Happy Chinese New Year! Regardless of the New Year's menus each of my head chefs is planning, you can be certain that some form or other of one dish will be included: stir-fried vegetables.
One of the most popular "new" treats of recent years has been a comforting little pastry called the hand pie.
Almost everyone is familiar with the phrase "easy as apple pie," meant to suggest that a task couldn't be simpler. Many home cooks consider pie-making a difficult task. I think the time has come for a home pie-making revival.
Braising yields some of the best main dishes I know to serve on a chilly winter evening. The results are surprisingly complex and thoroughly delicious.
It doesn't take any psychic powers to predict what you'll be doing on New Year's Day. And you're thinking something like, 'Oh, no, not again! I've made that resolution myself, year after year.
One of the Christmas presents I've looked forward to every year since childhood doesn't come with wrapping paper or ribbon. You'll find this gift, in fact, in your refrigerator the morning after Christmas Day.
