Pasta With Baby Artichokes, Mascarpone, And Hazelnuts


Pasta With Baby Artichokes, Mascarpone, And Hazelnuts

The hardest part of making this recipe is trimming the artichokes, which isn’t as hard as it seems. If you can’t get your hands on baby artichokes, use the hearts of two globe artichokes.


12 ounces fresh lasagna sheets (about 8x6 inches)
All-purpose flour (for surface)
1 lemon, halved
1 pound baby artichokes (about 8)
3 garlic cloves, crushed

1½ teaspoons Aleppo-style pepper
1 cup mascarpone
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Preparation Preheat oven to 350°. Place a pasta sheet on a lightly floured work surface. Using a paring knife or a pastry wheel, cut the sheet into...

Inside The Kitchen At Ladurée

While nothing quite rivals the gift of a Tiffany blue box, a light pistachio green one from Ladurée Paris, promising an assortment of divine pastel pastries, comes pretty close. Desperate to discover how one of our favorite patisseries makes the macaron based treats we cannot get enough of, we visited the shop's NYC flagship for a behind-the-scenes look at how their sugary sensations take shape. Their iconic macarons are flown in fresh every day from Paris, so you won't see them made here, but their best-known, irresistible pastries and tarts all come together in-house—and are almost too pretty to eat. Here, watch how they make their famed Saint Honoré Rose, Tarte Citron and Ispahan, that taste just as perfect (and...

How Puffy Tacos Became The Unofficial Food Mascot Of San Antonio

If you haven’t been to San Antonio, you may not be familiar with the puffy taco. I’m from Dallas—a mere five-hour car ride away—and had never heard even the name until someone informed me that it was the unofficial food mascot of San Antonio. I hopped in my car to investigate. At first, I was skeptical. The puffy taco, for the uninitiated, is a member of the filled tortilla family that’s distinguished by its bubbly, fried shell. It’s not the same thing as a crispy taco, whose exterior is more like a tortilla chip; nor is it as pliable as a regular soft taco. The puffy taco occupies an ideal middle ground between the two. The outside is delicate and crispy,...

6 Healthy Recipes For Passover

This week, the ritual feast marking the Jewish holiday of Passover also doubles as a time for seder plates using seasonal spring ingredients. Below, we asked a few notable chefs—including Alon Shaya and Melia Marden—to share recipes that put a healthy, modern spin on what to eat this holiday. Charoset Alon Shaya of Shaya in New Orleans “Charoset is served at Passover seders all over the world. I like to take a Piemontese approach based on my deep love for the cuisine of that region. I combine figs, dates, hazelnuts, pistachios and Moscato d’Asti with apples and onions. All of the nuts and apples really keep it healthy; it’s not overly sweet, either, which keeps the sugar levels down.” Yields about 4 cups Ingredients 10 Medjool...

A recipe for immunity

Bone broth has been used as an immunity booster for centuries. Thanks to amino acids such as glycine and collagen, consuming bone broth helps with our metabolic function including the building and repair of muscle tissue, bone density and boosting nutrient absorption, not to mention glowing skin. And with its medicinal qualities, chicken broth in particular is often prescribed for mitigating infection. Once the cartilage of the bones has been boiled down, an abundance of valuable compounds are extracted, including glucosamine (which helps to reduce joint inflammation), collagen, gelatin and trace minerals that also improve digestion. The following is an immune-boosting, joint loving broth recipe you can easily make at home. “What are nowadays sold as expensive supplements can all be found and...

Chocolate Macaroon Cake Is The Ultimate Passover Dessert


This is not your average flourless cake. It's also not the chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons that have historically graced Passover seders. It's a gluten-free and dairy-free hybrid of the two. Which tastes insanely good.
Senior food editor Claire Saffitz tested a lot of different versions of this cake to get it just right. Here's everything that makes this Passover-pleasing beauty so damn good. This is the chocolate macaroon cake.

The Coconut OilUsing coconut oil instead of butter is a win-win. It’s not only dairy-free and pareve, but it also makes the cake incredibly moist. In fact, this dessert gets better the longer it sits, so make it a day ahead and watch the flavors meld and grow. The ChocolateThis cake...

McDonald’s Just Launched Spring’s Most Instagram-Worthy Drink


Cherry blossoms signal the true arrival of spring around the world, and their blooms are a beautiful reminder that summer fun is just around the corner. They also inspire some of the most beautiful seasonal beverages, like last year’s Sakura Frappuccino from Starbucks. This year, McDonald’s Japan is heeding our call for sakura-inspired bevvies with the cutest, pinkest drink yet.


To coincide with Japan’s national Sakura festival, McDonald’s has launched the “Sakura McFloat,” a sparkling pink cherry-flavored soda topped with their soft serve. If ice cream isn’t your thing, you can order it without, called a McFizz. The Instagram-worthy drinks are available on the menu at select restaurants along with Sakura-inspired burgers and pink fries!
