we got skillz

I started “30 Minute Meals” as a class where I would instruct people (in person back then!) in six basic skills and provide them with five recipes to match each skill.

Our whole team is focused on that premise in this issue. The skills we’re teaching are as universal and timeless as searing a steak, buying the best seafood, and making one of my all-time favorites, a proper cutlet. Trendier, more of-the-moment lessons also pop up, like how to do a killer cast-iron skillet pizza and how to cook vegan well. We asked experts—like Angie Mar,…

on our radar

GOT SWAG? Forget kooky baseball caps and logo mugs—restaurant swag has gotten a serious aesthetic upgrade. There’s a sneaker collaboration between Nike and David Chang’s Momofuku empire. Virgil Abloh, the artistic director of menswear at Louis Vuitton, created merch for Insta-fave green tea café Cha Cha Matcha. Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream offers everything from high-design hoodies and snapback hats to beach towels: “People love chefs the way that they love athletes and musicians, and they want to have a piece of that culture to share and express their appreciation,” says owner Nick Morgenstern. That’s how Dominique Ansel—the king of Cronuts behind the Dominique Ansel Bakery chain—ended up working with the Italian luxury brand Koio earlier this year on his namesake pair of $350 sneakers, complete with mini copper croissants on the…

rachael ray every day exclusive: golden dreams of tuscany

When I was a girl, my mom would always wish me sweet dreams at bedtime. In Italian, the expression is sogni d’oro, “dreams of gold.” But even when I was young, my dreams seemed to be more sour than sweet, made up of moments in my day-to-day life that scared me, caused me stress, or provided general anxiety. I’m often reliving my toughest moments—whether at school, at work, or at home—trying to change the outcomes of each event that bothered me and working out my deep need to please people. I’m a waitress at heart, even in my sleep, and I want everyone to be satisfied and happy. To that end, sometimes I work so hard in my dreams that I wake up in a sweat. They’re not usually made…
