From the team that brought you The Splendid Table at APM Studios, The One Recipe is a pod devoted to that one recipe you keep in your back pocket. The one you send to friends, make for your mom, the one you entirely depend on because you know it’s going to work. We’re here to help you build up an arsenal of fast, simple and crowd-pleasing recipes, one episode at a time. Whether you’re cooking in a tiny kitchen and eating for one, or cooking breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch during a weeklong celebration with your entire family (and the kids), The One Recipe has a dish for every occasion. Host Jesse Sparks, Senior Editor at Eater, talks to some of the biggest names in food, including Sohla and Ham El-Waylly, Khushbu Shah, Eric Kim, Soleil Ho, Kristen Miglore, Pati Jinich, Yotam Ottolenghi, Stephen Satterfield, and… the list goes on. He draws out the sweet, funny and surprising stories behind everything from show-stopping whole roasted fish, Mexican pasta and crispy oven-roasted chicken to quick, soothing and essential dishes like yogurt rice, crispy tofu, Vietnamese sauces, and umami packed vegan and vegetarian entrees. And don’t even get us started on the dessert options, from Chinese baked goods, to chocolate chip cookies, to pastries, pies, cakes and tarts. Any day, any time, any craving, The One Recipe has got something for you. read less
