Les Petits Chefs make cavatelli with fresh tomato sauce with Massimo Bruno

Massimo Bruno is something of a legend in the Petits Chefs kitchen science lab.  I first met Massimo at his “Journey to Puglia” in Toronto and  I’ve even managed to score two of my favourite recipes off the man himself – popette d’uova and gnudi.

French Fridays with Dorie: Warm scallop salad with corn, nectarines and basil

Hmmmm….. we were all a little dubious of this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe (Warm Scallop Salad with Corn, Nectarines and Basil, p 320-321).  I mean, all the components on their own are wonderful but together they sounded odd.
