Bobby Flay's Skate Amandine with Preserved Lemon

Serious Eats Blake Royer Post a comment

Last week, when celebrating Julia Child's100th birthday, I started craving that famous dish that she described as an early culinary epiphany while in France: sole meuniere. It is one of the best and simplest fish preparations in the world, with its nutty brown butter and burst of lemon juice. Amandine is a variation that uses sliced almonds, and this recipe from Bobby Flay takes it a step further with preserved lemons in place of lemon juice. More

Molasses-Mustard Glazed Pork Chops with Apple Butter

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

I have a real soft spot for pork chops and apples, especially around this time of the year. That's initially why I was into this recipe from Bobby Flay's Grill It!, as the apple butter seemed like an interesting twist. More

Dinner Tonight: Grilled Tuna with Red Tomatillo Sauce

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

The tomatillos, onion, and garlic cloves are roasted and then blended with the rest of the sauce ingredients. Then all you have to do is grill the tuna steaks. Be sure not to overcook them. Much like regular steaks, it seems like a crime to cook them past medium rare. More

Cook the Book: Pumpkin Pie with Cinnamon Crunch and Bourbon-Maple Whipped Cream

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 8 comments

For a very special Thanksgiving-themed episode of Throwdown!, Bobby Flay showed down with Michele Albano of Michele's Pies for a Pumpkin Pie bake-off. As someone who has always preferred pecan to pumpkin when it comes to Thanksgiving desserts, I have to say that Bobby's pie was the best of both worlds. It had the ideal ratio of pumpkin flavor cut with the warmth of brown sugar and molasses. And I'd be happy eating anything topped with that fantastic Bourbon-Maple Whipped Cream and Cinnamon Crunch.

Cook the Book: Bobby Flay's Spaghetti and Meatballs

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 5 comments

So far this week we've been featuring the winning recipes from Bobby Flay's Throwdown!, but judging by the caliber of Bobby Flay and his formidable competitors I had a feeling that the losing recipes were worth a try as well. To test my theory I opted to try Bobby Flay's version of Spaghetti and Meatballs, a lighter take on this Italian-American staple that ended up losing out to Mike Maroni's grandma's meatballs. More

When Bobby Flay went up against The Pop Shop on a grilled cheese-themed episode of Throwdown! it seemed like the New Jersey soda fountain with a menu featuring 31 varieties of grilled cheese would have the advantage for sure. But... More

Cook the Book: Melba Wilson's Southern Fried Chicken and Eggnog Waffles

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 6 comments

It's a shame that Bobby Flay had to go all the way uptown to Harlem for his Chicken and Waffles Throwdown! since there was no way he could possibly beat Melba Wilson's. On paper the recipe looks like the work of a mad woman—mustard and buttermilk soaked fried chicken piled on top of waffles made with eggnog in place of cream, all finished with sweet strawberry butter and even sweeter maple syrup, but somehow, when all of the elements come together (and are doused with syrup) it's insane in the most delicious way.

Cook the Book: Macaroni and Cheese Carbonara

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 16 comments

When Bobby Flay decided to tackle mac and cheese for one of his Throwdown! challenges, he set off for Philadelphia to go head-to-head with soul food queen Delilah Widner, of Delilah's. Instead of going the traditional mac route, Flay decided to add a few ingredients from an equally starchy, rich dish, pasta alla carbonara. More

Cook the Book: The Throwdown Cocktail

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 1 comment

On the Cocktails episode of Throwdown, Flay found himself pitted against Tobin Ellis, Vegas bartender extraordinaire. It was one of those challenges where Flay shouldn't have stood a chance but thanks to a consult with cocktail guru Dale Degroff, Flay was able to come up with a rum-based cocktail took the prize. With sweet chunks of pineapple, herbal notes from basil and mint, a spicy ginger syrup, and rich float of coconut cream, The Thowndown Cocktail won the judges over. I mixed up a pitcher of these Throwdown!-inspired cocktails at home—it only took one sip to figure out why Flay was the winner of this challenge. The mix was sweet and tropical, but with enough bright and sour notes to keep it from being cloying. More

Cook the Book: Plantain Shoestring Fries

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 4 comments

Plantains are not that popular in the U.S., but the rest of the world eats them up. They are a starchy staple of many tropical countries' diets. Wikipedia lists no fewer than 23 regional dishes that revolve around plantains. In... More

Cook the Book: Pickled Red Onions

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 2 comments

I love pretty much anything pickled, cucumbers, tomatoes, mushrooms, watermelon rind, okra, even pickled eggs. I have to say that my favorite pickled item is the onion. Those little pickled pearl onions in my jar of cornichons disappear way before... More

Cook the Book: Perfect French Fries

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 16 comments

I think that french fries are underappreciated. Sure, everyone eats them and enjoys them but do we ever really stop to think about the process of the french fry? I hadn't until I started working in a restaurant kitchen that... More
