Beard House Recipe: Roasted Cauliflower Soup with Pancetta

 

We think it's safe to say that cauliflower is having its moment. From crispy fritters to a silky puréed base for seafood to a stand-alone vegetarian entrée, we're devouring the cruciferous edible in a myriad of delicious ways. One of our favorite recent encounters with the trendy vegetable went down at the Beard House, when the culinary team from Atlanta's Cooks & Soldiers created a spirited Basque holiday feast.

Slurp's Up: Charles Phan's Pho Bo Recipe

 

“I brought some whiskey," chef Charles Phan says, setting down a bottle of Four Roses on a long wooden table. It's a couple hours before the final dinner of the totally packed, three-day pop-up of Phan's famed San Francisco Vietnamese restaurant, The Slanted Door, at Brooklyn's Wythe Hotel—hence the bourbon—and in the calm before the pre-service storm, Phan slipped away to school us in the art of making pho bo.

Recipe Roundup: Winter Squash

 

Why should summer squash get all the love? Winter squash are some of the most delicious versatile ingredients of the entire year. Although these recipes all call for perennial favorites like butternut squash or pumpkin, feel free to substitute any flavorful, orange-fleshed winter squash you find at the market. We particularly like the Kabocha and Buttercup varieties for their sweetness; Acorn for its dainty size; and Delicata for its hearty, edible peel—but don't be afraid to get creative.

Soup Weather

 

When the temperature is in the negative digits and the snowfall is downright apocalyptic (we're looking at you, Boston), the only thing to do is stay home and make soup. It's a cliché for a reason: nobody's craving a smoothie this time of year. We want warm, comforting bowls of clam chowder or lentils, spicy chicken broth or bourbon-laced onion soup. Make these dishes now—it's going to be a while before those snowbanks melt.
