Anna Scott, Recipe Tester

A list of all the recipes Anna Scott has tested.

Anna Scott

Anna Scott has been an LC recipe tester since December 2010. Her love of food was inspired by her father, who taught her that a meal isn’t just the act of eating, but rather an experience that involves all of the senses—the presentation on the plate, the warm smell of the kitchen, the lively conversations at the dinner table, and the texture of the bread that you break. A Le Cordon Bleu graduate, she now works as a personal chef in Atlanta and is writing her first cookbook, which will focus on seasonal meals and incorporating mise en place into your everyday cooking repertoire.

Cutting board with char siu pork--a pork tenderloin slathered with char siu sauce--and more sauce and the side

Char Siu Pork

A modern riff on a Cantonese classic. This leaner version relies on pork tenderloin rather than more indulgent cuts but tastes every bit as authentic as the real deal and is redolent of five spice powder, garlic, and ginger.

Fresh Peas with Mint

Is there anything that screams spring more than these lightly buttered peas with a wee bit of cooling mint on top? We think not.

Rhubarb Sour

Rhubarb Sour

A rhubarb sour made with gin is probably not how your grandma chose to use those sweetly tart spring stalks. Her loss.
