Directions
  1. Heat your broiler.
  2. Remove a thin pickle from a jar.
  3. Set the pan under the broiler and don't touch it until the pickle chars. Mine took about 5 minutes. I turned it once.
  4. You will feel weird and like a fraud, until you taste it. Enjoy with steak, sausages, and chops of all kind.

Before starting Food52 with Merrill, I was a food writer and editor at the New York Times. I've written several books, including "Cooking for Mr. Latte" and "The Essential New York Times Cookbook." I played myself in "Julie & Julia" -- hope you didn't blink, or you may have missed the scene! I live in Brooklyn with my husband, Tad, and twins, Walker and Addison.
