Great morning. Lidey Heuck gave us a new recipe for goulash (above) that is an Americanized consider on the great Hungarian stew, with paprika-scented floor beef, bell peppers, diced tomatoes, macaroni and a healthy sprinkle of Cheddar stirred in at the finish.
The paprika produced me imagine of the marvelous food items writer Arthur Schwartz, who was as soon as the restaurant critic for The Daily News and afterwards grew to become identified as the Foodstuff Maven. Arthur and I received to conversing about the spice when I interviewed him for a story about rooster paprikash. I’d asserted that most paprika languishes in spice drawers, and is stale and flavorless as a result. To make a correct paprikash or goulash, I reported, the intelligent shift is to buy some new paprika, brilliant and flavorful.
Arthur contradicted me. “If you truly want your food stuff to taste like a Jewish grandmother’s,” he explained, laughing, “you’ll need to have to time it with paprika which is been stored close to the stove for at minimum a few years.”
Which is to say, make your goulash nowadays with the spices you’ve bought. Lidey’s recipe delivers!
As for the rest of the 7 days …
Priya Krishna created this recipe for Indian-ish nachos with Cheddar, black beans and chutney with her mom, Ritu, and it is turn out to be a single of my favorite toss-collectively meals. Tortilla chips topped with black beans and melted cheese, then Jackson Pollock-ed with cilantro chutney and tamarind sauce? I wager you make it yet again inside of the thirty day period.
We connect with Melissa Clark’s recipe for skillet rooster with tomatoes, pancetta and mozzarella “pizza chicken” on account of what it seems like when it arrives out of the oven: purple and white and browned in spots, with basil snipped onto the surface of the “pie.” It’s a delightful weeknight feed and refined to boot, like a hen Parm with a graduate degree.
If you are of Central or Eastern European descent, Ali Slagle’s recipe for haluski may not be your family’s recipe for haluski — buttered cabbage and noodles can be organized in many strategies — but it’s scrumptious even so. And if you are not of Central or Eastern European descent? It’s a wonderful introduction to the delicacies. Study the notes down below the recipe: They are heartwarming.
And then you can head into the weekend with Rick Martinez’s recipe for hen enchiladas, which can make excellent use of a rotisserie hen. Rick states to use the breasts by itself, but the birds at my supermarket are reasonably smaller, and I like a combination of white and darkish meat, so I go full hog (fowl).

Now, it has nothing at all specially to do with foods, but if you’re in New York at some level in the future couple months, I urge you to just take in the “Manet/Degas” present at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which opens nowadays. I managed to get in early and commit some excellent time with Manet’s “Olympia,” enriched by my looking at of Jason Farago’s accounting of the painting in The Situations. Holland Cotter reviewed the present for us. My get: Manet>Degas.
