I am quite a fan of corn fritters. They herald the summer with their sunny color. They are easy to make and always a winner at BBQs. The good news is that you do not need to wait for the summer season to have them. When using canned corn, run them briefly under water and drain. Frozen corn needs only to be thawed.
A versatile dish with great color and contrasting flavors done in a jiffy thanks to a pantry staple, canned Cannellini beans. Comfort food in many shapes. A satisfying vegetarian choice, a side dish to your choice of meats and a great pic-nic take along.
A great side dish to roasted meats. Serve this favorite from Liguria in Italy on its own or as a side dish with an extra drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
Batatas a Murro, meaning punched down potatoes, is the name of this traditional Portuguese dish. Potatoes “get to know your fist” while still warm and then drizzled with garlic olive oil and a dash of vinegar. Frankly, I rather punch gently with a coffee mug.
Romanesco is the little known member of the broccoli family. In my search how to prepare it, I soon realized that there were hardly any Romanesco recipes around, so I decided to create one. It turned out a delicious array of textures and a bright complement to your choice of roast meat. Great as a vegetarian option on its own.
To “julienne” or to “cut into matchsticks ” is a basic technique in cooking, especially in French cooking. It’s used primarily for vegetables. Its a type of cut that makes a long thin strip, resulting in a relatively short cooking time and a very appealing presentation.
