I was pretty close to letting my Bon Appetit subscription lapse. Before, that is, I got the February issue. It’s perfect. Braises, winter salads, chili…perfect when you’re snowed in at home with the parents and the in-laws. So far I’ve made:
Chili con Carne
Salads with Lemon-Yogurt Dressing
And tonight, it’ll be Thai Spareribs. So far I can recommend them all, though you might just go with chicken thighs on the Portuguese Chicken recipe…the long braise dried out the breast meat.
What’s best is that everyone’s getting along (ample wine and beer were procured pre-storm).
Not from Bon Appetit but also awesome were some fried rice cakes with red dragon sauce (from Momofuku). I added some pan-fried trout filets.
