70% cacao chocolate, yolks, and a bit of heavy cream add up to one heck of a deep, dark, sinfully decadent baked chocolate custard.
Sweet, snack-like foods are not usually my pick for breakfast. I'm less likely to grab a muffin or slice of coffee cake than I am to slurp down a bowl of oatmeal. Still, slightly sweet baked goods like Megan Gordon's blueberry breakfast bars in her new cookbook, Whole-Grain Mornings, could find a place in my breakfast routine if I need a quick grab-and-go meal.
There are few things better for the soul or the body than a tangle of slick rice noodles in a rich, crystal clear, intensely beefy broth; the warm aroma of cinnamon, cloves, and star anise rising up in a cloud of steam. The intensely savory-salty hint of fish sauce balanced by a squeeze of lime juice and a handful of fresh herbs and chilies that you add to your bowl as you eat. Here's how to make it at home.
Spatchcocking delivers breast meat juicier than a standard roast turkey, leg meat more tender than a standard roast turkey, and skin that's so crisp it literally shatters when you poke it, all in about half the time it takes to roast a conventional turkey. A perfect Thanksgiving bird on the table in under 90 minutes? Watch the video to see how it's done.
What kind of turkey should I buy? What size? How far in advance? And what the heck do I do with it once it's at home? All of these burning questions and more, straight ahead.
This particular method is for folks who want the fastest, quickest, easiest route to juicy turkey meat, and ultra-crisp skin. Basically it's a method for lazy folks with great taste. Sound like you? Then spatchcock the bird. I'll show you how.

The Mid-Autumn Festival kicks off today, which means it's high time for mooncakes, those dense, lightly sweetened pastries stuffed with lotus seed paste and salted eggs. Where are you getting yours and what are your favorite flavors?
In 1932, Ninth Avenue in Manhattan was something of an outdoor food mall, populated by butchers, fruit and vegetable stands, sweets shops and bakeries. Esposito's Pork Shop, at the corner of Ninth and 38th, has been a bustling neighborhood institution since it opened that year, and today is run by a third generation of Espositos.
Macaron-makers Simon Tung and Christina Ha spend their days at the new East Village location of Macaron Parlour, but their off time is all Chinatown. Take a look at Simon's picks for noodles, dumplings, roast pork, rice crepes, and more.
While I don't keep stats on such things, I'm fairly sure I set a personal speed record for inhaling this fantastic burger.
You shouldn't panic because foie gras is one of the easiest proteins to cook in the world. Far simpler than a steak or a chicken breast. Infinitely more forgiving than a pork chop or a piece of delicate fish. It's nearly foolproof by nature. Here's how to do it.
