What What isIs Fairway? Fairway? (continued...) (continued...) FAIRWAY PRIVATe LABeL CHEESE
If Fairway Market is on the label, you are in for a treat. Everything that comes out of the Fairway kitchens and into yours is either a Fairway original recipe or a treasured “secret” family recipe from a team member (most likely unbeknownst to their family!). We nurture close relationships with our producers, from the Italian families who make our incredible balsamic, to our olive growers in Mexico, Australia, France, Portugal and beyond who craft our world-renowned barrel oils, to the Lancaster family farmers who supply our organic milk and eggs. Look for Fairway on the label and taste the world.

cheese right to you. We promise you cheese heaven.
Fairway kosher is a kosher food lover’s paradise. We’ve long been one of the largest purveyors of food in the country that is not only kosher, but is absolutely delicious. Under the direction of “KOF-K” Kosher Supervision and Rabbi Avrohom Marmorstein, director of Mehadrin Kashrus (the kosher supervision service in Manhattan), Fairway offers thousands of kosher foods, from meat, poultry, cheese and bakery items, to coffees, teas and traditional packaged goods, as well as specialty products.
only superior beans. Our number one rule: our beans are treated with respect and care. This means we stay away from mainstream clearly put quantity over quality. This means we buy directly from small farms and estates where we have personal connections, because we know they care about the quality, flavor, and taste of and then test again before any bean makes it to our stores.
DELI Your Fairway Deli and Appetizing counter is unlike any you’ve come across in a very long while. We are a classic New York deli, and beyond: you will find our famous house-smoked salmon, the finest charcuterie from around the world, Chef Mitchel London’s beloved crab cakes, Provençal veggies, our own local roast turkey, mashed potatoes, tuna salad, pasta salad, herring, knishes, potato latkes, whole rotisserie chicken with our secret seasoning, homemade soups, chili, quiche...and the list goes on and on. “Appetizing” is an incredible food tradition local to New York. This is our craft at its best—the kind of food you long for.

All of our meat is cut and packaged in-house by a trained Fairway team member to ensure peak freshness, proper packaging, and the approval of someone who knows what a superior cut of meat looks like. All of the meat in every Fairway Market store is USDA inspected. Our kosher meat undergoes strict rabbinical supervision; in fact, we cut and package our kosher meat in-house and offer the same custom-cutting option for our kosher customers.

EGGPLANT PARMIGIANA WITH CHERRY TOMATOES
INGREDIENTS (Serves 2-3)
MUSHROOM, MAPLE, BRUSSELS SPROUTS & MANCHEGO QUESADILLAS with Fairway Salsa & Chimichurri Sauce
FOR THE EGGPLANT 1 large eggplant 2-3 glugs grape seed oil Salt and pepper FOR THE TOPPING ¼ cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano ½ cup Panko breadcrumbs Salt and pepper 2 tsps Fairway Extra Virgin Olive Oil Optional: pinch of red flake peppers FOR THE WARM TOMATO SALAD 1 cup combination of orange and red cherry tomatoes 6 small basil leaves 2 tbsps seasoned rice vinegar 2 tbsps Fairway Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2 small garlic cloves thinly sliced
INGREDIENTS (Serves 4)
2 jalapeño chilies Canola or vegetable oil 6 oz cremini mushrooms, sliced (1½ cups) 3-4 Fairway Sun-Dried Tomatoes (package or jar) ¼ tsp ground black pepper 4 (8-in.) whole-wheat tortillas 6 tbsps shredded manchego cheese Fairway Salsa (try mild heat) Fairway Chimichurri Sauce Cilantro sprigs for garnish, optional 1 lb Brussels sprouts, trimmed and thinly sliced 1-2 tbsps Fairway Maple Syrup (to taste, depending on desired sweetness)
PREHEAT broiler. Broil jalapeños on foil-lined baking sheet 15 minutes, or until blackened, turning once. Transfer to bowl, cover, and let stand for 15 minutes. Peel, remove seeds, and coarsely chop. HEAT about 1 tbsp oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add Brussels sprouts cut side down in a single layer in skillet and cook until deep golden brown, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and toss; cook until tender, about 4 minutes longer. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the maple syrup.
USING the same skillet, drizzle more oil and add mushrooms and chili pepper; sauté for about 3 minutes, or until browned. Transfer to a bowl. EITHER in same skillet or in broiler on a baking sheet, sprinkle 2 tortillas with 3 tbsps cheese. Top with Fairway Sun-Dried Tomatoes, jalapeños, mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, and remaining tortillas. Cook about 3 minutes per side. Serve with Fairway Salsa and/or Chimichurri Sauce. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
PREHEAT your oven to 450°F. SLICE your eggplant in half lengthwise. Using a paring knife, score your eggplant (make lines from top right to bottom left and then from top left to bottom right, creating a patchwork – don’t slice through!). USING a lined and Pam-sprayed baking sheet, drizzle grape seed oil (you can also use olive oil), covering both the front and back of the eggplant. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Lay the eggplants face down, skin side up on the baking sheet; place in the oven for 20 minutes until roasted. MEANWHILE, in a bowl combine breadcrumbs, grated cheese, pepper flakes, and grape seed or olive oil (I prefer olive oil here and grape seed oil on the eggplant). Mix with your hands until you have what feels like moist sand. Season with salt and pepper. HALVE your cherry and sun-gold

tomatoes (or quarter, if they’re bigger), chiffonade the basil (cut the basil into thin slices), and combine the tomatoes and basil in one bowl. Mix with seasoned rice vinegar, salt, and pepper. USING a small saucepan over the lowest heat possible, warm the extra virgin olive oil and thinly sliced garlic. The garlic will start to turn golden brown as the olive oil becomes infused.
FLIP over the eggplants so the scored side is up; place the breadcrumb mixture on top and bake for another 5 minutes until golden-brown. ONCE the eggplants come out of the oven, remove the warm garlic oil from the stove and add to the tomato salad. Drizzle the tomato mixture on top of the eggplant and serve. Optional: grate a little extra Parmigiano Reggiano and fresh basil on top!

INGREDIENTS (Serves 6-8)
4 medium artichokes Fairway Olive Oil or Fairway Grape Seed Oil 1 lemon, halved 3 garlic cloves Anchovy paste (try one solid squeeze, about ½ tbsp) ½ cup bread crumbs (try plain Panko) ½ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano Salt and pepper ½ cup Fairway Pitted Kalamata Olives, minced ½ tbsp capers, rinsed and minced
WORKING with 1 artichoke at a time, discard the dark green outer leaves. Cut off the top inch of the artichoke, then peel and trim the bottom and stem. Halve the artichoke lengthwise and scoop out the furry choke. Squeeze half a lemon on all the artichokes. PREHEAT the oven to 400°F. USING a saucepan of simmering water, cook the artichoke halves until barely tender, 7 minutes. Drain well and pat dry. LIGHTLY oil a ceramic baking dish. In a skillet, heat ½ cup of Fairway Olive Oil or Fairway Grape Seed Oil. Add garlic and cook over moderately high heat until golden, 4 minutes; discard the garlic. Add the anchovy paste and stir until dissolved. Add the artichokes cut side down and cook
until crusty on the bottom. Flip them and cook until lightly browned, 3 minutes; transfer the artichokes, cut side up, to the baking dish. Let the garlic-anchovy oil cool slightly. USING a bowl, mix the breadcrumbs and cheese. Stir in the garlicanchovy oil and season very lightly with salt and pepper. In another bowl, mix the Fairway Olives and capers with a pinch of pepper. Fill the artichoke halves with the olive mixture and top with the breadcrumbs. Bake for 12 minutes, until the topping is browned and crisp and the artichokes are tender. Let stand for 5 minutes; then serve. NOTE: The recipe can be prepared through Step 4 and refrigerated overnight; allow it to return to room temperature before baking. Refrigerate breadcrumbs separately. -f

