We're a big fan of prolific food writer/cookbook author Annie Bell's beautifully photographed, meticulously tested recipes. Have you seen her Brooklyn Blackout Cake, for instance? Her latest collection, Low Carb Revolution, is one of those books that makes an otherwise less-than-appealing diet sound as good as hearty shepherd's pie on a cold winter evening.

Says Chef Ashley Christensen: "This is the most popular dish we make at Poole's Diner, for sure. We're on track to sell about 15,000 of them this year. It's rich, delicious and deeply comforting. The combination of the three cheeses creates interesting depth celebrating sharpness, brininess and a little bit of cave-aged funkiness."
