In this Thanksgiving edition of our You’re Doing It All Wrong video series, chef and TV host Michael Chiarello extols the benefits of a brined turkey. Avoid some things (have you ever heard of a blivit?) and embrace others (the bird fits perfectly inside a cooler). If you follow the approach Michael outlines here, he guarantees you one of the juiciest turkey dinners you've ever had. See our Turkey Brining Guide for more info and options (dry brining is great if you're short on space), and our Ultimate Guide to Thanksgiving for everything else you need to know.
In this episode of Chow-to, Guillermo visits a Greenwich Village institution for all things English, Tea and Sympathy. He meets with Nicky Perry (owner and founder) to learn her family’s easy recipe for beef shepherd’s pie (which technically in modern British English is a cottage pie). No matter what you call it, this quarantine-friendly comfort dish uses some ingredients you probably already have in your pantry, and will make you feel cozy all year round. This is an excellent way to make something delicious and inexpensive (you only need ground meat, potatoes, carrots and frozen peas!) that will last for a couple of days, making it perfect for cooking during lockdown.
Whether you’re looking for plant-based alternatives to replace conventional chicken or just want to eat a little healthier once in a while, these baked vegan cauliflower bites are incredibly crunchy and delicious—and way better for you than deep-fried poultry (but you’ll never miss the real-thing wings).
A triple dredge in flour, a chia egg, and a spiced corn flake cereal coating means these bake to crunchy perfection on a sheet pan. The tangy vegan buffalo sauce adds another layer of deliciousness. Serve with our Vegan Blue Cheese Sauce for dipping! And don’t forget the celery. Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe and Vegan Blue Cheese Sauce Recipe
