Fish tacos are always a hit—whether served from taco trucks, roadside shacks, your neighborhood Mexican restaurant, or the comfort of your own home. Crispy battered fish make the best tacos—look for the freshest fish you can find. A flaky whitefish such as grouper, cod, haddock, or flounder works best.

Farm raised duck breast is as meaty and delicious as a good steak. This recipe from Table 10 has you roast the duck breast with apples and cinnamon and then glaze it with dark beer. The recipe calls for Abita Turbo Dog, which is a local brew in New Orleans, but any stout, bitter beer will do.
These ribs are first baked and then slathered in a Community Coffee BBQ Sauce that has strong coffee notes with an underlying heat from chipotle peppers. If you can't find Community Coffee, any good dark roast will do. This recipe was developed at E2 Emeril's Eatery in Charlotte, NC.
This dish is on the menu at Lagasse's Stadium in Las Vegas. These lamb chops are paired with a spicy whole-grain mustard and a quick pickled vegetable chow chow. If you're tailgating, make the chow chow a day in advance and just bring it along in nonreactive containers.
This may seem an unlikely combination, but trust me, for those moments when you're not sure if it's dinner or breakfast that you want, this satisfies completely. Waffles stand in here in place of biscuits--soak up all the buttery, syrupy goodness that is drizzled over crisp-fried chicken. This recipe is based on a killer version of chicken and waffles that is served at Emeril's Restaurant in New Orleans.
