1000+ hard-to-find items from around the world.

Classic slow-simmered ragù Bolognese isn’t a weeknight dinner option, but this simple tomato-free meat sauce can be tossed with pasta and on the table in under 45 minutes. For ease, we use Italian sausage, plus dried porcini mushrooms, which provide a meaty, umami-packed flavor backbone to our Pasta with Sausage and Porcini Mushroom Ragù.

Pita bread stuffed with spiced ground beef or lamb and grilled, pan-fried, griddled or baked until the meat is juicy and the bread is toasty-crisp is a Levantine favorite called arayes. For our version of Pan-Fried Beef-Filled Pita, we mash some torn-up pita with juices from the grated onion and tomato; the resulting paste, called panade, is mixed into the meat, as if making meatballs, to ensure the filling cooks up tender.

The savory-sweet carrot salads common throughout North Africa and the Middle East gave us the idea for these Chicken Cutlets with Shaved Carrot and Zucchini Salad. To make the colorful, no-cook salad, we shave raw carrots and zucchini, then toss the ribbons with cilantro, sliced shallot, green olives and a lemony olive oil dressing. The tangle of vegetables is a bright, toothsome side dish to accompany sautéed spiced chicken cutlets.

Classic Mexican tinga poblana is slow-cooked shredded pork in a sauce of tomatoes and smoky, spicy chipotle chilies. For this one-pan Pork Tenderloin in Tomato-Chipotle Sauce, we borrow that flavor profile, but instead of braising a tough cut of pork until tender, we start with an already tender cut—a tenderloin—and slice it thinly so it cooks in a matter of minutes.

Serradura, a dessert that originated in Portugal and is popular in Macau, is made by layering whipped cream sweetened with condensed milk and pulverized Marie biscuits (serradura translates to “sawdust”). It inspired this Semifreddo with Mandarin Oranges and Biscuits that looks impressive but is a breeze to make.

Our Charred Corn with Coconut, Chilies and Lime is perfect for cookouts or potlucks. It takes just 6 ingredients and a few minutes to pull together; the natural sugars and fat in the coconut milk speed the charring of the corn kernels. Lime and coconut are a natural pairing—whisked together, they make an excellent finishing drizzle that’s bright and creamy.
