Hamburger with scamorza cheese and mushrooms – Panini e Bruschette

At my new fast food restaurant there is NO meatless meat. BUT, you can get a burger in ground meats that are: beef, chicken, turkey, veal, or also lamb (not always lamb, but a monthly special). There are vegan patty burgers — you can ask for a chick pea burger, a butternut squash burger, an eggplant burger, a mushroom burger and a black bean burger. I’m thinking of also adding a basic Boca Soy burger. There are salads and fried vegetables and pastas there too. And very few sandwiches, like a pulled pork, a pulled chicken, a fried cod, a philly cheesesteak and also meatball subs in both the vegan class and also the non-vegan class. The vegan materials are pre-prepped and they are also assembled in their own area, so no more grill contaminations. There are other things you can get there.

I don’t know when I will open it. I hope sometime before the end of the 20s. I’d like to call it McNamara’s but that’s a pretty famous person’s name, I have already forgotten who, so it makes it a little seedy and yes, it was just to include a “Mc” on it. So I don’t know what to call it yet. Possibly, Tarquin’s, but there’s no better reason for it than antiquity. Haven’t really decided.

Stuffed figs with ricotta, honey and nuts – Treats and crêpes

Probably not a childhood favorite for childhood, I mean, I liked these — anything with figs and dates really: my good time alternative to chestnuts which I have always been excused from eating; so a grain a salt for everyone’s needs. But a great alternative to chestnuts all the same!

Pea bean soup – Soups

Just for the saying so, taccole (plural of taccola) are those flat, or even puffy not flat, green beans that have pods in them; I guess you’d call them snow pea pods, but they aren’t really the same, because they are not as sweet, but they are also not very bitter.

I can’t seem to find an English change of name for them, but they can be found under “green beans” in the store, you just have to look around the for kind that have peas in the long pods and that are flattened at birth. You can use the puffy kind, but this recipe wants the flat ones.
