Recipe: Crackling-Crusted Scallops with Tabasco Sauce and Tasso Ham Candy

Crackling-Crusted Diver Scallops with Tabasco Sauce and Tasso Ham Candy In this Cajun-style recipe from Louisianan chef Scott Varnedoe, scallops are hugged in a porky crust of powdered cracklings, then napped with a buttery Tabasco sauce. Varnedoe plays up the porcine factor by adding candied shards of smoky tasso ham, a regional specialty that's woefully hard to come by beyond Bayou Country, but thick-cut sliced bacon or pancetta work well in its place.

Market Haul: August 3

the market haulIt probably comes as no surprise that here at the JBF offices, we like to talk about food—a lot. One of the topics we most often discuss is what we bought at the greenmarket or received in our weekly CSA box and what we’re planning on cooking with it. Sometimes even the most experienced cook needs a little inspiration, especially when faced with five pounds of rutabaga for the third week in a row. To bring that conversation to our readers, we’re launching a new series called Market Haul in which we’ll share a list of ingredients and the dishes we plan to make with them. We hope you’ll jump into the discussion with your own recipe ideas and ingredient challenges

The Haul: green beans, dill, Japanese eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, cipollini onions, carrots, garlic, kohlrabi, Walla Walla onions, peaches, nectarines, blueberries

Recipe: Luis Gonzales's Tres Leches Cake

tres leches cake A long-disputed history surrounds the decadent tres leches cake, with many a Central American country vying for bragging rights over its moist, sugary crumb.
