FUN AND FEARLESS IN BEANTOWN’S PUMPKIN AND CHILPOTLE TURKEY CALZONE

December 1, 2010


“Last week, I felt like I was in a cooking rut.  I rummaged through my freezer and I found a tin of Pumpkin Chilpotle Pesto that I purchased from Pestos with Panache at the Boston Food Truck Festival this past summer.  I also found a package of lean ground turkey in the freezer.  Using these two ingredients as a base, I decided to make a pumpkin and chilpotle turkey calzone.  I de-thawed the ground turkey and the tin of pesto in the fridge.  I then gathered up my ingredients – a jalapeno pepper, a log of goat cheese, one medium-sized onion and pizza dough.”


PESTOS WITH PANACHE PROVES PESTO CAN BE FASHIONABLE

November 17, 2010

“My latest sample was sent from the lovely Lauren. (I could just tell she was lovely, plus her picture didn’t hurt). She has a pesto company, Pestos With Panache and she’s not kidding with that name – she makes some really interesting flavors, like Prosciutto & Smoked Almond Pesto and Succulent Strawberry Pesto.


And then there’s the packaging. It’s so attractive. The pesto comes in cans with modern, sleek-looking labels and you just feel that if you use this pesto, you too will be modern and sleek. (We can always dream.)

Lauren sent me a couple to try and, boy, am I glad she did.”

GOOD COOK DORIS CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF PESTOS WITH PANACHE

October 26, 2010

 

“From the freezer I pulled out at tin of Pestos with Panache’s Succulent Strawberry Pesto. I’ve enjoyed corresponding online with the pesto maker, Lauren, and had a chance to meet her in person at the SoWa Market earlier this summer. The strawberry pesto isn’t sweet – it’s a fabulous traditional pesto with the addition of bright red strawberries”

A few weeks ago I was a lucky winner of some delicious pesto courtesy of one of my favorite food bloggers, Alicia at The Clean Plate Club Blog. Lauren from Pestos with Panache was nice enough to let me pick my choice of the tasty flavors to try. I’ve been really into spicy chocolate recently, so I chose the Decadent Dark Chocolate & Ancho Chili Pesto. According to their website:

‘Decadent Dark Chocolate & Ancho Chile Pesto marries some of the New World’s flavors—70% dark chocolate, ancho chilies, clove and vanilla—with the Old World’s fresh basil Genovese pesto. Hovering in the background is just a touch of smoky cumin to form a truly complex flavor.’”

BROOKLYN EXPOSED DINES IN WITH PESTOS WITH PANACHE

October 26, 2010

“Pesto is an Italian sauce derived from the word “peste” meaning to crush—referring to the sauce’s crushed herbs and garlic. Traditionally mixed with a mortar and pestle, pesto usually consists of basil, garlic, salt, olive oil, cheese and pine nuts. While pesto is most often associated with pasta dishes, pesto can also be added to sandwiches, potatoes, or on meats like beef and fish.

If you are a pesto fan, you’ll enjoy a great pesto find – Pestos With Panache by Lauren.  Lauren has created six pesto varieties that come packaged in frozen cans to maintain freshness.  Flavors include: “Fabulous Fig & Gorgonzola,” “Decadent Dark Chocolate & Ancho Chile,” “Pumpkin Chipotle,” “Prosciutto and Smoked Almond,” “Bangin’ Blueberry,” and “Succulent Strawberry.” Lauren’s website is full of recipes to try.”
