Microwaved Black Cod with Scallions and Ginger is my favorite recipe from Modernist Cuisine at Home. My mom originally showed me the technique and I really love it. It very closely mimics a traditional Chinese steamed fish, but takes only minutes to prepare without sacrificing taste or texture.
All week we’ll be telling you about the chefs’ favorite recipes from MCAH! Check back for more photos, stories, and tips.
Every member of the Modernist Cuisine team has their favorite parts of Modernist Cuisine at Home, but without a doubt, high up on everyone’s list was developing the chapter on chicken wings (and eating and eating the results). The final recipe results in a chicken wing that is both tender and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside.
In this video for chow.com, Director of Applied Research, Scott Heimendinger, demonstrates just what goes into making the perfect wing. Try them at your next tailgate partyyour friends will be impressed, and so will you. Click here for the recipe.

Move over milk and cookies, we’ll be leaving our Popping Buckeyes and Eggnog Foam Cocktails out for Santa this year. If, that is, we don’t devour them ourselves!
