A recent study found that the polyphenols in red wine might prevent plaque- and cavity-causing bacteria from sticking to teeth. SMART EATING The secret to a sharp mind may be in your salad bowl.

Colorful scarves “Most of my scarves were gifts from my friend Donna Peck. Years ago I would give her produce from my farm and she would give me an Hermès scarf at Christmas. My favorite scarf, though, is one that my granddaughters found at Goodwill.” Hermès Un Amour de Cheval Silk Scarf, $245; therealreal.com Everyday pants “The Wearever pants from J. Jill are great for bending, reaching or any kitchen task that requires motion.

A few months ago, my husband and I had dinner at New York City’s Eleven Madison Park, which is, according to the official World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, the No. 1 restaurant on earth. There are all sorts of theories about how a place earns this esteemed title, but I’m going to offer up my own: Halfway through our meal, after a butter-poached lobster course and a truffle-smothered mushroom tart, our server brought us a bucket of Popeyes fried chicken. It was the single best thing that has ever happened to me in a fancy restaurant. The chicken arrived in a metal pail with “Happy 10th Anniversary, Wylie & Maile” etched on the lid because the staff knew that we had served Popeyes at our wedding. (They delivered two small…

Alex, is it ever difficult to keep a straight face while filming Chopped? Jasmine Cazeau Corona, CA Your question made me crack a smile! Sometimes, yes, but less often than you might think. The show is pretty serious, and it’s a big deal to the competitors who are putting themselves out there in the public eye. —Alex Guarnaschelli Eddie, what is your favorite seafood to grill? William Lewis Chattanooga I love grilling salmon on a cedar plank. Before placing the fillets on the wood, I brush them with canola oil and top them with lemon zest and whatever barbecue rub I have on hand. It works every time. —Eddie Jackson Damaris, my grilled chicken breasts always turn out dry. How long should I be cooking them? Caroline McMahon Holbrook, NY The cooking time will vary based on the size and…

Favorite way to celebrate as an adult “With my parents, my friends and an overpriced bottle of champagne!” Favorite birthday meal “Spaghetti bolognese and cake. No salad, no vegetables, no juice cleanse, no yogurt, no chia seeds.” Favorite birthday cake “A Hungarian specialty called Dobos torte. It’s a vanilla cake layered with chocolate buttercream and topped with hot caramel that forms a sugary shell. It’s unreal and never gets old to me.” Best gift ever “When I was in France years ago, I worked with a chef who was never satisfied: The carrot dice could always be smaller, the fish cut more evenly, the soup more salted. He walked up to me the morning of my birthday and handed me a brand-new chef’s knife. He didn’t say a word, he just nodded. I thought, ‘Wow! One day…
