This dish was on the menu in a little restaurant called La Gondola in one of the roughest parts of Palermo. I thought the combination of flavors was great, and very accessible to us back home in Britain. You can buy very high-quality frozen shrimp in supermarkets these days, so it?s a win-win situation, but if you can get hold of some super-fresh ones and peel them yourself this can all of a sudden become very luxurious in flavor. A real crowd-pleaser. Finish off with good-quality olive oil and wild arugula full of flavor and you?ll be laughing. PS If using frozen shrimp, make sure they?re thawed out.

This recipe for Hungarian varga strudel cake or vargabeles is unusual in that a strudel dough base is topped with a mixture of sauteed noodles, cottage cheese, eggs, sugar, raisins and sour cream. It's from George Lang's Cuisine of Hungary (Wings Books, 1994). Lang says some cooks place the noodle filling between multiple layers of strudel dough like a lasagna, while others roll the strudel dough around the noodle filling as for any other strudel. Makes 8 servings of Hungarian Varga Strudel Cake or Vargabeles

Ice cream in January? Are we crazy? Yes, we know that it's in the low teens outside and although the sun is shining here, it's still very, very cold outside. So ice cream may seem utterly unseasonal of us - it's just that this ice cream is one of our favorites and it's made from still seasonal cranberries. We love the tart pop of scarlet cranberries in this rich custard ice cream, side-by-side with shiny chunks of dark chocolate that melt on the tongue. This combination was inspired by one of our favorite ice cream parlors...
When pastry chef Deborah Racicot makes her fluffy cinnamon rolls at New York City's Gotham Bar and Grill, her customers go insane for them.

These Thai Fried Ribs are very easy to make and, unlike most deep fried ribs that I've tried, these are wonderfully full of flavor. The special Thai marinade is what does it -- a special concoction of coriander (cilantro) and garlic that is whipped up in just minutes. And there's no messy beaten eggs or other liquids to dip into - just the simple marinade, then roll in flour. So easy, so wonderful! No wonder ribs are such a popular street food in Thailand.
This condiment, bright in color and flavor, takes just minutes to make. It combines sweet coconut, peppery cilantro, and a bit of chile heat to create a chutney worthy of pairing with our Shrimp Masala.
Top Chef 2 contender Marisa Churchill learned a lot from her yaya, including how to make dolmathes with avgolemono, a lemony egg sauce (and often a soup) common in Greek cuisine. Marisa’s yaya makes the sauce a little eggier than our version, but since it takes the expertise and careful hand of an experienced yaya not to curdle it, we’ve added a little extra liquid, which is common. What to buy: Grape leaves can be found in jars in many gourmet and specialty stores. This recipe was featured as part of our Greek Easter Celebration menu.
