Ingredients
12-16 oz Rigatoni (De Cecco preferred)
28 oz (one can) San Marzano tomatoes (whole)
1 large or 2 medium onions
4-5 cloves garlic sliced thin
High quality extra virgin olive oil
½ - 1 tsp red pepper flakes
8 oz clam juice
Fresh Chilean Sea Bass (1lb should serve about 4)
Flat leaf parsley
Sea salt / possibly truffle salt
Fresh pepper
Parmigiano-reggiano

Preparation
To begin boil a pot of water with some sea salt. When the water is ready, pour in the rigatoni and stir occasionally.

Next take the onion(s) and cut it in half peeling off the outer layer. Chop the onions into chunks. Then take the cloves of garlic and cut them into very thin slices. Pour a small amount of the olive oil into a pan and scoop the onions and garlic into that pan. Let them caramelize in the pan but do not brown them.

At this point, if you have not already done so, chop up your parsley and put it to the side.

Open the can of San Marzano tomatoes and pour them into a large bowl. Using your hands, begin to tear and shred the tomatoes. When finished mix it together with the onions and garlic. Once that is mixed together add in the clam juice and the red pepper flakes. Remember to stir the sauce while you move on to the fish.

While your sauce cooks, take a new pan and lightly coat it with olive oil. Take the Chilean Sea Bass and cut it into short strips about half an inch thick and lay them on a plate. Season the bass with the sea salt and the black pepper. Place the fish into the recently greased pan, and let it cook until it begins to break up.

When the rigatoni is finished, strain it and pour it into the sauce.

Using your spatula, begin to break up the fish and put it in with the rigatoni. Sprinkle the parsley from earlier over the pasta and mix it together.

Serve it into a dish and grate the fresh parmesan over your pasta. It’s ready to serve.

Ingredients
Roast beef
Potatoes (with skin)
Olive Oil
Cloves of garlic
Parsnip
Carrots
Milk
Turnip
Butter
Sea salt
Fresh pepper
Red Wine
Mashed Tomatoes
Demi-Glace

Preparation
To begin boil the potatoes with their skin in a pot. While the potatoes boil lay the raw roast beef onto a plate. Season it with a generous coating of salt and pepper on both sides. Pour some olive oil into a pan and let it warm up for the beef. When the potatoes are ready, begin to peel them.

Slowly put the meat into the pan, once it’s in do not touch it. We are only going to seer the meat to give it a little brownness to it. Add some butter to the sides of the beef and let it sit for a few minutes before you flip it.

At this point chop up some parsnip into large chunks, and lay it in with the meat.

When you have finished peeling the potatoes begin to slice them up, and place them into a bowl over the pot of boiling water you took them out from. Pour some milk into a sauce pan and let it warm up.

Take the beef out from the pan, and add in some chunks of carrots and a turnip. Pour in some red wine and toss in the cloves of garlic. Let them cook for a bit before you put the meat back in.

Start mashing the potatoes; while you mash pour in the milk and add some butter.
Once the meat is back in the pan with the vegetables add in the tomatoes and throw in two scoops of demi-glace.

Take the beef off from the stove and place it with the vegetables into the oven for an hour and forty-five minutes.

Taste the potatoes to see if they need more salt.

When the time is up take the beef out from the oven and let it rest for a while. Lay the meat on to a cutting board and lightly stick it with your knife. If the knife easily slides in and out, then the meat is done. Take the vegetables out and lay them in a ring around the outer rim of the plate. Leave the stock in the pot and begin to whisk it while adding butter, salt and some more demi-glace.

Scoop some of the potatoes into the middle of the vegetables and begin to cut the meat. Slice the meat against the grain to help soften it. Fan the meat out over the potatoes and pour the stock over the dish. The dish is now ready to be enjoyed.

Pepper
Butter
Olive oil
Diced garlic
White wine

 

Preparation
Peel your potatoes and cut them into slices. Boil them in water with salt. Once they are done begin to mash the potatoes. Spread flour on a cutting board and scoop the mashed potatoes over the flour.  Sprinkle salt, pepper and more flour over the potatoes.

