Chicken Pot Pie

Classic, comforting pot pie gets an elegant boost with the addition of shaved black truffles.Landon Nordeman

I love chicken pot pie, especially in the winter when it gets cold, which happens even here in Los Angeles. At the Governor's Ball after the 2010 Oscars, we served our pot pies with shaved black truffles, and our celebrity guests loved it because it's just like home cooking, only more luxurious. It was amazing watching how happy people were when they cut into the puff pastry and that wonderfully aromatic steam poured out. Whether you can afford to make it with the truffles, or just use great-quality chicken and seasonal vegetables, it's comforting and delicious. That's what makes it a classic. —Wolfgang Puck, chef-owner of Spago Beverly Hills
