Hot days like today call for cold drinks. Check out this recipe for an all local cocktail called the Local Berry Rosado, which is served at Nick and Toni’s in Manhattan and features vodka from Finger Lakes Distilling–one of New York state’s first small-batch spirits startups.
There’s so much we didn’t get to tell you during this week’s NY1 segment on Clinton Street Baking Co.’s February Pancake Month. We were so busy telling you the genesis of chef Neil Kleinberg’s superior whipped egg white pancake recipe, that we didn’t get to talk about the toppings, which change every few days until the 29th, or their cookbook, which was named one of the best of the year by the Times last year and was shot by none other than our former photo editor, the talented Michael Harlan Turkell. This recipe below, for Caramelized Apples and Pears with Praline and Cinnamon from the Clinton Street Baking Co. Cookbook, can help illustrate both.
At last, the final recipe for the five cocktails that made it through the preliminary round of judging for our Great King Street Cocktail Competition. As…
Today on our weekly segment on NY1, we asked Huang to show us two traditional dishes his family will make at home on the first morning of the year: vegetarian longevity noodles and a whole steamed fish.
Here’s recipe four from the five cocktails that made it through the preliminary round of judging for our Great King Street Cocktail Competition; we asked local professional mixologists to submit seasonal recipes using Compass Box Whisky Company’s new blend made for drink-making. This one is the Great King’s Kir, made with casses and Central Park Honey by Marci Noble at Nick and Toni’s Cafe. Noble will actually be competing against one of her colleagues, Richard Scoffier, who will be making his Newfangled.
Here’s recipe three from the five cocktails that made it through the preliminary round of judging for our Great King Street Cocktail Competition; we asked local professional mixologists to submit seasonal recipes using Compass Box Whisky Company’s new blend made for drink-making. This one is the McQueen, from John McCarthy at Mary Queen of Scots. Having tasted the majority of the original entries, we have to say this one was one of our favorites thanks to the earthy, smoky notes provided by mainly by that mezcal.
Enough of you have asked about the incredible macaroni and cheese (five kinds of the latter) our editor in chief was talking about on Tuesday that we figured we should score you the recipe. It’s from Home Cooking with Jean-Georges: My Favorite Simple Recipes, which chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten published just last fall. Turns out it’s actually a dish created by his wife, Marja, who has her own TV show and cookbook out called The Kimchi Chronicles (she’s also Korean). Writes Vongerichten in the headnote: “This is one of the most requested dishes in my home, especially when we have children over.
Below is the recipe for the Newfangled (a riff on the Old Fashioned?) from Richard Scoffier at Nick and Toni’s Cafe. If you don’t know American Spirits’ eaux de vies and fruit liqueurs made upstate, this is a fine introduction, and easy to make at home, unlike some of the other Great King Street Cocktail contest entries. We’ll be publishing more of those each day this week, so stay tuned until the winners get crowned next Monday.
As promised yesterday, we scored recipes for each of the five cocktails that made it through the preliminary round of judging for our Great King Street Cocktail Competition. It’s something we’re running in conjunction with Compass Box Whisky Company: Great King Street is their brand new Scotch blend designed for making drinks; so we asked local professional mixologists to submit seasonal recipes.
Not only does this recipe call for butter, milk, half-and-half, and heavy cream, it of course deploys plenty of cheese—three types of cheddar plus Monterey Jack. But the crowning glory is, get this, cream cheese. After throwing everything else together—oops I mean assembling the layers—you dot the top with little blobs of cream cheese, which, once baked, become the best part of the dish. The recipe calls for four ounces, but I just might double that next time.
These are the literal salad days of the year–meaning the ones when all the tabloids talk up their dieting hotlines and 16 six steps to a perfect bathing suit bod, to the salads and smoothies that are the perfect antidote to all that holiday roast beef and whiskey-kicked egg nog. We were never that keen on dieting in the new year–cassoulet season comes but once, after all–but salad is something we can get behind any time. And with all due respect to tomatoes and sweet corn, we’ve always been partial to the ones that appear when it’s frigid. When the crunch of radish and fennel bulb and kohlrabi start making it into the bowl, you might lose a little color, but gain texture in in spades.
You might recall that way back in April–when Spring foods were just beginning to appear–we sent out a call to Manhattan’s professional mixologists to…
