Video: Watch How Jerk Baby Back Ribs Get Made At Brooklyn's Hometown Bar-B-Que

Recipe is inspired by NYC's Caribbean community
Jul 23, 2014 4:00 pm

Brooklyn's Hometown Bar-B-Que gets a lot of love for its Texas-quality beef rib. But for a taste of something uniquely New York, try the jerk baby back ribs. Pitmaster Billy Durney, a Brooklyn native, says the recipe is inspired by the aromas he encountered growing up on the edge of a Caribbean immigrant community that often grilled meat outside on grate-covered shopping carts. Watch him whip up a fresh rack right here.

A Quick Interview With Fast-Paced San Diego Chef Richard Blais

How the Top Chef All-Stars winner stays on point
Jul 23, 2014 3:30 pm

He may be most known for winning Bravo’s Top Chef All-Stars, but chef Richard Blais dons several others through his work as a restaurateur, cookbook author and television personality. When he’s not making life more flavorful and zany, Blais may be found training for his next marathon, making a picnic lunch for his daughters or leaving on a jet plane for his new television series Top Chef Duels, which premieres in August. With all this going on, we couldn’t help but ask him how the heck he keeps his mojo alive and well.

You may recall my zero-effort kimchi pickled eggs. You can make this recipe with regular boiled eggs or my magical spicy ones. Either way you're in for some fermented cabbage goodness. Kimchi and eggs are a natural pairing. The acid and heat cut the richness of the yolk, so it's only natural that during a deviled egg-inventing rampage I went with something like this.  

10 Seafood Pasta Recipes For A Delicious, And Light, Summer Dinner

Pasta with crab, lobster, shrimp, clams and more
Jul 23, 2014 2:00 pm

This isn't farewell to meatballs, it's just "see you later." It's hot out there, you know? Lighten up your pasta with some fresh seafood, olive oil, chili peppers, citrus, fresh herbs and lots of veggies. Pick up a bag of mussels, a big hunk of swordfish or a mess of fresh sardines and toss away. Need a compromise? Fine, the mussel pasta has chorizo in it, too. We're nothing if not accommodating to your dinner needs.

For a new twist on surf-and-turf, we found inspiration from the Provençal seafood dish bouillabaisse. Make a compound butter with saffron, fennel fronds and clams and shamelessly slather it onto some grilled steaks. Grilled summer vegetables complement the dish and we think you’ll find plenty of uses for the bouillabaisse butter for more of your summer grilled favorites. 

It's The Kimchi Slap Heard Around The Internet

We've got all the painful, messy, funky details
Jul 23, 2014 11:00 am

You’d certainly be forgiven for missing the latest episode of Everybody, Kimchi! Or for not knowing that the comedy-drama series even existed. A clip from a recent episode has been making the rounds this week for featuring what must go down as one of the most painful, messiest slaps of all-time. While we’re unable to translate any of the dialogue, we’re willing to bet that whatever this guy did must have been really bad.
