    This authentic Italian pasta dish is perfect for weeknight cooking | Food

    In so many ways, food defines cultures and brings people together. A well-prepared meal can transport me to its country of origin in much the same way music and art can. However, the elemental effects of food can literally be felt in the gut. Of all the world’s foods, dishes inspired by Italy’s La Cucina Italiana are my favorites to prepare at home. I like the simplicity of La Cucina Italiana, which tends to focus on allowing a few excellent ingredients to shine, especially produce, in its dishes. Because Italy is a country with long food traditions made up of   Read More

    A love letter to scallops, the world’s most perfect food

    Over the years, I have decided that scallops are a favorite special occasion food that doesn’t, as it turns out, require too much work to make delectable. Before this realization I was kind of lukewarm when it came to these bivalves. The truth is—and I say this to everyone, so forgive me if you’ve heard it before—that anything we really don’t like is probably a food scar. Someone prepared the thing poorly, often under- or over cooking it, and it is up to us to come to terms with that reality and charge forward: brave and hopeful that there can   Read More

    These offerings are perfect for stay-at-home New Year’s celebration

    There’s a lot I miss about my usual holiday shindigs this December. No sipping eggnog in red lipstick and spangles, no parking myself in front of platters of camembert and Stilton, not even any sleeves of Ritz crackers with that unidentifiable orange cheese spread I look forward to year after year. But while there won’t be any parties, there will still be festive snacks and plenty of them. My plan for a grand but small-scale New Year’s Eve celebration is to make an array of fun, tasty bites to nibble on throughout the evening — and if things get wild   Read More

    7 Vegetarian Chinese Recipes That Are Perfect for Healthy Weeknight Dinners

    One of the perks of cooking at home is getting to control exactly what’s in your meals—and that’s especially beneficial if you’re vegetarian.

And it’s time to give these dishes some love. Rounded up here are vegetarian Chinese food recipes to try at home, from dishes that are naturally plant-based to veggie-fied versions of your favorite takeout   Read More

    Turkey or nut roast? Felicity Cloake’s perfect Christmas dinner recipes | Christmas food and drink

    While there are people who see Christmas time as an opportunity to try out new and exciting recipes, my family is not among them. We have roast turkey only once a year, which means it’s always a big, bronzed, buttery treat – why would we want to change? That said, I’m always tempted to make a sneaky nut roast as well; another unfairly under-rated dish that’s just as good with sauteed sprouts, cranberry sauce and all the other delicious festive sides that I’ll never tire of. If you’re similarly inclined, here’s a handy guide to the season’s greatest hits.  Read More
