what ray’s pouring now

2017 DOMAINE CHAPEL JULIÉNAS CÔTE DE BESSAY ($33) I had this silky, layered red at NYC’s Racines restaurant; now I wish I had a case. Cru Beaujolais is the ultimate start-of-spring red, so if you see this domaine’s wines, snap them up. Other top producers are Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Louis Dutraive, Clos de la Roilette, and Julien Sunier. 2016 RIDGE EAST BENCH ZINFANDEL ($32) I retasted this seductive Sonoma County red not too long ago and was reminded once more that California’s premier Zinfandel specialist really does make killer Zins. This one bowls you over with wild blackberry, dark chocolate, and spice notes, yet it somehow never seems too big or too ripe. TENSEI ENDLESS SUMMER TOKUBETSU HONJOZO SAKE ($34) March may herald the start of springtime, but in New York City, where I live, it’s…

makers gonna make

SLICE INTO GRAISON GILL’S COUNTRY BOULE from the cover of this issue and you’ll smell a nutty, almost molasses-like earthiness. Take a bite, and the dark brown, caramelized crust gives way to a tender, chewy, tangy crumb. How does Gill deliver such complex flavor with just flour, water, and salt? Good technique and a hot oven help, of course. So does a kicky sourdough starter. But the real difference-maker is more fundamental: Gill bakes with freshly milled flour. As writer Rowan Jacobsen details in “The Miller” (p. 44), Gill fermented a whole-grain revolution in New Orleans when he brought a 3,000-pound stone mill to Bellegarde Bakery. His bakery created a new micro-economy in town, selling freshly milled heirloom grains to local chefs. It also linked him to a network of like-minded…

flavor savers

1. A CREAM “Rather than using plain whipped cream, I make a mixture of mascarpone and heavy cream, so when it is whipped it tastes kind of like Cool Whip (in a good way). It also makes it a bit more stable, so it’s good for traveling.”—CHEF PAT O’MALLEY, HUNGRY PIGEON, PHILADELPHIA 2. A DRESSING “My best friend came up with this ‘Save the Day’ dressing; I add this magic enhancer to a lot of things I do. It always makes them better. It’s a mix of fish sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, salt, and togarashi.”—CHEF HILDA YSUSI, BROKEN BARREL, THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS 3. AN EMULSION “I always travel with my saffron emulsion sauce. It works great for pasta, seafood, fish, and filet mignon. I make it with shallots, saffron, clarified butter, heavy cream, and salt…

keep on rolling

IN AN ERA WHEN we are embracing all things handmade, from fresh pasta to one-of-a-kind ceramics, it’s still fairly uncommon to see a restaurant hand-rolling its own couscous. That’s because the process of making it from scratch is labor-intensive, repetitive, and time-consuming. Cooks must roll the semolina flour over and over so that the tiny particles stick to one another, clumping up into tender granules without forming a dough. Chef Meir Adoni from Nur in New York City, one of a few restaurants making couscous this way, refers to the motion as a kind of rubbing, “as if you are warming your hands.” But the lighter texture and fresh taste of hand-rolled grains make it worth the effort. Ron and Leetal Arazi, owners of the artisanal food company New York Shuk—which…
