"Tell me what recipe I'm doing wrong."
Slate Assistant Editor
Every week in "You're Doing It Wrong," I share my opinion about the right way to prepare a certain ingredient or cook a certain dish. (Recently, for example, I explained why you are making pesto wrong: You're not using potatoes or walnuts.) As you might guess from the column title, I'm fairly confident in my opinions. However, I accept the possibility that occasionally (occasionally) there may be more than one good way to make a make a dish. During the Slate Reader Takeover, I want you to tell me which of the following recipes from the past year you want me to revisit. I'll read through the comments section of the winning recipe, consider the pros and cons of different approaches, and—finally—offer an alternative recipe to appease those who were unhappy with my initial offering.
What should I do?
This poll will close at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 12.
