One of the most beloved street foods from Vietnam, the irresistible bahn mi is traditionally made with juicy sliced meat (usually pork), crunchy pickled vegetables, fresh chilies, herbs and a sauce. It is served on a baguette with a soft crumb and thin, crispy crust. Lucky for us, we can make a wonderful version at home: seared ground pork patties get extra savory flavor from aromatic fish sauce and sweet and salty hoisin, and quick pickled vegetables add satisfying lightly acidic crunch. A simple sauce of mayonnaise and sriracha contributes a creamy element; sliced jalapenos a burst of heat; and fresh cilantro leaves just the right amount of green herbaceous-ness.
Contrasts make for beautiful food, giving the cook a chance to be an artist as they arrange the plate. That was the reason behind me first creating this rich red relish to go with chicken or white fish, as a pairing for the Little Penguin Shiraz. As it happened, the deep, jammy Shiraz also accentuates the flavor of the plums to make the perfect pairing for a moist mild cut of meat.
Typically, jerk involves marinating meats in a spicy paste, but this recipe uses a dry rub that’s loads easier to make yet just as effective at delivering a taste of the Caribbean. Coconut rice and a rum pan sauce complete the island vibe.
This bowl is creamy, bright, crisp, tangy, sweet, and savory all at the same time. You can substitute the homemade barbecue sauce with half of a cup of store bought—but why would you want to? The sauce is so easy and yummy, you might make a double or triple batch and enjoy it all summer long.
Everything you love about your favorite Mexican breakfast—or lunch, brunch, or dinner!—in a cozy, comforting bowl.
While we usually think of tarte tatin as a sweet skillet-roasted dessert, this wonderfully savory version was inspired by late summer tomatoes. The tomatoes are cooked in an intriguing sherry vinegar-based caramel, topped with a classic piecrust dough, (puff pastry makes a great stand in) and baked until the tomatoes burst with flavor and the crust turns golden. The tart is then inverted on to a platter and served with a dollop of umami-rich creamy anchovy mayonnaise.
Creamy, decadent and unbelievably light pretty much sums up this beautiful cheesecake. Filled with bright lemon zest and a fresh blueberry topping, it will always have you going back for one more bite!

The onions aren’t quite caramelized but are cooked long enough to be soft. The filling is simple but the soft onions paired with the tang of the goat cheese makes for a solid meal. Add to that the fresh greens and a light vinaigrette (another nod to Julia), it’s the perfect way to start your day.
When asked to develop a recipe inspired by the work of famed cooking teacher and cookbook author Anne Willan, a gratin sprang immediately to mind. Anne is best known as the founder of the La Varenne Cooking School in Paris and nothing feels more effortlessly French than a simple fennel gratin.

Cassoulet is a classic French dish that isn’t difficult to make but does take a bit of planning. This version uses duck confit and dried beans. The duck confit can be made ahead of time but you can also just purchase the duck confit legs already made from an upscale grocery store if you wish.
Traditional Roman-style Carbonara uses carryover heat from the piping hot pasta to cook eggs into a silky, creamy sauce.
