In honor of episode 3 of Chef Out of Water, I recreated one of the dishes I made with a rice cooker. You could use a chicken instead of Cornish hens (they’ll just need more time in the oven), and a thinly sliced yellow onion instead of pearl onions. ⁣Link in bio! •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ Servings: 2⁣ ⁣ Two 2-pound Cornish game hens⁣ 3 teaspoons kosher salt⁣ 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper⁣ 1 tablespoon smoked paprika⁣ 2 teaspoons cumin⁣ 2 teaspoons ground coriander⁣ 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided⁣ 1 pound golden pearl onions, peeled⁣ ¼ cup dry white wine⁣ 1 lemon, quartered⁣ ¼ cup finely chopped parsley⁣ ⁣ Preheat oven to 425˚F.⁣ Blot the Cornish game hens well with paper towels. ⁣ In a small bowl, combine the salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, and coriander. ⁣ Generously coat the Cornish game hens in the spice mixture. Truss the hens, or tie the legs together with kitchen twine. ⁣ Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the two hens.⁣ In a large stainless steel or cast iron skillet, heat the remaining olive oil over medium high heat until it begins to shimmer. Add the pearl onions and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, until the onions have some charred and golden brown parts.⁣ Add the white wine and cook, scraping up any brown bits, for 3 minutes. ⁣ Place the hens and quartered lemon on top of the pearl onions.⁣ Transfer to the oven and roast for 45 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165˚F. ⁣ Let rest for 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with parsley.

Took advantage of the last peaches of the season with this stunner. ⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ Dough⁣ 2½ cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting⁣ 1 teaspoon kosher salt⁣ 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, cold, cubed⁣ ¼ cup apple cider vinegar, cold⁣ ⁣ Filling⁣ ¾ cup sugar⁣ ¼ cup all-purpose flour⁣ ½ teaspoon kosher salt⁣ 1 vanilla bean pod, scraped⁣ 1-inch knob ginger, peeled, minced ⁣ Zest and juice of 1 lime⁣ 6 large peaches, peeled, sliced ⁣ Egg wash⁣ Sugar⁣ ⁣ In a large bowl, add the flour, salt, and butter and use your hands to break the butter up into lima bean-size pieces.⁣ Add the apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing with your hands until a shaggy dough forms.⁣ Turn the dough onto a clean surface and divide into two equal parts. Shape the dough into two discs and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. ⁣ Preheat oven to 400˚F.⁣ Meanwhile, add the sugar, flour, salt, vanilla, ginger, lime zest and juice to a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add the peaches and stir until fully coated.⁣ On a lightly floured surface, place one of the dough discs, flouring as needed to prevent sticking, and roll out to ¼-inch thick and at least 2 inches bigger than a pie plate. Transfer to a parchment paper-covered baking sheet and chill until ready to use.⁣ Repeat with remaining dough.⁣ Place the first chilled dough into a pie dish, letting the excess dough hang over the edges. Add the peach filling to the pie dough.⁣ Refrigerate the pie while you cut out your lattice pattern of choice. Keeping your dough as cold as possiblem is crucial. ⁣ Working quickly, top the chilled pie with your lattice design. Crimp the edges. Brush with the egg wash, and sprinkle with sugar. ⁣ Bake for 20 minutes.⁣ Turn the heat down to 350˚F and bake for an additional 1 hour and 30 minutes, until the crust is a deep golden brown and the fruit is bubbling. ⁣ Let cool for at least 3 hours before serving.

Made a chicken. Make stock from the chicken. Soaked dried pinto beans. Cooked pinto beans in the chicken stock. Saved bean liquid/stock for future soup. Tossed beans with sausage, red wine vinegar, olive oil, garlic, sausage, scallions (some cooked, some raw), and lots of parsley. Wore my new @hedleyandbennett smock the whole time and decided I’m never taking it off. Ate beans in smock straight out of the bowl.