An Italian favorite, Gaeta olives will entice you with their impossibly purple color made even more vivid with the strips of yellow lemon zest and the creamy beige of the smashed garlic cloves. Each nugget of flesh glinting from the sheen of Fairway Extra Virgin Olive Oil. TIPS: Serve Gaeta olives with a tuna salad and fresh, steamed vegetables, or even make your own Puttanesca sauce.
GREEN CRACKED SICILIAN OLIVES Cracked Sicilians in a soothing hue of army green with the creamy beige of the smashed garlic cloves and the vivid green and vermilion of the smashed fresh hot chiles, each sparkling from the Fairway Extra Virgin Olive Oil in which they are bathing. TIPS: These Sicilian treasures pair nicely with any table cheese, particularly Parmigiano Reggiano, or salami.
OIL-CURED BLACK PROVENCAL OLIVES Jet-black and faceted with wrinkles, each oil-cured Provencal olive, rendered crepuscular by the soothing bone-color of the smashed garlic cloves and the evergreen spikes of bruised fresh rosemary. The olive’s juicy flesh marries perfectly with the rosemary. TIPS: Provencal olives are great to flavor pasta or garnish chicken, fish or any other dish. If you choose not to pit them, don’t forget to tell your guests! -f

bsessed with olives? You bet we are. Beautiful, imported olives are part of Fairway’s culture. We can’t eat pizza without them, we expect them to be a part of every meal or as a side, and a martini without at least one is blasphemy! We love them on appetizer platters, in salads, or warm in everything from chicken to fish to pasta dishes. We even go so far as to dress them with the same authentic preparations in which they are dressed in 38 | FLAVORS MAGAZINE

Home For the Holidays
>> CLASSIC HOLIDAY RECIPES FROM FAIRWAY by Hannah Howard
othing makes a house a home like the rich smell of pork roasting in the oven, or a batch of chocolate chip cookies baking, wafting enticingly from the kitchen. In our go-go-go-go lives, it’s hard to find time to stop and smell the roses. Or, to stop and make a pumpkin pie. But the rewards are so much greater than the sum of the parts (eggs, brown sugar, pumpkin, fragrant cloves). The tactile experience—the mixing, spooning, slicing, dicing, flipping—can be deeply meditative, therapeutic. Cooking at home with great, fresh Fairway ingredients will save your hard-earned money—going out costs big bucks. And you can cook precisely what you crave and love. You
are no longer at the mercy of some chef, some trend. That’s just the start. Nothing brings people together the way cooking does. Start a big, bubbling pot on the stove and watch your family and friends congregate. Guests always end up in the kitchen, somehow. If your home is a body, your kitchen is its heart. Food is a universal language, a language of love, family, community, joy. Life. Humanity. So much promise from a dish of stuffing! Wishing you an abundance of great food and love this holiday season.

CORNBREAD SAUSAGE STUFFING WITH TOASTED PECANS
POTATO GRATIN WITH MUSHROOMS & GRUYERE (Recipe courtesy of Bon Appetit, November 2010)
Stuffing Worthy of Your Holiday Table
INGREDIENTS (Serves 8-10)
You’ll want to serve this savory stuffing year after year for the holidays. Great beside Fairway’s Farm-Fresh Turkey and Asparagus Parmigiano. Your guests will want seconds; plan accordingly.
INGREDIENTS (Serves 10)
1/4 cup olive oil 4 cups finely chopped leeks (white and pale green parts only; about 3 large) 1 1/2 pounds 1/2-inch cubes assorted mushrooms (such as chantarelle, cremini, porcini, morel and stemmed shiitake; about 10 cups) 2 garlic cloves, minced
3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices 2 cups heavy whipping cream 1 teaspoon (or more) salt 1/2 teaspoon (or more) freshly ground black pepper 1 cup coarsely grated Gruyere cheese
4 lbs cornbread, cut into small cubes 8 ribs celery, cleaned and chopped into small dice 4 medium Spanish onions, peeled and chopped into small dice 1 lb Fairway Hot Pork Sausage or Fairway Sweet Italian Sausage 2 lb cremini or button mushrooms, thinly sliced 4 sprigs thyme 4 cups pecans, toasted (recipe below) 2 tbsp Fairway Extra Virgin Olive Oil 4 tbsp butter for onions (substitute with olive oil, if desired) 8 tbsp melted butter for cornbread (substitute with olive oil, if desired) Fairway Sea Salt, to taste Fairway Tellicherry Pepper, to taste
DIRECTIONS CORNBREAD SAUSAGE STUFFING BRUSH the cornbread cubes generously with melted butter or olive oil and place them in the oven until they are nicely toasted. Let cool. CRUMBLE and brown the sausage in a large skillet, over medium-high heat. Remove the sausage from the skillet and set aside.
ADD the cornbread while the vegetables are still hot and gently fold together being careful not to break the corn bread up too much. Let it sit for a bit.
*If you add the cornbread while the vegetables are still hot the cornbread will absorb more of their flavors. TOASTED PECANS PREHEAT the oven to 350ºF.
SAUTÉ the onions in 4 tbsp of butter or olive oil for 5 minutes, do not brown them. Add the celery to the pan and continue to cook for 10 more minutes, but do not brown.
CHOP half of the pecans and keep the other half whole. PLACE the pecans on a cookie sheet in a single layer.
ADD 2 tbsp olive oil to a separate sauté pan and allow it to get smoking hot.
TOAST them in the oven for 5 minutes or until you start to smell them roasting. Be very careful not to burn them.
ADD the mushrooms and cook over high heat keeping the mushrooms jumping for 1 minute. The edges of the mushrooms should become slightly charred.
Chef’s Note: If you reheat the stuffing in the oven loosely cover it with aluminum foil. If you have done this correctly you should be able to taste everything in the stuffing.
PLACE all of the cooked vegetables and the toasted pecans into a large bowl along with the two sprigs of thyme.
44 | FLAVORS MAGAZINE
DIRECTIONS HEAT 1/4 cup oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add leeks; sauté until soft and lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Add mushrooms, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and sauté until soft and liquid evaporates, 7 to 8 minutes. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Do Ahead: can be made 4 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature. PREHEAT oven to 375°F. PAT potato slices dry with kitchen towel. COMBINE cream, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in large pot. Add potatoes. Bring to boil; reduce heat to medium and simmer, covered, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
REMOVE lid; simmer until cream is reduced by about half and potatoes are partially cooked, stirring often and watching closely to prevent mixture from burning, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. BRUSH 13 x 9 x 2-inch glass or ceramic baking dish with oil. TRANSFER half of potato mixture to dish, spreading out in even layer. Spoon mushroom mixture over in even layer. Spoon remaining potato mixture over, spreading in even layer. SPRINKLE cheese over. Cover with foil, tenting in center to prevent cheese from sticking to foil. BAKE 30 minutes. Uncover; bake until potatoes are tender and top is brown, 20 to 25 minutes longer. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.

