Chipotle Meatballs by Rick Bayless

Although our inclination is to imagine them perched permanently on top of spaghetti, all covered with cheese, Italian-American style, meatballs are cross-cultural and take well to a variety of interpretations. From Middle Eastern kofta and Chinese steamed pork balls to albondigas in Latin America or the marble-sized polpettine eaten in Italy, meatballs are more than meets the eye. Below are recipes for meatballs made of tuna, lamb or shrimp; seasoned with tamarind or saffron; in soups or on skewers. These Chipotle Meatballs by Rick Bayless, like those served in Mexico City, include bacon and fresh mint, in a chipotle tomato sauce. No spaghetti necessary.

“A well-made croissant has a crisp crust and a somewhat flaky crumb that is soft but never doughy. Croissant is actually the missing link between puff pastry and brioche. Take puff pasty dough, add some yeast, and you have croissant dough. Take brioche dough, add as much as almost double the butter, replace the eggs with milk, and you have the makings of croissant dough. Some people think of a croissant as a pastry, others as a bread. Most don’t think much about it at all, they just eat it with great pleasure.” – Rose Levy Berenbaum
