Posted on: April 18th, 2011

I’m in the Tokyo/Yokohama area of Japan and having some truly mind-blowing meals (and no, the whole town is not radiated and there is no need to fear the foods of Japan – the Japanese are particularly meticulous about safety and quality).  Chefs here cook from a completely different point of view, have excellent training,…

I love the new Truffle Thrills pasta sauces – delicious and super easy!  Just brush on breads, toss with pasta or serve with meats – the thrill of truffles and artichoke or tomato in minutes – and good enough for guests!  Here is the first dish I made with it – a combination of bruschetta…

Few dishes are as satisfying as schnitzel, AKA breaded and pan fried cutlets.  There are many styles from all over the world using anything from pork to veal, beef, chicken or turkey – topped with sauce, a squeeze of lemon or a soft cooked egg – I’ve never met one I didn’t like! Classic Schnitzel…

Great Calzone Simplified

Posted on: February 14th, 2011

A great pizza is all about the crust – ideally one should be able to hold a slice without it drooping from the weight of the toppings.  A great calzone is about the toppings – or should I say fillings, since a calzone is essentially a stuffed pizza.  So when was the last time you…