PORK LOIN WITH FIG & APRICOT SAUCE
ORANGE CRANBERRY SAUCE
Home For the Holidays (continued...)
Nothing Could Be Simpler A Treat for the Holiday Pork loin soars to new heights of deliciousness stuffed with nature’s candy: sweet figs and apricots. The tender, juicy, pork gets roasted to perfection; the sweet compote becomes bubbly, sticky-sweet, and perfect. Asparagus Parmigiano makes a nice light and slightly salty side.
All cranberries need is a sprinkling of sugar, a grating of fragrant orange zest, and a squeeze of orange juice to transform into a perfect cranberry sauce. You’ll never need to resort to canned sauce again!
INGREDIENTS (Makes 3 1/2 cups)
12 oz fresh cranberries 1 1/2 cups sugar 4 wide strips orange zest, plus 1 cup fresh orange juice Coarse salt and ground pepper
DIRECTIONS COMBINE cranberries, sugar, orange zest, and 1/2 cup water in a medium saucepan. Season with salt and pepper. BRING to a boil over medium-high heat. REDUCE to a simmer and cook until sauce thickens, 20 to 25 minutes. REMOVE from heat and stir in orange juice.
INGREDIENTS (Serves 10)
1 1 1 1
boneless pork loin (2-2 1/2 lbs), butterflied 1/2 cups dried black Mission figs, halved 1/2 cups dried pitted prunes, halved 1/2 cups Fairway Dried Apricots
1/4 cup Fairway Red Wine Vinegar 2 tablespoons Fairway Golden Honey 10 leaves rosemary, chopped 1-2 tablespoons Fairway Extra Virgin Olive Oil
DIRECTIONS PREHEAT an oven to 400ºF. FILL a pot with 2 cups of water and place on stove over a medium heat. ADD dried fruit and heat for 20 minutes, mixing every few minutes. When the fruits have started to meld together and turn into a compote, add the red wine vinegar and honey. Mix well. Remove the compote from the pot and place in a bowl.

46 | FLAVORS MAGAZINE
SEASON the inside of the pork loin with salt and pepper and generously stuff the loin with the compote, reserving the extra. Close and tie with kitchen twine.

HOMEMADE PUMPKIN PIE WITH BOURBON WHIPPED CREAM
INGREDIENTS (Serves 8)
4 large Fairway eggs, lightly beaten 1 cup milk 1 unbaked 9-inch, deep-dish pie shell
PUMPKIN PIE FILLING (or use 2 cups premade pumpkin pie filling) 1-2 small pie pumpkins 1/2 cup dark brown sugar 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp Fairway Kosher Salt 1 1/4 tsp Fairway Ground Cinnamon 1 tsp ground ginger 1 tsp Fairway Pure Vanilla Extract 1/2 tsp Fairway Ground Nutmeg 1/2 tsp ground cloves
BOURBON WHIPPED CREAM: 2 cups heavy cream 1 cup powdered sugar 2 tbsp good quality Bourbon
DIRECTIONS DE-STEM 1-2 small pumpkins, quarter, remove seeds and de-string them. HEAT the oven to 400°F. PLACE the pumpkin quarters on a baking dish and bake with the meat facing up. Bake for 1 hour or until very soft inside. REMOVE from the oven and let cool. Once cool, scrape the pumpkin meat leaving the empty shell behind. Put the pumpkin meat in a food processor or mash with a fork until pureed and smooth. Combine, in order, the pumpkin, brown and granulated sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, nutmeg, and cloves. BEAT 3 eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add the pumpkin and mix. Add the milk and mix well.
BRUSH your raw pie shell with an egg wash (1 egg, lightly beaten with a splash of milk or water) before adding filling to prevent the crust from getting soggy. PLACE the mixture in the ready-made pie shell. BAKE at 350°F for 55 minutes, or until the center is set (if you poke the center with a toothpick, it should come out clean). REMOVE pie from oven, place on rack to cool. Add dollop of whipped cream on each slice or place in a side dish and serve. FOR THE WHIPPED CREAM PUT all the whipped cream ingredients in a stand mixer and beat on high until soft peaks form, about 3 minutes. -f
A Homemade Holiday Favorite The smooth, rich flavor of homemade pumpkin pie, the sweet taste of whipped cream with a twang of bourbon—this is what the holidays are all about! Fresh pumpkin purée is easier to make than you may think. 48 | FLAVORS MAGAZINE

COOKING TIPS & ADVICE
>> 36 TRUTHS ABOUT OLIVE OIL By Dr. Gino Celletti with an introduction by Steve Jenkins
e talk about wine and we talk about food, and about both we go into great detail.
on a weekly basis. There is no food nutritional subject that even approaches the cruciality of learning about olive oil.
But not with olive oil. It would seem we want to remain ignorant about olive oil. Here at Fairway, we are learning more about olive oil every week, and after 40 years of thinking about food, we finally realize we have ignored the single-most important food in our lives. Even the most famous chefs are almost totally ignorant about olive oil.
Let’s start with the ‘TRUTHS’ about olive oil, as written by the legendary, industry-leading, guiding light, Milano-resident Dr. Gino Celletti, author of the brilliant Monocultivar Olive Oil: The Perfect Olive Oil. Dr. Celletti was recently the Chief Judge of the New York International Olive Oil Competition, the world’s largest olive oil event. His book, Monocultivar Olive Oil: The Perfect Olive Oil, contains these ‘truths’. — Steve Jenkins
Rest assured your Fairway olive oil-lovers are trying to teach you all they have learned, all they continue to learn
36 TRUTHS ABOUT OLIVE OIL from Monocultivar Olive Oil: The Perfect Olive Oil by Dr. Gino Celletti TRUTH #1
There isn’t any olive oil inside an olive. It isn’t like making orange juice; if only it was as simple as the ads make it sound.
If an olive is “virgin”, it has already had sex. We all are born virgins, but olive oil, if it’s born as a “virgin” by law, it may have already had sex for 35% of its life. The EU Regulation EC 640/2008, on a scale of 0 to 10, allows for up to 3.5 defects.
TRUTH #2 Green olives and black olives do not exist. Unlike grapes, all olives are green at the beginning, and as they ripen they all become black.
TRUTH #3 And if olives are allowed to turn black, they get angry. And if they could talk, they’d be swearing.
TRUTH #5 The first press doesn’t exist, and neither does the 2nd nor the 3rd. There can only be one press, and re-grinding the pomace is illegal. Have you ever seen “wine from the first press”? No! And it is the same for olive oil. So why do they continue to say ‘first-press olive oil’? FAIRWAYMARKET.COM | 53
The O ily Truth (continued...) TRUTH #6
“Cold-press” doesn’t exist. The pressing room is “warm”. SO warm, in fact, that if we were at the seaside, we could go for a swim, and if it were any less warm we couldn’t extract even a single drop of olive oil.
Why do you put salt and pepper on olive oil, yet not in wine? Perhaps because the olive oil you are using has no taste? With an early-harvest monocultivar olive oil, salt and pepper are not necessary.
“Extra-virgin” is not the 1st press. “Olive oil” is not the 2nd press. “Pomace and olive oil” is not the 3rd press.
Olive oil makes you gain weight just like pasta, bread, sweets, beer, wine, sodas, cocktails and French fries, but unlike the others, it keeps you young. And so you might not want a croissant and cappuccino anymore; instead for breakfast a bruschetta with olive oil, tomato and basil.
TRUTH #8 Genuineness isn’t quality. Too many shysters sell genuine, but not quality olive oil. The consumer is confused by the two concepts, and is deceived.
Adulteration is not sophistication. This technical data is not just for a government’s bureaucrat chemists; it is for all of us. It is better to know what they are saying or telling us.
Better olive oil’s visible fat than a hidden killer that tastes like butter, but isn’t. Invisible fats are often hydrogenated. Margarine and “trans-fatty acids” increase the risk of stroke. Olive oil contains no cholesterol, and works to help reduce it.
Always taste before using. Why do we always taste wine, but never olive oil?
An olive oil that solidifies at low temperature? Is it a rip-off, ruined, or changed? NO!
TRUTH #11 If you sense aromas with your nose why is it called aftertaste? If you sense it with your nose it is smell, and therefore better to say aftersmell.
TRUTH #12 The flavors coffee, strawberry, mint? They do not exist. What you are sensing in your mouth are really the aromas of coffee, strawberry and mint through your nose. They are not from “taste”, but “smell”. Never say “mint-taste” again.
TRUTH #13 Extra-virgin olive oil must have a scent. If it doesn’t, it must not be chosen. Learn how to sample olive oil; protect your family. Frauds are ever-present.
TRUTH #14 “Good” olive oil must be spicy; the more the better. Antioxidants are spicy. Consumers in the north of Europe tend not to like them, but they are the reason olive oil is healthy.
TRUTH #15 “Good” olive oil must be spicy. If it isn’t, it’s a fraud. It means that it hasn’t come from olives, or it’s been washed. It’s either a scam or just cheap.
TRUTH #16 If you smell a defect, it isn’t extra-virgin. When tested, extravirgin olive oil by law cannot have any defects. Despite that, defective oils are sold everywhere (particularly in American supermarkets and specialty food stores).
54 | FLAVORS MAGAZINE
A L L N A T U R A L S A U C E S & PA S TA S
From my family table
If your olive oil is bitter, thank the person who gave it to you. Bitterness is not a defect, but rather a positive characteristic. Olive oil can be sweet or bitter just as wine can be red or white.
TRUTH #18 A green color in olive oil is not a sign of quality. Instead, it could be a scam. Olive oil-tasters test olive oil in blue or brown glasses so as not to be influenced by the color.
CAVIAR at FAIRWAY
TRUTH #19 Olive oil should not be odorless, colorless or tasteless. If it is, we are denying the consumer his expectations of health.
TRUTH #20 You cannot assess an olive oil’s acidity with your mouth. If someone is claiming to do so, they are either a scam artist or…bionic.