The joy of a grand aioli is that you can serve it with pretty much anything you’d like. After a week of eating cheese, @rebekahpeppler and I opted for a veg-forward version. You could also add in poached shrimp, endives, haricot vert, snap peas, crab, and some peeled carrots, stems intact. •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ Makes 1 cup ⁣aioli ⁣ 2 egg yolks⁣ 1 clove garlic, grated⁣ 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard⁣ 1/2 cup grapeseed oil⁣ 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil⁣ 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt⁣ 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper⁣ Juice of 1 lemon⁣ ⁣ In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, garlic, and mustard until smooth. ⁣ Add one drop grapeseed oil and whisk to combine. Continue adding the grapeseed oil, drop by drop, until the mixture begins to thicken and emulsify. ⁣ Add the remaining grapeseed oil in a slow but steady stream, whisking simultaneously to combine. The mixture should be thick and glossy. ⁣ Add the olive oil in a slow but steady stream, while continuing to whisk. ⁣ Add the salt and pepper and whisk to combine. ⁣ Add the lemon juice in 1 teaspoon increments until the aioli is thick and pale yellow. ⁣ Adjust seasonings to taste.

The second best thing to duck breast with crispy, crackly skin, is getting to make duck fat smashed potatoes with the pan drippings. • • • • • Servings 2-4 2 tablespoons coriander seeds 1 tablespoon kosher salt 3 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper 2 duck breasts (mine are from @dartagnanfoods) 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 pound fingerling potatoes, cooked until barely fork-tender Preheat oven to 425F. Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Once hot, add the coriander seeds and cook until fragrant and toasted, 1-2 minutes. Let cool to room temperature. Grind the coriander seeds with a mortar and pestle or spice grinder, then mix with the salt and pepper. Blot the duck breasts dry with paper towels. Use a knife to score the skin with diagonal cuts. Season the duck breast with the coriander mixture. Heat a large stainless steel or cast iron pan over medium high heat and add the olive oil. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the duck breast, skin side down, and cook undisturbed for 7-9 minutes, until the skin is crispy and fat has rendered. Flip the duck breast over and continue to cook for 7-9 minutes, until the duck has cooked through, and the internal temperature is 170F. Remove the duck and let rest on a cutting board tented with aluminum foil. Place the potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet and smash down with a flat bottomed surface. Pour the duck fat over the potatoes and roast until browned and crispy, 30-40 minutes.

This pasta has everything I love. Garlic! Breadcrumbs! Anchovies (no, you don’t taste them, yes they are delicious)! Parm! Oh, and it takes about 30 minutes to come together. • • • • • Servings: 4-6 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 10 anchovies, finely chopped, divided ½ cup panko bread crumbs ½ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil 6 cloves garlic, minced ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes 2 pints cherry tomatoes, halved 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste 1 cup white wine 1 pound spaghetti, cooked to al dente ¼ cup pasta cooking water 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil Pinch of salt Add the butter to a large skillet over medium heat. Once the butter melts, add 4 of the chopped anchovies and cook for 1 minute, until they begin to melt. Add the panko bread crumbs and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until golden brown. Transfer the bread crumbs to a bowl and let cool to room temperature. Once cooled, toss with the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the remaining 6 anchovies and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until the anchovies begin to melt into the oil. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add the tomatoes and stir to coat in the oil. Season with 1 teaspoon of salt and cook for 5 minutes, or until the tomatoes just begin to soften. Add the white wine and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the sauce is reduced by half. Add cooked pasta and reserved cooking water to the pot with the tomatoes and stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute, until the pasta is well-coated and saucy. Serve the pasta in large bowls topped with the anchovy breadcrumbs.

