A note about serious food allergies

There's nothing finer after a long day of work and life than a succulent piece of meat and a nicely prepared sauce. Here, tender chicken is enrobed with the tangy Dijon and creamy cheese (literally!) making for lip-smacking flavors with every bite. And if that's not enough to sooth away the troubles, this piccata with cauliflower and our favorite salty little buddies, capers, will turn off the Slack and email for the night. Relax, and chow down.
