We always love to team up with Zingerman’s Deli and partnered with them to create an auction item of lunch for the highest bidder at a fundraiser for Food Gatherers in Ann Arbor. Our winning bidder was Sheryl Hirsch, who invited her husband, and their lucky guests to a lunch prepared by Monique and Misty. We paired Al Dente [...]
Think it’s time to revisit one of my favorite recipes from my dear friend Kasey Passen but with swiss chard as the leafy green to make a simple, delicious, and a 3 in 3 dinner. I’ll use BonaChia pasta to keep the recipe vegan. Pasta with swiss chard, bacon, and onions 1/2 bag Al Dente Pasta, any cut, any flavor 1 [...]

If you haven’t tried it, you really should. As you know, I love to construct recipes according to Monique’s [...]

Here’s an idea for the ultimate Valentine Pasta Recipe. Combine a bunch of ingredients considered to be aphrodisiac, all in one dish: arugula, almonds, asparagus, avocado, basil, broccoli rabe, carrots, fennel, garlic, ginger, pinenuts. I certainly have used each of these ingredients with pasta, but never all together. It will be very, very interesting [...]
Here are photos of a few of our pastas with bilingual labels that we created for the Canadian Market. Dennis and I will be heading to Toronto to do a demo at Whole Foods there. Looking forward to it.
