The Japanese Way to Make Potato Salad

Would it be gilding the lily to boil the potatoes in dashi? Would you even notice?

20,000 Miles Till Lunch: To Inner Mongolia in an RV

Great article, but unfortunately for Otterroot I won't be taking parenting advice from a pre-teen (even one with exceptional grammar and vocabulary).

How to Make the Crispiest Pan-Seared Fish Skin

Great shout-out for Lamson! I love their knives - I'm working on a collection.

The factory in Shelburne Falls is a real treat too and I bet their process would make a great article on American knife-making. Not to mention that it's a beautiful New England town to send a lucky editor to for a weekend ;)

The Best Lobster Rolls in Boston

Kelly's has some pretty killer chowder too.

How to Make Flour Tortillas So Tasty You'll Want to Eat Them Alone

What's the consensus on using a little rendered bacon fat in the mix to amp up the porky flavor if you can't find back lard?

Inside New York's Cult of the Bialy

My parents used to pick up fresh bialys from Kossar's and the Sunday NYTimes late late on Saturday nights. One of my fav. sandwiches in existence is cold sliced flank steak, lettuce, tomato, and Russian dressing on a toasted bialy.

How to Make Japanese-Style Chicken Meatball Skewers With Sweet Soy Glaze (Tsukune)

Great recipe, and interesting to see that your taré didn't include chicken necks/backs.
That said, the only reference point I have is the recipe in the Momofuku book.

The Food Lab: For the Best Chicken Parmesan, Take a Lesson From the South

Great idea!
Makes me wonder what sort of other combo-cultural techniques would be useful.
This has me thinking about velveting beef for stroganoff!

Culture Club: 6 Made-in-NYC Yogurts Worth Seeking Out

I miss the local coverage pages, AHT, etc.

Change can be good but it just feels like the changes SE has made recently have all translated to "less content". I may be wrong, I hope I am.

Giveaway: Win a Super-Fast Thermapen Thermometer

Big thick pork chops. British Racing Green, please!

Chain Reaction: We Try the Dunkin' Donuts Eggs Benedict Sandwich

Tried one of these yesterday. Ham at DD is already a risky proposition to me - stuff is preeeeeetty slimy.

That sauce though... I knew something was wrong when I saw it applied with an ice cream scoop.

Never. Again.

The Food Lab: How to Make a Turkey, Bacon, and Broccoli Rabe Shooter's-Style Sandwich

@zakelwe if you pressed a smoked salmon and egg sandwich overnight at room temperature, the only thing you'd be hunting for the next day is the bathroom.

Are Shooter's Sandwiches Really Worth a Damn?

Alright so don't... make it while you're on the trail?
Have you never gone on a single-day hike?

The number of times I've gone up Greylock in an afternoon...
I can throw a rock from my cubicle and hit 4 people who went to school in the Pioneer Valley or the Berkshires, myself included.

Are Shooter's Sandwiches Really Worth a Damn?

Functionality is a big part of this sandwich. I've taken many a meal hiking and this would be a pretty perfect one. I'll bet some sort of crunchy, acidic side would be helpful. A little HP or A-1 wouldn't hurt either: another argument against using top-quality steaks.

Does Mission Cantina Make the Best Burritos in NYC?

I've had some tasty burritos that were entirely derailed by poor construction and uneven distribution of fillings. It's gotta taste good, but engineering counts too!

A Tour of the East Village's Borscht Belt Restaurants and Lunch Counters

If I ever hit the lotto, I'm buying that building Stage is in and giving it to that family gratis. 5 more years? Say it ain't so!

Vegan: Crispy Smoked Mushroom "Bacon"

Dude.... this on a pizza with other roasted mushrooms in thyme and butter and maybe some pecorino?

Vegan: Crispy Smoked Mushroom "Bacon"

This is fantastic. Would love to toss these on top of a bowl of pasta, or even into some party mix.

Emmett's Does Not Serve the Chicago Deep Dish You're Looking For

Aw man bummer. I wonder how it would be if the sausage were improved and they weren't always in the weeds.
