Bon Appétit focuses on what's "now" in the world of food, drink, and entertaining, while still giving readers valuable cooking tools, tips, and most of all, recipes. This food lifestyle publication looks at life through the lens of food & cooking in, dining out, travel, entertainment, shopping and design.
A Long Time Coming
A Summer Larder All Your Own • IT HAPPENS LIKE CLOCKWORK: Every year when gorgeous berries and peaches and peppers return to the summer farmers market, we come running, armed with totes, as if we’ve never seen a strawberry before. Our cooking strategy right now is all about turning that produce haul into sweet and savory condiments that will last the whole season. These low-effort projects—think bright pickles and stone fruit caramel—can all be done in an afternoon. And the best part: They’ll stay good for weeks (or months!), so you can liven up any meal at a moment’s notice.

What My Juneteenth Looks Like • There is no one way to commemorate June 19, 1865, the day enslaved Africans in Galveston, Texas, finally found out that freedom was real. But for cookbook author and producer Nicole A. Taylor, Juneteenth is a holiday of vivid routines and kaleidoscopic feasting, of honoring the past and making new memories, of sipping cocktails and walking barefoot in the grass. Here are her holiday must-haves
An Outdoor Upgrade • The very first item on our summer to-do list: Enjoy every last moment in the sun. Which is why there’s a second item on our to-do list: Make our outdoor spaces as pleasant as possible. So we’ve rounded up the coolers, candles, and servingware that will make any backyard/patio/patch of park grass worthy of the all-day hang we’ve been waiting for.

SHORT is SWEET and SAVORY • We’ve got things to do, places to be! Feels good to say that, doesn’t it? And while we’ll all be celebrating this Summer of Making Up for Lost Time in our own special ways, there’s one thing we can all agree on: We have earned the right to spend some time outside the kitchen. Which is why all of these dishes are designed to deliver maximum flavor in as little time as possible—recipes for a summer we’ll remember not for the time we spent cooking but for the time we spent eating with the people we love. What could be more delicious than that?
