Given our current non-travel situation almost anywhere in the world, here’s a recipe to get your home-cooking skills put to the challenge! One of Napa Valley’s first and most renowned wineries, Inglenook was established in 1879. Inglenook’s Estate Chef Alex Lovick crafts memorable dishes from the organically-farmed estate and culinary garden. As he’s spending time at home right now, he’s pleased to share his recipe for Scalloped Potatoes – a dish his dad used to make, and we could all use a little comfort food right now.
Hope you are healthy and staying safe during this time. Many of us are pretty much at home full-time at this point and truly making the most of the pantry staples lying around. I’ve been a fan of Starkist tuna since forever now. My go-to recipe is to make a tuna sandwich for a quick weekday lunch between work calls and when I have the time I like to indulge with tuna and potato fishcakes, or even a quick tuna onion stir fry with seasoning to savor over a bed of rice and lentils. Will share recipes for those later but if you have some StarKist tuna as a pantry staple then these quick and easy healthy recipes are great to try.
