Our weekly roundup of what the two of us have written over on Serious Eats.

"Dinner Tonight"Column


Green Tomato Curry with Potatoes and Garlic
Turns out Indian cuisine has a grand tradition of finding uses for green tomatoes, apparent in this dish with a "gorgeous aroma" of garlic.

Roasted Poblano-Potato Salad with Grilled Steak
The real star is the mixture of warm potatoes, poblanos, and sweet slices of red onion, dressed lightly with rice vinegar and olive oil and seasoned with a little oregano. For some reason, this combination is remarkably delicious, sweet, creamy, and smoky.

Warm Fig, Mozzarella, and Prosciutto Sandwich
The secret is to bake the whole sandwich in the oven until the bread warms and the cheese starts to melt just slightly.

Muffaletta Sandwich
Like an Italian sub, the muffaletta relies on something piquant to stand up to layers of ham, capicola, salami, mortadella, provolone--in this case its signature olive salad spiked with vinegar and shallots.

Bon Bon Chicken
The poached chicken is aromatic, tender, and juicy, and the cucumbers provide the perfect crisp crunch. But the sauce is probably the best part, with its numbing Sichuan peppercorns and Chinese black vinegar.
