Family-run since 1933, when Nathan Glickberg began with a fruit and vegetable stand, Fairway has grown to 14 extraordinary stores (with more to come soon!) with over 600,000 square feet in retail space and over 4,000 employees, serving millions of loyal customers each year.

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 lovers rejoice! Our inventory hovers around 650 different cheeses from a dozen countries at any time. Most of the world’s greatest cheeses were first sold here at Fairway starting in 1980. Under the expert guidance of Steve Jenkins, Fairway’s master cheesemonger and America’s first French-certified “maître-fromager,” Fairway’s cheese operations today are considered a beacon of success to food retailers the world over. From our global treks to sniff out the best to our unique ability to get you cheese that is both fresh and affordable, Fairway brings the world’s best cheese right to you. We promise you cheese heaven.

kOSHeR COFFee

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.

We offer fresh coffee roasted on the premises and a practice of using only superior beans. Our number one rule: our beans are treated with respect and care. This means we stay away from mainstream commercial coffee, including corner-cutters and companies that 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 every one of their coffee beans as much as we do. We test and test 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.

MeAT Our meat department is an area where we really go the extra mile to give you the opportunity to shine. We only source and put out meat that we ourselves would buy for our families. 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.

ORGANIC & NATURAL

Take a trip around the world without ever leaving our store. This is the part of Fairway that truly makes us a one-stop shop and an extraordinary food shopping experience. We import the best of the best, directly, from over 100 producers in Europe. Many of the European foodstuffs we carry are exclusive to Fairway. We have a particular passion for our exclusives. They’re the reason we’re in the newspapers and magazines all the time, and of utmost importance to the best chefs and most passionate foodies.

Eating naturally, organically, and healthfully is a way of life. At Fairway, you can make great choices for your body, your family, and the environment— without having to spend a fortune. Our extensive organic and natural selection includes fruits and veggies, natural and fresh juices, organic beef, chicken, meats, nut butters, dried fruits and nuts, cheeses and cold cuts, breads and groceries, health and beauty products, dairy (including Fairway’s own organic milk), and over 2,000 gluten-free products. In fact, you could say sourcing new organic products is part of our DNA.

TRADITIONAL GROCeRY

PRODUCE

Have your shopping list at hand and gear up with your cart ready to cruise through the aisles when you come into your local Fairway Market. Whether you’re coming in for those hard-to-find specialty items on your list or traditional groceries, our selection of the brand names you love, combined with our expertise in specialty foods, makes us truly unique as your one-stop shop for everything from cereal to caviar. Our grocery aisles are filled, floor to ceiling, with the national and traditional brand names you know and trust—Tide, Bounty, Kleenex, Charmin, Lysol, Poland Spring, Oreo, Cheerios, Lipton, Wonder, Hershey’s, Coke, Green Giant, and so many more.

We’ve come a long way from being a single fruit and vegetable storefront on the corner, but top-quality produce is still our priority. We are rooted with the values of supporting local growers and providing our customers the freshest and best selection of produce items. Today, we are able to scale our produce operations to be the biggest per-store in the industry, without sacrificing either freshness or quality. We buy direct from the source and buy locally grown produce, as well as sourcing from all over the world, following the growing seasons of every region to offer you only the best produce year-round.

SEAFOOD Our seafood department is an area where we really stand out from the rest. We have only the highest standards for selecting our seafood, with seafood experts at the helm of our selection process. We’re the first ones down at the docks every morning to pick out the best fish. We know that a day off means the fish will be less fresh, so we don’t take any days off! We receive every fish whole and fillet it in our stores, reminiscent of the way you would get fish from an outdoor fresh fish market in Europe, or from an old-time fish market in New York City. We offer 50 to 80 different species of fresh fish and seafood in each store every day—over 75% of which are wild. (Now THAT is wild!)

Menus are updated seasonally to take advantage of the freshest local produce and the best ingredients available.

ABOUT FAIRWAY

Fairway Food Update >>

I

t’s hardly a secret that Fairway Market has thrown off the shackles of the bad old days. I speak of a time when there were but a few Fairways for so many far-flung people who had no choice but to drive to us. There are 15 Fairways now, and more coming.

I don’t deny that there are lots of people who still don’t have ready access to a Fairway. Nor do I deny the noise from many who deplore the proliferation of the new megaFairways, preferring instead the cozy little store we used to be on the Upper West Side. Success has its drawbacks, and it is my job to forestall the eventuality that people will be justified in ruing ours. It’s a cliché that ‘bigger is not always better,’ but it’s more often true than not. Often the inevitable result of success is a sickly-sweet smugness wafting from the source of the success. With a super-successful retail business, a cool distance might arise between merchant and patron. This would be a hideous and marked departure from the longtime fact that we know most of you, and that we ingenuously, truly welcome every return trip you make to shop with us. This joy at greeting you is something that has ordered my life for 40 years, and just because my company has gotten bigger, there is no reason for either of us to feel less than grateful that we found each other. I’m the same as you; I dislike bigger. I dislike feeling like just another face in the crowd. One of the reasons we’ve done so well is that we always managed to make you feel special, and that we really, really do respect the choice you’ve made to shop with us.

30 | FLAVORS MAGAZINE

So for the last few decades, it has been an obvious commitment to your trust and pleasure that we chose to master, and master it we did. How we did it is, again, a commitment—in this case, to serious food. We consciously chose to have not just the regional best, but a world-class best selection and execution of conventional fruits and vegetables, certified-organic produce, organic baked goods and organic shelf stuff, cheese and charcuterie and salumi, olive oil and vinegar and every crucial ingredient in recipes no matter how arcane. We have re-committed to what it is that got us here in the first place: the lowest prices we can possibly muster. I just saw us in The New York Times again last week. As usual, Fairway was FIVE DOLLARS A POUND cheaper than a competitor carrying the cheese (Tarentaise) that won BEST OF SHOW at the annual American Cheese Society competition. I said to myself, ”There we go again! All’s right with the world!” I’d come to a Fairway on a regular basis just to look at and taste all those olive oils. It’s stunning, what we’ve done with olive oils. If I had to pick just one, I’d have to be in therapy. We exclusively import TWELVE (count ‘em) TWELVE of Dr. Gino Celletti’s Italian regional early-harvest monocultivars, and another shipment is approaching my warehouse as we speak. Dr. Celletti’s remarkable book MONOCULTIVAR – THE PERFECT OLIVE OIL is here, too, for sale, and at our cost. We don’t make a penny on Dr. Gino’s book, and if you read just the “36 Truths” inside, you’ll know more about olive oil than most ‘experts’— certainly more than any chef you can name.

