Hankerings by Jamie Leeds


When I think of the seasons, my first thoughts aren’t of leaves changing color or of a frost in the air, but of smells and tastes.  As a chef, when I think of Autumn I think of the hearty aroma of herbs like rosemary and sage… oh, it makes me so happy!  As I’ve been putting together the Fall menu for Hank’s Pasta Bar, I’ve been busy toasting pumpkin seeds for our Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad… and fennel seeds to go into our fennel sausage for the creamy Malfalde.

With a slight chill in the air, it’s the perfect time of the year for slow cooking, and I can hardly wait for you to try my Braised Pork Shank with Pearl Pasta and Parmesan Jus!  Or my Grilled Veal Chop with Caramelized Cipollini Onions.  And fish… let’s talk about fish.  I’ve prepared my warm Seafood Stew filled with Shrimp, Scallops, Fish, Mussels all swimming in a Saffron-Orange Broth. I can’t finish without telling you all about our pasta! We’re bringing back our extremely popular Butternut Squash Ravioli, Pappardelle Al Ragu, Fettuccine Bolognese and my favorite, Paccheri Cacciatore.

You can see, we have a lot for you to try and I’d love to invite you to come taste the way I see Fall.
