Have the omnipresent sniffles, short days, and snow (if applicable) got you down? Then check out what some of the best chefs today are cooking up to help you power on through to spring.
We've rounded up some old favorites, as well as some new recipes, courtesy of BlackboardEats, that we think will help you get through the long nights of winter. Michael Mina goes all the way with his Kobe-style rib-eye poached in clarified butter, and Laurent Tourondel tantalizes the palate with an irresistible roasted veal chop with black trumpet ragout. And no indulgent meal is complete without a little dessert: Make sure to save room for Mario Batali's sour cherry torta di uova. Just saying it out loud ought to get you a little excited.
And while the ingredients in these recipes might sound extravagant or expensive, don't look at it as a pricey night in, but rather, dining out on the town without the hefty price tag. There you have it. Now, to the kitchen!
