British Bites: Gentlemen's Relish

This classic condiment is a type of seasoned anchovy butter that is also known as Patum Peperium. The strong anchovy flavor is complemented by cayenne pepper and ground nutmeg, and fresh lemon juice cuts through both the butter and the anchovy to add just a little lightness to this intense compound butter.

Taste Test: The Best Pickle Relish

Head out to some of the great hot-doggeries in this country, say, Marci's in Jersey or Speed Dog up in Boston, and you'll know that what goes on top of the dog is almost as important as the dog itself. If you don't start with a high quality frank, preferably with a snappy, natural casing, you're never going to have a good eating experience—but a perfect relish, with a balance of sweet and tangy flavors and real crunchy bits of vegetables, can take a great dog and turn it great. Here are our picks for which relishes are worth relishing. More

Grilling: Roasted Corn Relish

I loved how this all came together. The first taste was of sweet and tangy corn, but the sweetness slowly fades, giving way to the heat from the jalapeno and an earthiness from the chili powder and cumin. The "relish" can double as a dip for tortilla chips, salad topping, or taco condiment—it'll add excellent flavor to whatever it touches. More

Sauced: Sweet Cucumber Relish

This cucumber relish is sweet and tangy with a nice note of celery and a little bitterness from the mustard seed to really round it out. It's perfect for canning, but there's no reason it can't be used right away—I expect this batch to be gone by the end of a Memorial Day cookout. More

Hot Dog of the Week: Flo's Hot Dogs

With July being national hot dog month I thought I'd start off with the dog that gets my vote for the best in the country. Flo's Hot Dogs on Route 1 in Cape Neddick, Maine, is not only the best hot dog I've ever had, but an overall mind-blowing experience. More
