We just finished filming a new season of Barefoot Contessa and I wanted to throw a party for the crew – but after filming all day, there was no time to cook!! I decided to do a simple appetizer buffet of things I could assemble at the last minute- the only real cooking involved was roasting the shrimp for 10 minutes and making a few easy dips. All I had to do before the party was arrange the platters and pop the Champagne!! Now that's my kind of party!
It’s Academy Awards time!! Why not treat your friends to a Hollywood-worthy dinner?? Tagliarelle with Truffle Butter is my go-to really fast but incredibly special dinner. And since the pasta sauce is made with white truffle butter instead of shaved truffles, you won’t need a movie contract to afford it!!
This Week's Question
I normally serve Roasted Shrimp Cocktail at room temperature; they don't have to be warm. Of course you can make them in advance, but I find refrigerating the shrimp changes their flavor and texture. I would prep everything in advance, and roast the shrimp up to an hour before you plan to serve them.
