The crust for this savory pizza is grilled on both sides: this allows it to cook through and get just enough char without burning. The crispy crust is the perfect vehicle for a topping of savory lamb cooked with aromatic spices and finished with a sprinkling of feta and sumac.
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.

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.

Skillet-roasting spatchcocked chicken does nearly magical things to an ordinary chicken: the result is golden crisp skin and juicy tender meat. In fact, because of the way the bird sits in the pan, the breast cooks to an ideal 160 degrees and the thigh to 170-175°F in the same amount of time.
