A recipe for Gnocchi with Rabbit and Golden Ale Ragoût from the James Beard Foundation

While parting with summer is never easy, milder days mean that we can comfortably cook in our kitchens again. What better way to cope? It also means we've been busier than ever testing recipes from Beard House guest chefs. Here's the best of the September crop: Gnocchi with Rabbit and Golden Ale Ragoût Comforting and scrumptious, meals like this make us hungry for fall.

Eat this Word: Lotus Root

lotus rootWHAT? Lies beneath lilies. Lotus (or water lily) flowers have been prized for their beauty for thousands of years, but below the water is another prize, the edible rhizomes, which are often mistakenly called roots. (Ginger is another type of rhizome.) Lotuses grow wild throughout mainland Asia and were introduced to Japan by China. Light in color, long, and cylindrical, when sliced the lotus root reveals a fibrous, tart flesh with a lovely lacy pattern of holes. Lotus is eaten throughout Asia. It can be blanched or steamed, served cold in salad or hot in soup, pickled, fried for tempura, stir-fried, or braised. WHERE? Shin Thompson's Beard House dinner WHEN? October 12, 2010 HOW?
