From Our Table To Yours: Recipe Round Up



Since we hope that you're all safely spending time at home, we wanted to offer a way for us all to stay connected: via recipe sharing! Think of this as "cookbook club meets home ec class meets a seriously big group chat."


We've picked three of our favorite recipes from the Davines cookbook, which were lovingly created and shared by members of our community, along with additional recipes from people who inspire us. They're all simple, delicious dishes that we hope will keep you well fed and happy — so let's see what's on the menu:


Chowder recipe Davines North America

Sweet Potato, Corn and Kale Chowder

Created by Alexa Arnold, an event planner for a food-based nonprofit, this hearty chowder takes advantage of the long pantry life of sweet potatoes. Alexa summarizes its appeal best: "Throughout fall and winter, soup is on my mind, and this chowder ispure comfort: sweet enough to remind you of summer, but grounded by thehardiness of the sweet potatoes and kale.”

Spiced Cauliflower Couscous with Peas, Radishes, Feta and Mint

If I had to describe my ideal workweek lunch, it would probably be this dish. Light yet filling enough to satisfy, this cauliflower couscous and veggie mix is topped with a fresh-made lemon and honey mustard dressing. The fried egg is an optional final addition, but who can say no to a kick of protein and savory goodness?

Mexican Sopa de Lima

We have hairstylist Lindsey Nicole to thank for bringing this delicious soup into our lives: “I was inspired to make sopa de lima after coming back from Mexico. The food there is bold yet fresh, spicy yet balanced. Homemade broth is truly medicinal— combined with vegetables, chicken, citrus, spice and everything else nice, it’s perfection.”




Jose Andres recipe tortilla de patata

Tortilla de Patata — by Jose Andres

Aside from being the owner of one of my favorite casual restaurants, Spanish Diner, Jose Andres is a talented chef also known for his incredible humanitarian actions. Most recently, his nonprofit charity World Central Kitchen has been distributing hot, fresh meals to low-income neighborhoods — nearly 100,000 a day — as a direct response to the COVID-19 outbreak. So much like my admiration for Chef Andres, my reasoning for sharing his recipe for tortilla de patata is twofold: to spread the word of his incredible actions, and because this classic Spanish Diner recipe is insanely comforting and relatively easy (and cost effective) to make.

Cacio e Pepe — by Yola Mezcal

We've been fans of Yola Mezcal for a while, and it's not hard to see why: owned and operated by a talented team of women, they proudly bottle their handcrafted mezcal  following a traditional method that's over 300 years old. "From a working class drink in Oaxaca, it became our proud Mexican tradition." Recently in their newsletter, the team shared a delicious looking recipe for cacio e pepe that I wanted to pass on — but full credit goes to the amazing women of Yola!



We hope these recipes inspire you to get cooking and try something new! And be sure to stay tuned — we'll be adding new tasty things for you to try as inspiration strikes... be sure to let us know in the comments if you whip any of these up.
