When his latest cookbook, Bottega, arrived on my doorstep (thanks to Progresso & MyBlogSpark), I was thrilled. It is a beautiful book, full of gorgeous photographs, stories and of course, recipes.
Chiarello has teamed up with Progresso and shared some of his favorite recipes using their light and crispy Panko crumbs. You can visit the Progresso site for additional recipes, tips for cooking with panko, video and a coupon for $1 off any panko flavor.
I love these crumbs as they stay crunchy, even when reheating. I mix them with a few spices, some grated parmesan cheese and love to coat chicken tenderloins with them.
I am excited that I can share this gorgeous cookbook (with his signature inside!) and a box of Lemon Pepper Panko crumbs with one of my readers.
