It's best to use live mussels within a day of purchase. You can store mussels in a bowl in the coolest part of your fridge and cover with damp cloth. Be sure not to store them in an airtight container or plastic bag.
This hors d'oeuvre from "Easy Entertaining" in the December issue is tender rounds of spiced shrimp garnished with a fruity topping that are the taste treat of the season. Sambal oelek and sriracha are Asian hot chili and garlic sauces. You can use your favourite hot sauce and increase the amount to suit your taste.
A vegan dish is one that contains no animal products, and this curry is a full-flavoured example of the genre. Squash and red pepper provide brilliant colour and textural contrast to firm tofu in this one-pot dish. We use firm tofu in stews because it holds its shape well when stirred. If you aren't into fiery foods, you can use Thai Kitchen red curry paste (which we find milder than other brands), reduce the amount or use mild Indian curry paste. Serve over rice or noodles.
A fried coating of sweet potato starch gives this chicken its uniquely chewy yet crispy texture. Sweet potato starch is a specialty product in Taiwanese and Fujian cooking. It is available in fine and coarse grind; coarse is best for frying. Buy it at a Chinese or Korean grocer. No other starch produces the same texture, but if it's unavailable, you can use cornstarch.

Heat Rating: Fiery This dish is not for the hot-pepper timid: the quantity of dried hot peppers is essential for the classic taste. The well-cooked meat and the dry, concentrated sauce, with its chewy texture from lemongrass and toasted coconut, are of equal importance. Rendang must be served with plenty of white rice; a cucumber-and-onion salad makes a good accompaniment. Buying a whole roast allows you to cut the beef into large chunks, which are traditional for this celebration dish.