Wine & Cheese (continued...) TRUTH #25
And my cousin’s olive oil? The most likely rip-off of all. The farmer’s olive oil, the one you picked up during your vacation, and my cousin’s olive oil, all have the same common denominator: RIP-OFF. “Genuineness” is different from quality. It is this “sweet”, never spicy olive oil, which has traveled to the refinery that has mis-educated the consumer. Family means trust, but it certainly does not guarantee quality. If your cousin, in good faith, uses the same olive oil at home, even he is being fooled.
MONOCULTIVAR OLIVE OIL—the perfect olive oil; it is harvested at the first color change. A SINGLE VARIETY, in a controlled chain, crushed in a modified atmosphere, zero defects.
TRUTH #26 Oil for your car at 20 euro per liter and olive oil for your mind and body at 2 euro per liter? The oil for your car costs ten times more than the olive oil for your mind and body. If you don’t respect yourself, no one else will.
MONOCULTIVAR OLIVE OIL is REAL anti-fraud! DNA research of a single cultivar from the bottle has been successfully tested. Now you can pinpoint the botanical origin of a monocultivar olive oil. There are many who won’t like this.
All olive trees are not the same. There are 1584 varieties of olive trees, or “cultivars”, in the world. In Italy alone, there are 638, almost 40%! But nobody cares about this immense fortune.
TRUTH #30 What’s your yield—in crap? As long as there are producers who think in terms of “yield”, refined olive oil is OK. At least you are saving money. Remember: The earlier the harvest, the better-tasting and healthier the olive oil AND the lower the yield. The later the harvest, the LESS good-tasting the olive oil, the LESS-healthy the olive oil, yet the higher the yield. Are you beginning to get it?

Crafting Authentic Italian since 1959
Why spend 1,000,000 euro to buy a modern olive mill if you can just “squeeze” the olives by hand? Some media messages do nothing to educate consumers about the pricing of quality olive oil. To produce “very good” olive oil, you need to spend a lot of money.
TRUTH #32 Stoned olive oil is like boneless fish and boneless ham.
TRUTH #33 It’s on the label, but it’s in tiny print. We cannot prevent being overrun by bad foreign oil. We cannot prevent these blends being made in Italy and sold abroad with an Italian brand, as if we were agents for foreign countries. We are immensely proud of our house blends, and because we know olive oil, they are as good as we can possibly make them. We do this to offer very good, very low-priced olive oil. But if we were really true to our school we would never allow blended olive oil in our stores.
Large Round Ravioli Mini Round Ravioli Tri-Color Cheese Tortellini Cheese Tortellini Stuffed Cheese Rigatoni
Every loophole has a law. No, it’s not a typo; in this case the reversed aphorism is correct. For far too long, defective olive oils have been put on the market with undefined regulations. So terrible oils, obtained from terrible olives, grown in terrible conditions have been stopped at our borders by a sacred European Community law that accepts defective EVOO and yet also defines the values? Insane.

TRUTH #35 Polyphenols are finally legally on the label. After requesting it for 20 years they (the EC bureaucrats) finally gave in, but it could have been done better. Polyphenols are the wonderfully bitter anti-oxidants that are the hallmark of early harvest, monocultivar olive oils. Polyphenols are the reason for olive oil to exist—for flavor, in order to translate other foods’ flavors, in order to allow us to live longer disease-free lives.
TRUTH #36 Rancid (oxidized) olive oils are bad for you, and consumers can easily understand that if it is explained to them. -f 56 | FLAVORS MAGAZINE

>> HOLIDAY FAVORITES WITHOUT THE GLUTEN by By Diana Stobo, author of Get Naked Fast. Learn more at DianaStobo.com
s long as I can remember, people have come to me with food questions: How did you make that dessert? What did you dress the salad with? What should I buy when I go grocery shopping? What should I make for dinner? I’ve always enjoyed the questions and the teaching process. I found the inspiration for my own interests, motivation for more knowledge, and the drive to experience new avenues for the art of food through others. Over the years I have been urged, enticed, encouraged, and supported to create something tangible for others to read and refer to when they need some hand-holding in the kitchen.
As time passed, my health became my primary focus. I concentrated less on “yummy” food and more on nutritional food. A natural transition occurred with the information I had to offer and I was no longer the quintessential “foodie.” I became the nutritionist, the healer, and the go-to person when someone needed to make a dietary change in their life. You will love these recipes from my kitchen to yours using Fairway’s deliciously fresh produce and wide selection of natural and organic products. Happy Healthy Holidays!

“NAKED” MACARONI & CHEESE
I’m a lover of rich sauces, so a good, old-fashioned macaroni and cheese is at the top of my list as a decadent and delicious treat. The butternut squash adds a bit of sweetness as well as creaminess; the macadamia nut butter and coconut milk provide richness; the ghee gives that buttery taste; and the rest is magic.
PUMPKIN SAGE SOUP WITH PEPITAS
Pumpkin is warm and cozy and a seasonal fall favorite that has so much versatility. Nothing warms the spirit better than a harvest pumpkin soup. This one adds the depth of sage and the crunch of pepitas (an added magnesium boost).
2 cups onion, diced 4 cups “pie pumpkin” (e.g., sugar pumpkin), diced 10 fresh sage leaves 1 tbsp ghee 1 quart vegetable broth
1 1/2 tsp sea salt 2 tbsp raw cashew butter Raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds) for garnish and crunch
DIRECTIONS SAUTÉ onion and pumpkin in ghee until pumpkin sweats but does not brown. Add broth, sage, and salt and simmer for 20 minutes or until pumpkin is soft. Turn off heat and cool slightly. POUR into a high-speed blender and add cashew butter. Place top on blender but remove the insert to release the heat and blend on low speed until mixed together. Turn on high for 15 seconds. POUR soup back into the pan to heat or pour directly into bowls. Garnish with pepitas.

DIRECTIONS PREPARE pasta according to package directions. (Brown rice pasta takes longer than semolina pasta, so plan accordingly.) Cook al dente (test by chewing), strain, and run under cold water immediately to stop the cooking process. Pour cooled pasta back into pot. MELT ghee and gently sweat the squash in a medium sauce pan, do not brown. Add sea salt and coconut milk and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
POUR hot squash into blender and add macadamia butter, nutritional yeast, and lemon juice. Blend on low with the center cap on lid removed to release the heat while blending. Slowly increase speed until mixture is smooth and creamy. POUR mixture over pasta and stir. This may be served immediately with crunchy topping sprinkled on top or baked in a baking dish at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until browned.

