The McRib was brought back by McDonald’s recently, spawning great McRib news such as the invention of the McRushmore and a McRib how-to.
No Reservations may be in between seasons, but Bourdain is sneaking in a special holiday edition that follows his meal preparation adventures among other celeb chefs. (Semi-related: Bourdain also announced the winner of his essay contest recently. Check out the short and sweet piece that was Bourdain’s favorite but only 843rd among voting fans?)
Speaking of the holidays, leftover recipes are in high demand. Check out this gnocchi you can make from my personal fav Thanksgiving element, sweet potatoes.
