Looking for something to make this weekend? Below, browse a roundup of the best food and beverage recipes featured in WWD over the past few years. Leading chefs including Missy Robbins and Thomas Keller share directions for beloved dishes like olive oil cake and sweet potato mille-feuille, and mixologists from Bemelmans Bar in New York and Claridge’s in London provide step-by-step directions to recreate popular libations at home.
Sticky Pumpkin-chestnut Gingerbread, From “What’s for Dessert” by Claire Saffitz
“The cake is best eaten slightly warm while the toffee sauce is glossy (the butter in the sauce will solidify when cool).”
Pineapple Kimchi, From Chef Danny Bowien’s ‘Mission Vegan’ Cookbook
“Turns out, kimchi is another great way to explore pineapple’s savory side, bumping up its acidity and balancing its remaining sweetness with salt and heat.”
Heirloom Tomatoes With Peanut Salsa Macha From The Lil’ Deb’s Oasis Cookbook
“While a perfectly ripe tomato does a lot of the work in this salad, it is not to be outdone by the salsa macha, an incredible sauce and a Lil’ Deb’s staple.”
Roasted Strawberries With Ricotta and Mint from Francis Mallmann’s cookbook “Green Fire.”
“In this sumptuous dessert, I caramelize sugar, butter, and strawberries and spoon the molten stew over a dollop of ricotta topped with fresh mint.”
Chocolate Sugar Cookies, From Melissa Weller’s Cookbook ‘A Good Bake’
“These are everything I want in a chocolate sugar cookie: they’re really chocolaty, not too sweet, ever-so-slightly salty, and a bit chewy.”
Olive Oil Cake, From Missy Robbins’ Cookbook “Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner…Life!: Recipes and Adventures From My Home Kitchen”
“We serve it at Lilia and people always ask me for this recipe.”
Berry Oatmeal Crisp From Sybille Van Kempen’s Bridgehampton Inn and Restaurant Cookbook
“This easy, make ahead dessert was one of my mother’s favorite dishes for a crowd. Substitute the most local, ripe, seasonal berry, or pitted fruit combination.”
Zac Posen’s Browned Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookies
“In my version of chocolate chip cookies, I cook the butter until it browns and becomes deep mahogany with a hazelnut scent, then chill it down.”
Shortcakes With Roasted Strawberries, From Loaves and Fishes
“Roasting the strawberries for this shortcake intensifies the sweetness of the berry, making the syrup jam-like.”
Giant Macaron Cake, a Sweet Recipe From Nadine Levy Redzepi’s’s “Downtime: Deliciousness at Home”
“As it turns out, a giant macaron is faster to make than a bunch of small ones, and it looks really impressive. It’s a little messy to serve, but it’s still delicious.”
Coconut Key Lime Tarts From Gwyneth Paltrow’s Cookbook ‘It’s All Easy’
“While I’m a big fan of the sweetened condensed milk and sugar bomb that is the traditional recipe, I wanted to make a raw, vegan dessert highlighting the bright, citrusy flavor I love so much in the original without all the butter, sugar and preservatives.”
Thomas Keller’s Molokai Sweet Potato Mille-Feuille, excerpted from “The French Laundry, Per Se”
“When we found ourselves with a colorful variety of small marble potatoes, we scalloped them in a sheet pan, making a virtue of their varying sizes and colors. When we discovered the richly flavored purple Molokai sweet potato, we used this same technique. We love its deep coloring, its sweetness, and the savory depth of the spinach, pear, and onion jus that makes this vegetarian dish as satisfying as a meat course.”
Miso Glazed Carrots, From Athena Calderone’s “Cook Beautiful”
“Serve the carrots warm, topped with pesto. Finish with a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds and a pinch of Aleppo pepper.”
