    This week we've cooked up an eggplant dish that will make eggplant lovers rejoice and hopefully win over some eggplant skeptics! In this recipe, we made eggplant steaks by cutting, scoring and roasting our St. David's eggplants spiced with Zing's Zesti seasoning. Eggplant goes so beautifully with tomatoes and fresh herbs so we paired these steaks with a bright tomato salad made with our Elmira's grape tomatoes, fresh mint, honey, garlic, and red onion, served on a bed of Lundberg Farms lemon Jasmine rice. A perfect plant based dish that celebrates this truly unique vegetable!

    There is something so rustic and beautiful about this traditional French pastry!

A galette is essentially pastry dough folded around some sort of sweet or savoury filling. It is incredibly simple to make and extremely versatile with virtually endless options for flavour pairings, both sweet and savoury. This galette recipe is savoury, featuring a combination of our gourmet grape tomatoes, creamy buratta, garlic, fresh herbs and a balsamic reduction.

    Stuffed chicken breasts are a great way to switch up your regular chicken breast recipes, adding some extra flavor to your chicken. Stuffing the breast is also a great way to get a nice and moist breast as the stuffing helps retain moisture in chicken.

Served on a bed of creamy garlic and thyme mashed Goldenheart potatoes, this recipe is the perfect dinner for any night of the week!

    This week's recipe is made with our chef-made frozen fresh Bucatini pasta from Ascari Enoteca!

We paired this pasta with a rich tomato, chili, honey and balsamic based sauced that is packed with flavour. Sweet, salty, and slightly spicy, this sauce is perfectly balanced by the delicate and creamy flavour of our Bella Casara by Quality Cheese classic burrata. The result is absolutely divine.
