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

 

"In this dish we have a surprising group of fall friends," says Kim Brookmire, whose fiancé and fellow chef, Lorenzo Polegri, found the inspiration for this comforting soup in a family recipe. "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.

In Season: Pumpkins

pumpkin

Pumpkins have a bit of a typecasting problem. Though they loom large in America’s cultural consciousness each fall, their starring turns are limited to appearances as jack o’ lanterns on Halloween and in pumpkin pies on Thanksgiving. But pumpkins have so much more to offer: sliced and roasted, they’re a sweet foil for rich, savory dishes such as the Afghani dish kaddo bourani, which pairs caramelized pumpkin with spicy ground beef. When baked and mashed, pumpkin purée can be thrown into quick breads, pancakes, and desserts that in no way resemble pie, like the chocolate cake featured below. How to Choose and Store: Small pie or sugar pumpkins are best for cooking. One five-pound pumpkin will yield about 4 ½ cups of purée. Uncut, uncured pumpkins will keep for a couple of months in a cool, dry place. Cooked pumpkin will last about five days in the refrigerator or up to six months in the freezer. How to Cook:

Recipe: French Onion and Mushroom Soup with Bourbon and Swiss Cheese

French Onion and Mushroom Soup with Bourbon and Swiss Cheese

At first glance, chef J. J. Kingery's version of French onion soup appears to be run-of-the-mill bistro fare. But there are some surprises lurking underneath that crunchy and golden blanket of cheese, like earthy mushrooms that have been cooked in sherry, as well as a generous splash of bourbon.
