What to Cook

The Best Alfredo & 6 Other Recipes We’re Cooking This Week

Welcome to What We’re Cooking This Week, a weekly love letter from our recipe developer Emma Laperruque, all about what the Food52 team is cooking and craving off-hours (with a few snacks for thought, too). I’m eight seasons behind in Grey’s Anatomy. Which is to say, I started watching the show when everyone else did, then dumped it sometime in college when I became convinced that my own problems (bad grades, difficult friends, dead cats, boys who didn’t love me) were more engrossing than fictional plotlines.

A Quick, Comforting Instant Pot Soup You Can Set & Forget

Welcome to Set It & Forget It, a new series about all the ways we rely on our slow cookers, Instant Pots, and ovens during the colder months. Whether it’s a long braise on the stove or a quick burst in the pressure cooker, one thing’s for sure: Comfort food means comfort cooking. In the 18 years that I spent going to public school in Fulton County, Georgia, I ate my fair share of cafeteria lunches. In fact, I hardly ever packed my own lunch, and neither did my parents, who worked full-time at a beeper store on Buford Highway. This meant that I had the cafeteria menu memorized, and knew exactly which day to fill up on breakfast (because it was mystery-meat sloppy joe day) and when to leave room (because it was grilled cheese and soup day).

The Best Marcella Hazan Pasta Is Actually One You’ve Never Heard Of

A few things you should know about me:
I love a pasta trick, whether it pertains to a plating strategy, boiling techniques, or an especially clever sauce idea.

Waiting for dinner to cook after a long day at work makes me irrationally cranky and typically results in such aggressive snacking that I’m no longer hungry.

There’s always at least one can of tuna, packed in olive oil, hanging out in my pantry.
So I consider Marcella Hazan’s lesser-known brilliant recipe—not that I don’t love that other one!—for fettuccine col sugo di tonno con aglio e panna to be something of a trifecta. Read More >> …

15 Best Meal Delivery Services for Off-Duty Weeknights

I’m not the best cook. Nothing I make tastes bad, but I tend to cook a variation of the same dinner every night, aka, my weeknights are a recurring bowl of whole grains, vegetables, and lean meat like ground turkey. This is the case for a few reasons. I like to eat a balanced meal on weekdays so that I can indulge on weekends. Plus, once I mastered this single easy, delicious meal, I decided to stick with it. It saves me time in the grocery store, and in the kitchen, because I know exactly what to buy—and how to make it. Read More >> …

How to Cook a Turkey (& None of That Other Mumbo Jumbo)

There are a thousand ways to cook a turkey. Just Google it: how to cook a turkey. You’ll find that some swear by a wet brine; many, especially these days, swear by a dry brine. 500°F is a favorite oven temperature for roast turkey here at Food52 (hi, Judy), while others vouch for a lower, steadier heat, closer to 350°F or 375°F. Regardless of how you choose to roast a turkey this Thanksgiving, Senior Editor Eric Kim is here to show you his favorite way to do it—from a home cook’s perspective—and it’s a lot simpler than you’d think. Growing up in Georgia, Thanksgiving for me meant driving a couple hours south to my Aunt Joy’s house in Augusta. We’d arrive Wednesday night and stay up late playing video games with the cousins. First thing the next morning, at around 4 or 5 a.m., my mom and aunt would put the bird in the oven…

How to Make Pumpkin Pie Spice at Home

Picture this: It’s the weekend and you’re baking a pie, not because you have company coming over, just for fun. You’re wearing a thick sweater, thicker socks, and you turn on the oven. While that heats up, you gather ingredients: flour, sugar, eggs, pumpkin puree and—oh no. You’re out of pumpkin pie spice. But don’t worry: We can fix this! What Is Pumpkin Pie Spice?
Pumpkin pie spice is a cozy, earthy, mildly kicky American spice blend (that, just to be clear, contains absolutely no pumpkin). Odds are, several of the components are already in your pantry. The ingredient list leans heavily on baking spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger, but the specifics depend on the brand. Let’s review a few for inspiration: Read More >> …

I Didn’t Feel Connected to My Mom Until We Cooked Korean Food Together

My mom and I have never cooked together. Unlike many sentimental food stories that start with “I learned how to cook at the helm of my mother,” I have absolutely zero memories that involve home cooking with my family. Both of my parents were busy, so my brother and I were often left to fend for ourselves. It wasn’t that my mom was a lousy cook. Her soups were always a hit, as were the five or so dishes in her weeknight rotation. Like many Korean moms, she mastered her craft to a T. Read More >> …

A Quick, Crunchy Indian Salad for My Mother, Who Taught Me Everything

Good food is worth a thousand words—sometimes more. In My Family Recipe, a writer shares the story of a single dish that’s meaningful to them and their loved ones. I grew up with my Punjabi family in a small town in West Bengal, India. Childhood home pleasures were basic; there were none of the gadgets and emerging mod-cons of the day (I was 12 when our first black-and-white television set arrived in the house, and we were absolutely transfixed by it!). For us, there were more simple pleasures, such as playing cricket and badminton and the get-togethers with family and friends at the many festivals, weddings and religious celebrations. These events created such fervour and joy for us all; they were occasions for dancing, singing and, of course, food. Read More >> …

A Cheesy Beet Risotto That’s *Almost* Too Pretty to Eat

We’ve partnered with La Crema Winery to share the cool weather-ready dinner recipe we’re making from now until next spring: a creamy beetroot risotto that tastes even better when paired up with a crisp, dry rosé. I like to throw color-themed dinner parties. They’re like costume parties, but for the food—though I will say my guests are always encouraged to dress in any shade of the hue, should they so desire. The color, then, is a prompt not just for our outfits that night, but also for the menu. Read More >> …
