Shrimp with heads

(p.100) can be hard to find, but they add a depth of fla­vor to dishes. Look for them in eth­nic mar­kets or large su­per­mar­kets. (If you can’t find them, sub­sti­tute un­cooked shell-on shrimp.)

For help choos­ing sus­tain­able wild or farmed shrimp, go to seafood­watch.org.

Pan­doro cake

(p.103) is a tall, star­shaped Christ­mas bread with ori­gins in Verona, Italy. It has an airy tex­ture and sweet fla­vor. Tra­di­tion­ally, Ital­ians give these cakes to sym­bol­ize luck and pros­per­ity in the new year. Find them at Ital­ian and gourmet shops or on­line at

su­per­mar­keti­taly.com.

Pe­can wood chips

(p.92) pro­duce a sub­tle, sweet­ish smoke that pairs well with poul­try, seafood and veg­eta­bles. You can find them sold by the bag at most hard­ware stores, home im­prove­ment stores and su­per­mar­kets. If you don’t see pe­can, sub­sti­tute ap­ple­wood chips.

Pome­gran­ate seeds

(p.92), or ar­ils, are sold in ready-to-go con­tain­ers at most gro­cery stores. To seed whole pomegranates: Slice off the crown and score the fruit into quar­ters. Place in a bowl of wa­ter and break apart, gently sep­a­rat­ing seeds from skin and pith. Drain seeds in a colan­der.
