All week long Jody Williams, the chef at New York's beloved Buvette restaurant, has been sharing recipes from her new book, Buvette: The Pleasure of Good Food. It's the last day to win one of five copies we're giving away -- and to add a little more Paris into your life.

Today: Pull up a chair and pour yourself a drink-- we're looking back at Jody's simple, soul-satisfying recipes. 

This week, Jody Williams has spoiled us with recipes from Buvette: The Pleasure of Good Food. She took us to Italy for beautiful boiled eggs and to Paris for beets and rabbit in elegant mustard sauce. And when we came home, she invited us to Buvette, her intimate, West Village gastrothèque, for soul-satisfying potato chips. Because above all, this is what Williams does best: humble, everyday food turned extraordinary. As we look back at the recipes she shared with us, we hope -- in true Buvette fashion -- that you’ll pour yourself a drink and stay a while.

I orgianlly posted this to fbook, under the notion we could correspond there. My go-to, go-for-the-soul recipe is my skillet burger. Made with 1/3lb 92%lean beef, I season each hand-formed patty with sea salt & onion powder. Cooked on high til' medium-rare w/no poking or stabbing, removed, covered, & rested for 30sec. Brioche buns are flash toasted under broiler, then layered w/burger, tomatoes, & onion jam(can be store bought). Serve w/pickle & baked carrot fries. Pair w/ice cold glass bottle of A&W rootbeer.

We have several family comfort foods that we all crave! Moms Mac n cheese, Bubbe's brisket, chunky chicken pot pie & everyone loves a BLT with avocado !!!!

My go to comfort recipe is Pasta white sauce and whatever fresh veggies I have: roasted tomatoes, squash, mushrooms, kale, etc. Maybe some olives and a little chicken tossed in. Grated cheese on top. Salad w homemade balsamic dressing. Warm, wholesome, and delicious!

A big, steaming bowl of my dad's menudo, topped with chopped cilantro, onions, a squeeze of lemon, and hot, rolled-up flour tortillas on the side for dipping!

One go-to recipe that is good to my soul (and my entire family's) is pork ribs and sauerkraut served with rye bread & butter.

Oozy, creamy scrambled eggs always soothe my soul. Three eggs swirled into butter and silky creme fraiche, cooked gently, and spooned over golden toast - brioche, English muffin - no matter. Topped with a snip of chives if I'm feeling fancy. It never fails.

Pasta with oil, garlic, and plenty of basil.

A simple steak and steamed artichokes with melted butter - reminds me of home!
