This spring, Expo Milano 2015 will open the doors on the first world's fair dedicated to food. The United States Pavilion alone will boast a mammoth 7,200-square-foot working farm, and a James Beard Foundation-sponsored restaurant in downtown Milan will feature guest chefs like Tom Colicchio, Norman Van Aken and Barbara Lynch. If you can't make it to Italy, you can at least try the nine dishes from the chefs in this amazing lineup.
1. Apple Cider-Braised Cabbage
This recipe from Top Chef's Tom Colicchio is super-versatile: You can make it with red cabbage instead of green and serve it with a huge array of proteins, from seared scallops or fish to roast pork or chicken.
2. Kitchen-Sink Soba Noodles
Tossed in a spicy citrus-soy dressing, this recipe from Susan Feniger is adaptable to whatever vegetables you happen to have in your crisper.