Speaking of olive oil, you DO know the world’s best potato chips come from Spain, don’t you? And that the reason is that Spaniards fry them in olive oil? Spanish people are the world’s best fryers. Friars, maybe, but fryers, definitely. You ever sit before fried fish and seafood in Spain? Patatas bravas? Bunyols, for heaven’s sake? Food fried by a Spaniard is more often than not ethereal, and without fried food greasiness; seemingly un-fried, if you can imagine. Fairway is the only store that offers you TWO brands of Spanish potato chips: Anavieja from Soria, and Patatas Torres from Barcelona. Both are meant to be served as a cocktail treat. Spaniards would never partner a sandwich with a handful of potato chips, much less a bowl of chips and dip. These Spanish potato chips are meant to stand alone, to be meditated over, to be savored chip by chip. I particularly crave the Anavieja paprika-enhanced chip. And while I normally do not care for truffle-infused anything, I cannot believe the alluring subtlety of the Patatas Torres black truffled chips. We offer the Anavieja chips certified-organic, too. And both outfits use sterling ingredients, Spanish potatoes and Spanish EVOO, and Murcian Spanish paprika. God knows where the black truffles come from, but who’s concerned? You will flip for this chip. THESE chips. And this is coming from one who has assiduously cut chips out of his diet. Did you get a load of our Fairwaylabel ice creams? No? Hottest item ever. You have to jump on every single one of the flavors, and this is coming from one who despises newfangled flavors in everything, certainly ice cream. (And foam. I hate foam, unless it’s on a frosty mug of Pilsener.)

etting creative in the kitchen is oh-so-easy with delicious ingredients from Fairway Market. Here’s a fresh idea: why not create your own healthy pizzas, in the form of dinner pastries, tarts, and flatbreads? You get a filling meal with your choice of fresh produce, savory meats, rich and luscious cheeses, and locally grown herbs. You can even go gluten-free with your flatbread crust, if you so choose!

Our Fairway Black Olive Tapenade is the perfect topping for homemade flatbread pizza, with white bean paste made with Roma tomatoes, goat cheese, and basil.

Of course, time, or rather the lack thereof, is often one of the biggest obstacles to cooking something new�— but fear not! Using Fairway’s superb ingredients, these delectable desserts take no time at all and satisfy like you would not believe. With summer schedules over and the return of school and career in full effect, everyone needs a no-fuss, easyto-make treat. Not to worry, we’ve got you covered with Fairway Cookie Dough Delights. Premade with love (and, of course, the finest ingredients), all you have to do is place the dough on a baking sheet and slide it into the oven for 10 minutes. The hardest part will be deciding between the Kitchen Sink and Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough varieties. Just let Fairway do the rest! What better way to wave summer bonfires goodbye than to make Indoor S’mores? Don’t be afraid to get creative, such as by mixing Fairway’s white chocolate chips with our milk chocolate chips for added dessert dimension.

Made in minutes, this ooey-gooey summer staple makes the perfect transition into fall. Speaking of rich Fairway chocolate flavors, have you tried Fairway’s Hazelnut Spread yet? Made in Piedmont, Italy, with premium cocoa, rich hazelnuts, and sweet skim milk, this spread has won over the masses! Whether drizzled over caramelized bananas or baked into Blondies made with fresh Fairway Organic Peanut Butter, one thing is for sure: Fairway Hazelnut Spread elevates every dish to swoon-worthy status. Now, for those non-chocolate lovers, get ready for fruity fulfillment with Fairway’s freshest fruits! Gather together a few cups of fresh berries, such as blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries; create a crunchy, candied topping with pecans and oats, then bake, and top with Fairway Vanilla Ice Cream. You’ve made yourself a delicious dessert that will likely be devoured in as little time as it took to make! And for a dessert that can double as a weekend brunch treat try our Strawberry Cherry Cupcakes with Honey Salted Caramel Whipped Cream. Sweet and a touch salty, this combination is a total win.

Fresh Strawberry Cherry Cupcakes with Strawberry Cherry Compote Drizzle & Honey Salted Caramel Whipped Cream

INGREDIENTS (Serves 4-6)

INGREDIENTS (Serves 4-6)

½ cup unsalted butter, melted 1 large egg
 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
 1 tbsp vanilla extract
 1 cup all-purpose flour
 ½ cup Fairway Organic Peanut Butter ½ cup Fairway White Chocolate Chips 1/3 cup Fairway Hazelnut Spread

For Cupcakes: 2-¼ cups cake flour ¼ tsp kosher salt ½ cup unsalted butter 2 large Fairway eggs 1 tsp pure Fairway Vanilla Extract 1 cup buttermilk Tip: Use powder, as it keeps for longer ½ cup strawberries, trimmed and finely diced ½ cup cherries, stalks and pits removed, coarsely chopped

DIRECTIONS

For Compote Drizzle: ½ cup strawberries, trimmed and finely diced ½ cup cherries, stalks and pits removed, coarsely chopped ½ cup confectioner’s sugar 1 tbsp unsalted butter Squeeze of fresh lemon juice Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray; set aside. Using a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter in the microwave, about 30-40 seconds on high power. Wait momentarily before adding the egg, so you don’t scramble it. Add the egg, brown sugar, and vanilla, and whisk until smooth. Add the flour and stir until just combined—don’t overmix. Stir in the peanut butter and white chocolate chips. Pour batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula. Evenly add and swirl the Fairway Hazelnut Spread. To create the marbled pattern, drizzle

the spread over batter in evenly spaced, parallel lines, each spanning the length of the pan. Starting at the top of one of the lines, drag a toothpick in a zigzag formation to create the marbling. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until done. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean, or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter. Allow bars to cool in pan for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving. Bars will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 6 months

For the Whipped Cream: 2 cups Honey Salted Caramel Greek Yogurt 2 oz sugar Few dashes of Fairway Vanilla Extract

DIRECTIONS Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a large 6-cupcake tray.

