Dinner Tonight: Broiled Ham Steaks

Dinner Tonight: Broiled Ham Steaks

Jacques Pepin, distinguished private chef, poet, HoJo consultant, and author of some of the thickest tomes of culinary education, also likes to eat on time. Although he’s recently been strutting his stuff on PBS hawking his 2004 cookbook Fast Food My Way, he’s been trying to cut corners for a long time. Or so I…

Dinner Tonight: Sopa de Ajo (Garlic Soup) Recipe

[Photographs: Nick Kindelsperger] Why is garlic soup so satisfying? It’s one of the simplest soups to make, and yet it comes out soothing and utterly calming.
