recipe

Sauteed spinach gives this classic basil pesto a wintery feel. Hazelnuts bring out the basil's sweet side, and freshly grated Pecorino adds a savory tang that Parmesan can't match. This blend will wake up any sleepy omelet.

recipe

Spatchcocking a chicken means scissoring it down the back (we leave the meaty backbone attached) and then flattening it. Smear it with butter, season with chunky sea salt, and place it on a platform of bread to absorb the juices for the fastest, easiest no-waste roasted chicken ever. While it's still hot, scatter fresh herbs over it and squeeze on some lemon juice for a fresh sauce that basically makes itself.
