Recipe: Cincinnati-Style Chili

Cincinnati is often called "The Chili Capital of America" for its 100+ chili parlors, all serving a version of Cincinnati's distinctive brand of chili. It's actually more a topping than a stew. Traditionally served over spaghetti or a hot dog, Cinicinnati chili is also unique in its eclectic blend of spices and the addition of unusual ingredients like cocoa (or chocolate) and molasses. Kidney beans, chopped onion, and grated cheddar cheese are the favored toppings, and oyster crackers and a bottle of hot sauce are served on the side. The good citizens of Cincinnati consume more than 2 million pounds of chili each year, and for good reason. Try out some Cincinnati chili yourself, and you'll be a fan, too.

Recipe: Cioppino

This hearty seafood stew originated in the Italian fishing community near the wharves of San Francisco, but it can be made anywhere there's an abundance of good fresh fish and shellfish.

Serve it with plenty of crusty bread to mop up all the juices--and pass the napkins!

Recipe: Classic Minestrone

In Italian,"minestra" means "soup," usually of medium thickness, while "minestrina" means "little soup," usually a light broth.

This classic version is full of vegetables and beans cooked in a combination of our roasted chicken and brown stocks, flavored the old-fashioned way with a Parmesan rind. Toss a handful of grated Parmesan on top and add a swirl of olive oil, and you'll be transported to the hills of Northern Italy, where this soup originated.

Recipe: Classic Vichyssoise

Cool, smooth, and rich, this chilled soup was invented by a French chef, Louis Diat, in New York in 1917 to celebrate the opening of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. He made it simply with leeks, onion, potatoes, cream, and rich chicken stock, and he named it after the city of Vichy, France, where he grew up. Garnished lavishly with snipped fresh chives, this elegant and satisfying soup makes the perfect lunch with a slice of French bread and a simple salad--or serve it as a first course for a special dinner.

We've dolled ours up a bit, flavoring it with garlic, onion, and ginger, and adding carrots, shiitake mushrooms, and thin slices of chicken. The result--delicious!

Recipe: Flemish Beef Stew

Flanders, a region in the southwestern part of the Low Countries (now divided between Belgium, France, and the Netherlands), has long been known for its fine beers. Cooking with beer is also a tradition there, and this stew, beef braised with thick slices of onion in Flemish-style dark beer, is an outstanding example. Serve it with a slice of hearty bread to soak up the flavorful, savory juices.
