Thank you All…yesterday was simply amazing!

Last night I went to bed feeling incredibly blessed and proud of my amazing team of family and friends who successfully pulled off another massive production of making over 100 pounds of “Homemade St. Joseph Pasta.” All 110 lbs of Semolina flour was lovingly handcrafted into delicate cuts of fettuccini! Just prior to production yesterday everyone gathered around my kitchens island for a short tutorial of the pasta making process. It’s vital to keep the flow of production running smoothly. Each step of the production must be done correctly to insure the consistency of a high quality final product.   Every job starting with dough maker’s assistants to dough runners and pasta hangers were performed with precision! Yesterday’s pasta event was an amazing team effort from start to finish. Additional thanks to my husband St. Barry for his support and behind scene list of chores, my twins Amanda and BJ and awesome mother Pat, and brother Joey for their support and help setting up for yesterday and assistance in production, blogging, and live Streaming! Many thanks to my dear friends and owners of Nobel Electric, Steve and Dee Nobel, and Rick Moore and  Donna Ardizzoni, owners of Circle Consultants, for their assistance in getting our crashed internet back up and working for the live stream. Special thanks to my incredibly talented Creative director James Eves at Cape Ann Giclee for designing the first ever Sista Felicia Apparel! The “Sista Felicia Kitchen” aprons were perfectly “Felicitized! Also a huge shout out and big thank you to GMG Contributor and friend Marty Luster for spending the afternoon photographing yesterday’s event for cookbook #3. Special thanks and to Erich Archer, Executive Director at Cape Ann TV  and his photographer George for filing a portion of yesterday to air on Cape Ann TV soon!

Gourmet Ramp Fries with Cayenne Dipping Sauce

 

PrintIMG_9367Gourmet Ramp Fries

 This recipe was created for my son BJ who loves Onion Rings and  French Fries!  My mission to make this weeks dinners extra tasty, by developing new recipes using the fresh Ramps I purchased at Wilson Farms last week has been successful.  Today’s Gourmet Ramp Fries recipe became BJ ‘s new favorite side dish,  Monday evening.   While preparing Muddica Steak cutlets’ for frying Monday night, I decided to test-fry a small batch of Ramps using the egg wash & Sicilian Breadcrumb (Muddica) left overs. The results were amazing!  The garlic/onion/leek flavors of the tender Spring Ramps lightly coated and fried in Sicilian Breadcrumbs were OUTSTANDING!!!  If you are a lover of Onion Rings and French Fries this recipe brings the beloved everyday Onion Ring and French Fry side dish to a new gourmet level.
