Culinary SOS: Nani's tortino di fagiolini

Dear SOS: My family recently vacationed in Jackson Hole, Wyo., and our favorite meal by far was at Nani's Cucina Italiana. The surprise star of the evening was the tortino di fagiolini, a delicious green bean tart that reminded us of a refined Italian version of green bean casserole. Maybe you can convince them to share the recipe?

Recipe: Curried chickpeas from Joan's on Third

Dear SOS: I am utterly obsessed with the curried chickpeas at Joan’s on Third. They are the best curried chickpeas I've ever had. Every time I go there I order them as part of the salad trio (a selection of three salads from their daily specials on the marketplace menu). I should know by now that I should order just the chickpeas because they're all I ever want to eat (well, that and a number of things from the bakery).

AOC's black kale dish is a savory feast

CULINARY SOS

AOC's black kale dish is a savory feast

Dear SOS: Last winter, my sweetheart and I went to AOC early in the evening on a gloomy, chilly day. We polished off our feast, and although everything was delicious, the cavolo nero was so melt-in-your-mouth tender and elegantly simple that I swear I can still taste it. I've tried to replicate it several times (my family and I have definitely enjoyed my black kale experiments), but none of them has quite come close to Suzanne Goin's version. If she would share her recipe, I'd be eternally grateful.
