A note about serious food allergies
Da Vinci, Amerigo Vespucci, Machiavelli, this pork chop… all hail from the region of Italy known as Tuscany. (Well, not the piggy… that we don't know.) The inspiration for this dish hails from Tuscany, sunny and dotted with sunflowers. Brightness abounds, with a tomato-y Parmesan sauce, with a hint of spice making the perfect adornment for the tender and lean pork chop. The cauliflower scampi brings the divine decadence, just as Da Vinci would have drawn. (Well… he didn't draw many vegetables.) Altogether, this meal brings the Tuscan touch into your evening meal. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.
