Persian Cantaloupe Drink

Persian Cantaloupe Drink
Test kitchen director Farideh Sadeghin got the recipe for this refreshing melon drink from her Iranian-born father, who makes it by grating fresh cantaloupe and combining it with water, sugar, and fresh mint.

Avocado-Mint Shake

Avocado-Mint Shake

This chilly treat is an adaptation of one served at the Royale Eatery, a burger and shake shop in Cape Town, South Africa. A simple purée of avocado, ice cream, mint leaves, and ice, it's sweet, rich, and dense enough to stand a spoon in. Get the recipe for Avocado-Mint Shake »Laura Sant
Medianoche

Medianoche

With roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese, and pickles, this is almost identical to a Cuban sandwich, save for the bread, a sweet egg load that's similar to challah. Get the recipe for Medianoche »Farideh Sadeghin
Stretch's Chicken Savoy

Shrimp and Grits

Like the cooks at Crook's Corner, the celebrated restaurant in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, we recommend using stone-ground grits. They take more time to cook, but their flavor and texture are richer than instant grits. Get the recipe for Shrimp and Grits »André Baranowski
Rhubarb Tarte Tatin

Rhubarb Tarte Tatin

In the style of a tarte Tatin, rhubarb is caramelized until soft before being topped with batter and baked. Get the recipe for Rhubarb Tarte Tatin »Todd Coleman

Spring Pea Ravioli with Prosciutto & Pea Shoots

Dinner Party, Spring Pea Ravioli
Homemade ravioli is a great weekend project recipe. Make them on a Sunday and freeze them for the week ahead; you can pop them directly in the boiling water from the freezer—they'll just need an extra minute or so to cook.

Coconut Cake

Coconut Cake

Fresh coconut and its sweet water are the keys to this cake, passed down from SAVEUR associate food editor Ben Mims' grandmother, Jane Newson. A handy rotary coconut grater produces snow-like coconut flakes, but a hand grater works well, too.Todd Coleman
