Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Radicchio Feta and Date Salad

The bitter radicchio, with the salty feta, and sweet dates, makes for a complex salad that comes together quickly for dinner any night of the week. In a large bowl, combine the radicchio with some chopped pitted dates, sliced cucumber, finely chopped mint, and crumbled feta. When you’re ready to serve, drizzle with your best olive oil, fresh lemon juice, and a splash of red wine vinegar. Salt and pepper to taste.

To make it a bit more special, for a Valentine’s dinner for example, caramelize the dates in a hot pan and serve them over the top.
