Coastal Olive Oils now carries Pappardelle’s Pasta — The Fine Art of Pasta. About Pappardelle’s…   Why? Pasta as art? Indeed! Our pasta is produced with the same care and attention to detail that artists use when taking paint to canvas or chisel to stone. Pappardelle’s pasta is a true artisanal food. And what exactly is an artisanal food? It is made by hand, using the finest-quality ingredients available and following traditional methods of production. Our pasta makers have an intimate knowledge of every step of the time- honored tradition of making pasta: the flour, the added ingredients, the mixing and extruding, and finally, the drying process. Every one of our products has the touch and oversight of a pasta maker guiding it through the delicate craft of turning flour, water and a variety of herbs, spices, vegetables and fruits into edible art — it takes one of our pasta makers well over a year to hone his or her skills and become a master dough maker.

Lime-Chipotle Olive Oil Aioli Coleslaw Recipe

Posted by on 9:30 am in Recipes | Comments Off on Lime-Chipotle Olive Oil Aioli Coleslaw Recipe

  I like to refer to this as the “money sauce”, a smokey, spicy, garlicky aioli, made from chipotle infused extra virgin olive oil. This this would make a shoe taste good if applied. Chipotle-Lime Aioli Ingredients 1 cup Chipotle Olive Oil 2 large egg yolks at room temperature** 2 garlic cloves, smashed 2 teaspoons sea salt 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice In the bowl of a food processor or blender jar, add the egg yolks, salt, garlic and lime juice.  Process until well combined. VERY SLOWLY, drop by drop, begin to drizzle in the Chipotle Olive Oil while the machine is running. Extreme patience must be taken with this slow process, as too much olive oil poured in at once will cause the sauce to break. Once the olive oil is completely poured in and emulsified, remove the aioli to a sealed container and refrigerate.  This condiment is fabulous on coleslaw, sandwiches, egg salad sandwiches, shoes… basically anything. **This recipe contains raw egg yolks.  If you have a compromised immune system, you can use pasteurized eggs for this recipe. Makes 1 1/4 cups of aioli Spicy Jalapeno-Chipotle Lime Coleslaw 1 medium head of cabbage shredded 1 recipe for Chipotle-Lime Aioli 1 large jalapeno, seeded, de-ribbed and finely minced 1 bell pepper, seeded, de-ribbed and finely minced 1/3 cup finely shredded red onion 1 tablespoon lime juice Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and refrigerate for at least one hour.  Serve over a fried chicken sandwich or as a side dish. Makes approximately 6-8 cups of...
