[Photographs: Vicky Wasik] Cream pies are an American tradition dating back to the early 1800s, when they were invariably served in a flaky pastry crust and topped with meringue—the eponymous “cream” referred to the dairy in their custard filling. I’ve gone over the logic behind that convention before, in my explanation of why I top […]

A Day in the Life of a Dim Sum Cart

A Day in the Life of a Dim Sum Cart

[Photograph, video, and GIF: Natalie Holt] If you were a dim sum cart, what would you see? It’s a question we asked each other idly one afternoon, only to find ourselves increasingly obsessed with uncovering the answer. There’s an element of spectatorship that comes with visiting a bustling dim sum restaurant. You’re surrounded by a […]

[Photographs: Vicky Wasik unless otherwise noted] “The Japanese, who are probably the world’s greatest culinary aesthetes, don’t hesitate to serve a greenish-yellow glutinous mess over their rice and label it ‘curry.’” And thus Madhur Jaffrey, in An Invitation to Indian Cooking, cut down Japanese curry with the swiftness of a samurai sword.

[Photographs: Vicky Wasik] Back in 1878, a delegate of the Michigan Pomological Society bemoaned the sad state of strawberries “shoved into market before they are ripe. We know but little about the luscious ripe strawberry.” After a hundred and forty years of relentless cultivation, I’d hate to know what he thinks of today’s supermarket strawberries, […]

The Sneaky Ways Winter Weather Ruins Your Baking

[Photographs: Vicky Wasik] Most bakers know that a sweltering summer kitchen can wreak havoc on a recipe, but a lesser-known truth is that chilly winter kitchens can cause just as much trouble—albeit of a different sort. When kitchen temperatures dip below 70°F (21°C), pie and cookie doughs can end up dry and crumbly, layer cakes […]

[Photographs: Vicky Wasik] With a typical group of people, a game of “would you rather” will usually involve celebrities or fantasies, but the team here at Serious Eats is a bit unconventional.
