The mayonnaise dressing for this potato salad gets pungency from mustard oil (store-bought spicy mustard works fine, too) and a hit of smoky-sweet flavor from bacon and bottled barbecue sauce.

Barbecue Shrimp Bagna Cauda with Crudités

New Orleans-style "barbecue" shrimp is made with Creole seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, beer and butter, but David Kinch switches out those flavors here for a garlicky Italian anchovy sauce known as bagna cauda. No actual barbecuing is involved in either version.

These juicy, saucy ribs are chef Floyd Cardoz's ode to his mother's pork vindaloo. "There's nothing more American than ribs," says Cardoz. "I wanted to make something comfortable for our diners in New York, but that still honored the dish I grew up eating." Serve these ribs with crusty bread to mop up every bit of the spiced, tangy sauce.
