These are the dishes that represent a place on a plate, they're those classics you just gotta try from Lebanese Lemonade to Portuguese Pineapple Cake, and, of course, our easy, healthy version of those recipes.
Katie Parla knows a thing or two about Rome—having lived and worked there for over 13 years—and she's shared her secrets in the book, Tasting Rome. We asked her about her must-east dishes and she mentioned pastas at Trattoira Da Cesare Al Casaletto so we asked her to share the Cacio e Pepe recipe here.
Roman street food is another level from local faves like porchetta and polpette di bollito to classics like pizza and gelato, you could go days just noshing on it and be more than satisfied. While we were filming the Rome episode of Off Menu we had a hard time deciding what sort of food to celebr...
One of my all-time favorite corners of the world? Definitely the ragged cliffs of the Amalfi Coast and this recipe hails from the Amalfi Coast town of Minori. It's everything we love about Italian desserts—not too sweet, easy to make, yet elegant.
Spring is the unofficial season of brunching, don’t you think? One of my favorite dishes for brunch is this kuku , which is like the Persian cousin to the Italian frittata except that the eggs are a supporting player more than a star. Kuku is one ofthe main dishes made for Nowruz or Persian New Year, which happens the first weekend of Spring.
Biryani deserves some props. It’s an aromatic rice pilaf (aka rice cooked into liquid) that hails from the Indian city of Nawabs, Hyderabad and it's one of the oldest of old-school rice dishes. Though biryanis origins aren’t totally clear, some claim it was first prepared in a royal kitchen durin...
It's almost New Year's Eve, which preceeds my favorite brunching day of the year, New Years Day. For the occasion, I wanted to make something breakfast and brunch appropriate and immediately thought of this Cocoa-Cinnamon Churro French Toast (aka Rabanada). Okay, it's actually a dish that Brazili...
On my last trip to the Caribbean, I knew I'd be all about Saint Martin. From the minute we left, I was counting down the days with anticipation. I mean, it's half Dutch, half French, which means you can have Heinekens and eclairs with the Caribbean at your feet. I was smitten with the pastries, which is what inspired these Mango Eclairs.
When it comes to Austrian sweets, you probably think of strudel-wrapped pastries, marzipan confections, or the iconic Sachertorte. But when I moved to Vienna, these weren’t exactly the treats I craved. To ease my transition into my new life abroad, and to counteract the incredibly chilly and gray weather, I wanted something warm, unfussy, and most of all, über-comforting. It turns out that Kaiserschmarren—essentially a fluffy, shredded pancake—was just the ticket.
When I was traveling in Japan I had some amazing eats—gooey takoyaki, grilled skewers, bowls of ramen. But, after a while, I wanted a good clean meal—enter the chirashi bowl. This is a recipe for a classic Chirashi bowl with brown rice to make it even healthier.
I haven't given Martinis much love around here because I kind of assume we've all been there done that. But, when our friends at Juliska offered up their gorgeous Martini set for a holiday giveaway (details below), it got us rethinking this classic cocktail. Here is a very slight twist on the classic, a Citrus Vodka Martini with a twist.
