The summer harvest is at its peak, with favorites such as heirloom tomatoes, eggplant, green beans and cucumbers ripening in abundance as we reach the end of August. This week, put these gorgeous offerings to delicious use in a traditional Spanish-style paella crafted with our own signature chicken stock and a pinch of fragrant saffron. Also featuring Italian Rustica bread and farm-fresh fruit including melons, plums and grapes, this summery lineup is fit for a crowd—gather ‘round the paella pan, uncork a bottle of white wine and enjoy!
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
