Easily mistaken for alfalfa sprouts, micro-greens are created during the infancy of an edible plant.&nbsp; They usually have a wispy little stem and several small but flavor-packed leaves.&nbsp; They are very easy to grow, requiring minimal space, and they come in a wide variety.</p><p> Tue, 15 Apr 2014 02:03:50 +0000 Al Spoler & Jerry Pellegrino 11590 at http://wypr.org Spring Potatoes http://wypr.org/post/spring-potatoes <p><strong>&nbsp; April 8, 2014 - Radio Kitchen - Spring Potatoes</strong></p><p>I'm unusually skeptical about the weather this year, and I wish I could feel more confident that spring truly has arrived.&nbsp; In many ways this is like the beginning of a new year for us, with all of the springtime produce now in the pipeline.&nbsp; And one thing I can't get off my mind are those lovely little tender white potatoes that we get this time of year.</p><p> Wed, 09 Apr 2014 00:30:43 +0000 Al Spoler & Jerry Pellegrino 11298 at http://wypr.org Welcome, Spring http://wypr.org/post/welcome-spring <p><strong>April 2, 2014 - Radio Kitchen - Welcome, Spring</strong><br /><br />All right, the calendar page has turned.&nbsp; It is officially April and it is well past the turn of the seasons, so let's have us some Spring!&nbsp; The era of root vegetables, God bless 'em, is behind us, and the era of Primavera is at hand.&nbsp; And as Chef Jerry Pellegrino of Waterfront Kitchen knows, cuisines all over the world know how to celebrate the coming of Spring.</p><p> Tue, 01 Apr 2014 09:30:00 +0000 Al Spoler & Jerry Pellegrino 10809 at http://wypr.org Creatures of the Deep http://wypr.org/post/creatures-deep <p><strong>&nbsp;March 25, 2014 - Radio Kitchen - Creatures of the Deep&nbsp; &nbsp;</strong><br /><br />Last week we talked about dishes from Spain that I hoped I would encounter when I go there next October.&nbsp; This week we're going to cover some of the favorite foods of its neighbor, Portugal.&nbsp; If you go online and peruse any Porutguese restaurant menu, you will find numerous references to octopus and squid.&nbsp; And those of you who are veterans of spring break in Florida will remember another creature of the deep: conch.</p><p>Here is Jerry's favorite recipe for octopus, plus two other great recipes.<br /> Tue, 25 Mar 2014 09:30:00 +0000 Al Spoler & Jerry Pellegrino 10553 at http://wypr.org Spanish Dishes http://wypr.org/post/spanish-dishes <p><strong>March 18, 2014 - Radio Kitchen -&nbsp; Spanish Dishes</strong><br /><br />A little later this year I'm going to be going to Spain and Portugal, and in anticipation I've been looking up some recipes in my big book of Spanish cooking.&nbsp; And as Chef Jerry Pellegrino of the Waterfront Kitchen knows, there's a lot to like about Spanish cooking.</p> Tue, 18 Mar 2014 01:43:34 +0000 Al Spoler & Jerry Pellegrino 10194 at http://wypr.org Chowder with Chris Corbett http://wypr.org/post/chowder-chris-corbett <p><strong>March 11, 2014 - Radio Kitchen - Chowder with Chris Corbett</strong><br />&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<br />The question these days, of course, is will winter ever go away?&nbsp; Right now a lot of us are suffering late winter blues, and we desperately need a cure.
