Killer Roast Chicken
The ultimate test of a good cook!
We pay great homage to the foods we eat by carefully preparing and sharing them with the people we love. To the cooks who prepare them, we are always grateful.
The one meal we consider the mark of a great cook, is a perfect Roast Chicken. Nail that, and you'll have our hearts (and just about everyone else's too).
Below is the simplest way we've found to turn what could be an average meal into a night in Provence.

Chicken Loves Cabbage & Sweet Onions
Here is a healthy, and tasty meal made from Chicken,Cabbage and Sweet Onions that is sure to surprise guests with the simplicity of ingredients and the complexity of flavors. Best if done on a grill but works beautifully on the stove top.
Mireille’s Lemon Chicken
We love this dish because it so easy to prepare and packs big flavor. We were recently doing a shoot and had a lot of leftover chicken cutlets, the day ran late so Pete whipped up this up for the crew. It was our first introduction to his mom's classic dish. We made lemon rice as a side which complimented the dish perfectly… Manny made a big salad, a perfect quick, easy and delicious meal.
This is a real easy one... you can make it with whole chicken breasts (bone in) or cutlets, it's ...
Chicken Meets Pasta and Broccoli
Pete came up with this recipe for a fast, easy, healthy meal that created leftovers for his daughters lunchbox!
We make this all the time for studio lunches. Great for a hungry crew or when it's just our gang.
Peter Klein’s Gnocchi & Quick Marinara
Here’s another recipe from our dear friend and chef, Peter Klein. We’ve shared more wonderful meals with Peter K. over the years than we can count.
You may find that this recipe appears a bit more complex than others we’ve shared, but it’s actually fairly simple and well worth a little extra effort. Your family and friends will be blown away when you serve this home-made dish up.
Who doesn't love rice? Pete's grandfather ( Peter as well but we called him Nono) made this simple rice dish all the time.
Rice alone is always a great side dish, its easily prepared but we find its often nice to add a little extra flavor. Here is one or our simple tips for making rice a little more “special”
Sole with Lemon and Capers
We made this simple, delicious Filet of Sole with Lemon and Capers recipe as one of the staples of the studio. It’s particularly popular when Pete and Manny would come back from one of their fishing trips off of Montauk!
We like our Lemon Rice Recipe as a side, with a big salad and crisp white wine!
Talk about easy & delicious! This wonderful side dish recipe came from Pete's mom. As a kid, he had “issues” with some vegetables so his mom added a little something extra to the carrots she would often make for family dinner. The result...Pete loved his carrots and we're pretty sure your kids and family will too!

Shrimp Pil Pil
A number of years ago, Peter went on a trip through Spain with his daughter and they both fell in the love with the country, its people and of course the regional food. Pil Pil, they were told, is an onomatopoeia for the bubbling sound Spaniards say the shrimp make when they’re served in a casserole of bubbling oil. This simple dish can be found throughout southern Spain and can now be easily enjoyed by you – its certainly being enjoyed by us!