Put the flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl and whisk to blend. USING an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together, beating on medium speed until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time. With a spatula, be sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl and mix again. Beat in the vanilla. Change the mixing speed from medium to low, pour in 1/3 of the flour mixture. Add half the buttermilk and beat until blended. Repeat, switching between flour and buttermilk, blending in between. As soon as last buttermilk addition has been blended, immediately stop blending. Beat in the strawberries and cherries until just combined. We prefer to have them diced, rather than pureeing the berries into the batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared cupcake pan, using the spatula to even the surface top. Bake 40 to 50 minutes, until browned and toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the strawberries, cherries, sugar, and ¼ cup water. Cook over medium heat until the fruit is very soft and mixture begins to thicken. Stir in the butter, lemon juice, and salt. Taste and add more sugar, lemon or salt as needed. Serve this as is or puree until smooth; we prefer chunky, but that’s up to you! Make the whipped cream. In an electric mixing bowl, whip all the ingredients together until you have soft peaks. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Cool the cupcakes in the pan on a wire rack; once cool, gently place one on each plate. Serve with the Strawberry Cherry Compote Drizzle and Honey Salted Caramel Whipped Cream. -f

Exclusively Fairway

Steve Jenkins on the Foods You Can’t Find Anywhere Else by Steve Jenkins

Y

ou probably don’t realize it, but you have been coming to Fairway for lots of reasons – not just your understandable desire to replenish stocks of perishable staples on the home front. Milk, butter and eggs are one thing, but your burning desire for another bottle of Fairway Lambrusco Vinegar is entirely another. What makes Fairway so pleasurable and thus so successful is not just its enormous selection of foodstuffs at competitioncrushing low prices, but the fact that you just can’t find a lot of our stuff anywhere else. Fairway exclusively imports these things our own self – our own little selfies. ‘WE’ actually are US! It is we who talk to you via this kind of signage all over the store, all day, throughout your visits. All these wonderful things are US, TOO! They are exclusive to Fairway. We travel — to Europe mostly — and we are unashamedly Euro-centric in our approach to food and entertaining with food. We also scour the United States

and Canada, and we are only just beginning to pay attention to the Far East. It is a fact that we earn our livings through our passion for artisanal foodstuffs that we transform into ambassadors representing the romantic and gorgeous regions of the countries we most frequent, and we are there again and again, four and five times a year, for weeks on end. Rough life, eh? But since nobody else is doing it, it might as well be FAIRWAY.

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

DIRECTIONS

INGREDIENTS (Serves 4)

DIRECTIONS

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), chifonade 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!

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.

Fresh Fish

>> sEAsOnAL RECIPEs FROM FAIRwAY by Olivia Wheat

F

ish can be quick-cooking, tasty, and super-healthy. Sadly, some people shy away from this staple because of the smell, or their perceived lack of cooking skills. The trick to incorporating seafood into your diet is to know a few basic fish cooking techniques and failproof recipes—made even easier with Fairway. Perhaps the easiest and most versatile cooking technique for seafood is to cook the fish ‘en papillote’ as they say in French, or in parchment. A restaurant dish that easily adapts to the home kitchen, this process describes a dish that has been encased and baked in parchment paper. The packet prevents moisture from escaping, allowing the steam to gently cook the fish and its surrounding ingredients delicately and without browning. As it bakes, the fish stays moist while intermingling with the various ingredient flavors placed within the packet. This is a naturally low-fat way to cook, since little oil is needed. Simply decide on a fish, oil, acid, herb, and vegetables. This time around we used halibut, hailed by fish lovers for its firm texture, flaky white meat, and accessibility, as well as lemon, tomatoes, thyme, and Fairway olives. Looking ahead to future fish dishes, keep the cooking technique the same; just get creative with your culinary substitutions for this perfect 10-minute meal!

Salmon is perhaps the most common fish to cook; salmon is filled with Omega-3 fatty acids, which have many health benefits, including protecting against heart disease. Cooking time can vary, depending on the thickness of the salmon. As a general rule, cook 10 minutes for each inch of thickness, then check the center and make sure it’s light pink and opaque. Salmon can be served alongside almost any side dish; Fairway has some amazing prepared ‘Table’ sides, like our Mediterranean Wheatberry Salad. Grilled whole branzino makes for an impressive presentation; luckily, Fairway staff can clean the fish for you if you don’t want to get your hands too dirty at home! To enhance the flavor, fill the fish cavity with mint sprigs, lime slices, and chilies before cooking. Finish this wonderfully easy dish with Fairway Pesto, a jar filled with the freshest selection of basil and finest quality of olive oil from around the world. So, head over to Fairway’s seafood section, which offers 50 to 80 different species of fresh fish and seafood, and our friendly staff will be sure to help you overcome your fish fears!

Tofu Time

>> THE PERFECT MEAT SUBSTITUTE by Olivia Wheat

I

n Fairway’s humble opinion, tofu is the perfect vegetarian substitution to meat entrees. Congealing soymilk, and then pressing the resulting curds into soft white blocks creates tofu. This bean curd, similar to scallops, has a subtle taste that works well for both sweet and savory dishes. While tofu may have relatively little flavor and a low calorie count, this ingredient has large amounts of protein and iron. Our lowest-calorie recipe is a simply prepared tofu alongside a grilled vegetable salad. Looking to pack more of a punch? Try marinating the tofu in Fairway’s Sesame Teriyaki Sauce and prepared Asian stir-fry vegetable mix. In fact, we love our Sesame Teriyaki Sauce sauce so much, we suggest serving extra on the side for those looking to drizzle on even more! For a more filling meal, try serving tofu on a plate of soba noodles. When cooking soba noodles, you must be sure not to overcook them (usually about 5 to 8 minutes). Now, here’s the insider trick the package instructions don’t tell you: immediately drain your noodles in cold water with a

little ice to stop the cooking. Don’t skimp on the amount of times you cool-rinse your soba noodles; this technique is the secret behind ensuring you don’t wind up with a glob of tangled noodles at the end of your chopsticks. We also recommend using your hands when rinsing your noodles to wash off the excess starch and prevent a gummy pile of noodles! Combine with Fairway Edamame with Arame and Carrots in our prepared foods section, and you have a healthy meal fast. For a unique recipe with truly dynamic flavor, try Fairway’s sun-dried tomato and mustard marinated crunchy tofu. A common cooking technique in many parts of East and Southeast Asia involves deep-frying tofu; this recipe uses a pan-frying technique with the help of a few Fairway products to create a savory dish that is far from bland. Fairway’s tofu is available in soft, medium, and extra firm. Each variety works in our tofu recipes, so we recommend trying all three to see which version of this versatile ingredient you prefer. Be sure to keep us posted on your findings!

DIRECTIONS Remove tofu from package and place on a plate between paper towels with a plate (or other heavy object) on top to remove excess water. Using a large grill pan or on grill over medium-high heat, drizzle 1 tbsp of olive oil. Cook the corn for about 4 minutes on each side until some kernels begin to brown. Transfer to bowl.

Remove plate from tofu and slice. Re-oil the same pan and place the tofu on the grill; try to not move it so you get distinct brown grill marks, about 5 minutes per side. Remove and add to bowl with corn.

