Baked eggplant Parmesan. Lately, I’ve had one too many egg plant parms, where the eggplant was soggy. It’s more work, but I bread, flour and egg wash my eggplant separately, baking it with a drizzle of olive oil on high heat, for 20 minutes at 400. The eggplant retains its flavor and is crispy. I assemble it and I top it off with fresh basil, which I love. 🇮🇹💗

Roasted veggies are one of my favorite things to eat with a protein side or on its own. I like to use garlic infused olive oil and roast for about 15-20 mins at high heat….400. I top it off with black truffle salt from Umbria. 💗 🇮🇹

11/10/2021

A rich broth, made with delicious organic turkey, sliced garlic, mushrooms, onions, organic carrots, fresh tarragon, Himalayan sea salt and tellicherry peppercorns. I choose these peppercorns because they are more complex and pungent in flavor. I throw in a handful of fresh parsley at the end and it perfumes the whole soup. Or sometimes I’ll add a handful of cilantro for a different flavor profile. Feels good going down…. Now if it would only get a little colder. Where are you winter?

A sauce I grew up on… I roast the cherry tomatoes and sautéed the onions with italian spices. Low and slow. It’s worth the time it takes to bring out the best each ingredient has to offer. Put it over pasta, zucchini noodles, butternut squash noodles or used as a sauce for a chicken parm dish….

10/17/2021

As a child, I grew up eating these marinated peppers. I’d sit on the counter and watch my mom put the raw peppers on the gas burner, watching her skilled hands slowly turning the peppers until they would have pockets of burnt, blistered edges. She would then put them in a paper bag until fully cooled. Then she’d carefully peel them by hand, keeping the natural juice collected in the pepper from leaking out. She marinated it in Tuscan olive oil, sea salt, sliced garlic and a touch of balsamic from Modena. She would put this on my roasted eggplant sandwiches that I’d bring to school… which puzzled most of the kids around me. Back then, I would have gladly traded it for a pb&j, but that exchange never occurred. Ultimately, I’m grateful for all the learning experiences that brought me into the culinary world.

A European pastry platter where I added all of my favorites. I like fusing pastry profiles together, eg., red velvet madeleines, Rum Pizzelle, Coconut lemon tarts, coffee ganache genoise cakes, guava butter thumbprints…. It’s inspiring to combine two (or more) flavor profiles to see if they work and gratefully, they do. This is something I do at Christmas time, as a special order.
