March 28, 2012Puff Pastry Asparagus Tart (10:32)
PCC Chef Lynne Vea says, "This tart is the perfect way to usher in spring! The jade green asparagus cook up gold tinged and tender, nestled in their bed of flaky pastry and creamy goat cheese. A spark of prosciutto and fresh thyme leaves finish the presentation beautifully!"

There are numerous variations on the theme of good ol’ banana cream pie. You certainly can use a prebaked pastry crust, perhaps sprinkled with crushed brittle or chopped peanuts, or your favorite cookie-crumb-style crust. You can make the filling from scratch or use an excellent vanilla pudding mix. The key is to create a decadent, cool, silky environment for really great organic bananas.
This recipe from my grandmother’s ever-bountiful kitchen really ups the wow factor with the addition of peanut brittle or roasted peanuts in the crust and as a garnish, and a smoky bourbon caramel sauce for drizzling each slice. Yum!

I adore shrimp tacos! The flavors are fresh, vibrant and, if you choose, fiery. My version takes advantage of easy yet stellar ingredients, which we do very well here at PCC: sweet, bright American shrimp; whole coriander; colorful organic produce; and locally milled masa harina (yellow corn flour) for traditional, steaming-hot tortillas. Succulent, healthy and beautiful! Hmmm, what could be better than that?
February 14, 2012Succulent Cheese Fondue (07:42)
Whether you are creating a romantic environment for two or a festive party for a group, this recipe comes together in a flash and never fails to please! To simplify the process even further, you may make the fondue ahead of time, store it in the fridge and heat it gently just before serving. For maximum impact, offer a mix of tart-sweet apples, creamy potatoes and bright veggies in addition to the quintessential artisanal bread!

Our PCC Deli Black Bean Hummus is made from scratch using delicious ingredients like healthy black beans, sesame tahini, tamari and balsamic vinegar. The flavor is complex and zesty and makes the perfect base for these incredibly simple and nutrient-rich pizzas.
The combination of spicy chèvre and nutty Manchego is perfect with the caramelized shallots and the sweet bits of dried mango. Our Vicolo pizza crusts were developed in the kitchen of a neighborhood restaurant in San Francisco by the same name and are still made to traditional standards.