Grain Mustard, ¾ cup Fairway Olive Oil and ¼ cup Fairway White Wine Vinegar (note: this salad dressing works with a variety of salads; add lemon to modify). Season with salt and pepper.

Re-oil the same pan and grill the asparagus until browned. Do the same with the scallions and peppers.

Once all the vegetables are browned, add everything back to the pan to evenly heat all the ingredients. Transfer back to the bowl, drizzle the dressing and serve with a side of dressing.

DIRECTIONS

Take the tofu out of the package and place it in between paper towels between two plates to remove excess water, for about 5 minutes. Cut the tofu into ½-in. to ¼-in. thick slices (cutting tofu into correct slices is important—too thick and they wont cook all the way through, too thin and you destroy the custardy interior). Optional: soak your tofu in salt water for 15 minutes (you can skip this step if you are short on time, however this trick will result in a better crust and texture); repeat the squeezing water step. Transfer tofu to a big bowl and drizzle enough Fairway Sesame Teriyaki Sauce to coat/marinade the tofu.

1 package Fairway Extra Firm Tofu 1 package Fairway Asian Vegetable Mix Fairway Sesame Teriyaki Sauce 2-3 tbsps sesame oil

Meanwhile, heat about 2 tbsps of sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat—enough oil to thinly coat the bottom of the skillet. Place the vegetables and tofu in the pan and sauté until golden brown, about 5 minutes on one side. Stir and flip both the vegetables and tofu. Try to allow the tofu to cook undisturbed for about 4-5 minutes to develop a nice browned color. Remove from heat and serve with an extra drizzle of Fairway Sesame Teriyaki Sauce. 128 | FLAVORS MAGAZINE

t

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.

AN ORGANIC ORIGINAL AND A FAIRTRADE FIRST.

Chocolate made in good taste.

Find us at Facebook.com/GreenandBlacks.US

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.

136 | FLAVORS MAGAZINE

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.

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.

>> 5 Fairway Prepared Fruits & Meal Ideas by Hannah Howard

resh cut fruit is a truly beautiful thing. At Fairway Market, we take our fruit seriously. We know that cut fruit doesn’t stay at its sweetest and freshest for very long, so we carefully cut fruit every single day at every single store, to ensure it will be at its tastiest and best quality when you pick it up out of our cases. Most retailers prepare their fruit in some big warehouse and ship it out, or order pre-packed cut fruit from their produce guys. The sacrifice? Quality and flavor. We go the extra mile because we respect

you, and know you take food as seriously as we do. We’ve come a long way from our beginning as a corner fruit and vegetable stand on the Upper West Side, but top-quality produce is still our priority. We are rooted with values of supporting local growers, and providing the freshest and the best selection possible. We buy direct always, and we buy local-grown whenever possible. Here’s what we’re doing with our fresh fruit this season. (Yum!)

Grapefruit Fresh Berries

Start the day right with a beautiful parfait: layer pre-cut grapefruit, vanilla Fairway Greek Yogurt, and all-natural Fairway Honey in a glass. Sprinkle with your favorite granola, and dig in! Grapefruits are bursting with Vitamin A and C, and their tart brightness will wake up your taste buds.

Berries are rich with antioxidants, low in sugar, and inarguably delicious. We love our chicken breast and thighs with jam, but a bunch of ripe mashed-up berries works just as well, and cuts back on sugar. Grill chicken, and dress with a sauce of fresh berries and a spoonful of minced chipotle chili in adobo sauce. A great weeknight meal.

Pomegranate Seeds These antioxidant-packed gems glisten like little rubies and add great flavor and crunch to any salad. One of our favorites: arugula, creamy avocado, and a handful of crimson pomegranate seeds. Dress with Fairway EVOO and a sprinkle of sea salt.

Cantaloupe Wrap a slice of Fairway Prosciutto di Parma around each wedge of sweet, juicy melon and arrange on a platter. Voila, you have an elegant and ridiculously simple app for company, or a treat for yourself. The rich, salty, meaty prosciutto and the candy-sweet cantaloupe are even better together than the sum of their tasty parts.

Papaya Papayas are chock-full of vitamin C, potassium, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin E, and an enzyme called papain, which is believed to help digestion. Whir yourself a crave-able, simple smoothie from papaya chunks, milk, Fairway honey, and a bit of fresh chopped ginger. -f

wYMAn’s OF MAInE BLUEBERRIEs by Guy Chandonnet

F

airway Market has been buying and selling frozen fruit from Wyman’s for quite some time now. Why? Because it’s the best quality product available for Fairway’s customers. Founded by Jasper Wyman in 1874, Jasper Wyman and Son is a family-owned company with a heritage of leadership in the growing

and marketing of wild blueberries. Over the course of many generations, the company has perfected the science of fresh freezing fruit to maintain optimum flavor while maintaining the nutritional value. Wyman’s wild blueberries are grown on over 12,000 acres in Maine, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick, Canada.

vIsItInG wYMAn’s OF MAInE On a beautiful, clear August day, I had the opportunity to visit the fields where Wyman’s grows their beautiful, tasty berries. I also toured the processing plant where the berries receive several water baths to remove the debris from the field, and to separate the perfect berries from the imperfect ones. I was able to see firsthand the commitment to quality and care that every Wyman’s employee provides to bring the best fruit to market.

MAInE BLUEBERRIEs The Maine wild blueberry is a ground-crawling bush that is only about 12 inches tall, compared to the larger plant that produces the cultivated blueberry. The wild blueberry is unique to Maine and southern Canada. It cannot be transplanted or grown in any other part of the world. The wild blueberry plant is totally dependent on the honeybee for pollination, which is why Wyman’s is dedicated to the protection of this species. On hilly land, the blueberry is harvested by hand. On relatively flat land, unique, custom-made combine harvesters costing over $250,000 each are used; on both sides of the machines, wheels with what look like slightly bent fingers attached rotate and churn through the blueberry plant, scooping off the blueberries. The berries then fall onto a conveyor belt that drops them off the back of the harvester into buckets that are constantly rotated by workers on the back. Within hours of harvest, the berries are transported to a processing facility not far from Bar Harbor, Maine.

FROM wYMAn’s tO YOU Once at the facility, the berries are carefully poured onto a conveyor system, where they begin their journey to becoming frozen blueberries. They go through a series of water baths, and are also hand-sorted to remove stones, debris, and imperfect berries. Once thoroughly cleaned, they are dried by a giant vacuum, then carried on a conveyor through a large tunnel where the berries are frozen. They are then packaged and ready for shipment all over the world, and to all Fairway Market stores. -f

Enjoy Wyman’s of Maine Blueberries year round at your Fairway Market today.

amilton Wright Mabie once said, “Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.” On that note, the holidays offer the perfect opportunity to gather together those we love to celebrate. And what better way to show love than through the joy of food?

