Hummus with Flatbreads

Chicken Dance remains in its coop today as we spotlight another ambitious member of F&W’s Chefs Make Change coalition. Alice Waters’s The Edible Schoolyard Project works to spread food education in public schools. “From day one, I knew I wanted Edible Education in all the public-school systems in the US, from kindergarten through high school,” Waters tells F&W in our February issue. “Somebody said to me, ‘You mean have EE, like PE?’ and I thought, Yes!” The programs give kids hands-on experience in school gardens, lunchrooms and kitchens. Befitting her cause, Waters's healthy recipe is delicious and fun to make: Hummus with Whole Wheat Flatbreads. You can help her mission, as well as other chef-run charities, by visiting foodandwine.com/donate.

Braised Carrots with Lamb

Today, we continue to break from Chicken Dance to spotlight the fantastic chefs of F&W’s Chefs Make Change coalition, and their new recipes in our February issue. Dan Barber’s Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, New York, was recently named one of the country's top 10 sustainable restaurants by Food Republic, and his cause is the Stone Barns Center for Food & Agriculture. Through programs offered to children and farmers alike, as well as agricultural research, the center hopes to improve the way America eats and farms. Inspired by the incredibly sweet and delicious carrots grown at Stone Barns, Barber created Braised Carrots with Lamb, which emphasizes the vegetable and uses the lamb for a rich, meaty sauce. You can support Stone Barns Center as well as other chef-run charities by visiting foodandwine.com/donate.

Braised Pork with Cherry Gravy

Today, Food & Wine launched Chefs Make Change, a coalition of 10 superstar chefs who are helping to make the world a better place. One of these philanthropists is Michel Nischan, who happens to be guest editing on sustainability topics over at Food Republic all week. His foundation Wholesome Wave strives to make fresh, locally grown produce available in underserved communities. In our February issue, Nischan describes one of Wave’s latest initiatives, a fruit and veg “prescription” program: “Doctors in underserved communities can give an entire at-risk family a farmers’ market voucher that will allow them to increase their fresh-produce consumption by one to two servings a day.” In celebration of his cause, we’re taking a rest from the Chicken Dance this week to spotlight charities and the amazing recipes shared by these formidable chefs, including Nischan’s gorgeous Braised Pork with Cherry Gravy. In preparation for cooking it tonight, you can donate to Nischan’s cause and other chef-run charities by visiting foodandwine.com/donate.

Chicken Thighs with Lentils

New York City cassoulet enthusiasts will slow-cook their hearts out this Sunday for the fourth-annual cassoulet cook-off at Jimmy's No. 43, where both amateur and professional chefs will face off for the win. Tickets for the event can be purchased for $20 at the restaurant on the day of the cook-off, with all proceeds going to the Greenmarket’s Farm Hurricane Relief Fund. Those who can't make the event can prepare a quicker dish at home that recalls the heartiness of the famous French casserole: chicken thighs with lentils and chorizo.

Bobby Flay's Phenomenal Chicken Cutlets

Warning: Test Kitchen Tease snapshots may cause cravings, lip-smacking and an unshakeable desire to cook.

Bobby Flay’s Bar Americain in New York City features a rich special every Thursday: chicken cutlet, American triple cream cheese, Southern ham and arugula. The deconstructed version of classic chicken cordon bleu also stars in Clarkson Potter's fall release Bobby Flay’s Bar Americain Cookbook. Our test (left) came out golden brown and unbelievably juicy. But what elevated the dish were the toppings—lusciously creamy cheese (we used Camembert), salty country ham and a fresh peppery arugula salad. The recipe is in Bobby’s book, but if you don't have it yet, here’s a lovely riff on chicken cordon bleu from our own Test Kitchen Supervisor, Marcia Kiesel: Cheese-Stuffed Chicken Cutlets with Mustard Sauce.

Sriracha Chicken Wings

Superstar Iron Chef and food-TV powerhouse Michael Symon will make a 2,500-square-foot contribution to the rapidly improving airport dining scene this spring when he opens Bar Symon at the Pittsburgh International Airport. Eater links to the release, which explains that the menu will feature Symon’s creative comfort food including his famous egg-topped Lola Burger. Another one of the chef’s addictive innovations, these Spicy Sriracha Chicken Wings swap traditional hot sauce for his Thai condiment obsession—and you won't have to fly somewhere to try them.

F&W’s month of Iconversations continued today with a live chat on our Facebook wall with chef Eric Ripert. Best known for his extraordinary seafood at Le Bernardin in New York City, the French chef’s globetrotting show on PBS, Avec Eric, has shown that his talent stretches far beyond fish. In his exotic take on a traditional Burgundian coq au vin, Ripert uses coconut milk to add richness to the cozy winter stew.

Chicken-and-Leek Stew

Tonight at 10 p.m. ET, Jamie Oliver will star on BBC America in his new series, Jamie’s American Road Trip. His trip begins in Louisiana with an alligator-wrestling grandma and takes him on adventures across the country, from underground supper clubs in New York City to a cowboy cookout in Wyoming. Here’s hoping the lovable British chef’s new show is as successful as his light and incredibly simple chicken-and-leek stew.

Slow Cooker Chicken

Slow Cooker Chicken

Today is the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. Rather than mourn thebrief daylight hours, we suggest relishing the extra-long evening with Marcia Kiesel’s recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic. The three-and-a-half-hour cooking time (with only 25 minutes of active prep) yields cozy, garlicky smells and results in a supertender, intensely comforting chicken stew.
