In my everlasting quest to make the perfect pizza, it’s always been about the dough. I’ve made hundreds of pies, each time striving for the balance of good structure, depth of flavor, and workability. The outcomes have ranged from revelatory to disastrous, but I’m assured—save a few singed eyebrows and flour-coated jeans—that no one has been harmed by the experimentation. From cracker-thin, high-gluten crusts with a gratifying crunch to pillowy, pliable pies that rise and fall with the heat, the permutations of just a few simple ingredients are seemingly endless.
Summer produce abounds, and this recipe is the perfect way to highlight the season’s young potatoes.
The first truffles of the season passed through my hands just days ago, and I could not resist. These redolent fungi captivate me and I needed my own magnificent mushroom to play with!
The heat of summer is finally over! While that does mean the end of berries, lemonade and cobblers, the season of pumpkins, mulled cider and, of course, apple pie is now in full swing.
We are devotees of legendary grillmaster and renowned chef, Chris Schlesinger. Here, he shares with us his recipe for “Clams in Chile-Butter Sauce,” featuring a local delicacy – littleneck clams.
This recipe for “Mussels with Mango Curry Sauce” was one that Chris Schlesinger used in his “Seafood Grilling” class – he kindly gave us permission to share this glorious recipe as we savor the last days of summer!
