Pollo in porchetta

Pollo in porchetta by Frank Fariello

When I served this dish, several of my dinner guests were wondering what the 'secret' ingredient was that have this roast chicken such a special flavor. Of course, rotisserie chicken is almost always wonderfully juicy and luscious, but pollo in porchetta--chicken prepared in the manner of roast suckling pig--is something else.

Not sure about you, but the weather here has crossed the line from pleasantly crisp to downright cold at night. That's as good an excuse as any for some good, stick to the ribs eating. It may sound eastern European, but Italians, too, like their cabbage, especially in colder weather, and like to combine it with pork. The typical…

Cauliflower & White Bean Sauté

Cauliflower & White Bean Sauté by Yvonne Tally, Your Fit Gourmet

This is the perfect bed for any grilled fish. Of course, my number one is salmon because it is not over powered by the earthy flavor of the cauliflower. Great the next day added to a mixed green salad with the left over fish. Simply puree it and make a fast no-cream creamy soup.

Maltagliati with Tomatoes, Porcini Mushrooms and Shrimp by Fabio Bongianni

Ok, today a very flavorful recipe!! Maltagliati means "badly cut" pasta due to their irregular shape! I love Porcini mushrooms and they are abundant in Europe markets during the Summer and Fall.
