Your Fix for Boring Weeknight Dinners Now Includes Chicken and Waffles

Drew, our accounting manager, is the type of guy who can bring levity to any room. There was one particularly “Drew moment”, not too long ago, where GP had to interrupt our weekly all-staff meeting to call out the cape he was wearing (a sartorial feat most of us couldn’t get away with on an average Tuesday). So when we asked what he cooks for dinner during the week for himself and his husband (a recent ex-vegetarian), we weren’t surprised by his rather adventurous choices (ahem, ginger turmeric chicken). We also feel pretty good about taking some credit for inspiring Drew to get in the kitchen and fry chicken on his own.

Drew's Picks

  • Adobo Fried Chicken and Waffles

    “OK, so this was my first time frying chicken…I had to pour one out for the two drumsticks that were sacrificed in the making of this dish. It was a little bit more involved of a process than I anticipated, but it paid off: The chicken was great and the waffles were the best I’ve ever had.”


  • Radish and Butter Tartine

    “I made this for goop’s spring social. People see radishes and they immediately think: healthy and fancy.* I added the optional arugula, definitely took things to the next level.”

    *Editor’s Note: Drew’s tartines were an office hit.


  • Creamy Avocado Pasta

    “I don’t usually buy fresh basil—unless you’re making a sh*t-ton of pesto, it’s hard to get through all of it before it goes bad. So for this, I ended up using dry basil and supplementing with fresh spinach, and I loved it. It was super easy and it took me 20 minutes.”


  • Ginger Turmeric Chicken and Squash Bowl

    “This was all about the timing, for me: While the brown rice was cooking, I was able to quickly prep the chicken, and everything else—plus play some video games—and I wasn’t rushed at all. My brother is allergic to fish sauce, so I had to use soy sauce instead, and the flavor was still great.”
