A couple years ago I was driving from Atlanta to San Francisco and kept walking into gas stations with big jars of pickled eggs. While my timid nature prevented me from trying them, I decided to cook up a batch of my own to see what all the fuss was about... And wouldn't you know it, they were delicious.

Headed to the home of the Iron Chef, we transform the Chi-town Style Hotdog into a spicy but sweet Bloody Mary. Sweet Pickle Relish replaces the acidity of lemon juice, while the heat comes from using grilled or charred tomatoes.
The Pickleback is the hipster shot of choice these days — crappy well bourbon followed by a shooter of pickle brine — and I don’t care what anyone says, it’s gross. That said, you can find pickled stuff in every bar in the world. They’re called olives. Why not branch out and experiment with the rest of the pickle universe? Try The Dirty Pickle, a variation on a dirty martini that uses dill pickle brine instead of olive juice. Despite its name, this is a really elegant cocktail.
Making a parchment envelope in which to steam a fillet of fish surrounded by aromatic vegetables may sound a bit fancy for just one, but cooking in parchment is actually one of the simplest and most effective ways of steaming, because it seals in the flavors. What a treat it is to have that golden-tinged, puffed-up half-moon of parchment on your plate, and then to tear it open and breathe in all the heady aromas. Moreover, you’ll have no cleanup afterward; just wipe off the Silpat mat and throw away the parchment after you’ve scraped and scooped up every last delicious morsel and its jus. If you want just one meal out of this, get about a 6-ounce fillet of flounder, halibut, salmon, red snapper—whatever looks good. Or, as I did recently, try tilapia, which is quite readily available these days and at a reasonable price. But bought almost twice the amount I needed, so I could play with the other half of the cooked fillet a couple of days later. I learned from Katy Sparks, whose book, Sparks in the Kitchen, is full of great cooking tips from a chef to the home cook, the trick of pre-roasting several slices of new potato so they can go in the parchment package. This way you have a complete, balanced meal-in-one cooked all together.