Using your hands knead the flour and other seasonings into the potatoes. Add more flour and continue to knead the potatoes. Keep a layer of flour between the board and the potatoes to prevent it from sticking. Split the potatoes in half, and roll it out into a thick long strip. Cut the potatoes into little bits about an inch long. Drop one piece into a pot of boiling water with salt to test them out. When it floats to the top it is done.

Press a fork into the gnocchi making lines over the top to help them absorb the sauce. Place them into the boiling water. Once they are floating on the top, place them into a pan with olive oil and butter.

Ingredients
Chicken breast
Roman tomatoes
Chili peppers
Red onion
Avocados
Cherry tomatoes
Provolone cheese
Tortillas cup into quarters
Feta cheese
Cilantro
Oregano
Garlic powder 
Cumin
Salt
Lime
Black pepper

 

 

Preparation
Take three roman tomatoes and cut off the tops and place them into a pan. Do the same to 4 chili peppers and put them in with the tomatoes. Allow them to roast before you put them into a food processor. With the chili and tomatoes in the food processor place in some chopped up red onions, cilantro, cumin, and salt. Give it a few minutes to process. Once it is complete you have your salsa.

Cut the avocados in half and place them into a bowl, removing all but one of the pits from the bowl. Using a fork begin to mash the avocados. Use your hands to rip up a piece of feta and add in diced cilantro to the bowl. While the avocados are being mashed chop up some red onions and cut the cherry tomatoes in half, adding them to the bowl as well. Once the avocado takes on a nice smooth texture and is mixed well with the other ingredients your guacamole is complete.

You may use store bought chips, but if you choose to make your own buy some tortillas and cut them into fourths. Fry them in a pot of oil and lay them on a paper towel to let them dry. While waiting for the chips to dry, sprinkle some sea salt over them while they are still wet.

Take the chicken breast and slice each piece in half making them into two thin pieces of chicken. Season the chicken using salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oregano. Pour some olive oil in a pan and begin to sauté the chicken breast. Cook them on high; because the meat is thin it should be done quickly. After a few minutes flip them over, you don’t want the chicken to get too dark.

Pour the salsa into a pan and warm it up as you cook the chicken. Take the provolone and using your hands rip them in half.

Once the meat is done lower the heat, pour the salsa on top of the chicken, and lay the cheese on top. Once the cheese has melted everything is ready. Place the chicken on a large plate, scoop the guacamole into a large bowl, and pour the chips into a bowl. You may place some of the chips along the rim of the guacamole as decoration.

1 Large can of crushed tomatoes
Angel hair pasta
Fresh basil leaves
1 clove of garlic
Grated Parmesan cheese
Salt
Fresh Italian or French bread
Salad

 

 

Preparation
To begin your pasta primavera, boil water in a large deep pot. Pour a splash of olive oil in with the water and sprinkle in some salt.

Take a pan and pour in 1/4 cup of olive oil. Using the flat side of your knife, flatten one clove of garlic. Then chop it up and sprinkle some Parmesan over it. Use the flat side of your knife again to mince the garlic. Place the garlic into the pan with the olive oil and let it sauté before you add in the can of crushed tomatoes. Chop the basil leaves and stir it in with the sauce. Be sure to continue to stir the pan.

Once the water is boiling, place the angel hair pasta into the water and begin to stir.

Place the Italian (or French) bread in the oven to warm it up as you continue to prepare the pasta.

While the pasta cooks, stir in ½ a cup of Parmesan cheese. Once the angel hair pasta is ready pour them in with the sauce and mix it all together really well.

Serve the pasta in a large bowl. Do not cut the bread with a knife, serve it whole and have your guests break the bread with their hands. Serve olive oil either on top of the bread or on side for them to dip it into. Finally serve a nice salad on the side, and enjoy.
