What We’ve Been Up To..

Buffalo Chicken Arancini

The Super Bowl seems like a distant memory at this point, and our very tame Winter looks like it’s going down without a fight. We’ve already noticed some Spring produce trickling in at Russo’s (hello, peaches!) as we hopefully shift away from another Braise and root vegetable dish. But that’s not to say we haven’t been busy embracing the best of Winter Produce, new clients are popping up all over the place and it’s been a perfect opportunity to make the food we love the most. We also had a few friends over to watch the Super Bowl, which was a weird change of pace because we actually got to sit down and eat the food we made. In any event, work has kept us busy, we’ve found ourselves cooking for various families during the week, our usual classes at the BCAE, delivering meals for new moms, and dipping our toes into the wedding catering business as well. Here are two menus we were quite proud of, our Super Bowl feast at home, a private French Dinner we made for a client’s birthday last week, and a few random pictures to go along with it.
