Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chef John Coletta's Calabrian fennel salad with raisins and red finger chiles

    • Breadcrumbs on October 06, 2014

      p. 33 - John Coletta is the chef-owner of a terrific restaurant in Chicago called Quartino so it was no surprise to us that we loved this recipe. Simple and quick to prepare with big bold flavours. I topped it with a little fennel pollen. Definitely worth repeating. Delicious and quickly devoured by guests. Excellent for an antipasti table.

  • Double carbonara

    • HerBoudoir on June 05, 2016

      Best carbonara I've every had - the wine and cognac really add to this. Definitely repeat.
