Bacon Lardons

Bacon Lardons

In this recipe video, I show you how to make bacon lardons…and bacon as you know, makes everything taste better. A lardon, is really nothing more than a fancy term for a thin, small strip of meat generally rendered down so it gets crispy and tasty. In this video, I show you how to make bacon...
Roasted Tomato Vinaigrette

Roasted Tomato Vinaigrette

Italian Meatballs

In this recipe video, I show you how to make, one of, my versions of Italian meatballs. I love a great meatball, covered in a rich tomato sauce & spaghetti, and I make these every few months. And one of the nice things about meatballs, is you can modify them pretty easily with other meats,...

Pork Sugo Pasta Sauce Recipe

Pork Sugo

In this recipe video, I show you how to make a pork sugo…and when I think of sugo, I think of the heavy, big, bold, Italian “Gravy’s” you hear referenced in mobster movies. This version of pork sugo, uses a pork shoulder that I slow roasted the day before, and then braise for hours to make the...