Communal gatherings require communal foods, and no party is complete without a dip. Plus, Fairway baguettes are the perfect crusty compliment to any dip or spread. Our Cheddar Dip with Fairway Raspberry Preserves is a one-bowl wonder that uses just a few ingredients, including sharp cheddar and Fairway’s fresh preserves that taste homemade. You’ll

be amazed at the deliciousness of this dish that takes just five minutes to prepare. Looking for a super-healthy, gluten-free appetizer? Make your own oven-baked beet chips, and then simply add Fairway Pesto, a homemade vegetable puree, and a dollop of goat cheese. This recipe is a color and flavor sensation, made even more dynamic when you use a combination of yellow and red beets. The carrot puree is just one topping example; you can also use Fairway’s hummus, available in a variety of flavors, including Roasted Red Pepper and Sweet Roasted Garlic. For an extremely easy yet elegant appetizer, try wrapping Fairway prosciutto around fresh asparagus spears drizzled with Fairway Extra Virgin Olive Oil and broiled until crispy. Top with paper-thin slices of Parmigiano-Reggiano for sumptuous flavor. As a host, you have enough to worry about; hopefully these party finger food recipes will take one thing off your plate (no pun intended).

airway pies are nothing short of exceptional. That’s because our expert bakers use natural ingredients and bake our pies (and breads, cookies, cakes, cupcakes and pastries!) fresh daily. From pecan to apple to pumpkin to sweet potato, these pies are as close to homemade as you can get without cooking them yourself. Fairway’s Pumpkin Pie is perfectly spiced with a light and airy texture. The buttery, flaky, crisp crust has that wonderful hint of salt that makes all the flavors in your mouth pop. The ripples in the round edge of the crust bear the marks of delicate fingers that have stretched, caressed, and delicately pinched the dough into place with handcrafted love and attention. Our French Apple Pie uses sliced fresh apples, ground cinnamon, and brown sugar. Our Pecan Pie is full of plump Fairway pecans with a hint of vanilla extract. Never too sweet, these pies are all-natural and taste just right. Check out our adorable and delicious whoopee pies, our legendary New York cheesecake – cakes for every occasion.

FINE ITALIAN CHEESE TO COMPLETE YOUR RECIPE FOR AN INCREDIBLE MEAL

KIDS LOVE THE POP. IT LOVES ‘EM BACK

RUBYROCKETS.COM


FOOD & TRAVEL

T

here really is no other foodstuff as perfect as cheese, neither fruits nor vegetables, meat nor seafood, beans nor grains, breads nor pastries. Not one of these food groups comes close to cheese’s perfection in terms of its intensity and nuance of flavor and fragrance, its remarkable gamut of textures, its ambassadorial regional specificity. I love the way cheese gives such a happy, welcoming hello to these other foods, as if a cheese is on a mission, a stalwart fellow traveler perfectly content to ride alone but evermore ebullient with company. I also love the way cheese always acts as the mediator between often quarrelsome tablemates, the whiny wine too young to be out this late, the sulkingly bitter olive or almond, the tarted-up and shameless piece of fruit that seems to know everything about everybody and is not shy about pointing the finger. Cheese is low maintenance. I value that it requires little more than one’s knife and a sturdy surface. Nor is it so balefully evanescent like fruit and flesh. It will be there when you need it. No foodstuff is so beckoningly sensuous. The texture of Vacherin Mont d’Or is voluptuous. In dominatrix fashion, each is belted, bandoliered by a strip of highly aromatic Norwegian spruce bark lest she spill out of her costume. The feminine fromage de chevre Sainte-Maure de Touraine is hermaphroditically phallic, and even pierced – a piece of rye straw from end-to-end, to keep it from falling completely to pieces. A true Camembert smells of sex. Numerous cheeses have been named for and made to resemble the female breast. The arousal of every cheese via brief exposure to room temperature is evidenced by the cheese becoming moist and slippery. Cheese as an elegant and traditional coda to hautecuisine? As you wish. For me, I prefer it down-and-dirty. My philosophy of selecting cheese is a simple matter, whether the cheese this philosophy is to be applied to is for my own personal enjoyment or that of customers here at Fairway. The simplicity of this matter is borne out by the questions I ask. Is the cheese made more by a person, or more by a machine? Cheese tools are one thing. Even the most hands-on cheese recipe requires vats, hoses, rakes, colanders and thermometers. But if the cheese is a product of mass production, a Henry Ford-like assembly line where very soon the few humans involved will be replaced by robotic arms, then the cheese has been made by a machine, in which case I say, “No thanks!” Massproduced factory cheese is anathema to a memorable

cheese experience. There is no character, no rusticity, no individuality to a factory cheese. Has the cheese been made from raw milk? To use pasteurized milk in the creation of a cheese is unthinkable, illogical, if in fact the goal is to make a cheese that is as good as it can possibly be. And there can be no other goal than that, for me, for all of us. Does the cheese taste good, look good, and does it give itself up nobly to the knife? I will forever be in awe of the fact that cheese is one of the few things in this life that runs roughshod over the old saw, “You can’t judge a book by its cover,” because with cheese, I don’t even need to taste it to know whether it’s good or not, because with cheese, you can tell. If I behold a cheese that looks like it just stepped out of a limousine rather than a truck, a cheese wearing a three-piece suit rather than flannel and corduroy, a cheese sporting a label that is in some garish primary color within a logo crafted by committee, a cheese whose exterior is as flawless and glossy as the promise that its interior will be flabby and slabby, I say I will not select this cheese. It is not worthy of me. If, on the other hand, the exterior of the cheese I behold is in some shade of an earth-tone, from bone-white, to beige, to khaki, to straw-colored, through the russet-reds, rawhides and chocolatey browns, and sports a toadskin or a pebbly surface, or a deer antler’s velvet, a surface that begs to be stroked, or is cloaked in gray gingham, or is stippled or tattooed over every square inch with its name and provenance, or is dusted or rouged or cobwebbed with some beneficent mold, or whose exterior, like that of fermier Saint-Nectaire, like some expressionist painting or Hubble telescopic photo of a distant galaxy, reflects the colors white, yellow, red, green and black, of five distinct and identifiable strains of wild yeasts, each a healthy, flavor-producing substance, I then know the cheese is going to taste good. Heaven knows it looks good. As for that business about the knife, don’t worry about it. It will cut just fine. With regard to my favorite cheese, I remain noncommittal. I’ve always found myself baffled by the question, exactly as I am when asked my favorite color, or which of my children I love the most. I’d have to say my favorite cheese is often the one presently before me. Try the following Fairway favorite select cheeses, cured meats, cured vegetables and nuts for superb cheese pairings.

