Appetizers and Sides
This All-Clad model features extra-deep divots for maximum syrup capacity, makes two small waffles at a time, and contains a drip tray for minimizing spills and messes. The heavy stainless steel body and plates heat up quickly and evenly for consistent browning. The machine is compact in size and features cord storage and locking handles, making it easy to tuck away into any cabinet or on any shelf.
The Taste of Country Cooking
There are countless great books on American regional cooking, and dozens of them on the South alone. But Lewis's tribute to Southern cooking is particularly important, because it goes beyond just great recipes to tell her story of growing up in Virginia in a farming community founded by freed slaves. The Taste of Country Cooking is less an overarching reference work on Southern cooking and far more of a personal tale, and, given the history, that's what an essential book on the topic demands.
D'Artagnan Porcelet Shoulder
It can be hard to find skin-on, bone-in pork shoulders for roasting, but luckily D'Artagnan has got us all covered with their fantastic porcelet shoulder. We think everyone should ditch the tired holiday spiral ham this year, and slow-roast a milk-fed piglet shoulder instead. We promise it won't disappoint.
Valrhona Strawberry Inspiration
Made with freeze-dried strawberries and cocoa butter, this vibrant, all-natural confection isn't quite white chocolate (no milk), but it behaves much the same way. It's a sweet, tart, and creamy snack of its own, but brilliant in recipes where it's color and flavor can shine—try it as the basis for the chocolate shell of our homemade Klondike bars or use it in place of white chocolate in these macadamia nut cookies.
