"There's something that goes on with refrigeration and pizza dough," observes Jon Jackson, one of the Food Guys. Other Food Guy Greg Patent agrees and gives this phenomenon a name: it's cold fermentation, and you can take advantage of it when you make pizza dough or sourdough bread. After you've kneaded the dough, stash it in the fridge to give it additional time to ferment.

In an episode of "The French Chef" tv series titled,  "Steak Dinner For Four in Half an Hour," Julia Child introduced young Food Guy Greg Patent to a deceptively simple recipe for Aigo bouido, Provençal garlic soup. When Other Food Guy Jon Jackson encountered the same recipe in one of Child's cookbooks, he was taken aback by the first ingredient. "Two HEADS of garlic?!"

Yes, indeed. This sweet and delicious soup features two heads of garlic, fresh herbs, cloves, three egg yolks and olive oil.

It's Flathead cherry season in Montana, and the Food Guys are on a cherry clafouti kick.  "If you have access to Flathead cherries, now is one of those moments in your year that will only last a few weeks," urges Food Guy, Jon Jackson. Clafouti, the simple French dessert, features a custard base topped with fresh cherries and it's perfect for late July and early August.

Food Guy Jon Jackson tries out New York Times writer Melissa Clark's apple-barley "get together"  and declares it delicious.  Clark's risotto-esque recipe was inspired, but not limited by, the kosher cooking of her grandmother, Ella, who cooked "the greatest hits of Jewish cuisine.  She could simmer up a tender matzo ball and some succulent pot roast, but I doubt she ever met a barley pilaf, let alone thought of making one herself."
