Harvest Vegetable Pie

Harvest Vegetable Pie

Harvest Vegetable Pie

Harvest Vegetable Pie has great vegetable taste because it hasn’t a sauce; its intense flavors come from the very finely sliced vegetables layered with a mixture of extra-virgin olive oil, finely diced red onion and fresh herbs encased in a no-fail goat or cream cheese crust. This pie is easy to make, the only specialized equipment you need is either a food-processor with a fine-slice blade, a mandolin, a box grater with a slice side, or a very sharp knife and a steady hand. This pie makes a great lunch or light dinner paired with soup and salad.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
