A Spoonful of Summer in the City

Fresh Figs web
It’s finally starting to feel like summer in NYC.  While I’m not excited about standing on a sweltering subway platform, the sun seems to be giving the city an extra vibrancy.  But the best part about summer’s long awaited arrival ….. FIGS!  I just spied a box of figs at my local fruit stand.

That means I will be making this recipe for Prosciutto-Wrapped Figs with Pecans and Goat Cheese and my all time favorite salsa recipe made with avocado and figs.

What is your favorite summer produce? How do you put it to good use?

Is there a simple guide to what has gluten in it, I’m a chef and trying to understand what products have gluten in them is very confusing. I believe gluten is in rye, wheat and barley flour? So pasta and bread are the main sources? It seems every seach for a clear guide listing what contains gluten is a web site for recipes. I can easily make recipes without gluten if I knew a clear definition of gluten.
