Recipe: Wings with Habanero–Honey Sauce

 

Forget patriotism: we believe that a delicious Fourth of July spread is the best way to unite fellow countrymen. These sweet and spicy glazed wings from Texan chef David Cordúa will definitely show up on ours. Tossed in a sauce of brown butter, honey, and tongue-pricking habanero vinegar, these American beauties will be gone long before the first fireworks burst. Get the recipe here.

Chefs & Champagne, our annual summer tasting party in the Hamptons, is one of our favorite gatherings, and this year's event is extra special because it’s happening while we celebrate our silver anniversary. (Get your tickets here!)

 

While we knew that the party’s offerings of Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte, Wölffer Estate Vineyard wines, Belgian beers, and dishes from more than 30 chefs would be a huge draw on their own (check out the full menu), we still wondered how we could make this year’s Chefs & Champagne more exciting than ever. Then it hit us: why not team up with one of the biggest food shows on television? A few phone calls later, we're thrilled to be teaming up the JBF Award–winning cast of Chopped, including its incredibly knowledgeable host, Ted Allen, and its... Read more >

JBF's Best of the Best: José Andrés Bonus Chapter!

 

Our recently released book, The James Beard Foundation's Best of the Best: A 25th Anniversary Celebration of America's Outstanding Chefs, profiles the winners of the Foundation's Outstanding Chef award from 1991 to 2010, and also offers several delicious recipes from each one. When we went to press in 2011, the always charming José Andrés had just nabbed that year's Outstanding Chef award, so author Kit Wohl got to work on a bonus chapter. We decided to make it available to everyone, so download the PDF now. It includes four delicious recipes, including Andrés's oddball spin on the Philly cheesesteak and a shrimp and grapefruit salad that comes together in minutes. If you like what you see, order a copy of the full book.

Market Haul: June 20

 

The growing season has begun, which means that CSA members throughout the country are getting shares packed with early crops, like lettuce, radishes, and baby spinach. If you're like many of us, you might feel somewhat ambivalent about the bounty of Boston, romaine, and red-leaf heads making their way into your box this month. On the one hand, it's such a treat to have fresh-from-the-farm salad greens on hand to toss with olive oil and lemon juice at a moment's notice. On the other hand...lettuce is so annoying to wash. The only way to make sure none of it goes to waste? Surrender to the lettuce: make peace with the fact that you'll need to dedicate half an hour each week to your salad spinner. With leaves washed, dried, and bagged in the fridge, salads become the effortless summer meals they were meant to be.

 

The Haul: Baby spinach, Toscano kale, garlic scapes, red leaf lettuce, cilantro, red beets, Japanese salad turnips, strawberries.
