Beantown

The best chefs know that beans can round out a meal with extra flavor and texture, and today we have two of the best chefs. Joey Campanaro of New York's Little Owl makes an amazing salad dressing chicken with escarole and bean salad on the side, and chef Ming Tsai joins his old buddy Sara to make black bean scallops and zucchini. Sara then takes to the woods to search for edible wild plants with a professional forager who sells her finds to New York's top chefs. Recipes: Salad dressing chicken; Escarole and bean salad; Black bean scallops and zucchin.

Simple Elegance

Sometimes all you need are a few simple ingredients to make a fast weeknight meal worthy of a dinner party. That’s what I’m doing with my Pork Medallions with Prunes in a Spicy Mustard Cream Sauce.

Holiday Sides

The winter is full of big family meals where you really have to be on your game to get food on the table all at once. Sara shows a little love to the unsung heroes of the big meal: the sides. She's got delicious winter vegetables like shredded butternut squash with dates, Brussels sprouts with panko breadcrumbs and a creamy tahini sauce, plus a creamy root vegetable soup that can stand on its own as a main course or serve as a first course. And for the hungry cook: apple nutmeg bites to tide you over until dinnertime.