NO BAKE PUMPKIN PIE

HEALTHY LIVING EAT THE RIGHT THINGS FIRST The holidays are filled with sweets. Sweets, by definition, are carbohydrates. They include everything from Halloween candy to Thanksgiving stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie. It’s undeniable that these delectable items are truly the staples of indulgent joy this time of year—and shouldn’t be missed. The key, however, is portion control. You know you’re going to have some, but the question is how much? Of course the best answer is as little as possible, and there’s a way to get there without ripping away the enjoyment.
Healthy Habits For the Holidays
>> SEASONAL HEALTHY FOOD by Carlon M. Colker, M.D., FACN Health and Nutrition Advisor, Fairway Market
he fall and winter months are here and with them, back are our dietary sins. It starts subtly with sneaking Halloween candy, then progresses to the bountiful Thanksgiving spread. It gets worse at Christmas and Hanukkah as the food festivities continue, and concludes on New Year’s
84 | FLAVORS MAGAZINE
Eve with our belt-lines about to burst. But there are some healthy eating habits you can maintain throughout these festive times that will help you avoid dietary devastations while still allowing you to enjoy the holiday celebrations.
EXPERT TIP: The approach involves eating the functional foods first. These foods include proteinbased foods like chicken, beef, lamb, fish, and other animal products. Other functional foods that fill you up are fiber-based and include vegetables. Among these are salads, mixed greens, asparagus, spinach, cauliflower, etc. Eating a good-size portion of these types of foods before you reach for the carbohydratebased foods will instantly mitigate the damage they cause because you will be more full going in. That way you’ll serve yourself less of the worst kinds of foods and thus eat those in smaller amounts. In fact, you’ll feel like you don’t even miss them. Anecdotally, as a first step with my overweight patients, I often ask them to not restrict any foods, but rather make a requirement that they eat a full salad before ordering or eating whatever they choose as their meal. It’s amazing how that takes the edge off. More often than not, they end up ordering something completely different and healthier than what they otherwise would have had they not eaten the salad first.
DOC’S WATER TRICK In keeping with eating the right things first, properly timed water intake can also help mitigate damage. That’s because, by occupying space in the stomach, it does help reduce hunger pangs. In fact, I use this type of approach regularly with my patients. EXPERT TIP: Select among the amazing variety of Fairway Market bottles of water. Drink 16 ounces before a meal and observe how it curbs your hunger just a bit. Though you won’t see as big a result as eating the right things first, you can still get some good benefit from this method resulting in less food intake. FAIRWAYMARKET.COM | 85
Healthy Habits (continued...) STOKE THE METABOLIC FURNACE
Now, Solgar unlocks the power of curcumin like never before.
More active. 185 times better bioavailability. Faster absorbed.
EXPERT TIP: Something as simple as having a good breakfast and a good lunch may be all it takes to mitigate the diet damage. If all that eating doesn’t appeal to you, your Fairway Market has a vast variety of protein bars and nutritional meal replacement shakes that will do the job. That way, you can still enjoy the food and festivities without your mind, metabolism, and mouth going out of control. -f
©2015 Solgar, Inc.
Most holiday eating involves a significant caloric intake in the evening. As a result, we tend to avoid food throughout the day in preparation for the large impending intake. As commonsense as this may seem, it’s actually a big mistake. That’s because we end up absolutely famished by the time the meal comes. As a result, we can’t help but over-eat. Unfortunately, the metabolism slows down in response to the period of starvation. That, combined with the fact that we are far less active at night, results in a massive gain in body fat. In order to avoid this, one needs to actually eat earlier in the day leading up to the big meal. This will help stoke a healthy metabolism and reduce the perceived desire for excess food intake. In other words, you won’t want to eat as much food and your body will be less likely to store what you ate as body fat.
That’s the difference with New Solgar ® Full Spectrum Curcumin. For the first time, Solgar transforms poorly absorbed curcumin from a fat-soluble to a water-soluble phytonutrient… making it immediately body-ready, faster absorbed, more active, and more bioavailable than ever before. ◊ Solgar ® Full Spectrum Curcumin is so advanced, just 40 mg of curcumin in one softgel delivers the equivalency of nearly 75 (100 mg) capsules of standardized curcumin extract. Even more, in a recent clinical study, Solgar ® Full Spectrum Curcumin was shown to be longer lasting so it stays in your system for a full 24 hours. ◊ Now, for brain, joint, and immune health – Solgar changes what you believed was possible from curcumin… forever. Solgar ® Full Spectrum Curcumin… one softgel, once a day–185X better. ◊* The complete line of Solgar nutritional supplements is available at fine health food retailers worldwide.

Fairway birds are simply wonderful: fresh, never frozen, highest quality. They are fed a vegetarian diet of American grains (corn and soybeans), and a healthy blend of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and oils.

Without getting too technical, the bird becomes extra plump, moist, and flavorful. If you’re looking for zero work, an oven-ready turkey from our catering department will do the trick—they’re cleaned, seasoned, and ready to go.

FOR THE FILLING: 1/4 cup (1 oz) finely chopped Fairway Walnuts 1 tbsp sugar 1 tbsp light brown sugar 1/2 tsp cocoa powder 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
MELT the chocolate in a double boiler over low heat. You can also use a pot over very low heat or the microwave provided you pay close attention and mix it frequently during the melting process.
ADD the coconut and continue to mix until well blended. Keeping your hands wet, form the mixture into small mounds or hay stacks onto a baking sheet pinching them together slightly so that the macaroon holds.

LET cool at room temperature and enjoy!
BEAT the butter and cream cheese in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, on medium-high speed until evenly combined, about 2 minutes. Add the superfine sugar, vanilla and salt, and reduce the speed to low. Add 1-1/4 cups of the flour and mix just until incorporated, then repeat with the remaining 1 cup of flour. Do not over mix. ROLL the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Flour your hands well and gently knead to be sure that the ingredients are evenly distributed, about 10 seconds. Divide the dough into thirds, and shape each portion into a 1-inch thick disk and wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until chilled and firm, about 2 hours. TO MAKE THE FILLING COMBINE the walnuts, superfine sugar, brown sugar, cocoa and cinnamon in a small bowl; set aside. POSITION racks in the center and top third of the oven and preheat to 350ºF.

FLOURLESS GLAZED CHOCOLATE CAKE (Recipe courtesy of GlutenFreeCooking.com)
Rich and incredibly chocolate-y, but gluten-free. Want to skip the mess? You can also buy flourless chocolate cakes pre-made at Fairway’s Bakery!
Flourless Glazed Chocolate Cake DIRECTIONS PREHEAT oven to 350°F
INGREDIENTS (Serves 6)
6 1-oz squares coarsely chopped semisweet chocolate 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter 3/4 cup sugar 3 large eggs 1/2 cup cocoa 1/4 tsp salt 1 tsp vanilla
FOR GLAZE: 2 1-oz squares coarsely chopped semisweet chocolate squares 1 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter 1 1/2 tsp milk or light coconut milk 1 1/2 tsp Agave syrup or honey 1/8 tsp vanilla
SPRAY a 7-inch tart pan with removable bottom with cooking spray. If you don’t have a tart pan, use a 6 to 7-inch springform pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper and spray the paper. MELT 6 oz of chopped chocolate and butter in a heavy saucepan over medium low heat. Stir until chocolate and butter are melted and smooth. ADD sugar and salt and reduce heat to low. Cook while stirring for about one minute, until sugar starts to dissolve. REMOVE pan from heat. Whisk in eggs, one at a time. The mixture will look smooth and glossy. USE a mesh hand sieve to sift cocoa into mixture. This prevents lumps. Whisk until the cake batter is smooth.
POUR batter into prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for about 25 minutes. The center of the cake should be just firm to the touch, but be careful to not overbake the cake or it will be dry. COOL in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Invert the cake on a plate. TO PREPARE THE GLAZE MELT 2 oz of chopped chocolate and 1 1/2 tbsp of unsalted butter in the same saucepan you used to make the cake. When melted and smooth, remove the pan from heat. Add milk and Agave syrup OR honey and vanilla and stir until smooth and glossy. Let the glaze cool for about 3 minutes before pouring it on the cake. POUR all of the glaze in the middle of the cake. Use a silicone or rubber spatula to spread the glaze evenly over the cake, allowing the glaze to evenly run down the sides of the cake. -f

