Apples are so versatile that while they are great to eat raw, they also make a delicious addition to baked goods, salads, sauces or stews. Apple recipes make the most of apples when they are in season. Apples come in so many colors, shapes, and sizes. Their flavor can range from crisp and sour to soft and sweet. The beauty of the apple is that its taste will change from year to year depending on the growing conditions. In fact, flavor can vary from apple tree to apple tree and even from orchard to orchard. So whenever possible buy your apples from a local orchard or farmer’s market and remember what Horace once said “Whatever variety of apple you eat, to get the best make sure to buy only those picked by the light of the waning moon”.

Pasta is a type of food made from flour, water, and sometimes eggs, which is mixed, kneaded and formed into various shapes, and boiled prior to consumption. While the name comes from Italy, pasta is very popular all over the world. The English word pasta generally refers to noodles and other food products made from a flour and water paste, often including egg and salt.
There are two major classifications: pasta fresca (fresh) and pasta secca (dried). From here, there are more than 400 unique types of pasta: sheets, strips, long strands, cylinders, unique shapes, flavors, and many other local varieties. There are more names for pasta than the mind can retain, yet all are made from the same basic ingredients — 100% durum wheat and water with a specific percentage of acidity and humidity under Italian law. Varying from the basics, light flavors and colors can be added to pasta with egg yolk, spinach, tomato paste, chocolate, and even squid ink. Each of these pastas creates its own unique dining experience when properly served. Another crucial aspect of the experience is pasta being married with an appropriate, complimentary sauce. The individual shape and texture given to pasta can be somewhat of a code in determining the proper sauce. A simple rule of thumb would be as follows: thick pasta = thick sauce, light pasta = light sauce.
It’s fast, easy and everyone loves it – little wonder that pasta is one of the most popular dishes in the world. Quick, tasty and filling – pasta is perfect for midweek meals.
