These Are the Simplest Recipes We’ve Published This Year

Every Monday night, Bon Appétit editor in chief Adam Rapoport gives us a peek inside his brain by taking over our newsletter. He shares recipes he’s been cooking, restaurants he’s been eating at, and more. It gets better: If you sign up for our newsletter, you’ll get this letter before everyone else.

If it were up to me, every issue of Bon Appétit magazine would be the Simple Issue.

Select choice ingredients, futz with them as little as possible, season well with salt and pepper, and use a generous hand with the olive oil.

And as editor in chief of this magazine, I suppose it is up to me. But have you ever tried to tell Andy Baraghani what to cook? Found yourself entrenched in a recipe argument with Carla Lalli Music? Been stared down by Julia Kramer when she doesn’t agree with you and gives you that disapproving you-gotta-be-kidding-me look?

A big reason why BA has remained so strong these past several years is because of all the strong personalities who work here. If you ask for someone’s opinion, don’t worry—you’ll get it. Those unsubtle eye rolls by the editors in our hugely popular YouTube test kitchen videos? That’s not hamming it up for the camera; that’s all day, every day.

But what I’ve realized after these years on the job is that we’re actually better when we don’t agree. Or, at least, when we can acknowledge that maybe, sometimes, the other person is right.

It’s that creative tension that fuels our growth as recipe developers. Like the other day when contributing writer Priya Krishna pressed me on just what simple means— how what’s simple to an Indian-American home cook might be very different from what it is to an olive-oil-and-salt-and-pepper guy like myself.
