The Food Lab Thanksgiving Special: Ultra-Crispy New Potatoes With Garlic, Herbs, and Lemon

@Kenji Looks great. I'm definitely thinking making this as a side for Thanksgiving. Can the potatoes be par boiled, tossed in oil, and set on the baking pans in advance? The meal is not at my house, and I'd like to be able to throw the pans in the oven to avoid extra time in the kitchen. Not sure if this will have any adverse effects to the crispiness of the potatoes. Thanks for the recipe!

One- Skillet Wonders?!?...

Being on a budget and in need of quick dinners, I use one-skillet meals, as well. One go-to I have is a sort of turkey ragu:

I brown some ground turkey, then throw in chopped canned tomatoes and beans (garbanzo and chickpeas are my favoite), as well as some salt, pepper and any other spices I feel like. I cover it and let it simmer for around 10 minutes, then throw in a handful of spinach and let it wilt for a couple of minutes. Once done, I'll spoon it over some jasmine or brown rice.

Quick and delicious, and healthy too.

What's Your Hangover Cure?

In college it was Footlong Turkey sub from Subway with Chipotle Southwest dressing, and a Diet Coke. Now it's lots of coffee and anything greasy from the diner. Been getting on the coconut water bandwagon, as well.

Ask Mario Batali Anything

I keep hearing technqiue is the key to being a good cook. What are some techniques you recommend every home cook learn? And how can we go about learning these techniques without formal training or lessons?

Indianapolis: The Hubbub is Deserved at Bub's

They have a Bub's in Bloomington, IN where I go to school. Unlike most places, they're not afraid to season their patties and it makes for a great burger. Good column.

Food Network Shows

Tyler's Ultimate is my favorite "how-to" show on Food Network. The food he makes is just amazing. I also like Barefoot and Guy's Big Bite, because his stuff is pretty easy to make.

I'm also pretty obsessed with Iron Chef America and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

But I'll watch whatever's on usually...unless it's Sandra

Sevilla in the Village. Best paella in NYC

Whats your favourite comfort food ?

Whatever my mom or grandma used to make for me on a cold day: matzo ball soup, chicken cutlets, kasha varnishkes, to name a few.

NYC Dinner for Girlfriend's Birthday

It is my girlfriend's birthday in early December and I would like to book a reservation for dinner. Our favorite restaurant is ABC Kitchen, but we could not get a reservation unfortunately. Does anyone have another recommendation for a similar restaurant? Something simple, fresh, New American, etc. Open to any recommendations. Thanks.

Ground Turkey Ideas

I'm looking to make dinner tonight with some ground turkey I took out of the freezer. I cook with it a lot...it's cheap and easy, which is good for a college senior like me. But I'm sick of the same thing over and over...turkey chili, with pasta, boring burgers, etc. I only have a stove and oven, no grill. Any good recipes for ground turkey? Open to anything, thanks.

Great Chicago Restaurants

I'm going to Chicago with a group of couples for my Senior year College Formal. It is the last time I'll be together with all my close friends before we graduate, and I'd love to make it memorable. I'm looking for a great restaurant in downtown Chicago that would appeal to everyone's tastes and will not break the bank (Alinea and Spaggio, for example, are very much out of our price ranges). I've come up with a couple of options, like Taxim and Prarie Fire, which were rated two of the best new restaurants in Chicago by Chicagomag.com. Does anyone have any other suggestions? There will be around 12 people total. Nothing too stuffy and fancy but also a really nice place that will offer some great food at fair prices ($20-$35ish per entree, for example).

Canned Sardines Ideas

I love canned sardines, for both the nutritional value and for the taste. For lunch, I'll usually eat them straight from the can or put them on some buttered toast, but it's getting a little boring. Does anyone have any ideas for quick and easy lunch recipes using sardines?

Grilling Whole Fish

I just grilled whole red snapper and branzino for dinner tonight. I stuffed it with some lemon slices and herbs and they both came out really well. I'm curious to see what other fish I can use.

What fish do you use to grill whole and how do you prepare it?
