Keeping Cool: 10 Minute Tricks of Great Chefs

Try Daniel Boulud's Quick Summer Melon and Shrimp.

         Mark Bittman’s 10-minute summer dishes in the New York Times so tickled my lazy bone I decided to honor Mark with this imitation. I’ve canvassed my pals -- great cooks and cookbook writers, friends and family -- for their best 10 minute trick to stay out of the kitchen (or at least away from the oven.) If you click on “Recipes” in the navigator at the bottom of this page you’ll find my own quick “Morning after Fruit Soup.” Email me your 10-minute recipe and I’ll post it here.
