We love the classics. We reach for them when we need comfort, when we want a sure win, when we run out of other ideas. But what about new things? What about new innovations and new takes on dishes that might not be classics yet, but that are just as faithful and delicious as all of the old classics? Don’t these deserve the designation of “classic” as well? We think so, at least, so we have compiled all the recipes that we haven’t been able to stop ourselves from reaching for lately, and that we don’t see ourselves giving up on, well, ever.