Parmigiano Reggiano PDO cheese is a mature, nutritious cheese with a rich, fruity flavor and a flaky and slightly grainy texture. Essential for many Italian dishes, it is still hand-made without any additives, just as it was nine centuries ago. Parmigiano Reggianoâ€™s origins date back to the 12th century and since that time, artisan makers have stayed faithful to the identity and unique natural production of this iconic cheese. Today, there are 380 small artisan dairies in Italy which craft Parmigiano Reggiano cheese with the same dedication as always. The PDO mark ensures that the name Parmigiano Reggiano can be applied only to the cheese produced in the area of origin (provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Mantua on the right bank of the river Po and Bologna on the left side of the river Reno). It also means that it must be produced using specific artisan methods, by following a particular set of rules. It is the area, the natural feed, the high quality raw milk with no additives and its long aging process that makes Parmigiano Reggiano cheese unique. The minimum maturation time for Parmigiano Reggiano is 12 months, but when the cheese reaches approximately 24 months of age, it is at its best. Then itâ€™s ready to serve on a cheese board, grate over pasta, and use in delicious recipes.

Fairway Dinners in 30
>> MEALS TO GET YOU FROM THE KITCHEN TO THE TABLE FAST by Hannah Howard
here are days that unfold in the kitchen. Luxurious, magical days. Maybe a holiday is around the corner, and cookbooks are scattered around the house, and your favorite music is blasting. A stock is bubbling, meats are marinating, and warm smells are emanating from the oven. Then, there are the other days. You run the race of life: work, responsibility, family, friends. And then—BAM—it’s dinnertime. Every home cook should have a few quickie, go-to options...ways to end a cold day with a great warm meal. I like pasta with whatever I have in the fridge—leftover beans, or veggies, or seared steak…anything at all. If I have nothing, well then it’s a bowl of spaghetti with plenty of garlic, dried chili, and a blanket of Parmesan and I’m a happy, well-fed girl. If you have the chance to swing by Fairway and only a few precious minutes to spend in the kitchen, you’re in luck. Choose from seven different types of hand-crafted (not
machine made) burgers. Carnivorous bliss. They are all made from the finest and freshest ingredients daily. Throw in a pan and dinner is served. Or caramelize some onions in a big pan with Fairway EVOO, add sweet bell peppers, and our pork, chicken, or turkey sausage—made by hand all day, every day. Your family will love you more than they do already. Or grab a Fairway rotisserie chicken (perfection!). Our fresh, handmade Fairway ravioli is a great choice for vegetarians. Fairway soups offer quick comfort. World famous roast beef from the deli, cut how you like it, on a Fairway baguette with melty provolone. Or your favorite fancy cheese from our cheese department, baked into a light but satisfying frittata. There’s always our beloved hot bar. So many options, such little time. These lightning-quick dishes are deceptively simple and completely painless. They make for simple, spot-on meals, the perfect conclusion to a busy day. Next order of business: relax and enjoy!

WINE PAIRING Fruity, but dry, medium-bodied white wine (like a Vermentino di Sardegna)
Meet John. He’s one of the secret ingredients to our all-natural bird. That’s because John raises his turkeys with compassion; nurturing them on a pure vegetarian diet, with plenty of fresh air and well water, and without the use of antibiotics. (Just like the good-olddays of 1835 when Plainville Farms started.) But just because we’re rooted in old-fashioned values doesn’t mean we don’t know a thing or two about satisfying current taste and health needs. Take our ground turkey for example. It’s perfect for serving healthy, homemade meals in a snap. Use it instead of beef in your burgers, meat loaf, or lettuce wraps for delicious flavor with today’s health sensibilities. Your secret is safe with us.

BACON SWIZZLE STICKS
Most swizzle sticks do one thing well: They swizzle. One evening, we invited our friend Richard Bonomo over to enjoy a cocktail and taste a few of our newly tested bacon recipes. Richard, a chemist and avid cook, helped us find a way to make a bacon swizzle stick hold its spiral shape
by wrapping it in a paper towel before popping it in the microwave. Sometimes it really helps to have a scientist in the kitchen. The swizzle sticks are great with Bloody Marys, martinis, and planter’s punch. Keep experimenting; it’s fun.
INGREDIENTS (Makes 1 swizzle stick, can be multiplied as desired) Slice of uncooked bacon
DIRECTIONS ARRANGE a slice of bacon diagonally on top of a piece of paper towel. HOLDING the slice of bacon at each end, twist the slice in opposite directions into a tight spiral.
Bacon Lovers, Rejoice! >> GOURMET BACON HORS D’OEUVRES FOR HOLIDAY GUESTS
by Marie Rama, co-author of the book Bacon Nation, our favorite book for bacon recipes and serving ideas!
e might be too busy to cook every night of the week, but when the holidays come, we start looking for those perfect recipes we can make ourselves as we open our hearts and homes to our family and friends. Bacon Nation has 125 through the menu recipes that explore the versatility of bacon as an intense seasoning ingredient and many are particularly suited for the holidays. For something very simple and different that will instantly get

FOLD the paper towel in half over the twisted bacon slice so that the towel’s opposite corners meet. Then, starting at the fold, roll the paper towel under the palms of your hands around the bacon into a tube. MICROWAVE the bacon in its rolled paper towel on high power until it is firm and shaped like a swizzle stick, about 1 minute and 15 seconds. Because microwave ovens vary in power, check for doneness after about 1 minute. UNROLL the paper towel and let the swizzle stick cool before using it as a garnish for your favorite Bloody or Virgin Mary.
your guests talking, lay out a stack of our Bacon Swizzle Sticks. Guests can grab and nibble on them as the party gets going and you pour the drinks. For a more substantial appetizer, I recommend the Crispy Polenta Bites with Sun-Dried Tomato Spread. Bacon and a burst of chipotle pepper enliven the corn meal base, while a sun-dried tomato spread perfectly adorns each triangle.
FAIRWAYMARKET.COM | 121
CRISPY POLENTA BITES WITH SUN-DRIED TOMATO SPREAD
INGREDIENTS (Makes 48 triangles) CRISPY POLENTA Olive oil or vegetable oil cooking spray 4 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/4- to 1/2-inch pieces 2 scallions, both white and green parts, finely chopped 3 large cloves garlic, minced Salt 1 cup quick-cooking polenta 1/4 chipotle pepper, packed in adobo sauce, seeded and chopped Freshly ground black pepper
SUN-DRIED TOMATO SPREAD 4 ounces (about 2/3 cup) oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained 2 to 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil 1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
COOK the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until it starts to brown and the fat begins to render, 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
The polenta can be prepared up to this point and refrigerated overnight before cutting it into triangles and baking it the next day. ABOUT 30 MINUTES BEFORE SERVING POSITION racks in the center and lower third of the oven and preheat the oven to 450˚F. Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil and coat each lightly with olive oil or vegetable oil cooking spray. SLICE firm polenta into 24 rectangles, then slice the rectangles into 48 triangles using the tip of a paring knife.

