Perfect Pairing: Personalized Memory Cookbooks
You never need to buy, nor will you want to buy, store-bought dips after making this Green Herb Dip. High praise, I know. This fresh dip was another addition to the menu for the outdoor concert at Ravinia. The Perfect Pairing for this recipe is very close to my heart. I think any cook will love this idea, but more on that later.
I found the recipe in my favorite chef’s cookbook, Barefoot Contessa at Home. Ina Garten, or The Barefoot Contessa, is something else. Her recipes are classic, use great ingredients and are tried and true. I even find myself using her lingo…. “How easy was that?”. I do question her instruction of always using the “nice” or “good” version of something. I am totally on board with using a “nice” olive oil or a “good” balsamic vinegar but sometimes I think a jar of cinnamon is a jar of cinnamon. Now, if I am ever in Saigon I may pick up some very special Saigon cinnamon and it could change my life.
