With 24 of NYC's best sweet and savory pies
Aug 6, 2014 4:00 pm

On Monday, the entire Food Republic team decamped to New York’s West Village for a daylong test kitchen, where editors prepared (and photographed) a range of dishes while chefs from around the city stopped by for interviews. And when the work was done? A party of course, with chefs from 17 restaurants providing both sweet and savory pies. Seriously, 17. Here are some photos from the party at Little Owl: The Venue.

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.

I love using buckwheat groats for cold salads — they have a unique and unexpected ultra-savory earthniess that just begs for something creamy and/or briny. I usually go with feta cheese, it's a natural pairing and since I discovered goat feta, I've been crumbling it onto just about anything. This healthy summer salad is my picnic go-to.

Nothing ruins a great picnic spread faster than terrible potato salad. You know the kind I'm talking about: overcooked potatoes choked with mayo, lacking acidity and salt and just kind of gratuitously there on the table like anyone invited it. This grilled potato salad with lemon, feta and dill is that potato salad's hot cousin from the big city.

Yesterday the Food Republic team decamped to New York’s West Village for a test kitchen, where editors prepared (and photographed) a range of dishes while chefs like Jamie Bissonnette, Alex Stupak, Noah Bernamoff and Daniel Holzman/Michael Chernow stopped by for interviews. And when the work was done? A party of course, with our friends at Starbucks and Black Seed Bagels providing sips and snacks. Here are some photos from the after party.

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.

This super-simple smoked eggplant fingerling potato salad recipe is great for cookouts because while you've got the grill fired up, you can toss a couple of eggplant halves on there, forget about them for a while, then remember them, think you burned them and discover that underneath that dark layer of char is savory velvety-smooth smoked eggplant ready to blanket your potatoes.

If you're going to sit down and watch a lengthy baseball game, grab a snack that will transport you right to the park without ever having to worry about leaving early to beat the traffic. Whip up some real nachos straight from the FR test Kitchen and stay through the handshakes.