a crown jewel of a dish in both taste and appearance. Because pork, now bred to be lean, can be a little dry, we take time to brine and thereby moisten the boneless roast first in a mixture of honey, salt and seasonings. Then it’s stuffed with a combination of Mission figs, shallots, parsley, a tad of Cognac, and of course plenty of bacon. Finally, it gets a final gentle rubbing of e.v.o.o.
mixed with fresh rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper. I have made and served this dish on many different special occasions and it never fails to elicit appreciative “ahs”. Either our Apple and Bacon Brussels Sprout Hash or the Bacon Mushrooms Stew would make a fine side dish.
PORK ROAST STUFFED WITH BACON AND BLACK MISSION FIGS accent. The truly memorable flavor that makes this recipe a standout is the stuffing of bacon and figs: fruity, supremely soft, salty, smoky. We made this for the twentyninth birthday of one of our kids and won the highest accolade from a crowd of hip, food-savvy New Yorkers: “Can I have seconds?”
INGREDIENTS (Serves 8-10)
ADD the scallions and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the bacon is lightly browned, the fat is rendered, and the scallions soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Set the scallion mixture aside.
POUR the polenta into the prepared baking dish and refrigerate it, uncovered, until firm, about 1 hour.
or several holiday dinner dish suggestions, leaf through Bacon Nation’s Meat Chapter where you’ll find recipes for a Francis Fillet wrapped in bacon and sage, a Brawny Bacon Beef Bourguignon, and an Osso Buco with Orange and Lemon Gremolata. My personal favorite holiday meal is the Pork Roast Stuffed with Bacon and Black Mission Figs. It’s
Roast pork can be succulent and delicious but too often it can turn out dry. Brining it is a pretty failsafe method to produce juicy, flavorful pork and it knocks the ball out of the park in this recipe, which has proved to be one of the biggest crowd pleasers in this collection. Honey contributes beautiful floral notes in addition to sweetness. The simple rosemary-garlic rub adds a herbaceous
LINE the bottom of a 13- by 9-inch baking dish (Pyrex is fine) with parchment paper and coat the paper lightly with olive oil or vegetable oil cooking spray. Set the baking dish aside.
PLACE 4 cups of water in a heavy-bottomed 4-quart saucepan, cover the pan, and bring to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon of salt, reduce the heat to low, then add the polenta to the water in a very slow and steady stream while stirring with a wire whisk. Cook the polenta until it is soft and smooth, 4 to 5 minutes, whisking it often to eliminate any lumps. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the scallion and bacon mixture and the chipotle pepper. Taste for seasoning, adding more salt as necessary and black pepper to taste.
FOR THE SPREAD PLACE the sun-dried tomatoes in a mini food processor or in a blender. Add 2 table- spoons of the olive oil and the balsamic vinegar and basil. Process until fairly smooth but still a little coarsely chopped. If the mixture is dry, add some or all of the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Spoon the sun-dried tomato mixture into a small bowl and add the red onion.
FOR THE PORK ROAST AND BRINE 6 tablespoons honey 2/3 cup Diamond Crystal kosher salt 6 bay leaves 8 medium-size cloves garlic, peeled and lightly crushed with the flat side of a chef’s knife 1 1/2 teaspoons fennel seeds (optional) 1 tablespoon black peppercorns 1 center-cut boneless pork loin roast (about 3 1/2 pounds) FOR THE BACON AND FIG STUFFING (see Note) 6 slices bacon, diced 1 medium-size onion, diced (about 1 cup) 1 large shallot, diced 8 ounces dried black Mission figs, stems removed and discarded, cut into ¼- to ½-inch pieces 3 tablespoons granulated sugar 1 packed tablespoon dark brown sugar 6 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1 bay leaf Freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 2/3 cup coarse-ground bread crumbs 1/3 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 1 tablespoon Armagnac or Cognac (optional)
COVER the tomato spread and refrigerate it until ready to use. You can prepare the spread several hours or even a day before you plan to use it. Let the spread return to room temperature before serving.
FOR THE HERB OIL RUB 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
Transfer the polenta triangles to the prepared baking sheets, arranging them about 1 inch apart. BAKE the polenta triangles until they are crisp and lightly browned, about 20 minutes, switching the positions of the baking sheets from the top rack to the bottom rack after 10 minutes. TRANSFER the baked polenta triangles to a large serving platter and serve immediately topped with a small amount of the Sun-Dried Tomato Spread, if desired.

DIRECTIONS BRINE THE PORK COMBINE the honey, seeds, if using, peppercorns, and 4 cups of water in a large pot. Cover the pot, let come to a boil over high heat, and let boil for about 1 minute, stirring occasionally to dissolve the salt. Remove the brine mixture from the heat and stir in 4 more cups of water. Refrigerate the brine or place it in the freezer to cool to room temperature. Pour the brine into a ceramic or glass bowl or other nonreactive container large enough that the pork roast can be completely submerged. Add the pork, cover the bowl loosely with plastic wrap, and refrigerate the pork for 6 to 8 hours (longer brining may cause the pork to become too salty).
if using, into the fig mixture. If desired, season with additional pepper to taste. Set the stuffing aside to cool completely (you will have about 21/2 cups stuffing).
REMOVE the pork from the brine and rinse it under cold water. Pat the pork dry with paper towels and discard the brine.
USING your fingers, pry the cuts open to make a cavity for the stuffing. Stuff the roast, using the handle of a long wooden spoon to push the stuffing deep into the roast. Be sure to force the stuffing well into the middle to fill the center of the roast. It helps to work from both ends of each cut. 9 Preheat the oven to 400˚F and tie the roast.
PREPARE the bacon and fig stuffing: Cook the bacon in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat until the bacon is lightly browned and most of the fat is rendered, 5 to 8 minutes, stirring often and adjusting the heat as necessary. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper towellined plate to drain, reserving the bacon fat in the saucepan. You should have 1 to 2 tablespoons of fat. If there’s more, pour off and discard the excess. HEAT the bacon fat in the saucepan over low heat. Add the onion and shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is very soft and lightly browned at the edges, 8 to 10 minutes. ADD the drained bacon, figs, granulated sugar, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, bay leaf, and of water to the saucepan and season with pepper to taste. Cover the pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Then, reduce the heat as necessary to maintain an even simmer and cook, uncovered, until most of the liquid has evaporated, 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove and discard the bay leaf, transfer the fig mixture to a medium-size bowl, and let cool for about 10 minutes. HEAT the 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a small skillet. Add the bread crumbs and cook over low heat until evenly browned, 3 to 4 minutes, stirring often. Stir the browned bread crumbs and the parsley and Armagnac or Cognac,

MAKE a pocket in the pork roast for the stuffing. Starting at one end and using a long knife (a boning knife works well for this), insert the blade through the center of the roast, making a 1 1/2- to 2-inchwide horizontal cut that runs from one end of the roast to the other. (If you find it easier, make 2 cuts halfway into the meat, working from each end of the roast toward the center so that the cuts meet in the middle.) Make another 1 the first cut, forming a cross. Place the pork in a large roasting pan.
MAKE THE HERB OIL RUB PLACE the 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the rosemary, chopped garlic, 4 teaspoon of table salt, and rub the stuffed pork roast all over with the oil and herb mixture. ROAST the pork for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350˚F and continue roasting the pork for about 20 minutes longer. Use an instant-read meat thermometer to measure the internal temperature of the roast and gauge how close the pork is to being done, inserting the thermometer into the thickest part of the meat 10 minutes after you have reduced the oven temperature. The roast will be done when the meat thermometer registers 135˚F, or 140˚F, if you like your pork a little more cooked. The internal temperature will rise rapidly after the roast reaches 125˚F; monitor it closely to keep the pork from overcooking.

