Mushroom and Leek RisottoRecipes
I’ve been craving a nice, hearty risotto so I’ve decided it would be a good time to make this type of dish during cold months. I had it in my mind that I wanted to make something with mushrooms and leeks. I wanted it to be savory and woodsy, encompassing the flavors of fall. I have a collection of nice dried mushrooms waiting to be used; some chanterelles picked by friends, and some dried porcinis that I picked with my mushroom picking club.

Quick Pasta Recipe: Orecchiete with Chanterelle Mushrooms, Sage, Walnuts, and Brown ButterRecipes
It’s been a very good chanterelle mushroom season here in the Bay Area this year. I’ve been on many forays with my mushroom club, and I’ve gone to secret collecting spots in the forest with friends. I have been dry sautéeing and drying my chanterelle hauls, and making things like this risotto recipe. The other night, I threw together this easy pasta dish.Orecchiete with Chanterelle, Sage, Walnuts, & Brown ButterIngredients2 cups of orecchiete 1 tbsp.

How To Make Panzanella (Italian Bread Salad)Recipes
I always forget how amazing panzanella is. This classic Italian salad seems somehow too simple — and too improbable — to be as good as it is. We’re talking about a mix of day-old bread and juicy ripe tomatoes with whatever veggies might be in need of using, all tossed with a light vinaigrette.

Rich No-Cream Wild Mushroom Pasta SauceRecipes
This rich, creamy pasta sauce was the result of an experiment. We wanted to make a creamy, mushroom-y pasta topping with no cream. We’re trying to watch our diet a little better, and while we were eating pasta there was no need to indulge in cream, right? Instead, the bulk of this sauce is white wine, broth, and mushrooms. We don’t use a lot of wild mushrooms – they are expensive, and just a few will do here to give flavor. The result?

Fiocchetti with Pears and Parmesan CreamRecipes
If you asked me 10 years ago after feasting at a trattoria in Florence on fiocchetti alle pere con salsa di taleggio e asparagi that one day I would be able to replicate the experience, I would have laughed in your face. Back then the only thing I knew how to make was frozen pizza. But time has a way of changing us, and that trip to Florence changed me too. Here I am 10 years later, recreating that meal of a lifetime.

How to Make Italian Grissini BreadsticksRecipes
Are you familiar with grissini? A far cry from their soft, chewy pizza parlor cousins, grissini are long, thin, Italian-style breadsticks. They are crisp all the way through and can be flavored with various herbs, seeds, and spices to complement whatever else you may be serving. You can wrap them with paper-thin slices of prosciutto for a classic presentation, but they’re equally delicious served just as they are.

How To Layer and Make LasagnaRecipes
Lasagna is perhaps the quintessential feed-a-crowd casserole. There are many ways to make lasagna, but here is my own method for making it. It’s extra-deep (you will need a deep pan), as well as cheesy, meaty, and really, really chunky with beef and sausage. This is a serious lasagna.I was so intimidated by lasagna before I first tried it. It looked like a process that would eat up my whole day.

How To Make Perfect 15-Minute Risotto in a Pressure CookerRecipes
Risotto is one of those delicious dishes that not enough people make at home because it has a reputation for being fussy and time-consuming. If you make it the traditional way, you have to spend about 20 to 30 minutes at the stove, all of it hands-on time as you stir and add stock, stir and add stock, stir and add stock. What about a delicious, creamy risotto in about 12 to 15 minutes that includes some precious hands-off time?
