Recipe: Apple Galette

apple-galette-blog-resized February can be a testing month for the foodie, as frozen food aisles and fruits from another hemisphere start to beckon our soup-and-stew-weary stomachs. But consider this comforting apple galette, which makes the best out of the lone fruit sitting in ghost town greenmarkets. Spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, this dessert will keep you warm, satisfied, and sane until spring's explosion of fresh foodstuffs arrives.

Recipe: Rosemary Madeleines

madeleines-rosemary Our recipe tester loved the taste of these charming madeleines from Le Bec-Fin's Nicholas Elmi. The cookies are flavored with fragrant rosemary, tangy orange zest, and soulfully sweet brown sugar, which fuse together into an elegant, sweet-and-savory combination that's totally intoxicating. If you don't already own a madeleine pan, this is the perfect excuse to get one.

Recipe: Orange Blossom Beignets

orange blossom beignets Today is Mardi Gras, and we've got a recipe for your celebration: these airy and addictive beignets from San Francisco chef Gerald Hirigoyen. He's serving them with a turrón mousse cake and candied almonds at tonight's Beard House dinner, but we think these fritters are delicious on their own. You can find orange blossom water at your local specialty food shop or a Middle Eastern grocery store.

Recipe: Beef Short Ribs in Moscatel

braised short ribs Here's a weekend recipe for our snowed-slammed East Coast readers: fall-off-the-bone braised short ribs, cooked slow in Moscatel, a sweet, full-bodied wine from Spain. A host of spices gives the rich braising liquid some extra oomph; jalapeño chile brings bite. Aside from the critical step of browning the meat, this dish practically makes itself, which is just what you need after three days of shoveling.

Recipe: Smoked Bluefish with Potato Pancakes, Greek Yogurt, and Dill

smoked bluefish with pancakes We love the sound of these rich, savory pancakes from chef Jason Weiner. Topped with smoked bluefish and tangy Greek yogurt, they also get some crucial bite from minced red onion and zesty lemon. Double or triple 'em up for a light brunch, or serve the pancakes individually as hors d'oeuvre.

Recipe: Goat Cheese Crêpes with Herb Salad

Goat cheese crepes Tangy and sweet, these unfussy goat cheese crêpes from chef Christopher Edwards are an excellent dish for a Sunday brunch. His recipe calls for frisée and an herb salad of basil, chives, and tarragon. We think any combination of greens is the perfect accompaniment.

Recipe: Warm Oysters with Prosecco, Cauliflower, and Sorrel Soup

Warm Oysters with Prosecco, Cauliflower, and Sorrel Soup The indulgent pairing of oysters and Champagne is one that is often celebrated simply. But at tonight's Beard House dinner, Seattle chef Ethan Stowell will rearrange the duo into a luxurious soup, incorporating refreshing Prosecco, cauliflower, and bitter sorrel. Keep his simple recipe in mind for a low-key weekend dinner party. (If sorrel is not available, spinach or arugula make great substitutions.)