There’s been an excess of extra yolks in the test kitchen the last few weeks, so in an effort not to be wasteful I made some salt-cured egg yolks. You can grate them over pasta, risotto, salad, whatever you want really. They add a salty, umami flavor, kind of like a vegetarian bottarga. • • • • • You can cure them in just salt, or a sugar/salt combo. Leave them submerged in a sealed container for at least 4 days (the longer you let them sit the harder the yolks will become). Rinse with water and dehydrate in a low oven until dried out. You can use them for up to a month stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

This bacon & cheddar strata was my contribution to @heyhannahkate’s Easter brunch, but it’s really something you could (and should) make all year round. You can do any combination of fillings (sausage! kale! gruyère! corn!) just make sure you keep the proportions roughly the same. • • • • • Serves 8-10 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 8 cups sourdough bread, cubed 8 ounces bacon, cut into half-inch pieces 1 medium yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced into half moons 1 teaspoon thyme, chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced 9 large eggs 2¾ cups whole milk 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 2 teaspoons salt 1 teaspoon black pepper 2 cups cheddar cheese, grated 1 cup scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced 1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. 2. Butter a 13 x 9-inch baking dish and add the cubed bread. 3. Add the bacon to a medium skillet and cook over medium-high heat until crispy, 5-7 minutes. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Add onion, garlic, and thyme to the bacon fat and cook over medium heat for 4-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions have softened. 4. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper. Add the bacon, cheddar cheese, and scallions and stir to combine. Pour the egg mixture over the bread in the baking dish and transfer to the fridge to chill for at least 2 hours, up to overnight. 5. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, until golden.

This spring-inspired pasta has my ideal ricotta to everything else ratio, and came together from assorted leftover groceries from work. There’s no real recipe, and you can tweak it a hundred ways. Want to add another vegetable? I’m sure it’ll still be good. Don’t eat meat? Leave the kielbasa out. Hate peas? Not a problem. • • • • • Cook pasta - I used spaghetti - three minutes shy of al dente. Add as many as peas as you see fit. I used half a bag of frozen peas. Fresh are great too. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water. Cook sliced kielbasa until browned. Remove and add sliced asparagus. Cook until just starting to soften. Add the garlic and stir for one minute. I added pepper flakes, salt, and pepper here. Add the kielbasa back and stir. Add in a handful of basil, cooked pasta and peas, along with a good splash of the reserved pasta water and stir to combine. To serve, top with a heap of ricotta (i had goat milk ricotta that was made for a shoot yesterday), drizzle with good olive oil (i like @wearebrightland), and sprinkle with flaky salt (like @jacobsensaltco or @maldonsalt).

Be warned, when you make beignets everyone around you will stare wistfully in the distance and sigh, “it’s almost like we’re back in New Orleans.” Every. Single. One. Recipe below, and you can watch a step by step of the process in my highlights! • • • • • Makes 30 beignets ¾ cup water, warm to the touch 3½ teaspoons active dry yeast (1½ packets) 2 eggs ½ cup whole milk 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 6 tablespoons sugar 4 cups bread flour, plus extra for dusting ½ teaspoon kosher salt 8 cups canola oil, to fry Powdered sugar, to serve In a large glass measuring cup or medium bowl, add the water and sprinkle the yeast over top. Let bloom for 5 minutes. Add the eggs, milk, butter, and sugar, and whisk to combine. In a large bowl, add the flour and salt and whisk to combine. Pour the liquid ingredients over the flour and use a rubber spatula to combine a shaggy dough forms. Use your hands to knead the dough for 2 minutes, until it comes together in a smooth ball. Transfer the dough to a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm spot for 1 hour, or until doubled in size. Punch the dough down using your fist, and turn out onto a lightly floured, clean surface. Roll the dough into a 14 x 18-inch rectangle, about ¼-inch thick . Cut the dough into 2x2-inch squares using a knife, and transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Reroll remaining dough and repeat until all the dough is used. Heat the oil in a large pot to 350˚F (180˚C). Add the beignets, 3-4 at a time. As soon as the beignets puff up, use tongs or a spider to gently flip the beignets over. Fry for 2-3 minutes, flipping occasionally, until golden brown. Transfer the beignets to a wire rack to drain. Dust with powdered sugar to serve.
