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.

Three Champagne cocktails with a Champagne cork an a plate of sugar cubes beside the drinks.

Champagne Cocktail

The quintessential something to sip at an elegant soirée, a large party, or just because it’s a random Tuesday night.

Dried fruit and nut cake cut into three slices on a cutting board on marble

Dried Fruit and Nut Cake

Chock-full of crunchy nuts and moist dried fruit, this cake is a taste sensation. May we suggest a choice of apricots, plums, pears, or peaches?

Three pieces of roasted bone marrow sprinkled with salt in a metal roasting pan.

Roasted Bone Marrow

Though traditionally a first course, bone marrow is sufficient enough to be both first course and last course. And maybe each course in between.

Two eggnogs in glasses with a gingerbread star on the lip and a rim of cinnamon.

Easy Eggnog

Ever since trying this eggnog, we can’t make it through the holiday season without it. All the richness. None of the cloying sweetness or regret-it-the-next-day heaviness.

Three bowls of fennel potato soup, one with a soup spoon, beside a small bowl of salt.

Fennel and Potato Soup

A spectacular riff on the classic French potato and leek soup known as Vichyssoise, this is astoundingly good. So much so you may just find yourself raising the bowl to your lips.

A single basic crepe, folded into quarters on a sheet of parchment with two lemon wedges beside it.

Basic Crêpes

A simple, step-by-step recipe for the classic French crepe that can easily be mastered by anyone. Yes, anyone. Including you.
