As a follow-up to my recent piece highlighting Food Network’s Top 100 Recipes of 2007, I’d like to highlight Food and Wine’s very own list. Last year, the magazine published a whopping 650 recipes, and they have chosen 90 as their very best to highlight the year. As much as I like and watch Food Network television, I think Food & Wine’s list is much more on target with the types of recipes I would gravitate towards.
While a lot of the recipes call to the “foodie” in us and are not necessarily everyday fare (like the Pepper-Crusted Prime Rib Roast with Mushroom Armagnac Sauce, Strawberry Shortcakes with Meyer Lemon Cream and the Thai Chicken Stew with Potato Chive Dumplings, for example), the list is filled out nicely with simpler and familiar recipes as well, like their Perfect Pizza Margherita, All-American Hamburgers with Red Onion Compote, and their take on Key Lime Pie with Bruleed Key Lime Tarts.
Lest you think this is a “stuffy” list, you may be surprised to know that three different burger recipes made the cut. And those looking for good old fashioned macaroni and cheese need not be disappointed. You’re all taken care of with F&W’s Three Cheese Mini Macs. How cute are they?
You can check out the complete list right here. Coincidentally, I had recently ripped out the recipe for Sicilian-Style Meatballs, planning to make them this weekend, and that made their cut for one of the best recipes. Looking forward to giving them a whirl.
P.S. And Supercrispy Pan-Fried Chicken? I am SO there.
