Stale Bread, Panzanella, Dutch Tomatoes and the EU

Mar 31, 2013

I was writing about food waste and bread storage the other day and mentioned that many traditional recipes call for stale bread — including Panzanella.

If each ingredient is great, then the dish is great; it’s only as good as the weakest links,... Read More

To quote the Governor in Mel Brooks’s classic “Blazing Saddles”, it been nothing but work, work, work. haha.
