The Power of the Piquillo
April 27, 2010 § 1 Comment
My goodness, the kitchen smelled good today. Garlic, smoked paprika, frying pork…what could be better? First thing in the morning we roasted tomatoes, bread and garlic for the sauce. We were transported to Catalonia, on the wings of sausage and Romesco sauce. Piquillo peppers are a main ingredient in Romesco, and when I opened our can of peppers I gasped. A Piquillo Pepper Packer had arranged the peppers carefully, like a blooming flower. How pretty.
The chorizo was full of flavor and a fabulous match to the Romesco sauce.
We served lovely little fingerling potatoes from Full Circle Farm with the Romesco, and browned zucchini alongside. Tonight at dinner my girls scarfed the zucchini. How gratifying. I scarfed the whole lot. Hope you enjoyed it, too!
