Bistro Dinner Featuring Salmon Cakes
Pan-Fried Fresh Salmon Cakes with Cheese
How do you get a delicate yet toothsome texture and a soft but clear salmon flavor? It's all in how you handle the fish and the binders.
Classic Crème Brûlée
Lots of yolks, turbinado sugar, an instant-read thermometer, and a final chill are the keys to perfect créme brûlée.
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Cook the potatoes whole and in their skins, add the right dairy in the right order, and toast--don't roast--the garlic.
Best Caesar Salad
A coddled egg gives the dressing its distinctive smooth texture--or, if you prefer, soft tofu and a food processor can create a thick dressing without the egg.
