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.

I love a great blank canvas, and deviled eggs are just that. Their twist-friendly format just begs for specialty ingredients like truffles, exotic spices and caviar. Or in this case, a much more affordable option found at any Asian supermarket: tobiko, flying fish roe. You may have seen it adorning your sushi, but wait til you see what it does to this picnic classic. Prepare to impress your guests.

If you're looking for traditional Argentine food, odds are you'll find steak and provoleta on the menu. Provoleta is an appetizer or side dish of simple seared and melted provolone cheese, seasoned with herbs and spiced and served with plenty of bread for dipping. It's fondue at its least pretentious, and it's a great reason to break out the cast-iron skillet.
