I am definitely a girl who loves #pasta! Tell me in the comments below: what was the last pasta dish you had? 🍝🍝🍝
{PS: Looking for a great pasta recipe for summer? My Roasted Eggplant + Cherry Tomato Sauce is perfect after a trip to the farm market. I usually serve it with bucatini, but you can use any pasta you like best! Get the recipe at the link in my bio. @stripedspatula}

I’ve been working on a sautéed #artichoke heart pasta salad for you! It has sun-dried tomatoes, capers, shallots…and a lemon vinaigrette that honestly still needs a little something. 😂 Hopefully, I’ll nail it down in Take 3!

I love recipe testing. It’s fun to try different ingredients, combinations, and techniques, and take notes about what works (and what doesn’t). The recipes you find on Striped Spatula are tested at least 3 times before they’re published. I always want to make sure I’m sharing the best possible final product with you. 😉

In other news, I’m having an open Q&A in my Insta Stories! Tap on my profile picture in my bio (3rd story) and ask me anything!

I’m not ready to move on from this #Fig Salad with baby arugula, goat cheese, and walnut oil vinaigrette. 🤣 In fact, I bought more #figs today and it’s going to be lunch tomorrow. (PS: Why is there no fig emoji?! Needed.)

I couldn’t resist these adorable baby #artichokes at the market! What’s your favorite #artichoke dish?
🍴🍴🍴
{PS - I grilled these until tender and served them with a lemon aioli and just a drizzle of chili oil. So good!}

{hosted 21+} Presenting the Chopin Spring Equinox, a #vodka cocktail crafted by the mixologists at Perrine at The Pierre New York for @chopinvodka! This beautiful cocktail pairs Chopin vodka with St-Germain liqueur, French and Italian aperitifs, and a splash of ginger beer. Shaken and served over flower ice, this cocktail is perfect for spring and summer entertaining.
🍸🍸🍸
{I got to enjoy this special sip last month in NYC at Chopin’s tasting event with CEO and Founder, Tad Dorda! Perrine and Chopin Vodka have graciously shared the recipe with me. Don't miss the recipe and my tasting notes from the event on my blog, LINK IN PROFILE @stripedspatula}

What did you grill this weekend? I made a batch of my Grilled Avocado Guacamole! Grilling the #avocados, red onions, and limes gives them a subtle smokiness that takes your bowl of #guac to the next level! (Plus, a little grilled lime juice squeezed over warm tortilla chips is sooooo good!)

{hosted} The name of the event was “Let Them Eat Fromage,” and did I ever! I had the pleasure of attending @frenchcheeseboard and @cheesesofeurope's 2018 cheese soiree on Sunday night in NYC. There was a 20-foot fromage buffet, champagne, and a virtual reality station that let us visit a dairy farm in France. It was such a fantastic event.

Here’s one of the heavenly cheeses I got to sample. Head over to the link in my profile to see more photos in my Facebook album!

{hosted} Last night, I had the honor to meet award-winning Master Pastry Chef, Nicola Fiasconaro (@fiasconaro_srl) at the Italian Trade Agency (@italiancrafted) in NYC. (Click up to my Insta Stories for a few pictures!) What a beautiful evening of food, friendship, and culture. Not to mention the most delicious #panettone I’ve ever tasted.
🍴🍴🍴
My hosts sent me home with Fiasconaro’s King Panettone, which we enjoyed warm this morning for breakfast. The soft, rich cake is studded with Sicilian candied orange and raisins flavored with passito wine. It’s heavenly.
🍴🍴🍴
I’ll be attending the Summer Fancy Food Show this weekend, where I’ll be discovering the best new products from around the world to share with you! I cannot wait to spend some time at the Italian Pavilion. Stay tuned to my Insta Stories from Saturday through Monday!

Are your forks ready? On the menu after this week’s fig haul at the market: #Fig Salad with Goat Cheese (chèvre), Baby Arugula, and a Walnut Oil-Honey-White Balsamic Vinaigrette. This elegant salad is perfect for savoring alfresco with a glass of something chilled (maybe a little champagne or dry Prosecco? 😉)

I really hope you wonderful people love #figs as much as I do, because fig season is here, and I can’t help myself from making all the figgy things!
💕💕💕
So, here’s what happened: I went to the market yesterday to buy ingredients for a planned recipe, and completely changed course when the fig display greeted me at the door. (Wait until you see what I made with them! Stay tuned tomorrow.) 🍴🍴🍴
Have you ever done that? Totally changed your cooking plans based on something gorgeous you found at the market?

Tonight’s question: What’s your favorite flavor of jam or fruit preserves? I ask, because you’re going to want to pull a jar out of the pantry to make these buttery, bakery-style Jam Crumble Bars. I recently made this batch with @sarabethsofficial Strawberry-Raspberry preserves (a staple in my pantry) and all that was left were crumbs!

How’s the fresh #corn situation where you live? It’ll be July before our season kicks off here in NJ (only a month to go!), but I am dreaming about buttery ears of corn, and one of my favorite recipes: Sweet Corn Succotash. It’s summer in a bowl.
