At Food & Wine, we're passionate about City Harvest, the organization that aims to help feed hungry New York City children and their families. To support the amazing group, editor-in-chief Dana Cowin conceived the Skip Lunch, Fight Hunger campaign, which asks people to donate the money they would typically spend on one day of lunch to City Harvest and help feed the estimated one in four New York City schoolchildren who face hunger every summer when free school breakfasts and lunches are limited.
Debuting today, the organization's first cookbook, City Harvest: 100 Recipes From Great New York Restaurants, features amazing recipes from top New York City chefs and restaurateurs, plus useful suggestions for transforming leftovers into second helpings. Among the fantastic dishes are Tom Colicchio's roasted beet salad, Cronut genius Dominique Ansel's warm pistachio molleux, and Murray's classic macaroni and cheese (below). A portion of the proceeds from each cookbook sale benefit City Harvest.
Murray's Cheese Bar
Classic Macaroni and Cheese
Murray's, the premier cheese store in New York, opened a cheese-oriented café a couple of years ago, and mac and cheese is one of the specialities. The complexity of this dish results from the mixture of cheeses used in it.
