Top Chefs Go Head-to-Head With Malaysian Cooking

When we received the invite to attend Malaysia Kitchen‘s first Rendang Cook-Off, I’ll admit I had to Google what rendang even was.

Although it’s usually made with beef, the layers of flavor go well with any [...]

A Dish for Every State?

Some dishes are so iconic of America, they bring us together at the table no matter where we live. I’m talking burgers, mac & cheese, pizza, French fries, apple pie, pancakes, etc. (Just ask Jeffrey Saad of United Tastes of America — he’s tried them all.) But lately we’ve been wondering what dishes are unique to each state. If each state [...]

A Real-Deal Mardi Gras King Cake

I’m a very lucky girl, having married into a food-obsessed family from New Orleans. My in-laws send us NOLA treats all year — local favorites that are hard to come by in New York, like Zatarain’s jambalaya mix, Aunt Sally’s pralines and Tony Chachere’s seasoning. As Fat Tuesday approaches, it’s King Cake time. This quintessential [...]

It’s official: One of America’s favorite sandwich cookies is turning 100. At Cooking Channel, we’re especially excited to celebrate, since our office is located in the New York City Food Person landmark Chelsea Market. The first Oreo rolled off the line 100 years ago at NBC, or the National Biscuit Company, in the space were [...]

Thirsty Thursday: Peanut Butter and Jealous Much?

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. Last week we shared our adult’s only riff on the [...]
