Appetites: The year in food

Ingredients for a timpano
Heavy Table editor James Norton named his homemade timpano adventure as one of his favorite food experiences of 2014. Timpano, Norton wrote, "is a drum-like (thus the name) dish that is something of an Italian turducken: meatballs, fresh pasta, red sauce, salami, cheese, and hard-boiled eggs encased within a massive pasta shell baked in a bowl."
