Over the past few years we’ve stopped by the kitchen at Talde in Park Slope to ask if the chef would slide us some of our favorite recipes.

We decided this classic dish needed a massive overhaul. During our research, we unearthed classified documents indicating that another classic dish included orange and poultry as well, and that’s the Chinese orange chicken available at pretty much every Chinese restaurant on the planet. So in the spirit of the 1990s, turn up the ’N Sync because here’s some fusion cuisine. The end result is a perfectly cooked and sliced duck breast with our version of a soy-orange glaze. Orange chicken +  duck à l’orange = a new classic! Zang!

Mapo tofu is Max Sussman’s desert-island Meal. As in, if you had to live on a desert island and could have only one dish for the rest of your life, what would it be? That question doesn’t make any sense. How could you be stuck on a desert island with a lifetime supply of mapo tofu, or any other dish, for that matter? Totally illogical question, same honest answer: mapo tofu.
