How to Find and Order Great Pizza in New York

Thanks for trying to teach the proper lingo. I'm really trying to teach Joe's in LA that my order of a "regular slice" which is always how I've ordered it at home in NY. Also, a little homesick for Stromboli's slices.

Does The Doughnut Vault Serve the Best Doughnut in America?

So glad they included Dottie's in Woodbury, CT. They are my dream doughnut. I like Stans in LA, but Dottie's are really special. Crispy edges, not too sweet and equally good any way you order them: plain, cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla. I hear the pot pies are great, too.

Headed Cross Country, Need Suggestions!

I drove across country NYC to LA a couple of years ago, and these are the two I wouldn't miss out on (and I would love to revisit):
Prince's Hot Chicken in Nashville
Maria's in Santa Fe

Pete Wells vs. Guy Fieri vs. The World

The review was a hoot. Come on, the prices he's charging? There are many tourist traps to choose from in NYC and Wells was reviewing the place from that point of view. It's clear that he wasn't comparing it to either fine dining or small chef driven places, but to chains with similar menus. That review was fun to read and a good warning for those who like to be informed before spending our money and calories on crap and aggravation.

How can I make my pizza dough softer?

I recommend Kenji's NY style recipe with the food processor method. It tastes great for dough to be baked in a home oven.

Doughnuts Make the Coffee at Coffee An' Donut Shop in Westport, Connecticut

Glad your covering the goods in CT. You must check out the doughnuts at Dottie's in Woodbury, CT. I like the doughnuts at Cofffee An', but I LOVE the ones at Dottie's.

NY to LA roadtrip-must eats along southern route?

Thanks and please keep them coming! It's a long hungry drive. I probably go down through VA, TN, Arkansas, OK, TX, NM, AZ to CA but will keep all suggestions in mind.

Kouign Amann recipe

FLorian Bellanger made it on Martha Stewart, and although I have not tried my hand at the recipe, I have eaten his Kouing Aman, and they are my choice for part of a last meal. Here's the link to the recipe.

Cook the Book: 'Baking Unplugged'

I left the eggs out of Nigella's chocolate loaf cake. It was undelicious. I had to appologize....for something chocolate...

Ham-tastic recipe?

I'm doing Nigella's ham in coke. I asked people on this boad which kind of ham (Nigella isn't that specific). The recipe is much lauded round the net.

A genuine kouign amann in New York City?

Alas Fauchon is gone. They had ones that were my choice for last meal.

Nigella's Ham in Coke-what ham?

I'm going to look for an uncooked cured bone-in. Her other recipe for ham in coke from another book calls for the bone. sounds better. thanks all, and if anyone has any comments from making it, I'd love to hear them. I'm going to make it for christmas, so I have time to think about it.

dijon or Coleman's

Nigella's Ham in Coke-what ham?

Thanks for the link, but she also states a "mild cure" and gives direction should one have a "salty" piece...fresh ham as we know it should have neither and is just a cut of pork leg, I believe.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Two Peter Luger Steaks

Porterhouse. Rare and salty...

Cook the Book: 'Baked, New Frontiers in Baking'

pecan pie. I have not outgrown it, but unfortunately nobody else in my family likes it, so I'm making apple (as required by my brother "a good guest would bring apple...")

Sauces for Belgian Fries

For New Year's I'm serving Belgian fries. Any sauce recipes (other than ketchup or mayo). I cant find recipes for the kinds of sauces served in the Belgian fries shops around nyc.

mail order bone in ham

Oscar's Smokehouse burned down in September. Now where should I get my Xmas ham? Can't find any taste tests online for bone in artisan hams. Maybe Ed Levine could be persuaded to run a test?

Nigella's Ham in Coke-what ham?

What kind of ham have people used? She says a mild cure. I need more specific direction. Cook's illustrated uses a fresh ham for their version, but it seems like Nigella uses a cured one. Partially cooked? Fully cooked? She lists a 5-6 lb. boneless ham for the Ham in Cherry Coke in FEAST, and many web sources list the English "gammon joint" - which sounds bone-in to me. Anybody? Brand names, hints and success (failure) stories welcome.
