The Best Egg Salad

Serious Eats J. Kenji López-Alt 28 comments

Perfect is a word that I throw around a lot, and it's always with the understanding that it's a goal that can be strived for but never achieved.

For those of us who aren't lucky enough to have a leftover ham in our fridge, any ham that fits your preference will work (honey roasted, jamón Serrano, black forest)—in fact, some good-looking bacon will work in pinch as well.

[Robin Bellinger] This deliciously unusual sandwich comes from Clotilde Dusoulier's Chocolate and Zucchini—the book, not the blog! Making your own tomato condiment may sound a bit fussy, but it’s actually very little trouble (and, more important, totally worth it). Although... More

Serious Eats Lucy Baker 5 comments

Photograph by Lucy Baker. To my delight, fig season seems to be extra long-lasting this year. Normally, the delicate, tear drop-shaped fruits are only available for a few short weeks at the end of summer. But here we are in... More
