Baking with olive oil may seem strange to Americans, but Mediterranean cooks have been doing it for centuries and with good reason….. Olive oil gives baked goods such as cakes, cookies, quick breads and muffins, a lovely fruity, floral flavor and light texture that butter just can’t deliver. Olive oil is healthy and will cut back on the cholesterol and saturated fat content of desserts too. Now, that doesn’t mean these brownies are super healthy or low calorie…but they are rich, moist and delicious!

I was introduced to Manouri cheese about 15 years ago and have been a fan ever since. It is made from goat or sheep's milk and is actually a by-product when making feta. Soft and creamy, it crumbles beautifully and is not as salty as feta, which is sometimes a welcome characteristic. In fact I think its lovely milky flavor helps highlight Summer vegetables perfectly.

Manchego is one of my all-time favorite cheeses. Its slightly nutty flavor complements a lot of food and pairs well with cava, rose, white or red wine really well, making it a perfect cheese selection for a cheese board. I decided to turn that cheese board upside down and make it into a salad. The result? Delicioso. Check it out here and get the recipe here.

Many years ago, I was a line cook at Mesa Grill, Bobby’s first restaurant in NYC. In the summer, as part of my daily mise en place, I would make big batches of this soup.
