Traditionally considered as cucina povera, or poor man’s food, the ribollita was created by servants who collected unfinished food, such as bread and vegetables, from their masters before boiling these items in water to make a meal. The origin of this dish gives rise to its name, which translates to mean ‘reboiled’ in English.
Rich and hearty, the ribollita is regarded as one of Tuscany’s most important dishes.

Piccata is an Italian word, the feminine form of the word piccato, meaning “larded”. It is also spelled picatta or pichotta. It is a translation of the French piqué (sharp, as in "piquant"), participle of piquer. When used in reference to a way of preparing food, particularly meat or fish, it means "sliced, sautéed, and served in a sauce containing lemon, butter and spices". Sicillian and Northern Italian Roots.
Traditionally, the Italians use veal (veal piccata); however, the best known dish of this sort in the US uses chicken (chicken piccata).

There are almost as many explanations for the origins of pasta puttanesca as there are ways to make it. Ostensibly a sauce invented and made by prostitutes, it was designed to lure customers with its powerful aroma. Whatever the origin, no better cold-weather pasta sauce has come down to this. Puttanesca can be made completely with ingredients from the cupboard; in fact, it can be prepared entirely without ingredients that require refrigeration, though a bit of a fresh herb at the end does help. The basis is a garlicky tomato sauce; fresh tomatoes are preferable here. This is brought to a high level of flavor by the addition of peppers, capers and olives. Red pepper flakes make things even better.

Hi my name is Tiffani. I am the pastry chef at the Land and Water Company In Carlsbad and the head chef at the Farmhouse owned by The Leichtag Foundation in Encinitas. I have been in kitchens since I was a little girl and working in restaurants since I was 12 years old. My career has led me down a really cool path. My cuisine is always local, fresh and seasonal.

Just let me know I can change anything in any way. Teaching folks how to cook is defiantly my knack I have been partaking in the art for years. I do classes often at the farmhouse. If you have any questions, comments, concerns let me know. I am here for you. Thank you so much. If you would like to see more of my path and creations. My Instagram is Chef Tiffani Tincher.
