Total time: 40 minutes Servings: 6 Note: This recipe from Nancy Silverton was the centerpiece of a story by Emily Green. According to Silverton, the key to a great hamburger is the meat, which should have ample fat. Ask the butcher to coarsely grind 2 3/4 pounds of prime chuck (10% to 15% fat) with 4 to 6 ounces of prime sirloin fat (the combination should have 20% to 28% fat total). Though she offers three cheeses, she says that from experience, most takers go for Gruyère, 25% might take cheddar and one of a group will want blue.

Total time: 40 minutes Servings: 6 Note: From Nancy Silverton. Silverton says burgers are the perfect party food because the toppings can be done in advance, then guests use them to personalize their burgers. Though she offers three cheeses, she says that from experience, most takers are for Gruyere, 25% might take cheddar and one of a group will want blue. Crumble out enough blue to look pretty in a bowl, 2 to 3 ounces, and know it may go into salad dressing for the next meal.

A woman accused of stuffing her 5-month-old son's mouth with pepper to stop him from sucking his thumb was held without bond today after being charged with first-degree murder. Elizabeth Jewell, 25, was charged Tuesday with killing her son, Michael. Police Lt. Darrell Kitrel said Jewell and her husband, Edward, 39, reported Friday that the infant accidentally ate pepper and died. But an autopsy showed the child died of asphyxiation from swallowing "a whole lot" of ground black pepper.

Our word pepper comes, by way of Greek, from the Sanskrit name of a cousin of black pepper known as long pepper ( Piper longum ). While black pepper comes in little round wrinkled peppercorns, long pepper takes the form of curved stalks about three quarters of an inch long that consist of a lot of tiny, dusty, grayish, pepperish things. Probably in the beginning the Greeks were importing long pepper, some varieties of which are hotter than black pepper.

Black plum fruit comes through on the mid-palate and drives through to the finish. 14.9% alcohol. http://www.anglimwinery.com 2007 Edward Sellers Mourvèdre ($35): Dark cherry fruit with black pepper and a gamy "low note" to keep it interesting.

Whether you purchase your dried beans in a bag or loose out of a bin, always be sure to check them over and clean them before using. You can sometimes find stones or debris with dried beans, and a quick sort can save you from the trauma of a cracked tooth. A quick rinse in a bowl of water can also sort out good beans from bad or stale -- bad beans typically will float and should be tossed out. As for soaking, Food editor Russ Parsons says it's almost never necessary with beans: "Most of the time, I don't soak my beans before cooking them.

Whenever Italian friends come to stay, I've noticed they can go at most three, maybe four days before they can't stand it anymore: They have to have some pasta. If that means cooking it at a campground or beside the road, so be it. This is comfort food at its most basic. And if there's nothing much in the cupboard, well then that's why aglio olio (garlic and olive oil) was invented. Or for that matter cacio e pepe (Pecorino Romano and lots of black pepper). Here are three places to get that pasta fix. Gusto Chef/owner Vic Casanova grew up in an Italian American neighborhood in the Bronx, cooked his way around New York and then headed west, where he launched the contemporary Italian restaurant Culina at the Four Seasons.

Total time: 45 minutes Servings: 4 Note: The word "quelite" in Mexico means any native green with tender leaves. Amaranth greens, known as quintoniles, are abundant during Mexico City's rainy season from about June to September. Amaranth greens are available at select Asian or Indian markets, as well as at some farmers markets; fresh spinach or chard can be substituted, though cooking timing will vary. Feel free to use less chicken broth if you want the greens less juicy.
