Irish Onion Soup from James Klucharit of ABV Restaurant, NYC, Courtesy of Tasting Table

         If you don’t subscribe to Tasting Table (, you’re missing out.  The site is just over 4 years old but in that time, it’s gone from 50 readers a day to editions that cover New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC and Chicago and attract thousands of readers.  Local  editors are selected for their expertise in each city.  They have ‘tested, tasted, sipped or supped on’ whatever item is featured that day.  This year, in partnership with Williams-Sonoma, there’s a once a week feature that alone is worth signing up for. It's the Sous Chef Series.  It features some of the city’s hardest working chefs—they’re all sous chefs at prominent local restaurants and they get their turn to shine every Monday.  Visitors to Tasting Table meet the chefs, see what’s behind the scenes at their restaurants and are treated to one of the Sous Chefs own recipes. Not long ago, they featured a young chef called James Klucharit.

Dubliner Chicken with Pasta, Pancetta and Arugula

            Have you ever bought one of those massive bricks of Dubliner cheese at Costco and then gotten home and thought how on earth can I use all this?  Not that Dubliner isn’t a robust choice: Its flavor has the sharpness of a great aged cheddar, the nuttiness akin to Swiss cheese and the bite of a great piece of Parmesan.  But face it, the block looks like something from one of those government cheese giveaways.  So I was very pleased to come across a recipe which uses Dubliner to great advantage and gives you yet another way to serve that kitchen workhorse: the boneless, skinless chicken breast.
