Recipes from the Best of the Best: Jeremiah Tower's Mixed Vegetable Ragoût

Jeremiah Tower's recipe for mixed vegetable ragoût

When preparing the dish, chef Tower uses a technique that he learned from Richard Olney: he methodically boils the ingredients separately, then progressively adds them to a simmering stock that's flavored with pearl onions and herbs, ensuring that every vegetable is cooked only for as long as it needs to be.

To wit: this nutty and lightly crispy cauliflower dish, which Romano serves with arctic char. Tiny florets are swiftly sautéed in brown butter, then finished with a fistful of chives, creating a light but full-flavored side that shines next to even the most muscular entrées.
