What I’m eating and reading this week:
You Don’t Need a Recipe! Have you seen this special section? It’s a collection of Sam Sifton’s “no-recipe” recipes culled from his popular cooking newsletter, and includes a few dozen recipes that are simple enough to improvise if you have the most basic skills and ingredients on hand. Think Roasted Fish with Ginger, Scallions, and Soy, or Savory French Toast with Basil and Tomatoes, or Steak Tacos with Pineapple Salsa, or that super cool looking Hasselback Kielbasa up there which is guaranteed to make you a hero in your own house. The print version, out on Sunday, is gonna be something you’ll want to keep around on the kitchen counter.
