Sticky Lemongrass Chicken Thighs are marinated in our favorite Thai flavors, then roasted until golden brown and delicious. We serve them on top of a beautiful, healthy Black Rice Salad, studded with crunchy red cabbage and loaded with fresh herbs. This chicken will stick right to your favorites list.
We give the classic Aviation Cocktail a modern twist with our own homemade Violet Syrup. A mix of gin, lemon juice, violet syrup and maraschino cherry syrup, it’s as beautiful as it is delicious. The syrup is also great mixed with Champagne, or with club soda.
Spring is here, and one of the first areas of the garden to poke up green leaves is the stinging nettle patch. If you can avoid the sting, the nettle is one of the healthiest, most delicious perennials that’s super-easy to propagate — and is the superstar of this soup, made with leeks, potatoes, and the green, green nettle.

No longer the boring cousin of the brownie, these blondies are packed with tons of flavor from brown butter, toasted hazelnuts, chocolate chunks, butterscotch chips and a healthy splash of bourbon.
Just because a recipe uses fruit, it doesn’t have to be fruity. A pomegranate glaze gives slow-baked salmon a delightful balance of sweetness and acidity, and we serve it over a bed of roasted lemons, leeks and fennel.
Opposites attract in most walks of life, and recipes are no exception. Our favorite dishes are flavored with a careful balance of sweetness and spice. We’ve infused a mix of winter vegetables and farro with sweet maple syrup and spice supplied by Maille Dijon Originale mustard, to make a really delicious and easy vegetarian dinner for a cold evening.
Cork and Knife Our new cookbook is out now — and its focus is one of our favorite ingredients: booze! We show you how to use the cooking properties of beer, wine, bourbon and more to make your dishes pop! When you want the flavors of an everything...
A beautiful, balanced and sophisticated cocktail that pairs rye whiskey, Campari and sweet fig jam. Fresh lemon juice and lemon bitters add a bright, citrusy note. This is what we're drinking on Valentine's Day... and as often as we can after that. We've officially...
