  1. The boastful egg
  2. What does organic really mean when it comes to eggs? Or hormone-free? (Not that much it turns out.) Or antibiotic-free? Or free range, or cage-free, or… any of those other labels that get slapped willy-nilly on egg cartons these days. This piece untangles it all.

  3. Caramelized tomato tarte Tatin
  4. Melissa Clark recreates a savory pastry from the Gramercy Tavern in a larger size and gorgeous mosaic for dramatic serving (and eating) this fall.

  5. Moose – it’s what’s for dinner
  6. Moose is much more than a political punchline in Alaska. It’s not just target hunting; it’s real food for many Alaskans. We appreciated this thoughtful look at the real role that moose plays in the Alaskan home kitchen.

  7. Eating better on a diet
  8. We also appreciated this much healthier approach to dieting: adding in good things instead of taking out everything.

  9. Hainanese Chicken With Rice
  10. Mark Bittman poaches a chicken and uses both the meat and stock in this classic comfort food.
