Recipe: Duck Confit Salad

Preparing duck confit is a quick way to tell everyone you know your way around the kitchen, and an even quicker way to put on a few pounds. It was developed by the French, and mastered by Chef Peter Droste. Here is his take on the classic cooking style.

Brain-rattling bacon from The Forge in Miami

Recipe: Jamaican Jerk Bacon

Bacon doesn’t need to be fixed. And so it’s with some reluctance that we offer a recipe for making your own bacon, particularly one that requires two days, five different cooking techniques and more than ten ingredients. But once you’ve tasted chef Christopher Lee’s Jamaican jerk bacon with tropical salsa at The Forge in Miami, Florida, you’ll be spending plenty of quality time with swine belly and Jimmy Buffet’s fifteenth album, Floridays.

In the Kitchen with Chef Hervé Malivert

High Pressure: Cooking Sous Vide with a Master

We’ve come to the ICC in New York specifically to meet with Malivert, a native of the Rhône region of France and the man who oversees anything having to do with centrifuges and liquid nitrogen. His knowledge of food and cooking is apparent. He’s both professor and craftsman, dressed in a crisp white uniform and tall chef’s toque, presenting eloquently about sous vide cooking while simultaneously demonstrating.

Carving a Winner

The Perfect Thanksgiving Turkey

The Thanksgiving turkey is the one dish each year that’s make or break, and it’s all yours. Get the turkey right and you’ll be giving warm handshakes and sipping bourbon all night; dry it out and you’ve brought a dark cloud over the extended family. The good news is, roasting the big bird is easier than running the fumblerooski against the in-laws — and that works every year. To find the most direct route to turkey perfection, we consulted with chef Harold Moore for his foolproof recipe.

Destination Dinners Recipe Kits

The biggest bone we have to pick with Food Network personalities — or any telegenic chef for that matter — is how much easier cooking looks when their ingredients are already on hand and nicely organized by an army of production minions. “Now just take seven- and-a-half peeled edamame beans wrapped in pancetta and mix…
