Three Excellent Recipes from Tom Valenti's You Don't Have to be a Diabetic to Love this Cookbook

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

Do opposites attract in the kitchen the way they do in life? Based on the way asparagus—fresh, crunchy, and green—and mushrooms—earthy, woodsy, and soft—get on in this risotto, you’d have to answer yes. These two ingredients complement each other naturally, without calling attention to their union. There’s nothing revolutionary here, but every mouthful is a study in perfect balance, and I haven’t even mentioned the creamy rice yet.

Monday, December 21, 2009

Serves: 8 to 10

Baking Time: 25 to 35 minutes

 

This unusual old-time recipe was sent to me by chef Anthony Stella, a restaurateur in Delaware, who asked if I could perform a makeover on it. What intrigued both of us about the recipe was that at first glace ...

Monday, December 21, 2009

Serves : 8 to 10

Baking Time: 50 to 60 minutes

 

This unusual cake was inspired by one I tasted in Sweden.

 

During baking, a layer of almond cream and pear sinks almost to the bottom and becomes the top when unmolded. The pear adds luscious moisture to ...

Lidia Bastianich's Sausages in the Skillet

Monday, December 14, 2009

 

(Serves 6)

The Umbrian town of Norcia is, among other distinctions, so famous for the skill of its pork butchers and the quality of their products that the term norcineria throughout Italy designates a shop that purveys pork and pork specialties of the highest quality—and nothing else. This is ...

America's Test Kitchen's Butternut Squash Soup

Monday, December 14, 2009

 

Why This Recipe Works: Butternut squash soup strikes a perfect balance between nuttiness and sweetness. But getting that balance right depends on selecting just a few key ingredients so the sweet squash flavor can take center stage.

We found our answer to intense squash flavor in the squash’s seeds ...

America's Test Kitchen's Foolproof Pie Dough

Monday, December 14, 2009

 

Why This Recipe Works: Unless you’re a practiced pie baker, it’s hard to get the same results every time. While we think our All-Butter Pie Dough (page 560) and Basic Pie Dough (page 558) are great, we wanted a recipe for pie dough that rolls out easily every time ...

America's Test Kitchen's French Chicken in a Pot

Monday, December 14, 2009

 

Why This Recipe Works: Poulet en cocotte (chicken in a pot) is a classic French specialty—at its best, it’s a whole chicken baked with root vegetables in a covered pot that delivers incredibly tender and juicy meat. Sounds simple, but it’s actually more challenging than throwing chicken in a ...

America's Test Kitchen's Best Drop Biscuits

Monday, December 14, 2009

 

Why This Recipe Works: Drop biscuits have many things going for them: a crisp outer crust, a tender, flaky interior, and a simple, no-nonsense method. There’s only one problem—they’re often not very good. Too many are dense, gummy, and doughy or, on the flip side, lean and dry. Drop ...

America's Test Kitchen's French Omelet

Monday, December 14, 2009

 

Why This Recipe Works: In contrast to half-moon diner-style omelets, the French omelet is a pristine rolled affair. The temperature of the pan must be just right, the eggs beaten just so, and hand movements must be swift. We decided to ditch the stuffy attitude and come up with ...

America's Test Kitchen's Prime Rib

Monday, December 14, 2009

 

Why This Recipe Works: Most of us cook prime rib only once a year, if that, and don’t want to risk experimenting with the cooking method—especially when the results are no better than mediocre. We thought that a special-occasion roast deserved better and wanted to find the best way ...

America's Test Kitchen's Skillet Lasagna

Monday, December 14, 2009

 

Why This Recipe Works: Lasagna isn’t usually a dish you can throw together at the last minute. Even with no-boil noodles, it takes a good amount of time to get the components just right. Our goal was to transform traditional baked lasagna into a stovetop skillet dish without losing ...
