Please Your Palate with Pasta

  • 1          pound prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2       cup julienne carrots
  • 1/2       cup julienne celery
  • 1/2       cup green onions, sliced diagonally
  • 3          cloves garlic, minced
  • 2          tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2       cup water
  • 1/4       cup honey
  • 4          teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1          teaspoon salt

  3. Serve over pasta.

A Winning Combination

Put a fresh twist on farm-to-table goodness by pairing two vine-ripened garden treasures: heirloom tomatoes and crisp, refreshing white wine. Northern California’s Sonoma County is known for some of the nation’s finest vineyards. It’s also a culinary destination with a wide range of farms and artisan food purveyors. Inspired by the annual Kendall-Jackson Heirloom Tomato Festival, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, this salad recipe is a twist on classic favorite, delighting the palate by pairing farm-fresh tomatoes with the perfect wine.

Heirloom Tomato and Mozzarella Salad
Servings: 4

  • 2 1/2    pounds heirloom tomatoes, mixed varieties
  • 1/4       cup good quality extra-virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4       cup micro basil (or 1 dozen basil leaves, sliced and torn), divided
  • 2          large balls fresh mozzarella, cut into wedges
  • flaked sea salt
  1. Slice tomatoes into 3/4- to 1-inch thick wedges. In large bowl, add tomatoes, olive oil, kosher salt, pepper and half the basil. Toss and allow to marinate 2 minutes. Arrange tomatoes and mozzarella on serving plate, alternating each. Pour marinating liquid over tomatoes and mozzarella. Garnish with remaining basil and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.

Serve with Kendall-Jackson Grand Reserve Chardonnay. Chardonnay’s flavors of orchard fruit complement the sweetness of late summer tomatoes.

Pizza with a Sweet Twist

This non-traditional take on pizza will have your taste buds exploding with savory goat cheese and strawberries marinated in a white balsamic vinaigrette. California strawberries, which – despite their sweet taste – boast just 7 grams of sugar and provide 140 percent of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C per cup, are hand-picked to ensure only the highest quality berries are harvested. Research has also shown this farm-to-table superfruit to be an effective way to help prevent and manage Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes.

Strawberry and Goat Cheese Pizza
Recipe courtesy of the California Strawberry Commission
Servings: 8 (1/2 pizza each)

  • 1/2       ounce active dry yeast
  • 1          tablespoon sugar
  • 3-4       cups all-purpose flour
  • 2          teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1          tablespoon olive oil
  • 3          tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 3          tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4       cup aged balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2       cup (4 ounces) softened goat cheese
  • 4          cups fresh California strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1/4       cup (2 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
  • coarsely ground black pepper
  • baby arugula
  • frisee
  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. To make pizza dough: In mixer bowl, sprinkle yeast and sugar over 1 cup warm water; let stand until foamy. Add 3 cups flour, salt and olive oil; mix with dough hook until stretchy and no longer sticky, adding more flour if necessary. Divide dough into four equal portions. Refrigerate, covered, until needed.
  3. To make white balsamic vinaigrette: In small nonreactive saucepan, simmer white balsamic vinegar until reduced to 1 1/2 tablespoons. Whisk in extra-virgin olive oil.
  4. To make aged balsamic reduction: In small nonreactive saucepan, simmer aged balsamic vinegar until reduced to about 4 teaspoons.
  5. On lightly floured surface, roll each piece of pizza dough into 8-inch circle. Place on baking sheet; bake 10 minutes, or until firm and slightly brown. Spread softened goat cheese on pizzas, leaving 1/2-inch border.
  6. Toss strawberries with white balsamic vinaigrette; arrange strawberries evenly on goat cheese. Bake 10 minutes more. Remove from oven; scatter crumbled goat cheese on top.
  7. Drizzle with aged balsamic reduction; sprinkle with black pepper. Garnish pizzas with leaves of arugula and frisee.
