First Look: At Tribeca Canvas, Masaharu Morimoto Does Comfort Food

Masaharu Morimoto is one of the biggest names in Japanese cuisine. The owner of more than five eponymous restaurants, he has also become a veritable celebrity through his appearances on Iron Chef and Iron Chef America.

Still, there are Morimoto twists to every classic American dish that Tribeca Canvas offers. More

21 Recipes for Holiday Party Hors d'oeuvres

Thanksgiving Sides: 12 Soup Recipes

Soups aren't necessarily a Thanksgiving standard, but maybe they should be. After all, they can be made ahead of time and store well, and they give dinner a structured quality, which Thanksgiving could use, at least in my house where the feast always has a crazed, mad-dash-for-the-turkey kind of energy. We've gathered up some of our favorites: squash and apple soup, celeriac soup with gruyere, pistachio and parsnip soup, and more. More
