What started in the 1970’s as a simple bean cooker is now a celebrated device in many kitchens. Whether you call it by it’s trademarked name “Crock-Pot” or simply know it as a slow cooker, this culinary tool means one thing: an easy, one-pot meal that cooks slowly over the course of several hours, without supervision.

Celebrate the start of the new season by heading to the farmers market. Take in the deep and vibrant colors of the fresh produce (purple, orange, forest green) and let your imagination run wild with possibility. As the temperature drops and it's once again safe to turn the stove on, let your home fill with the aromas of roasted vegetables, simmering soups and stews, and the warm scents of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Latin American cuisine uses hundreds of varieties of peppers to create beloved smoky and spicy dishes that transcend borders -- from poblanos to jalapenos to pasillas. Why, you ask?

According to legend, tres leches ("three milks") cake became popular in Latin America when the Nestle company printed the recipe on cans of its condensed milk.
Michael Cordúa, one of Food & Wine's Best New Chefs, served this version at the American Express Skybox during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, an exclusive lounge where AMEX cardholders could catch spring's hottest runway shows. Guests of the Skybox were able to sip on champagne and munch on delectable treats like this one as part of a menu curated from Food & Wine's Best New Chefs All-Star Cookbook - it's light, supremely moist and topped with billowy swirls of meringue.

This Labor Day, I was lucky enough to escape the hustle and bustle of New York City for a quick trip to Montreal. My mission: See if the Latin food scene was living up to the hype. The French-speaking and culturally-dominant region of Quebec isn't the first place you think you'd find good Latin eats, but just as Latin flavors have become mainstream in America, they're creeping their way into the cuisine north of the border.
