TLP Staff Picks: Best of 2016

TLP Staff Picks: Best of 2016
TLP's burrata recipe, featured in our March 2016 issue, was a favorite among staff members.

A few hundred recipes graced the pages of the Local Palate in 2016. These were some of our favorites.


TLP’s Broccoli Soup
“A cinch to make and super tasty.” —Peggy Loftus, Editor in Chief



Leftover Turkey Pot Pie with Roasted Vegetables and Granny’s Biscuit Topping
“Christina Balzebre, a pastry chef from New Orleans, created this amazing pie spread for us for our Thanksgiving issue. I love this pie in particular because she changed up the sizes of the veggies she used and made these teeny, delectable biscuits to top everything off. Yum!” —Jessie Hazard, Associate Editor


Thanksgiving Table

Dry-Brined and Herb-Roasted Turkey
“I was in charge of cooking the turkey for Thanksgiving and our guests thought it turned out great.” —Adam Burkholder, Sales Executive



Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

Peaches in Prosciutto Over Lemony Ricotta Salad
“I love the combination of peaches and prosciutto. A friend of mine made it for dinner the same week I accepted a job at the Local Palate—a total coincidence.” —Laura Mueller, Digital Marketing Manager

TLP’s Watermelon Rind Pickles

TLP’s Buratta

Gnocchi with Wild Mushrooms and Brown Butter Parmesan Sauce

“I’ve always wanted to make homemade pasta, so I attempted the gnocchi from Butchertown. The gnocchi was easy. Finding maitake mushrooms not so much.” —Charles BlaydesSocial Media Marketing Manager
