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

It’s unfair how little presence Iranian food has in the restaurant world. A cuisine as sophisticated and influential deserves the spotlight, and food explorers should have the opportunity to try Persian flavors and ingredients in all their glory. In this episode, Guillermo visits Sofreh in Brooklyn, and meets chef and owner Nasim Alikhani, to learn how to make her version of a traditional North Iranian bean and dill stew (baghali ghatogh). This recipe makes it easy for home cooks to introduce Iranian flavors and techniques into their kitchens.
Move over chickpea stew! This hearty dish has the potential to become the next "It" recipe. The stew is completely vegan, and with the addition of a poached egg on top, you can make this a crowd-pleaser.
Cacio e pepe is a social media sensation. Everywhere you look, there are live-action pasta lifts of creamy, pepper-flecked, twirl-worthy mounds of this classic pasta dish. But this "new" foodie fodder is actually rooted in ancient Roman cuisine. To learn how to make this marvel from scratch, Guillermo travels to New York’s Seaport district to meet with world renowned chef Jordan Frosolone, and learn how he makes his “Best of NYC” (an honor bestowed by New York Magazine) dish. Chef Jordan is currently the executive chef at 10 Corso Como, an imported Italian restaurant/gallery concept that has become a celebrity darling since its opening last year. From its kitchen he shows Guillermo how to make pasta from scratch the traditional way, and how to successfully make this incredibly simple dish, that just requires precision and attention to detail.
Contrary to popular belief, May 5th is not Mexican Independence Day. What Cinco de Mayo actually celebrates is the victory of the Mexican army against the French during the Battle of Puebla in 1862.
The holiday in the U.S. with time has become a celebration of Mexican-American culture, and drinking tequila. While it’s fun to indulge in tacos and margaritas, Guillermo decided to visit Casa Publica in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to learn how to make Puebla's most traditional recipe, mole.