hy settle for one cuisine when you can enjoy two? Fusion cuisine combines elements from different culinary traditions to create one innovate dish. While there are many types of fusion cuisines, Fairway has focused on Western foods prepared with Eastern ingredients and flavors. Blending flavors and foods rooted in different cultures is no easy feat; luckily for you, Fairway’s expert chefs have created vibrant sauces (with natural, fresh ingredients!) that embrace the many tastes we love from around the world, so you can cook globally inspired meals with ingredients you already know how to prepare. Our Shredded Chicken and Lentil Stuffed Peppers combine wholesome kale and lentils with chicken in bright, yellow peppers with parsley and Parmesan cheese. Fairway Caribbean Mango Sauce for dipping offers a sweet and tangy spin. Our Fairway Rotisserie Chicken, Coconut and Chickpea Curry with Garlic Baguette recipe also provides a savory, seasonal combination of Eastern and Western flavors. Plum tomatoes, chickpeas, coconut milk, cilantro, jalapenos, and Fairway Curry Powder bring perfectly roasted Fairway Rotisserie Chicken to a new level. Add a touch of Fairway Hot Chili Sauce on top and serve with Fairway Fresh Baguette slices warmed with chopped garlic and EVOO, and you have a supremely satiating meal.

eastern spices, including garam masala, transform crisp apples, succulent chicken, and hearty lentils from simple basics into a dynamic, nutrient-dense feast.

CAL PEP A one-of-a-kind dining experience that’s equal parts unforgettable and nerve-racking. At the helm of the dining experience is Pep, the distinguished owner/dictator who both looks and talks like a cartoon character. His caricature adorns many of the placemats, and if you ask politely, you may get to take one home as a souvenir. Lori stole hers, but we’ll worry about that later! Watch closely as Pep paces around the floor running the show, joking with his staff, and calling out orders in his scratchy computer-generated voice. Pep and his restaurant resemble a Catalonian version of the “Soup Nazi” from “Seinfeld,” although the focus is on small fish plates and simple tapas done perfectly; similarities include uniform ordering, single-file lines, and expectations of best behavior. The biggest difference is that you likely won’t quiver when you order at Cal Pep, and you can enjoy Estrella Damms and socialize while you wait for your table if you don’t have reservations. The Fairway team makes this an obligatory meal every time we’re in Barcelona, and we always find ourselves ordering seconds of the Tortilla Trampera and the Fried Squid (Padrone Peppers, too, but that’s a given every time

you dine in Catalonia). Enjoy the tenured staff that will play tricks on you all night long, but make sure you don’t get fooled more than once. Also, pay close attention to the neat wine room tucked above the main dining area; we recommend you visit soon, before the locals are outnumbered.

Eating Our Way Through Spain (continued...) more of the things you really like while filling up at your own pace. The only rule we implemented was that you needed to consume a cerveza or txakoli with every pintxo you ordered. Txakoli is a sparkling dry white wine that is produced in northern Spain and select parts of Chile. It’s customary to pour the wine from above your head into a glass that’s usually below your waist, allowing the liquid to smack the glassware in theatrical fashion. Fortunately (but unfortunately), every bar offered a 4-oz pour of beer or wine, or else things could have been even more interesting.

CANDY AT LA BOQUERIA MARKET

LA BOQUERIA Aside from Camp Nou, “la movida” in Barceloneta, and Hotel 1898, La Boqueria is hands-down my favorite part about Barcelona. I’m not a morning person, but waking up at 6:30 am for work is easy when you can already taste your breakfast and smell your morning coffee. Just steps off La Rambla (and a two-minute walk from 1898) lies La Boqueria, an open-air market and food universe in and of itself. Think San Fran’s Ferry Building or New York’s Chelsea Market, only much, much better! Fresh juices, jamon iberico galore, fruits and vegetables, fish, meat, and short-order food counters that offer meals as good as anything you’ll have in Spain. The presentation of each stall is mind-bending, with each neighboring vendor trying to outdo the next. The vibrancy of colors and smells and energy is remarkable. Unlike Jim Henson’s 1986 version, this is a “Labyrinth” of deliciousness that you’ll want to get lost in forever. Courtesy of Mitchel London’s wisdom, I made a habit of buying wild strawberries every morning to simply keep by my nightstand. The aroma of the berries permeated the room like a sweet-smelling perfume, and it will forever remind me of Barcelona. The Fairway team ate breakfast at La Boqueria every morning of the trip, and if good fortune allowed us to finish work early, we’d scurry back for another meal, or to buy snacks for the evening.

SAN SEBASTIAN PIntXOs On PIntXOs One of my favorite dinners of the trip was organized by Fairway’s favorite Spanish food importer and our dear friend, Iker Fernandez. Iker is a native of San Sebastian, and he was our self-appointed food guide in our postAlimentaria food excursion around northern Spain. After an exhausting day of visiting farms and producers, Iker took us on a legendary pintxos (aka tapas) crawl around his hometown to revive our spirits. The beautiful thing about a night of eating pintxos is that you can hit a ton of different places, try dozens of unique bites, and select

192 | FLAVORS MAGAZINE

Our night began at Bar Sport where we fell in love with “pintxo de foie.” Who would have thought that warm oozing foie gras on crunchy oval-shaped bread could taste so good? Although rich beyond imagination, it didn’t stop me from inhaling three of them. While bothered by thinking that I had just eaten the best food of the night on our first stop, optimism prevailed, and the adventure continued. The highlights of the next few places included patatas bravas, padrone peppers (obviously), jamon iberico, and local fish concoctions. It wasn’t until we landed at A Fuego Negro that we found our home for the rest of the night. It was a hipster joint that was

PINTXOS ON PINTXOS RESTAURANT IN SAN SEBASTIAN

decorated with nostalgic figurines and vintage artwork. It reminded me of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and everything about it felt familiar and cool. Our first impressions were confirmed when we befriended a group of young locals wearing skinny jeans and Brooklyn snapbacks, who just so happened to be friends with Edorta, the young owner of A Fuego Negro and a rising Basque chef. After they introduced us to the superstar himself, Edorta helped us navigate the menu and recommended his favorites. His top pick was the beef sliders with catsup-infused buns and a side of a Spanish allioli sauce. Incredible, but so was everything else he brought us. Over the course of a few hours, we sampled the majority of the menu, tasted the best wines and txakoli of northern Spain, and enjoyed a convivial evening with friends, new and old. Thank you, Iker, for an unforgettable pintxo extravaganza.

