We are now coming into the dead of summer, so it's time to pull out those great summer recipes and serve them out on that patio table, picnic table or in the dining room. If you've not spent much time on our Recipe page lately I highly recommend it. We really do have some great ideas. In excess of 800 recipes have been contributed by our customers, staff and chef partners, each showing unique ways to incorporate our oils and vinegars. Two of my summer favorites are listed below in this eNewsletter. This weekend I'm preparing both the Goat Cheese Mushroom Burger and Chef Andy's Peach Deviled Eggs. I also might get talked into a repeat of the Asparagus and Leek Frittata for the Sunday brunch we're planning.
I hope these recipes inspire you as they have me.
Enjoy, stay safe and eat well. We will be together soon.
