Chef Christopher Nicosia,

I learned to make this tea from a Filipino guy that I used to work with: Lots of sliced ginger, honey, lemon zest, lemon juice, and mint leaves. Add water and bring it up to a boil. Simmer it for about 8-10 minutes. Don't strain it! Drink it piping hot and nibble on the ginger pieces. It's delicious and it really does feel great when you drink it.

Zicam and Emergen-C. I take the maximum dosage and then head straight to Da Vang and get an extra-large Pho.

Chicken soup from my mother works pretty well. Jägermeister is the cold remedy of choice for some cultures, and I like to believe in its healing properties as well.

Fresh orange juice throughout the day and mint tea with honey and lemon. And don't forget to gargle with warm water, salt, and red wine vinegar.

My wife makes me chop a few cloves of garlic, mix them with honey, and eat it in one bite.
