About a week ago, we stopped into Porta Via, (Bella Cucina's retail boutique located in the heart of the Virginia Highland neighborhood), for a quick bite and stock up of pantry needs. With Halloween just around the corner, and Thanksgiving not too far beyond, preparing dishes with classic flavors of Fall are a must and Bella has got you covered!
**10/23 UPDATE: Porta Via is hosting a Fall cooking class and demo Thursday 10/25 at 7pm, tickets are $15... Contact the store for more details**
Bella Cucina's Walnut Sage Pesto (above) and Sweet Pumpkin Pesto (below) are two perfect ideas for incorporating a roasted nuttiness and/or sweetness to favorite recipes.... Get cooking with creator and founder of Bella Cucina Alisa Barry's recipe for Roasted Pumpkin & Sage Risotto below....
