One of our listeners, Fred, sent this to us. It looks like a lot of work but YUM! Just click on the photo to get the recipe.
Here’s some videos from my trip to Italy. I took some video clips on my IPhone, and Julie pieced them together afterward. Our chef Rita taught us how to make pasta by hand and how to make a ragu! These videos show the ragu, but we later made some tortellini with a ricotta filling. ENJOY!
I love food that is inspirational and this dish just did it for me. I was watching Ming Tsai on PBS today and he was visiting Morimoto, Iron Chef, at his restaurant in Napa Valley. Morimoto took a fish, painted some edible food coloring on its head and tall. Yellow on the head and green on the tail then placed a white towel on top. He then painted with a brush an eye and added some embellishments. Next comes the sashimi, then amazing veggies drizzle some olive oil and house made soy sauce and WOW! So fresh, I love it.

Allow me to introduce you to a Double made with garbanzo beans, a street food of Trinidad.
This is from the NY Times, “The Butcher Carves a Turkey”. Ray Venezia, butcher at Fairway Market in NY. We saw it on Brian Williams News Cast and thought it might help make your Turkey carving to a new height.
I found these great videos demonstrating how to make a turkey. First I highly recommend brining the turkey, chicken or pork whenever you are going to make those meats. Even if it is for an hour it is worth it. You can flavor the brine the way you like. This video uses bourbon for the turkey, cool idea, you can also use citrus, spices etc. Try and brine overnight.
