The only thing better than one acorn squash recipe this time of year is two acorn squash recipes. Right now I’m making risotto colla zucca along with a stuffed acorn squash for my family. These are my all-time favorite ways to incorporate this winter vegetable into a quick dinner before the vernal equinox hits and…

If you’re listening close enough, you’re always in position to learn something.   For instance, while Mario and I were on the book tour for “America: Farm to Table,” I wasn’t planning on picking up a new recipe. But I was listening at our events with fans, and one just happened.   It may not…

This time of year, when parsnip season is in full swing, I’m constantly asked for Meatless Monday recipes incorporating this vegetable. My parsnip frittata with chives and Pecorino exudes everything that a meatless meal should be.

I was recently inspired to look through old pictures of living in Spain during my high school years. Though I was born in Seattle and my family is Italian-American (with some French-Canadian thrown in there), I got my true food and wine degree while exploring all that Spain has to offer.
