Translated to "cheese and pepper pasta" in Italian, this authentic and impressive pasta dish has become a go-to main course for every palate, from kids to sophisticated foodies. It's luscious, satisfying, and incredibly easy, made mostly with ingredients you likely already have. The pepper is the star of this dish, we suggest using Tellicherry Black Peppercorns, one of the best peppercorn varieties in the world. It has a more complex flavor with a bit less of an initial kick than standard black peppercorns. Serve with a mixed green salad and you have dinner on the table!
A great snack, appetizer, salad topping, or addition to a cheese board! We used white sesame seeds and finished with honey, warmed with fresh oranges and a drizzle of olive oil. This is a very flexible recipe and low cost recipe, you can cut your feta into any shapes and season with any additional herbs + spices. No added salt in this dish as feta is plenty salty on it's own.
Samosas are an Indian delicacy, and street food! The crispy triangle shells perfectly encase a fluffy potato and pea filling loaded with spices. These pack a little heat, but are often served with a cooling chutney or a curried ketchup. We made two edits to turn this traditional pastry into a quick and easy snack. 1)We used ground spices + warmed them in ghee, instead of using whole spices, toasting, and grinding. 2) We used empanada wrappers instead of making fresh dough, egg roll wrappers would work too! A samosa specific dough is pretty simple, and often uses Ajowan seeds or Caraway seeds- great to try if you have the time!
This year we've combined two favorites- French Onion Soup meets Potatoes au Gratin. French Onion soup is such a labor of love that is so great at warming you up from the inside out. The creamy caramelized onions with the gooey funky cheese is an unmatched combination! But when it comes to hosting a crowd, it can be tricky to collect enough oven safe crocks to get everyones french onion under the broiler and ready to serve.
A delicious bite of flaky phyllo filled with creamy, garlicky spinach and feta deliciousness. Including SKORDO Tzatziki Spice Blend elevates the flavor with premium garlic, dill, onion, and lemon zest. We love serving these for holiday parties - there are never any left!
This new New England Desserts cookbook has led us to some of the coziest bakes this season - all full of local flavors! Juniper is a delightful piney + peppery addition to these rosemary herbed cookies. Since this dough requires some chilling time, you can absolutely start making them now and leave the parchment log in the freezer until you start hosting this holiday season - making for an easy slice + bake later on.
A stunning dish with flavors as captivating as the colors of the season. Here we perfumed the couscous with warm, whole spices, roasted the vegetables to heighten their natural sweetness, and balanced those flavors with bright sumac and lemon dressing and sweet-warm-salty Baharat spiced pistachios. We tossed it all together with arugula create a beautifully bright salad, perfect for crispy fall weather.
Comforting, complex, and perfectly balanced. Enjoy with a glass of merlot.
Dumplings, Potstickers, Wontons- the choice of wrapper, cooking technique, filling, and folding style determine what's what but they are truly all delicious! Our new dried Stir Fry Mushroom Blend of shiitake, wood ear, paddy straw, and oyster mushrooms were perfect for this recipe. Our Asian Sesame Tuna Rub is the perfect complimentary seasoning for a dipping sauce and if you're feeling ambitious- Bowls & Broths offers a series of dumplings wrapper recipes and techniques.
Our new mushroom blends allow for gourmet mushroom meals any time of year. For this risotto we used the Woodland blend of morels, boletes, oyster mushrooms, chanterelles and lobster mushrooms. Paired with our salt-free Poultry Seasoning, we were able to balance the sodium content from the cheese and enjoy cozy fall flavors.
Enjoy delicious sweet and savory galettes with your favorite local produce. Here we used our reliable food processor crust recipe, withheld most of the sugar, and had two beautiful tarts/galettes in just over an hour. Enjoy!
