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: Red Cabbage Soup with Crispy Guanciale, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and Grapes

Recipe for Red Cabbage Soup with Crispy Guanciale, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and Grapes, adpated by the James Beard Foundation

"The purple and thick red cabbage, the pungent, chlorophyll-rich extra virgin olive oil, and the last grapes of the season, probably a little shrunken and sleepy. It’s a good soup to prepare on a lazy morning, one of those frosty autumn mornings." We'll wager that it's just as delicious for dinner.
