I'm trying to organize a dinner for about 20 young adults. Preferably a place that offers a private room, but won't cost us an arm and a leg. There will be some vegetarians in the mix, so good veggie-food is a must!
We give quick-cooking orzo pasta the risotto treatment—toasting the grains first, then slowly incorporating hot liquid until creamy and starchy—for a comforting "orzotto." The rich egg yolk ties it all together.
The trick to perfect scallops is to leave them alone once they hit the pan—they’ll stick to the skillet at first then release once they sear. If you prefer less heat, use just one Fresno chile and remove the seeds before adding to the pan.
