Israeli-born chef-owner Meny Vaknin of MishMish Café in Montclair, New Jersey, is making some seriously crave-worthy Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food, such as this braised lamb shoulder with caramelized onions dish. Vaknnin, who took home the top prize on Chopped Champions, marries the French techniques and expertise he learned in culinary school with the flavors, ingredients and memories of his childhood. A good slow braise is about as delicious as cold-weather food gets, so break out your Dutch oven and prepare to get cooking!
