Heart Warming Minestrone

As much as I have fallen in love with the French array of pre-made soups which come in box form and feed a good six people with delicious heartiness, I was in the mood for a homemade soup. Smelling the soup cooking and stewing away and feeling the warmth fill the apartment as the snow … Continue reading

Barley Mushroom “Risotto”

This recipe is something I often crave. It’s based on one by Mark Bittman (hail, oh might food man) for a risotto style barley dish. It’s the same slow process as risotto but it’s barley so it’s got even more of a bite to it. I substitute white wine vinegar for the white wine to … Continue reading

They’re kind of like vegetarian chicken nuggets – same texture, even better flavor. Thank you, Pookie, for the recipe! Read on for the recipe and photos…

Vegetarian Primo Piatto – Tagliolini con melanzana e pomodoro

We had one vegetarian in our class, so Chef Andrea included this variation. Go ahead and use the same recipe for the pasta as the Duck Ragù entry and follow the recipe for the sauce! Maybe don’t pair it with the Eggplant parmesan because it would be so much eggplant… Read on for the recipe … Continue reading
