Dinner Tonight: Tyler Florence's Peach, Mozzarella, and Crispy Prosciutto Salad

While the summer months are over and fall is approaching, this is nonetheless one of the best times of year for cooking, in my opinion—not to mention eating outside. The weather is a tad cooler, but the produce is still excellent. In that spirit, I selected this recipe from Tyler Florence, which relies on gorgeous, juicy peaches as a counterpoint to shaved fennel, peppery watercress, creamy mozzarella, and crisp slices of prosciutto.

Thai Red Curry Chicken Wings

Though chicken wings almost never occur to me when I'm figuring out dinner, there's no good reason they can't do the job: roasted chicken wings offer the pleasure of a roast chicken in a fraction of the time, with the added benefit of a decadent skin-to-meat ratio. Wings call out for a good sauce, naturally, which is what led me to this Tyler Florence recipe More

16 Great Bites from the Los Angeles Food & Wine Grand Tasting

Last weekend marked the first annual Los Angeles Food & Wine (yes, that's the full name), an occasion where, according to the posters that popped up around town "Celebrity Meets Celebrity Chef." Many stars of the kitchen made an appearance at the Lexus Grand Tasting, a two-day affair at L.A. Live downtown, which paired 30 chefs each day with some 200 wineries. It was a race with the clock and the stomach to make it around the room, gobbling up as much pork jowl and Pinot before time was up or extreme satiety set in. Here are some of our favorite bites.

Preview: 'The Great Food Truck Race' on Food Network

As street food has become more and more popular across the U.S., it was only a matter of time before the Food Network caught wind and dedicated a show to it. This Sunday sees the premiere of the latest in a slew of food competition shows sweeping cable: The Great Food Truck Race, hosted by Tyler Florence. The premise is this: Seven food trucks race across the U.S., with overnight stops in cities along the way. In each city, the trucks have to restock their kitchens and battle it out to make the most money in 48 hours. The truck to rake in the least must hit the road. So is it any good? We previewed the first episode. More

Meet & Eat: Tyler Florence

I've long had a bit of a schoolgirl crush on Tyler Florence. His intensity about cooking and engaging narrative always make me want to whip up any of his "ultimate" dishes. (In fact, I've done just that several times—always to great success.) Though his past shows have all been cooking-related, Tyler's newest Food Network project is called The Great Food Truck Race. It follows seven top-notch food trucks as they race across the country, cooking all the way. I chatted with Tyler about the new show, which premieres on Sunday, August 15, his three new restaurants and more. More

Cooking with Kids: Scrambled Egg Smackdown with Tyler Florence

My daughter and I eat a lot of scrambled eggs for breakfast, and I make them over medium-high heat and get them in and out of the pan as fast as possible. But according to Food Network host Tyler Florence, whose son Hayden (19 months) is also an egg aficionado, I’m doing it wrong. “My son, he loves scrambled eggs,” said Florence when I spoke to him on the phone recently. “Farm-fresh organic eggs, a little bit of whole milk, two tablespoons of butter and a nonstick pan. Cook eggs at a low temperature, because the temperature reacts with the protein in eggs and makes them very rubbery. Light, fluffy, billowy eggs, that is achieved with a low, slow cooking... More

More Golden Clog Award Fallout

Tyler Florence on the dubious honor of winning Anthony Bourdain and Michael Ruhlman's "Rocco" Golden Clog award: "I think that salacious, chef attack thing that Gordon Ramsey and Tony Bourdain do all the time is a shtick. I think people are tired of hearing it. With Tony, it's like... those who can't teach, criticize [others]. I don’t know what he does honestly."... More

Golden Clog Winners Announced

Our friends at Eater San Francisco live-blogged the Golden Clog Awards. We are sure Anthony Bourdain and Michael Ruhlman were sufficiently inebriated (even in the daytime) to make the whole affair more than a little amusing. Some of the high-lowlights: The Fergus Award for "greatest achievement in pork and guts" went to David Chang of Momfuku fame. The Rocco for "worst career move" went to Tyler Florence for "Applebee's, Applebee's, Applebee's." Ina Garten won The Alton, for "being on the Food Network and yet, somehow, managing to not suck."...
