We've partnered with Simmer, a new app that allows you to generate step-by-step recipe videos that you can create, watch, and share from your very own kitchen. In the coming weeks and months, we'll continue sharing instructional videos that will teach you how to create tantalizing dishes from JBF Award winners, Beard House chefs, and even Beard himself, all prepared in James Beard's historic New York City kitchen.

If you crave soups, stews, and braises during the colder months like we do, look no further than James Beard’s mouthwatering salmon braised in red wine. A simple yet deeply flavored dish, it’s quickly becoming our new go-to recipe for satisfying, simple meals. With a base of vegetables like aromatic leeks, sweet carrots, and bright celery, the red wine–laced broth infuses the salmon during its time in the oven as the fish becomes impossibly tender. And with a side of mushrooms browned in butter to bring out their earthiness and delicate sautéed pearl onions, this elegant dish can work well as a casual weeknight meal or can be served at your next dinner party. Watch the step-by-step video below as director of house operations and events Victoria Jordan Rodriguez welcomes you to the wonderful world of braised foods.
