Chicken Tagine With Olives and Preserved Lemons Recipe
NYT Cooking: This rich and fragrant chicken stew is laden with complex flavors and spices reminiscent of the sort you might encounter in a mountainside cafe in Morocco. Save yourself the cost of a plane ticket, however, and make this at home. First, rub the chicken with a redolent combination of garlic, saffron, ground ginger, paprika, cumin, turmeric and black pepper, then pop it in...
Marcella Hazan’s Bolognese Sauce Recipe
NYT Cooking: After the death in 2013 of Marcella Hazan, the cookbook author who changed the way Americans cook Italian food, The Times asked readers which of her recipes had become staples in their kitchens. Many people answered with one word: "Bolognese." So here it is: Ms. Hazan's classic, go-to Bolognese sauce, which one reader called "the gold standard." Try it and see for yourself.
Sheet-Pan Chicken With Chickpeas, Cumin and Turmeric Recipe
NYT Cooking: The yogurt marinade does two very important jobs in this sheet-pan chicken recipe. One, the acidity in the marinade helps tenderize the meat, and two, the sugars in the yogurt help brown and caramelize the skin of the chicken as it roasts. Be sure to toss the chickpeas occasionally as they roast to encourage them to get coated in the chicken fat as it renders.
Vietnamese Lemongrass Beef and Noodle Salad Recipe
NYT Cooking: Bun Bo Xao, a zesty stir-fry of marinated beef hot from the wok paired with room temperature rice noodles, makes a satisfying main-course salad year-round.

Chicken With Mixed Mushrooms and Cream Recipe
NYT Cooking: This succulent chicken recipe came to The Times from Amanda Hesser in 2003, but it’s as timeless as they come. Here, riesling lifts a rich cream sauce, while mushrooms add a distinct earthiness.

Cold Rice Noodles With Grilled Chicken and Peanut Sauce Recipe
NYT Cooking: Maybe cold pasta makes you think of some mediocre quasi-Italian grab-and-go deli choice in a plastic clamshell.<br/><br/>To me, it conjures up images of delicious Southeast Asian street food and warm ocean breezes. There, cool rice noodles are topped with crisp vegetables, sweet herbs, pungent sauces and usually a little savory element, like sizzled fragrant beef or nuggets of f...
Spicy Ginger Pork Noodles With Bok Choy Recipe
NYT Cooking: Spicy, brawny and full of ginger and garlic, these pork noodles are a play on dumplings, but easier to make at home. If you don’t have the black vinegar to sprinkle on top of the sliced ginger, you can simply leave it out. Or try substituting balsamic, which is a bit sweeter, but has similar caramel notes to play off the ginger’s pungency.
Sea Scallops With Brown Butter, Capers and Lemon Recipe
NYT Cooking: This bright yet rich treatment for scallops came to The Times in a 2009 article about Kevin Zraly, the wine director of Windows on the World from 1976 to 2001. Mr. Zraly turned the restaurant into an international wine mecca: at the time it was destroyed, when the World Trade Center fell, its cellar held close to 100,000 bottles of 1,500 labels. Mr. Zraly and Micha...
Coq au Vin Recipe
NYT Cooking: A coq au vin is a classic French stew in which chicken is braised slowly in red wine and a little brandy to yield a supremely rich sauce filled with tender meat, crisp bits of bacon, mushrooms and burnished pearl onions. Traditional recipes call for a whole cut-up chicken, but using all dark meat gives you a particularly succulent dish without the risk of overcooked%...
Oven-Steamed Salmon Recipe
NYT Cooking: This simple way to roast salmon brings spectacular results with hardly any worry on the cook's part. The Mediterranean cookbook author Paula Wolfert learned it from the French chef Michel Bras, and it rises and falls on the thinness of the sheet pan. A pan of water delivers enough moisture to steam the fish briefly at a low temperature, producing a final product that is ...
Seared Pork Cutlets With Green Garlic Salsa Verde Recipe
NYT Cooking: This recipe amplifies the green in the garlic by stirring it into an herb-filled salsa verde. You can also use regular garlic, though you might want to reduce the amount by half.<br/><br/>I also added garlic chives to the mix just because I saw them at the farmers’ market and figured a little more garlic flavor could only help. (Regular chives are perfectly fine.)
