This holiday episode of My Go-To Dish features Gabrielle Hamilton, bestselling author and chef-owner of Prune restaurant in New York City. Her traditional Christmas Eve meal is simple: homemade minestrone soup, grilled cheese sandwiches, and high-end champagne. To make her go-to meal your own, see the recipe.
Here's the ultimate, savory weeknight meal for your family. Extra-lean ground beef (which sometimes cooks up dry) works well here because it's combined with marinara to keep it moist.
Easy Crab Cakes
Crab cakes are so often disappointing -- mushy or gummy, full of starchy filler. But these easy cakes are full of beautiful lump crabmeat, and a light panko coating ensures they fry up crispy and golden brown. Bright, lemony aioli makes a piquant counterpart to the sweet, sweet crab.
We get a better look inside a Williamsburg restaurant. Chef Connolly gets a little hand in the kitchen at Rider.
