    (0) Zesti Spiced Eggplant Steaks With Tomato Salad & Lemon Rice
    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! So often with baking, we try to be precise and meticulous in the assembly of our pie shell, cake tiers etc. Galettes let you really lean into the rustic aesthetic and takes the pressure off trying to make your final product look "perfect". 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.

The fruit and caramel topping (or base!?) of this upside down cake is made with our fresh forced rhubarb and a delicious Rosewood honey caramel spiced with cardamom and hints of orange. A must try!
