All Is Not Lost

Discovering that you suffer from celiac disease can change your life. In Memory of Bread chronicles one man's struggle to give up pizza, pasta and beer. With these delicious and gluten-free Flax Muffins (get the recipe), everyone can have their bread and eat it, too.

From Paris, with Love

Listening to the romantic Paris for One might inspire thoughts of solo strolls through the City of Light, but preparing Braised Chicken with Potatoes, Carrots, Mushrooms and Peas (get the recipe) will provoke thoughts of meals with the ones you love.

Modern Chinese at Its Best

Ordering No. 13 off the menu of your local Chinese take-out joint is no way to ring in the New Year. Instead, listen to Double Cup Love, Eddie Huang's memoir of traveling to China, then make this delicate, healthy and texturally pleasing Whole Steamed Snapper with Chrysanthemum and Tofu Salad (get the recipe).

The Perfect Side

An exquisite side dish can make the meal, and this Belgian Endive and Blue Cheese Gratin (get the recipe) is an excellent accompaniment to any menu. Prepare this rich, Basque take on the classic as you listen to the novel Cooking for Picasso to be instantly transported to a time of intrigue, love and delicious food.

The Showstopper

Looking for a holiday meal to wow your dining companions? Look no further than the Feast of the Seven Fishes (get the recipe), a traditional Italian banquet that is as memorable as it is opulent.
