by in Drinks, In Season, June 9th, 2017

The New FroseYou know those “rules” about not wearing white pants after Labor Day and waiting 30 minutes after eating to swim? Yeah, we tend to avoid those rules. The same goes for rosé wine. Yes, it’s definitely more enjoyable to sip this pink wine in the summer, while sunning ourselves on a patio somewhere, but to be honest, we’ve been known to drink rosé on the couch in the winter every once in a while too. But now that summer it actually is summer (well, almost) and we’ll be finding ourselves on a lot more patios in the coming days, we’re moving into an all-rosé-all-the-time phases. Beyond popping the cork on a cool, crisp bottle and drinking rosé straight-up, we plan to celebrate tomorrow’s National Rosé Day holiday and all our summer sun sessions with these four pink eats and drinks.

The Non-Basil Pesto Recipe You Need to Try

by in Recipes, Shows, September 3rd, 2016

Non-Basil PestoBright, light and full of bold flavor, traditional pesto is a hallmark of the summer season, mainly thanks to the vibrant fresh basil that gives the sauce its famed green hue. But believe it or not, pesto doesn’t have to be all about the basil. In fact, you can make this standard puree with nearly any greens you happen to have on hand.

On this morning’s all-new episode of The Kitchen, the co-hosts checked off items from their summer bucket list and introduced simple ways to savor the tastes of the season, including a five-minute Non-Basil Pesto recipe. It’s easily customizable to whatever greens are available, and it yields craveable results every time. Geoffrey Zakarian starts with a flavorful blend of bold garlic and walnuts for subtle crunch then looks to the greens. He chooses a mix of arugula, kale and mint, but he also suggests fresh herbs and spinach, among other picks. Whirl them in the food processor with the garlic and nuts, then boost the richness by adding Parmesan and a hefty glug of olive oil for smoothness. Perhaps best of all is that this mixture keeps well in the fridge or freezer, so you can hang onto it for later.
