THE MOTHER LOAD What does Mom really want for Mother’s Day? Besides flowers, the matriarchs of BA reveal what’s topping their wish lists at “If I don’t get tea in bed on Mother’s Day, heads are gonna roll.

BACK WHEN I WAS SINGLE, I wasn’t good at vacations. There was the occasional bachelor party, and maybe a golf weekend or two, but in terms of actual trips—you know, the kind with real hotels and countryside tours and all that?—I didn’t know where to begin. So one summer, when friends asked if I wanted to join them for a week in a seaside village in the South of France, my instinct told me to just go with it. And when I discovered that the town, Villefranche-sur-Mer, is where the Rolling Stones recorded Exile on Main St., well, I booked my ticket. As soon as I arrived, I wondered why I didn’t do this type of thing more often. The five of us shared two small apartments overlooking the harbor, and we…

I’ve spent most of my adult life traveling to, from, and around Asia—partly for fun and partly as a travel writer. At every Chinese meal, I always crave one dish: pea shoots, a.k.a. dou miao in Mandarin. Tender and sweet, the leaves, stems, and tendrils of the pea plant are delicate enough to eat raw, yet retain springtime-evoking qualities when cooked. To prepare the shoots (or really any hardy spring green) for four, sauté 2 dried red chiles and 3 or 4 smashed garlic cloves in a glug of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until fragrant. Add ¾ lb. pea shoots and cook, tossing often, until the leaves barely wilt. Season with salt and you’ve got an easy dish so versatile it goes with any cuisine.—MATT GROSS…

Everyone at BA has an in-fight cocktail routine. What’s yours? "Vodka-soda with lime or a Bloody Mary.” Greatest food city on earth. "Florence. Trattoria Pandemonio serves this steak propped up with a piece of bread, and all the juice just drips down. It’s so massive, and the cut of meat is beautiful.” Most memorable meal while traveling. "the Cantonese brunch at the Mandarin Oriental in Tokyo. The dumplings are amazing, and everyone gets dolled up.” Typical room-service order. "Caesar salad with grilled chicken. Or a piping-hot minestrone. That’s one thing I get neurotic about: I need my soup to be crazy hot.” And for breakfast? "two eggs over easy with sliced avocado and turkey bacon.” One food everyone tells you to try, but you just can’t get up the nerve. "Brains.” Your last hangover: When was…
