Just back from another class at Whole Foods... with my favorite teacher Chef Dan Maggipinto. Seriously, we try very hard not to miss one of his classes.
My favorite recipe this session was Swiss chard with pine nuts and raisin... red wine soaked raisins!
Here's a little tiny bit of it! Chef Dan had me plating so I didn't have time to shot photos of the finished dish in all its glory. This is the very last serving... mine. (Those yummy pine nuts really sank down to the bottom of the pan!)
When you are buying greens... any greens... remember they shrink down hugely. All those greens you see, plus what is in the bowl in the top right corner, just barely filled the pot in the bottom left corner when they were all wilted down. And you will lose a lot when you pull the stems off.
So buy a lot!
And if you are every coming to the Nashville area, be sure to make a reservation at Caffe Nona for a wonderful Italian meal!!