ike many of you, we love Walter White, and we are intrigued and amazed by his walk on the wild side. But we’ve lately discovered our own version of “Breaking Bad,” and we are not afraid to share our latest heaven-inspired indulgence. Truth be told, this little bit of naughty was taught to me by the Master himself, Steve Jenkins. No, it is not intended for polite company, as it breaks every rule I have ever associated with Emily Post, but here it goes. While nothing quite compares with the very first taste of our NEW Fairway Hazelnut Spread, we learned quickly during our “cuttings” (where you compare various production samples) that the best gift ever is an almost empty jar of our new Fairway Hazelnut Spread. As would be the case late one afternoon after a particularly jampacked day of off-site meetings, we returned to our big communal office room, sort of like a loft, and we started rummaging around for something to eat as we had missed lunch, a rarity for us Fairway folks, I assure you. Infinitely wise, Steve grabs the sadly depleted jar and removes the top with an almost sinister glare. Into the open
126 | FLAVORS MAGAZINE
jar goes a scoop of organic vanilla ice cream, a samplepint, handmade by our friends in Brooklyn. Next, Steve opened his ubiquitous pocketknife, and quickly sliced one of the bananas we had sitting on the conference table. I can’t even begin to tell you how something SO wrong could be SO right. We passed around a few spoons, loving the instant bottoms-up sundae. Our new hazelnut spread is made from an ages-old family recipe in the Piedmont region of Italy. It is ultra-creamy, with a higher hazelnut content than our competition. Your family is going to LOVE this. YOU are going to love this. Spark up your back-to-school method of operations. When you open the cupboard to find an almost-empty jar of Fairway’s NEW Hazelnut Spread, as you are likely to do, don’t start muttering under your breath, secretly cursing whichever beloved family member left you in the lurch. Get creative instead. Look for some yogurt, granola, berries—whatever strikes your fancy. This is a “glass half full” situation—truly it is.
WITH ICE CREAM Swirl into vanilla ice cream for a quick yet special dessert. Make a hazelnut spread sundae loaded with chopped hazelnuts, dark chocolate chips, and banana.
FOR BREAKFAST Add to pancake, French toast, or crepe batter. Spread on muffins or banana
BONUS Recently, someone told me that they slice a banana—skin on—spread Fairway’s Hazelnut Spread in the center, wrap in foil, and either bake or grill! -f FAIRWAYMARKET.COM | 127

HEAT the oven to broil and arrange a rack about 5 to 6 inches from the top of the oven. PLACE the asparagus on a foiled baking sheet, drizzle them with the olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Using your hands, toss until the spears are evenly coated with the oil. Transfer them to the large plate and set the baking sheet aside. STARTING just under the scaled tip of the asparagus, wrap each spear with 1 slice of prosciutto in a downward spiral toward the cut end, just barely overlapping the seams of the prosciutto. Place on the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining asparagus, leaving as much space as possible between each spear while still fitting all of them onto the baking sheet. (Make sure the spears don’t actually touch, or the asparagus and prosciutto will steam and won’t crisp.) BROIL for 3 minutes, then remove the baking sheet from the oven and flip the asparagus over.

Happy, Healthy Holiday >> HEALTHY TWISTS ON HOLIDAY FAVORITES by Nora Bass & Olivia Wheat
he holiday season means get-togethers with family and friends and, undoubtedly, bountiful food. From a spin on stuffing or candied potatoes to pumpkin and black bean crockpot chili to gluten-free pumpkin custards, the following recipes should be shared and savored alongside a main entrée—like Fairway’s Rotisserie Chicken or Orange Thanksgiving Turkey recipes. With Halloween just around the corner, why not carve pumpkins while letting your crockpot cook for you? Our Pumpkin, Avocado, and Black Bean Chili is a wonderful variation on traditional chili that freezes well and tastes even better as leftovers. Using Fairway canned tomatoes and dried spices, your chili is well on its way to being fantastic. As we recommend in all our cooking, use Fairway’s Olive Oil, which is shipped directly to the store in 200-liter barrels from off-the-beaten-path, small family growers and millers; the result is fresher, tastier oil specifically made to heighten any dish! Simply add the ingredients, flip on the slow-cooker switch and you’re
cooking a hearty, heart-warming meal. This recipe is a definite keeper for the holidays! Potatoes are a holiday staple and offer an abundance of preparation variations. Satisfy your sweet tooth with brown sugar-glazed red potatoes and a marshmallowand-almond topping. In this delicious, sweet version of candied red potatoes, the potatoes are parboiled then baked, for a surprise twist that will surely become a family favorite. Be sure also to try Fairway’s sweet-tooth take on holiday stuffing by using cherries and pecans! Looking for a gluten-free holiday dessert option? Our seasonally appropriate Pumpkin-Maple Custards with Fairway Crystallized Ginger are savory and a little spicy, giving you a ton of wheat-free flavor. Call your friends and family over, get in the kitchen, and whip up Fairway’s healthy twists on holiday classics.

MEANWHILE, lightly butter a 9-by13-inch baking dish. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium. Add onion, celery, and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until onion and celery are softened, about 7 minutes. Add cherries, pecans, sage, and fennel seed and cook, stirring, 1 minute.
1 (12- to 14-lb) Fairway Turkey, neck and giblets removed Salt and pepper 2 tbsps Fairway Dried Parsley 2 tbsps Fairway Dried Rosemary
2 tbsps Fairway Dried Sage 3 navel oranges, 2 cut into 8 wedges and 1 sliced for garnish 3 small red onions, each cut into 8 wedges
5 bay leaves ¾ stick (6 tbsp) unsalted butter, melted Optional: Fairway Gravy
DIRECTIONS PREHEAT oven to 425°F. TRANSFER to a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. ADD parsley, eggs, and baguette cubes; stir to combine. Add half of broth, stir until absorbed, and repeat with rest of broth. Season generously with salt and pepper and transfer stuffing to dish. BAKE on middle rack until deep golden brown on top, 25 to 30 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes before serving.
REDUCE oven temperature to 350°F. Brush remaining ¼ cup butter over turkey and roast 30 minutes more.
RINSE turkey inside and out and pat dry. STIR together the parsley, rosemary, sage and 1 tbsp each of salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub the herb mixture into the cavity of the turkey, then stuff large cavity with oranges, 1 onion, and bay leaves. Season the outside of the turkey with 1¼ tsps salt and ½ tsp pepper. Tie drumsticks together with kitchen string and secure wings to body with small skewers. PUT turkey on a rack set in a large flameproof roasting pan and roast in middle of oven for 30 minutes. WHILE turkey is roasting, toss remaining 2 onions with 2 tbsps melted butter.
SCATTER buttered onion wedges around the turkey, baste with butter and continue to roast for 1 to 1.5 hours. Be sure to baste the turkey every 30 minutes (add a little water or chicken broth to pan if onions get too dark). The turkey is done when an instant-read thermometer inserted into fleshy part of a thigh (do not touch bone) registers 170°F or the turkey is no longer pink at the bone, the juices run clear and the skin is golden brown. (Note: Fairway turkeys come with their own cooking monitoring system to help you cook them to perfection!) TRANSFER turkey to a platter and let stand 25 minutes (temperature will rise to 180°F). Garnish top of turkey with sliced oranges and serve with Fairway Gravy.

PUMPKIN-MAPLE CUSTARDS WITH FAIRWAY CRYSTALLIZED GINGER
INGREDIENTS (Serves 6)
1½ cups 1% milk 4 Fairway Large Eggs ¾ cup Fairway Maple Syrup ¾ cup canned unseasoned pumpkin puree 1 tsp Fairway Ground Cinnamon ½ tsp Fairway Ground Cloves ¼ tsp salt ¼ cup Fairway Crystallized Ginger Whipped cream (bottled or homemade)
PREHEAT oven to 325°F. Heat a kettle of water for the water bath. Line a roasting pan with a folded kitchen towel. HEAT milk over low heat in a small saucepan until barely steaming, but not boiling. WHISK eggs and syrup in a large bowl until smooth. Gently whisk in the warm milk (a little bit at a time so the eggs don’t cook). Add pumpkin puree, cinnamon, cloves and salt; whisk until blended.
DIVIDE the mixture among six 6-oz (¾-cup) custard cups. Place custard cups in the prepared roasting pan. Pour enough boiling water into the pan to come halfway up the sides of the custard cups.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or until chilled. TO SERVE, top each custard with a dollop of whipped cream and Fairway Crystallized Ginger. -f
