    Grilled Panzanella Salad

    A simple recipe with a rich heritage

    The Tuscany region of Italy is famous for its simple yet flavorful cuisine. Panzanella is no exception. This classic Italian salad makes use of stale, crusty bread pan fried in olive oil and garlic—think croutons—and mixes it with delicious fresh vegetables.

    In this new twist on an old favorite, we've forgone pan frying the bread. Instead, we've chose to grill it to a nice, toasty dark brown right alongside our fresh veggies. This gives the dish a bold, roasted flavor that compliments the vegetables very nicely.

  • Seared Tuna on a Himalayan Salt Block

    It's late November, Thanksgiving is looming and the winter weather has arrived early. But those of us who love to grill will still find a way to get outside and cook up something special, even if the weather is less than ideal. With that being said, the weather does pose a challenge - the colder temps inhibit the high heat searing we all love from our grills. An easy solution? A salt block. Salt blocks are great to use any time of the year, indoors or out, but they're perfectly suited for these colder temperatures and to use on your grill. Think cast iron - the lovely black pans that last for generations and are so heavy they just sear so well. The same principle holds true with a salt block - it's so heavy, thermally speaking (and by weight, of course) that it retains heat extremely well, which in turn will allow it to sear extremely well.
