Fall is finally making an appearance and has us craving all things heated. Funny how 60 degrees in April feels like summer but in September it feels like winter!
Warm up with one of these 50 panini recipes. Many start with the basic caprese recipe: Brush the inside of a split sub roll or sliced Italian bread with olive oil. Fill with 2 slices each fresh mozzarella and tomato, and a few basil leaves; season with salt and pepper. Press and cook until golden. And where better to get the mozzarella from then at Joe Tomato Mozzarella. Argentine-born, Italian raised Joe “Tomato” learned to make real mozzarella on Arthur Avenue. He has been known to make up to 1000 mozzarella balls in one day, using special wooden mozzarella paddles he designed himself. When he arrives his mozzarella is still warm.
He also sells the most delicious pest0-another panini staple. And if you don't feel like making the sandwich, grab one of his. Market Manager Natalie's dad thinks they are the best thing since sliced bread!
Something else to spread on bread...nasturtium butter. Grab some of the edible flowers from Letterbox and step up your avocado toast game with this butter!
See you at the market!
