In a Rush? Eat Well with These Easy Recipes

Welcome to Fustini's

March 2021

Just In...

Between work, family, hobbies and numerous other responsibilities, sometimes meal planning can just be a chore. There may be some days we just want to heat up a frozen meal in the microwave or grab a granola bar just for something quick before our next activity or thing to do. I know I’ve had times where I just needed convenience for a meal.

If you’ve found yourself short on time or energy to whip up a full dinner, we’ve got some great ideas for you. This week, we’re giving you some delightful and nutritious meal ideas that are both quick and easy to create in the kitchen. With fairly simple ingredients and basic cooking processes, you can find options that work for both your taste preferences and time constraints. No matter your schedule, you don’t have to settle for flavorless foods. I invite you to try these ideas instead.

Enjoy, stay safe and eat well.


One Pan Cooking

These easy recipes are perfect for when you are on the go. Only using one pan makes clean up fast, too.

School of Cooking News

Coming soon! We have been working hard to bring back in-person cooking classes in June! The class schedule will be based on chef availability, design of each store's kitchen and the current Executive Orders to safely hold class.

While we are excited to return to in-person classes, we've all been loving our Virtual Cooking classes as well. We will continue to have Virtual Cooking classes for you to enjoy at home, especially with family and friends across the country. Are you wondering what a Virtual Cooking class is all about? Check out this blog article to discover the joy of these interactive events.

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.
