brethren. Sure it's a bit retro, but there's nothing to say that retro can't taste good. More

Roasted Tomato Salsa

Serious Eats Joshua Bousel 21 comments

Roasting a set of standard salsa ingredients first may add some time to an otherwise quick process, but it's all for good as the end result retains a freshness while gaining a tomato intensity, some sweetness, and a more mild heat the melds seamlessly throughout. More

April Bloomfield's Devils on Horseback

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 5 comments

This week we're going to be sharing what we consider to be April Bloomfield's greatest hits, many taken straight from the menu at The Spotted Pig. At The Spotted Pig, Bloomfield does drinking snacks right, and these Devils on Horseback are the ideal way to soak up whatever you're sipping. Bacon wrapped prunes would be wonderful on their own but in typical Bloomfield fashion, she takes it a step further by plumping the prunes in tea and Armagnac, and stuffing them with tiny bits of tender poached pear. These are the kind of snacks that go fast, doubling the recipe might be a good plan. More

April Bloomfield's Deviled Eggs

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 2 comments

It would be a tragedy to go to April Bloomfield's The Spotted Pig and not order at least one round of her exemplary Deviled Eggs. They're just too good not to try, at least once. The thing is, they're not all that far off from the basic recipe, mayo, mustard and paprika are all there, but Bloomfield's added a few tweaks that round out the flavor, giving them an eggy, tangy richness that makes them so irresistible.

Shrimp Curry Butter Canapés        

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 2 comments

If one were to host a Mad Men themed get together chances are it would be a cocktail party rather than a sit down affair. And along with all of those Old Fashioned, gimlets, and martinis it's likely that instead of chips and dips or a cheese plate, snacks would come in the form of canapés. The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook is a wonderful source for all sorts of cocktail snacks of yore including these Shrimp Curry Butter Canapés. More
