My family always ate family style, where the table housed glass Pyrex's each with their own island full of delicious food. These recipes are large dishes that are worth sharing. Dishes that are worth bringing friends or family over together to share a meal or to just treat yourself and indulge for one.
Grilled Cheese for a Bad Day with Scallion Mayonnaise
An indulgent play off the classic grilled cheese featuring melted gruyere and cheddar alongside apple and scallion mayonnaise oozing between two thick slices of artisan bread.
Zuppa Toscana Congee
Simple congee serves as the perfect base for the flavors of the iconic Zuppa Toscana soup from Olive Garden. The congee features a comforting base filled with ground pork, kale, garlic, and sliced potato.
Taiwanese-American Chicken Pot Pie
A classic chicken pot pie with a filling made from onion, chicken thigh, potato, and carrots — but seasoned with classic Taiwanese grandma flavors like scallions, ginger, rice wine, and soy sauce.
Honey Cashew Shredded Chicken
An easy, one pot meal filled with juicy soy and honey glazed chicken drizzled with a creamy scallion cashew cream. A very loose tribute to the delicious cashew chickens of Chinese takeouts.
Sweet and Salty Coca-Cola Soy Glazed Chicken Drumsticks
Tender fall off the bone chicken drumsticks slow braised in Coca-Cola, soy sauce, black vinegar, and fish sauce.
Scallion Whole Roasted Chicken
An homage to watching Ina Garten with my grandma. This juicy, whole roasted chicken is soaked in the nostalgic flavors of scallion, ginger, and childhood.
Salt & Pepper Taiwanese Fried Chicken
Fried chicken only from gua bao recipe. Crunchy, salty, peppery and delicious. An ode to night markets, this chicken's secret sauce (or batter so to speak) is sweet potato starch.
