On the menu Dec 31 — Jan 6

Not only does turmeric have a beautiful, vibrant, yellow hue, it’s also got an earthy flavor that adds depth to meat and vegetables alike. Here, it’s combined with white wine as a braising liquid for juicy chicken thighs, which are cooked atop beets and aromatic leeks. Fluffy jasmine rice soaks up all the saucy goodness, while a drizzle of cucumber-yogurt sauce brightens this elegant and hearty dinner.
