A loaf of gluten-free pumpkin bread lying on a table with 3 slices, with a butter knife and flowers in the background.

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread

A purple napkin with a white plate on top, with a slice with potato rosemary focaccia garnished with rosemary and with a fork on top.

An apple tart Tatin with a shortcrust pastry bottom, sitting on a piece of parchment paper with drips of caramel

A wooden table with a white plate with parchment paper and Jim Lahey's white pizza, with a stack of glasses in the background.

Jim Lahey’s White Pizza

A superlative—and unconventional—white pizza with a sheen of béchamel, a trio of cheeses, and a magnificently thin and boldly charred crust. So long, takeout.

A plate with parchment paper filed with squares of vegan walnut fig bars.

A wire rack on a piece of parchment, with 3 croquettes madame muffins sitting on top.

Croque Madame Muffins

A nifty little ooh- and aah-inducing riff on the classic croque madame that’s perfect to assemble ahead of time for big batch brunches.
