Food Editor, The New York Times: #NYTCooking

A Homemade Fluke With Fancy Plating — In 2002, Mario Batali published "The Babbo Cookbook," a guide to the cooking at his flagship restaurant in Manhattan, and within two years I had made every recipe in it at least once. I worked carefully, using the cookbook's photographs as blueprints.

A Culinary Pilgrimage to Trinidad — TRINIDAD is not the Caribbean of white sand beaches and umbrella drinks. There is oil money there, and tall buildings in which to count it, and grinding poverty and the sound of calypso drifting by on the breeze. There is serious cricket when there isn't serious soccer, and there is always a plan afoot for Carnival, the island's monthlong, pre-Lenten feast.

Make Your Own Snacks — Make Your Own Snacksis a group of recipes curated by New York Times editors.

Trini-Chinese Chicken — Chinese-style chicken is a dish you can find all over Trinidad and within the diaspora that has followed the nation's emergence from British rule The skin is fried into a lacquered mahogany The meat beneath it tastes of five-spice, ginger and soy and is generally accompanied by a hum of oyster sauce mixed with the zing of the pickled Scotch-bonnet-pepper sauce that is seemingly omnipresent on the island's tables

Country Captain Recipe - NYT Cooking — Country Captain is a dish you'll find throughout the Lowcountry of South Carolina and Georgia, in restaurants and home dining rooms alike It has been a staple of Southeastern Junior League cookbooks since at least the 1950s and is found in various forms in older cookbooks as far back as the 18th century It is, simply, chicken fried in butter or bacon fat, then stewed in the oven with tomatoes fragrant with curry and pepper and served over white Carolina rice
