We're excited to announce our partnership 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 share 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.

In this week's video, senior editor Elena North-Kelly demonstrates how to prepare Top Chef guest judge and JBF Award winner Hugh Acheson's hearty and delicious shaved Brussels sprout salad. As Acheson puts it, “Look, Brussels sprouts get a bad name. Most of the bad rap comes from being forced to eat drastically overcooked, mushy, under seasoned versions when we were young. This will open your eyes to the wonderful side of a maligned vegetable. You won’t have to hide them in your napkin ever again.” With the salty bite from shaved Pecorino and the satisfying crunch of roasted peanuts, we couldn't agree more. Watch the video below to learn how to make it yourself!
