What’s the next best thing you never ate?
The Food Network Kitchens staff might know. We see (taste and smell) ingredients and products just before they take their place in the national palate. Sometimes one of our on-air chefs brings them into our kitchen, sometimes we find them during restaurant dinners or in grocery stores, at home and away. Each month we’re going to share one with you, along with tips or recipes. And we know that many of you devote a good amount of time to exploring, tasting or just getting dinner on the table, so let us know what you find that might just be the next best thing we never ate.
You won’t eat Petrossian’s caviar powder by the spoonful, because just a little dusting of this dried caviar gives a salty, slightly fishy kick to all the classic caviar partners. The dried caviar buttons come in their own mill, so you can grind them over just about anything. We tried it on scrambled and soft-boiled eggs — we like the brininess against the cream and butter, and the heat from the eggs releases the flavors of the powder. Other possibilities? Deviled eggs, seared or smoked scallops, pasta, baked or boiled potatoes (a little crème fraiche wouldn’t hurt, either), crostini with fresh ricotta, tomato salad and crudo.

Perhaps cooking for a wake would have been easier after all.
On Sunday night’s episode, Team Bobby drew what was arguably the short straw of the live television themes. Guy gave them the challenge of Cooking for Kids, while Team Alton and T...

When Bob and Susie declared that Team Bobby and Team Giada were both winners of the Guy Fieri live show challenge, it was bad news for Team Alton. All four members faced the Producers’ Challenge and the pitch room, where no matter what happened, one teammate would be going home. Alton went to bat for all of his finalists: “Every one of these people is going to make your brain tie up in knots. You’re not going to be able to let one of them go,” he told Bob and Susie.
But they had to pick someone, and in the end, Judson Allen bid farewell to the team. Judson had recently turned a corner with his new POV, focusing on healthy food and his personal weight-loss journey, but he continued to struggle with his authenticity on camera.
Before heading home, Judson reflected on the experience of working with Alton: “I don’t think words can sum up how much I have valued his mentorship.”
Bob and Susie also share their take on Alton as team leader: “He’s getting so attached to his team. When they suffer, he suffers. I don’t think people see that side of Alton,” says Bob.

This is a good recipe when you feel like having a few late spring-early summer tomatoes when they are not yet at the height of the season. I find this is a simple and tasty way to extract the maximum flavor from them. I like to take my time with this recipe and work with the grill when it’s not so hot. I really like grilling something and blending that charred flavor into others. That’s why I dig this soup.

Hot tips from Food Network Kitchens’ Katherine Alford:
Instead of the usual penne or macaroni, try stuffed pasta like ravioli, tortellini or pierogi in a pasta salad. Stick to cheese varieties (meat-filled pasta isn’t as appealing cold) and choose a subtle dressing that won’t overpower the filling, like the lemony one in this Ravioli Salad from Food Network Magazine.
With Judson’s departure this week, Team Alton and Team Bobby are both down to three members. Team Giada is holding the lead with four finalists still standing — two of whom continue to dominate our weekly Fan Vote. This week, Martita Jara an...