ONDARROA ORtIZ Located in the Basque country, in the city of Ondarroa, nestled away on the residential street of Inaki Deuna, is the central factory of the highly acclaimed company, Ortiz. It is here, in this unassuming location, that they jar their esteemed Bonito Del Norte tuna and can their delicious anchovies. Top of their class, Ortiz continues to use traditional methods of fishing by using live bait to catch their tuna and using nets to scoop their anchovies from the Cantabrian Sea. This helps ensure top-quality product and aesthetically appealing fish for your dinner plates.

do that… Absolutely no machines, everything by hand, everything in small batches, and everything nurtured from start to finish. The anchovies were eventually washed, salted, and canned, but the impressive part was the tender loving care and attention that each one was given.

Iker arranged a private tour of their factory for the Fairway team, and aside from the initial shock of the overwhelming

ORTIZ TUNA IN OLIVE OIL

BRIDGE IN ONDARROA, SPAIN

fishy smell, it was quite an experience. We began the tour by visiting the “anchovy room.” How romantic! There, in a tiny open room were a dozen women at small tables holding little knives, furiously filleting anchovies in a rapid fire six-step process. Unfazed by visitors, the women de-boned and filleted these pinkie-long anchovies with such precision and accuracy, it was fascinating. Had they applied these skills to a keyboard, I bet they could type 300 words per minute with 100% accuracy. To understand the level of skill required to prepare these fish for canning, I was offered the opportunity to give it a go myself. Holy crap! I must have mutilated a few dozen fish before I put forth something that resembled a finished product. First you cut the head off, then you break the spine, then you take the spine out, then you smooth over the skin and remove the scales, then you do this, and then you

In a different part of the factory, we watched the process of taking enormous tunas resting on beds of ice and ultimately preparing them for life in a jar. The fish were boiled in water and sea salt, cleaned one-byone by hand, and then broken into giant hunks of meat and tossed into big plastic bins. Each bin was sent to a different room, where workers used larger and sharper knives to meticulously sculpt the tuna into pieces perfectly sized to fit inside the jars. The scraps and broken pieces were thrown into another bin and used for something else. The fresh, warm tuna was delectable, and it didn’t taste fishy at all. The thought of putting mayonnaise anywhere near the finished product would be a sin, and unnecessary given the flavor profile of Ortiz’s Bonita Del Norte. We were so proud of this experience and were so impressed by their product that we brought in shippers of the Bonito del Norte to offer to our customers high-quality product at a discounted price. Not to mention, some of the exact product we saw getting packed into jars while we visited in April is likely being sold in our stores RIGHT NOW! What a trip…and to end the factory tour, the wonderful people of Ortiz treated us to a beautiful lunch at Asador Erretegi, a neighborhood joint that cooks up the catch of the day. Just outstanding! -f

La Boqueria

>> The Place of the Mouth by Vincent Olivieri

F

rom the moment I stepped foot off the plane, I knew something was different. The smell in the air, the look on the faces, the smiles, and the “in shape” people flooding the streets drew me to one conclusion: It must be the food. Of course it’s the food. They say we are what we eat, so based on the positive vibes, I had to assume there was some good food around me. I realized I was on the path to discovery when I walked into La Boqueria. La Boqueria loosely translates into “the place of the mouth” —the perfect name for the perfect place. La Boqueria is a large public market in the Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, and one of the city’s foremost tourist landmarks. Perhaps my love for all things ham had something to do with my overwhelming feeling of joy when I entered La Boqueria. I mean, ham was everywhere, or should I say, jamon. Hanging from above, out on display, in books (yes, in books, I literally bought a book that had pages of cryovaced ham), in little cups, in people’s hands, some even found its way into my pocket. The all-knowing Steve Jenkins once told me Iberico Bellota was the most delicious, most delectable

hams on the planet. The black-hooved pig that only eats acorns is widely known throughout all of Spain. We carry it here in the States, but do not pay the same homage to it as the Spanish do. In America, everyone is looking for a bargain; a great deal if you will. That bargain mentality might be the reason that this pristine ham is constantly overlooked in the States because of its pricey reputation. That bargain mentality might also be the reason that Americans have truly lost touch with what food really is. Food is existence. We have thrown quality out in exchange for a reasonable rate. Thankfully, the rest of the world has not yet gone down that route. Thankfully, Fairway Market stays in touch

I could go on about ham all day, but La Boqueria had many other bountiful pleasures that need to be brought up. The seafood…oh, the seafood. One of our greatest fish mongers told me a long time ago that fish shouldn’t smell like fish; imagine the face I made. He then went on to explain that fresh fish shouldn’t smell like fish. It was old, somewhat rotting fish that picks up that famous fishy odor. Needless to say, I was surrounded by every type of once-living organism in the ocean and could still smell the sweet aroma of the fresh produce just footsteps away. The juices, the fruits, the colors, the varieties were almost as overwhelming as the ham. As unbelievable as it may sound, it was true. Every vendor held an insurmountable amount of pride for the food they were selling. You could see it in the way they set their displays, you could taste it in the juice, and you could smell it in the air that something was really right here. Having almost 6 meals a day in this wonderful food mecca, my group had to literally wake me up from the dream that I was having and transplant me from Barcelona to San Sebastian. La Boqueria had me mesmerized and, little did I know, I was off to a place that some would say was even better. After a six-hour car ride through the beautiful scenery of the mountains and countryside, we arrived in San Sebastian. Filled with history, beauty, and small dishes, I knew that it wouldn’t take a long time for me to fall in love with this ancient Spanish city. I am not a bar hopper; I do not enjoy going out to drink with friends as most people do. Alcohol works up a raging hunger inside of me for food. Call it a need for instant gratification, but when I “get my drink on,” I almost immediately crave food. In the States, the food offered while drinking is usually limited to burgers, French fries, chicken fingers, pizza, and all other greasy foods; foods that can cause a napkin to appear invisible, if a small morsel finds its way to the paper. The San Sabastian bar scene could be known as the antithesis of the American bar scene. Need an example? I’ve got plenty. Our guide walked us into to a “Sports Bar” that was known to have the best foie gras in the region. I laughed. I said, “Really?!?! Foie gras in a sports bar?” I was quickly shut up once that warm, buttery succulent piece of duck liver entered my palate. Starting with a sear and ending up on a crostini, that piece of foie gras might have been the

