A note about serious food allergies

"Oh, pistachio… roll me over pistachio." Those are the words to the famous Van Morrison song from the early 70s, and we'll stand by that. Why would one sing about dull dominoes when there's a salty, crunchy pistachios, combined with parsley and Parmesan for the most groovy of gremolatas. This provides every bite of succulent pork with the perfect nutty companion. Deliciousness like this? Lord have mercy.
