Recipe: Patatas Bravas with Fried Eggs and Chorizo

Patatas Bravas with Fried Eggs and Chorizo

One of the most celebrated standards of classic Spanish cuisine, patatas bravas consist of perfectly fried potatoes paired with a fiery tomato-based sauce. The dish is typically enjoyed during nighttime tapas-bar crawls, but this souped-up version from Ryan Poli of Chicago's Tavernita also feels right at home on the breakfast table. Crispy pan-fried chorizo and bits of fried egg join the potatoes, then the whole heap is tossed in a brava sauce that pulses with the heat of cumin and paprika. Get the

Peach and Raspberry Gratin with Noyaux Cream

Here's a recipe from our 2004 Outstanding Chef Award winner, Judy Rodgers, to keep on hand for summer: a sweet and tart gratin of peaches and raspberries, topped with bread crumbs soaked in brown butter. In a typical show of ingenuity, Rodgers breaks open peach pits to retrieve the inner kernels (noyaux in French), which she uses to infuse cream with silky, almond-like flavor. Is it July yet?

Recipes from the Best of the Best: Larry Forgione's Shortcake

Jim's shortbread

Like the apple pie or malt-shop sundae, the shortcake has a rightful place in the canon of classic American desserts. Fittingly, it's also found among some of James Beard's most legendary recipes. After inheriting it from his mother, Beard later passed his shortcake recipe on to his friend Larry Forgione, the chef at An American Place in New York City. Charmed by the dessert's sublimely tender crumb, Forgione gave it a place on his menu; when Beard dined at the restaurant, he sampled the shortcake and declared, "There is no better dessert." Forgione went on to win the James Beard Foundation's Outstanding Chef Award in 1993, and today the shortcake can be found in St. Louis, on the menu at his second location of An American Place. ...

Valentine's Day Recipe: Toffee Bread Pudding with Clotted Cream and Caramel

toffee bread pudding

This Valentine's Day, rather than bumping elbows with other couples in close quarters at the latest in-demand restaurant, cuddle up at home with your sweetheart and this indulgent take on bread pudding from Brian Reyelt. The Boston-based chef uses a mixture of custard and buttery croissants to build the bulk of the dessert, then finishes it with a drizzle of caramel sauce and a crowning of clotted cream. We love the tiny shards of chocolate toffee that hide among the decadent layers of dough. It's fun to excavate them with a spoon—much more fun than trying to secure a restaurant reservation.

Super Bowl Recipe: Duck Wings with Asian Chili Sauce

duck wings

We may not all be rooting for the same team this Sunday, but everyone can unite behind wings and their indispensable role in any game-day spread. In this Asian-inspired recipe from JBF Award winner Keith Luce, the standard wing gets a serious upgrade: Luce swaps out quotidian chicken for succulent duck, which is cured in brown sugar and spices for three days. The wings then enjoy a long soak in warm fat, followed by quick dip in frying oil. Shellacked in a glaze of sweet chili sauce, rice wine vinegar, and sambal olek, these drumettes won't last long beyond the coin toss. Get the recipe here.
