Honey-Glazed Roasted Root Vegetables

The secret to this sweet, slightly tangy dish: the touch of sherry vinegar in the glaze.

Celery Root with Apples, Walnuts and Blue Cheese

This delicious winter salad combines all kinds of flavors and textures: crunchy, juicy, earthy, nutty and toasty.

Roast Beef with Oven-Roasted Tomato Salsa

Naomi Pomeroy’s roast beef browns beautifully because she adds sugar to the mustard-seed crust, which helps the meat caramelize. The salsa, made with roasted tomatoes, is a great, healthy sauce, though you can serve the beef with a drizzle of balsamic instead.

Potato-Leek Focaccia

Marco Flavio Marinucci splurges on a light brushing of California truffle oil, but this savory focaccia is just as delicious without it.

Curried-Chicken and Vegetable Pan Roast

“Chicken might be my overall favorite meat for feeding a crowd,” Kristin Kimball says. She sometimes roasts it with Indian spices she picks up on her biannual trips to Manhattan—like the curry in this one-pan recipe of yogurt-marinated chicken with butternut squash and brussels sprouts.

Sweet-and-Sour Catalan Spinach

This sweet-and-sour spinach side dish gets its satisfying flavor from the combination of honey and sherry vinegar that’s drizzled on top. It’s relatively light, which makes it a great addition to a hearty menu.
