Oysters take on the flavor of the water where they’re grown? East Coast oysters tend to be saltier and brinier while West Coast oysters tend to be a little sweeter.
In keeping with our fast meal ideas this busy holiday weekend we wanted to remind seafood fans that we also carry a wide variety of side dish starters. Alessi Arborio Rice With Sun Dried Tomatoes is the perfect grain for risotto because its texture and cooking properties allow it to retain firmness throughout preparation. The sun dried tomatoes used in this product are from the farmlands of sunny Italy. Handpicked while juicy, red and fragrantly ripe they are then split in half, salted and laid out on large wooden flats to dry in the sun. This has been a traditional yet popular dish throughout northern Italy. This dish is a wonderful accompaniment to many seafood dishes. Enjoy!
