Bring in Spring with These Bright Flavors

Welcome to Fustini's

March 2021

Just In...

Here in Michigan, the snow can be beautiful and winter brings fun activities. But at some point, we can get eager for warmer temperatures and more sunshine.

Yet no matter the weather outside or how many inches of snow that stick around through March, springtime can be found in the kitchen. With fresh ingredients and bright produce, you can bring a little bit of warmth and light to the dishes you cook up.

This week, we’re jumping into our own kind of spring break — one you can enjoy right from your own kitchen. These bright and lively recipes can help you shake off that winter cold and look forward to a new season.

Enjoy, stay safe and eat well.


Tropical Dreaming

Whether you are off to a warmer climate for a week of sunshine or are looking for ideas to make the most of a “stay-cation,” these recipes are sure to bring tropical breezes to your menus.

Let’s Get Together and Cook!

Celebrate the joy of cooking right from your home with a Fustini's Virtual Cooking Class. These interactive classes are led by experienced chefs in our community and invite you to discover new dishes and techniques right from your home. The class fee is per household location, so cook along with someone you are comfortable being around or plan to meet your friends virtually via class.

We can also help you cook with your friends virtually at a private virtual cooking class. Email denise@fustinis.com for more information.
