easy pleasing* entertaining should be easy & effortless. we say keep it simple-- and always knock their socks off. Smashed White Bean & Arugula Pesto
Simple and flavorful. Our white bean smash is flavored with a hint of sweet roasted garlic and given a zip with fresh lemon zest. It’s the hint of lemon that compliments our peppery Arugula pesto that is made with both toasted walnuts and raw pine nuts. You won’t find cheese here so this is perfect for your vegan and vegetarian guests
There is nothing worse than throwing a fabulous party and you’re the one stuck in the kitchen. We think that part of being effortlessly chic is the ability to see to the details but also be part of the fun. Entertaining should be easy and effortless--and should always knock their socks off. We never serve more than three things (something we learned from the Barefoot Contessa-Now how bad could that be!) and we like to concentrate on good, simple, quality ingredients. Easy to prepare and with endless possibilities, flat breads can be a hostess’ best friend. Dress them up as with our cheese and cracked pepper pears or dress them down with a simple dose of fleur de sel and chopped rosemary. Either way, you can not go wrong. Plus with cooking times of about only 8-10 minutes you can make them ahead of time and pop them in the oven as you guest arrive and still attend your own party. You can try your hand at our super simple dough or substitute a quality pizza dough in a pinch. After all, this is supposed to be easy! Our three recipes leave you with all your bases covered-- from the meat lovers to the vegans. No matter who your guests are we are certain that they will leave both satisfied and impressed.
