Fantastic early morning. Lidey Heuck gave us a new recipe for goulash (earlier mentioned) that is an Americanized take on the great Hungarian stew, with paprika-scented ground beef, bell peppers, diced tomatoes, macaroni and a healthful sprinkle of Cheddar stirred in at the close.
The paprika built me assume of the terrific food writer Arthur Schwartz, who was as soon as the restaurant critic for The Everyday News and later on became known as the Food stuff Maven. Arthur and I bought to chatting about the spice when I interviewed him for a story about rooster paprikash. I’d asserted that most paprika languishes in spice drawers, and is stale and flavorless as a outcome. To make a proper paprikash or goulash, I mentioned, the smart shift is to invest in some new paprika, bright and flavorful.
Arthur contradicted me. “If you seriously want your food stuff to taste like a Jewish grandmother’s,” he explained, laughing, “you’ll have to have to time it with paprika which is been stored close to the stove for at minimum three yrs.”
Which is to say, make your goulash currently with the spices you have obtained. Lidey’s recipe provides!
As for the relaxation of the week …
Priya Krishna made this recipe for Indian-ish nachos with Cheddar, black beans and chutney with her mother, Ritu, and it is become one of my most loved toss-collectively meals. Tortilla chips topped with black beans and melted cheese, then Jackson Pollock-ed with cilantro chutney and tamarind sauce? I bet you make it once again in the thirty day period.
We simply call Melissa Clark’s recipe for skillet rooster with tomatoes, pancetta and mozzarella “pizza chicken” on account of what it seems to be like when it arrives out of the oven: pink and white and browned in places, with basil snipped on to the area of the “pie.” It is a delightful weeknight feed and sophisticated to boot, like a hen Parm with a graduate diploma.
If you are of Central or Jap European descent, Ali Slagle’s recipe for haluski could not be your family’s recipe for haluski — buttered cabbage and noodles can be well prepared in lots of strategies — but it is delectable nonetheless. And if you are not of Central or Eastern European descent? It’s a great introduction to the delicacies. Study the notes under the recipe: They are heartwarming.
And then you can head into the weekend with Rick Martinez’s recipe for rooster enchiladas, which would make great use of a rotisserie hen. Rick says to use the breasts by yourself, but the birds at my grocery store are rather compact, and I like a combination of white and dark meat, so I go whole hog (hen).

Now, it has nothing at all notably to do with foods, but if you are in New York at some issue in the next couple months, I urge you to choose in the “Manet/Degas” show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which opens currently. I managed to get in early and invest some good quality time with Manet’s “Olympia,” enriched by my reading through of Jason Farago’s accounting of the painting in The Instances. Holland Cotter reviewed the display for us. My just take: Manet>Degas.