best I’ve ever had. Don’t get me wrong, it might have been the atmosphere; it might have been the fact that I’d had some wine; it might also be because it was served faster than some hamburgers at a fast-food chain, and it might have been all of the above. All I know is that when we ventured on to our next bar in a hopping fashion, I said a silent “goodbye” and almost shed a tear for that delicious duck liver that I knew I would not see again anytime soon. After going from bar to bar trying almost all the tapas I could see out on display, we went to sleep with our bellies full of booze and food. Good food, fancy food, quick food, all created to be served so small that one hand could hold the plate while the other held a drink. After a long night of boozing and eating, I was off to my first Calcotada. I found out quickly that the Spanish appreciate their drinking as much as they do their food. I was given a bib and some red wine for breakfast. I thought “why the bib?” but I quickly realized that I was at a freaking party! An onion party! The Catalonians have an annual event where they celebrate the harvest of the Calcot. Calcots

are pretty much what would happen if you mix a scallion with a leek. You take them, you fire-grill them. You burn them ‘till they’re charred up and somewhat ashy. You then wrap them in newspapers, or anything else you have that will seal in the hot residual heat; you want to steam them to a soft state. You look down at the table and realize that you have a big bowl of Romesco sauce (roasted peppers, tomatoes, garlic, toasted almonds, parsley, smoked paprika, olive oil, sherry vinegar, all blended together) in front of you. You then realize why you’re wearing a bib,

FAIRWAYMARKET.COM | 197


La Boqueria (continued...) and that something amazing is about to happen. You pick up a burnt Calcot, you remove its burnt, ashy outer

layer, you look at your fingers and realize what a mess you’re about to make. You expose the Calcot from its burnt exterior and reveal all of its green and white beauty. You then dip the Calcot in the Romesco, hold it above your head, and slowly devour it in a way quite similar to the way you would picture royalty enjoying some plump, delicious grapes. That is exactly how I felt, like royalty. You know sometimes you get dirty at a party? That’s where the bib came in. I looked down and saw spots of sauce and burnt onion skin all over myself. I then looked up a saw a flask (porron) of wine being poured over my head in the direction of my mouth. I opened up and took it down. This experience stuck with me. The feeling of togetherness, the feeling of everyone getting together to not only celebrate food, but an ingredient: An onion, a vegetable that makes people cry, had been given its own day; a day of culture and appreciation of good food. I was sold, and brought this tradition back to the States. In Brooklyn, in a developing area known as Red Hook, there is a Fairway Market. During the summer, Mitchel London and I put together a small outdoor BBQ that we ran exclusively on the weekends. I knew it would be the perfect place to let out this Spanish secret that I learned only because I was there. I used leeks because it was the closest thing I could find. I used aluminum foil to wrap them because I couldn’t get them as soft when wrapped in newspaper. I threw them back on the fire after they

were wrapped to ensure the right texture. I made fresh Romesco every Saturday to have something for the leeks to get dipped in. I paired it with pan tomate (toasted bread smeared with fresh tomatoes). I ran it every weekend with much success and a lot of personal disappointment. People were ordering it for the sole reason that it was one of the only vegetarian items on the menu. They were pronouncing it wrong. They wouldn’t wear the bib. They didn’t peel the outer layer off like I had asked them to. It almost felt like I had wrongfully exploited a tradition that should have stayed in Spain. The feeling was missing. The love for food was not expressed by all my customers. The feeling started to feel like an operation, instead of an appreciation until…I had a group of people approach me. Their accent was familiar. They huddled in front of my sign. They looked amazed and excited. I engaged them in conversation. They were shocked that I knew their secret. They told me how disappointed they were that they had just eaten something else. They left, but shortly returned in a larger group. They came right back to me and ordered four portions of the Calcots. I quickly assembled their plates and ran to their table. They were already wearing their bibs before I could put their burnt onions on the table. I dropped the food, said enjoy in Spanish and walked away. I did not travel far. I hid behind the large extinct rail car that has become a famous staple of Fairway Red Hook. I watched in delight as they made a mess, laughed, and enjoyed good food. It made it all worth it for me. That was all it took: The expressed love for food. I have made it my personal mission to bring back that love for food. They say we are what we eat, so let’s eat well. Let’s enjoy food in its natural state. Let’s enjoy the people around us sharing the good food. Lastly, LET’S EAT! -f

La Catedral de Navarra

M

agic. That is the only way to describe our visit to La Catedral de Navarra, producer of exquisite produce in the Basque country. There has never been more attention paid to the care and growing of vegetables; the distinguishing factors are the rich soil and the temperament of the weather in Navarra. These factors extract the most exacting flavors in their gorgeous jars of tomatoes, Piquillo peppers, habitas (baby white beans), and giant spears of pristine white asparagus.

Our adventures took the Fairway Specialty Team into the fields where the albino stalks of white asparagus grow under cover of darkness. Fascinatingly, the fields are covered with black plastic sheeting so the sun does not touch the virginal stalks, thus preserving their white color. They are so sensitive that the slightest exposure to sunlight begins to turn the asparagus purple. For this reason, the asparagus is farmed and cultivated only at night, in total darkness. The midnight harvests are something to see. Taken from the ground spear by spear with a dowel by a farmer

wearing a headlamp, this is painstaking work. Cayo, the third-generation owner and keeper of La Catedral, has handled his family’s legacy with love, care, and an abundance of pride. Cayo is carrying forth the legacy of the Sainz family, which has presided over these vast farmlands for over 70 years. Cayo opened a part of the field during the day for our edification, and handed us all tools to get busy. Off we set into the rows of perfectly shielded asparagus, uncovering a small patch at a time, and each taking a turn extracting gargantuan asparagus from the fragrant soil of Navarra. If the joy of our accomplishments were not enough, Cayo took us to taste the fruits of our labors. Within an hour of our harvest, we sat to enjoy glorious plates of tomatoes, habitas, peppers, and our hand-picked white asparagus, alongside delicious local Arbequina Olive Oil, anchovies, and crusty bread. Yes, these are special products. You will fall in love with them the minute you taste them. Que magnifica! -f

The judges were Mitchel London, the Chef de Cuisine of Fairway Market and definitely the Simon Cowell-esque character in the group; Madison Cowan, British chef you may know as the first Grand Champion of Chopped who is also an author and avid philanthropist; and the lovely Danielle Brooks who plays Taystee in the hit show Orange is the New Black.

After everyone arrived, Team One got to rapidly shopping around Fairway and hustling in the kitchen as they had only 30 minutes to prepare their food for the judges. As the timer indicated times-up, the judges took their places and gave their opinions without revealing what they noted on their score cards. Same routine for Team Two, who actually went a little over the 30-minute mark, but was given as a courtesy as their main dish was chicken that needed cooking a little longer.
