Classic Parisian Jambon-Beurre Sandwich

On the Paris endangered eats list is the Jambon-Beurre sandwich. Nothing more than a super amazing baguette with salted French butter and Parisian ham, it's the simplest combo but a good version is harder and harder to find.

Spicy Citrus Pickled Shrimp

I've got a thing for finger food. Or tapas. Small bites. Whatever you want to call them, I could easily have each and every party I throw be made up of teeny bites of this and that. And the bite I'm into right now are these Spicy Citrus Pickled Shrimp.

{Salsa Verde} Italian Herb Sauce

If you know Mexican salsa verde, well, this is not that. Italian salsa verde is a sweet-sour herby sauce that hails from the north and is traditionally served along heavy roasts and stews. That tradition exists for a reason (because it's delicious), but we like to use it all over the place from a...

Classic Americano Cocktail

Sure, we like the classic Milan cocktail, the Negroni, just fine. But sometimes the combo of gin, vermouth, and Campari can be a little too much. So when it's warmer out, we turn to the Americano, basically a Negroni made with sparkling water in place of the gin. It's crazily refreshing so it's r...

{Fiori Di Zucca Fritti} Classic Italian Fried Zucchini Flowers

Few places do fried food to the level of Rome. From the suppli to the Animelle fritte (sweetbreads), and the Carciofi alla giudia (fried artichokes) to (our fave) fried zucchini blossoms, it's hard to cross a menu that doesn't have at least one thing fried. We've long stuffed zucchini blossoms with ricotta (blended with herbs and lemon zest) but this way, with mozzrella and anchovies, is bold and unapologetic, a lot like Rome.

So, instead, I'll just say this: on my trip to Provence, I was eating this sandwich on the regular. There are countless variations, but this version is my favorite.

Classic Black Olive Tapenade

When Alex and Joann told us about their oh-so-perfect summer lunch in Provence, we were green with envy and we were totally in love with the sound of that tapenade. So, we set out to make our own and we kept it simple with garlic, lemon, olives, and lots of olive oil and thyme. It's a dream paired with goat cheese on a crusty baguette but, deliciousness aside, we're still jealous of the girls' trip to Provence!
