Miso Butterscotch Sundae

JBF Award Winner Christina Tosi
Momofuku Milk Bar, NYC

 

Christina Tosi first created the unusual, slightly savory topping for this sundae when building the dessert menu for the Momofuku restaurant group.

Recipes: Fourth of July Done Right

 

Flame-loving carnivores: this is your moment. Your time to shine. Your star turn. Your holiday. Don't waste it on some chicken breasts covered in jarred barbecue sauce. If you really want to honor your country (and win summer), you'll celebrate the way you should: with copious amounts of fire-seared meat, a couple of traditional sides, and a peach milkshake spiked with bourbon. (Red, white, and blue deviled eggs and berry flag mosaics are strictly optional.)

Recipe: Crespelle with Red Wine Strawberries and Ricotta

Recipe for Crespelle with Red Wine Strawberries and Ricotta

 

Crespelle: it's how the Italians do crêpes. This version calls for "00 flour" (or doppio zero, as they say on the boot), a powder-fine flour that yields an exceptionally delicate pancake. We recommend splurging on a premium ricotta for the filling, and since it's full-on strawberry season right now, you should be able to get some fine fruit, too. Get the recipe here.

Kid-Friendly Food Everyone Will Want to Eat

 

In theory, we're not fans of kids' meals. In theory, we don't believe children should be allowed to fill their plates with only white food, or that one should have to transform broccoli and red pepper strips into artful renderings of scenes from the Lego movie in order to get one's children to eat vegetables. Food is food, right? We need to man up and stop serving our kids chicken nuggets shaped like Disney characters.

 

But, as anyone who is responsible for the feeding and watering of small humans at least three times a day knows, it can get a little exhausting. No matter how adventurous your kids are, some nights they just don't want to taste the parsley-flecked lamb stew or authentic Andalucian white gazpacho you made for dinner. Some nights they don't even... Read more >

Recipe: Vanilla–Pisco Flan with Roasted Strawberries

Recipe for Vanilla–Pisco Flan with Roasted Strawberries

 

In this elegant dish from chef Ricardo Zarate, an otherwise standard-issue flan gets a hit of mosto verde pisco, a highly prized South American brandy that's distilled from partially fermented grape must. The finished custards are topped with strawberries that have been roasted in brown sugar, lemon, honey, and more brandy. Get the recipe here.

Gluten-Free Desserts That Are Actually Delicious

 

There's no shortage of gluten-free recipes out there, but as anyone who has dabbled in the flourless arts can attest, it can be hard to find a good one. Especially when it comes to desserts. Fortunately, each of the following dishes can stand up to even the most gluten-packed sweet treats. Round out the flour-free finale with port-poached pears, a bowl of berries and cream, or homemade gelato.

 

Ginger Cookies

Rolling the dough in Demerara or turbinado sugar before baking is what gives these spicy, chewy cookies their crisp edges. To make this dish wheat-free, follow the special instructions provided.
