Ultimate Caprese Salad

Posted by in Shared Member Recipes

Real talk: This caprese salad recipe should be made when the tomatoes are peaking-at the farmers’ market, you should be able to smell them before you see them. The moment only comes around once a year, so make the most of it (which is to say, do very little with them).

Whole Grilled Trout with Charred Corn and Black-Plum ChowChow

Posted by in Shared Member Recipes

Marked by the grill, the silver skin of a whole trout looks beautiful on the plate. If you don’t want to grill trout on the bone, it’s easy enough to find boneless butterflied trout at the fish counter. Stuff them, fold them over to look like whole fish, tie them up with twine, and then proceed to the grill. Chowchow is a Southern relish typically made with cabbage, corn, green tomatoes, and bell peppers and preserved in big batches by canning. My version is a sweet, tangy quick pickle of fresh summer corn, charred on the grill, and diced black plums.

Summer Berry Trifle

Posted by in Shared Member Recipes

Use a mix of strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries to make this a red-white-and-blue-striped creation, or use any type of berry you like-just make sure you choose the ripest, tastiest ones available. The bread will soak up all their sweet juices.
