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.

Don’t be daunted by the term “gastrique” in this recipe—this bright, fruity sauce is simply a matter of letting apple cider reduce to a soft syrup, which you can do while pulling together the rest of this elegant yet simple weeknight meal. Featuring tender seared scallops, root vegetables, and Brussels sprouts, this all-in-one dish gives you the flavors of winter without weighing you down. Watch the video below, as JBF assistant to the director of house programming Elizabeth Laseter demonstrates how to prepare this perfectly balanced entrée. To make this recipe at home, order it from Chef'd and they'll ship you a box with all the ingredients you'll need!
