Easy Bean Soup By Andrew Zimmern I recently joined the board of directors for an amazing new advocacy group called Beans Is How. The idea: We all need to eat more beans and less of everything else.

Mushroom & Miso Fettuccine

Cool Evenings Call for a Perfect Fall Pasta Dish By Andrew Zimmern If you need to make dinner in 12 minutes, how about a salad and this PERFECT pasta dish?

Stuffed Pepper Tacos

This is the taco of your dreams. By Andrew Zimmern Pan-charred stuffed cheesy peppers make a delicious taco filling, and the charred soft pepper halves still retain their green vegetal quality despite the other ingredients creating an explosion of flavors.

Pasta With Spicy Sausage and Clam Sauce

Pasta With Spicy Sausage and Clam Sauce By Andrew Zimmern Pasta with clams is a once-a-weeker in my home, and whether I put it over linguine or any other shape pasta, it doesn’t matter: the sauce and the noodles are harmonious regardless of what shape you use (though I do like macaroni and orecchiette because…  Read More

Fried Chicken Sandwich

My Favorite Chicken Sandwich of the Moment By Andrew Zimmern I make several versions that everyone in the family loves, and I think this one is my current favorite.

Sweet Pea Penne Carbonara

Sweet Pea Penne Carbonara By Andrew Zimmern So a few weeks ago I was making my sweet pea risotto for dinner and thought, what about a sweet pea carbonara?

Hong Kong Style Soy Sauce Noodles

One of My Favorite Easy Weeknight Meals By Andrew Zimmern Way out on Causeway Bay in Hong Kong, I ate in a middling restaurant pretty frequently before it closed.

Andrew Zimmern Recipe Aligot Potatoes

Aligot Potatoes

Aligot (Cheesy Potatoes) By Andrew Zimmern Some classic dishes are cooked less and less these days which surprises me on two fronts. First off, classics are classics for a reason.  And secondly, some of these classics are so simple. If you love cheese enriched potatoes, you will love aligot, a classic French recipe from Aubrac. Have…  Read More

Andrew Zimmern Recipe Korean Fried Chicken

Korean Fried Chicken

Maybe my best fried chicken recipe ever. By Andrew Zimmern Monday night I made my Korean Fried Chicken, in a new style, a combination of techniques that I think gave me the best of two worlds.

Easy Black Pepper Beef

A superbly easy, timeless family favorite. By Andrew Zimmern I love this dish. I’ve been making it for years and long ago hybridized it with my beef with snow peas and oyster sauce recipe.

Andrew Zimmern Recipe Chopped Cheese Sandwich

Chopped Cheese Sandwich

I ate a lot of chopped cheese sandwiches as a kid growing up. You’d find them in nooks and crannies of the city, in bodegas in the Bronx. It’s like a cheesesteak but made with hamburger meat and slices of American cheese. I like hot peppers in mine and skip the condiments, but feel free…  Read More

Japchae with Beef and Vegetables

Japchae with Beef and Vegetables By Andrew Zimmern Korean food is bound to the earth. Their culture understands wellness, health, and diet are indispensably tied together.

Andrew Zimmern Recipe Cucumber Chili Crisp Salad

Spicy Sweet Cucumber Salad

Chili crisp is the “it” ingredient of the moment. I make my own in two-gallon batches because we use so much of it when we are cooking for events and recipe testing in our kitchen studio. I like versions that are loaded with sweet spices (cinnamon/star anise, etc) and Sichuan peppercorns. I put it on…  Read More

Andrew Zimmern Crispy Shrimp Toast Sandwich

Crispy Shrimp Toast Sandwiches

I’ve been making versions of this shrimp toast recipe for years. To my surprise I have never ever made them “covered” with two pieces of bread surrounding the shrimp mixture!

I love noodles —  and anything in the onion family. By Andrew Zimmern This week, piles of scallions, spring onions, garlic chives, chives, leeks and ramps are flooding local markets.

Andrew Zimmern Recipe Shrimp Po Boy

Garlic Butter Shrimp Po’Boy

Garlic Butter Shrimp Po’Boy By Andrew Zimmern I must be craving sandwiches these days (see: pizza sandwich, fried pork cutlet po’boy, birria torta ahogada, meatball sliders, lobster rolls…), so it only seems fitting that I decided to stuff a garlicky, buttery shrimp scampi-like concoction between bread and call it a po’boy. This one comes together…  Read More

The Ultimate Pizza Sandwich

Mortadella & Prosciutto Pizza Sandwich By Andrew Zimmern This, my friends, is the epic Italian hero of my dreams.

Sheet Pan Chorizo Nachos

Chicken Tikka Masala

Chicken Tikka Masala By Andrew Zimmern This creamy, tomato-based, richly spiced curry has been a stalwart in my house for decades.

Andrew Zimmern Recipe Banana Bread

Banana Bread, But Better

It’s heavier and denser, with a crumb that’s pretty standard on the upper half but denser on the bottom. It’s how I like it. I was tired of tea cake banana breads or finely crumbed versions that didn’t deliver on the big banana flavor and brown sugar molasses vibes. This one suits me just perfectly.…  Read More
