Tequila-Cured Salmon Tostadas

Miguel was served this unique dish in the Mexico City home of Guadalupe Rivera Marín, the daughter of famed muralist Diego Rivera and stepdaughter of artist Frida Kahlo. Miguel was so impressed with the delicious salmon that he requested Guadalupe’s permission to re-create the dish at Fonda San Miguel, where he turned the thin strips of salmon into lovely rosettes. The salmon has to be cured in tequila a full day in advance, but the appetizer goes together quickly once the fish is marinated.
THE ART OF GRILLING PIZZA

THE ART OF GRILLING PIZZA

A Grilled Pizza Party is the perfect way to get your friends, guests or kids involved in dinner! Prepare the pizza dough the day before or purchase prepared pizza dough from your local Pizzeria, Italian market or restaurant. Have each guest stretch the dough, (Don’t worry about perfect round pizzas—these are supposed to be rustic!), throw the dough onto the grill, top it with cheese and toppings and grill away.

WHAT WOULD A FOOTBALL PARTY BE WITHOUT WINGS?

WHAT WOULD A FOOTBALL PARTY BE WITHOUT WINGS?

I love everything about chicken wings; the crispy skin, the dipping sauces and their finger-licking appeal. Buffalo Wings, Szechuan Wings, Teriyaki Wings, BBQ Wings…I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t love wings!

They’re the perfect party food, since you can make large batches and keep them warm in a chafing dish or re-warm them in the oven. You can fry chicken wings, bake them, or grill them, and experiment with an endless array of marinades, sauces and dippers to keep your armchair quarterbacks munching all throughout the game. Here’s a tutorial and some extra tips for making the ultimate wings.

WINTER SQUASH SOUP

This beautiful soup gets added sweetness from the flavors of apple and leek. Serve the soup hot or cold.
ZUCCHINI CAPONATA

ZUCCHINI CAPONATA

While this Italian vegetable dish is usually made with eggplant, I find it’s every bit as delicious when made with zucchini. Caponata is a dip or spread, served cold or warm. It’s a wonderful topping for bruschetta or crostini (thin pieces of an Italian loaf, such as ciabatta or French baguette, slow-toasted till crisp). Or, pile it on toasted pita chips for a true Mediterranean treat.
