Yes, root vegetables have a reputation for being heavy and sweet, long-cooking, and, well, boring. But for a class of vegetable that spends its lifetime underground and survives conditions that most produce simply cannot endure, root vegetables could also be called winter's unsung heroes—used properly, they can be remarkably delicate, fresh-tasting, and complex. From a vibrant and crunchy shaved beet and radish salad to the creamiest, cheesiest potato gratin you'll ever meet, we've got 19 recipes to prove it.

It's tempting to make a list of "dad desserts" that just includes everything beer and broey (as much as desserts can be such a thing.) But you know what? Dads are just like us. Some like chocolate. Some like vanilla. Some are cookie monsters and some want nothing more than a pint of ice cream that they can ruin for the rest of us.
