Chefs hand over their best recipes
to Food & Wine magazine for good causes

The February 2012 issue of Food & Wine magazine is full of recipes shared by 10 superstar chefs.
   And not just any recipes – their best recipes.
   The chefs are offering their recipes in the hope people might donate to a charitable cause that’s dear to their hearts, and often one that they started themselves. It’s called the Food & Wine Chefs Make Change campaign.(To read more about it, and perhaps donate to one of the chef’s causes, visit - this will take you to a Facebook Page.)
   Alice Waters, Rick Bayless, Cat Cora, Bill Telepan, Emeril Lagasse, José Andrés, Michel Nischan, Art Smith, Mario Batali and Dan Barber each contributed two terrific-looking recipes to the magazine.
   You might be suspect that the recipes look hard to make, given they come from star chefs and they are their best recipes.
   It’s exactly the opposite. The recipes look quite simple to prepare. It's possible that either the chefs or Food & Wine magazine made each of them accessible for the home cook – whatever the case, I felt like I’d struck pay dirt when I flipped through them.

Here are some of the recipes I’d like to try from these star chefs. All of the recipes are available now at
- Alice Waters: Hummus with Whole Wheat Flatbreads, Red Kurl Soup
- Rick Bayless: Mushroom and Goat Cheese Tortas, Pork Tinga
- Cat Cora: North African Fish Stew, Warm Quinoa Salad with Carrots
- Bill Telepan: Latin-Spiced Chicken in Lettuce
- Emeril Lagasse: Pasta with Roasted Squash, Sausage and Pecans
- José Andrés: Roast Chicken Thighs and Lentil Stew
- Michel Nischan: Braised Pork with Cherry Gravy
- Art Smith: Turkey-and-Pinto Bean Chili
- Mario Batali: Grilled Polenta with Spinach and Robiola Cheese, Italian Sweet-and-Sour Chicken
