A list of all the recipes Joanne Richard has tested.

A plate with five baguette slices, a knife, and white bowl filled with fresh cod brandade, garnished with parsley.

Fresh Cod Brandade

Fresh cod is poached in an herby milk-cream mixture and gently folded into mashed potatoes. It makes a perfect spread for garlic toasts.

Three jars filled with pickled green tomatoes and a cinnamon stick with two empty jars in the background.

Pickled Green Tomatoes

A little sweet, a little sour, and a whole lotta delicious. And so obscenely easy to make, the most difficult part will be finding the patience to wait before trying them.

A metal container filled with tart lemon sorbet and a metal ice cream scoop resting inside.

Tart Lemon Sorbet

True to its name, this tart lemon sorbet is lip-puckeringly sour and exceptionally refreshing. Finally, something to tuck in the freezer for you that’s safe from the kids pillaging it.

A white plate filled with tomato and feta salad with small bowls of freshly ground pepper, and olive oil and balsamic vinegar on the side.

Tomato and Feta Salad

A cleverly engineered salad made with everyday ingredients in a slightly unconventional fashion. No PhD required.

A white plate topped with a pile of lemony salmon pasta, sprinkled with chives

Lemony Salmon Pasta

We think of this gorgeous lemon salmon pasta as the Audrey Hepburn of pasta recipes given how it graciously brings both elegance and simplicity to the party.

A china plate with three slices of beef braised in red wine and sprinkled with parsley, and three roasted potatoes

Red Wine Braised Beef

There’s something magical that happens when you toss a cheap cut of beef in a pot with some wine and vegetables and walk away for a while. Alchemy of the most ethereal sort.

An eggplant timbale with one wedge cut from it on a white plate.

Eggplant Timbale

It may be a tad boring looking from the outside, but wait’ll you see what this eggplant timbale is filled with on the inside.
