In Season: Brussels Sprouts


Oh, the Brussels sprout. This once-maligned vegetable is certainly having its day. As a testament to its popularity, this member of the cabbage family is showing up on menus all over town. I’m convinced there’s no better way to embrace the winter season than to taste my way through iterations of the sprout. Here, four of my current favorites.

Tip: When cooking at home, this is my definitive recipe for Brussels sprouts (thanks David Chang).
