Tag: Variety: It’s the Spice

Variety: It’s the Spice!

Our September 24th concert was an experiment: a test to see just how much variety could be crammed into a single concert program performed by a single ensemble. To up the ante, we also added an element of chance; allowing the audience to play…

Dolce e Delizioso III

In the final variation in our Dolce e Delizioso collection, we’ll turn a single cake layer into a decadent layered dessert that will make an impressive presentation in a trifle dish or can be made into elegant individual servings.

Dolce e Delizioso II

Today’s variation turns one cake layer into a simple but decadent layer cake sure to please any fans of the classic Moon Pie sandwich cookie: buttery cake layers separated by fluffy marshmallow creme, all enclosed in a shell made of rich chocolate.

Dolce e Delizioso I

In this final collection of recipes, we’ll play sweetly in the kitchen; calling upon a single versatile cake recipe to deliver an array of tempting treats fit for finishing a meal or rounding out a special occasion.

Lines & Spaces III

For the final variation in our Lines & Spaces series, we’ll swap out the greens for some colorful beans; and take out the ricotta, replacing it with nutty, creamy fontina to make a lasagna like no other!

Variety: It’s the Spice!

Our concert on September 24th is going to be a celebration of musical variety — a daring departure from organization and the expected! Not only is everything on the program a secret, but even the musicians don’t know the order the concert will be…

Lines & Spaces II

Our first variation spins our lines and spaces in a new, green direction — replacing meat with leafy Swiss chard for a lighter lasagna that still delivers the warm-fuzzies we expect from comfort food.

Lines & Spaces I

Within the five lines and four spaces of a staff, a composer creates all manner of beauty and complexity. In our second “Theme & Variations” recipe collection, we take our cue from the staff, making a delicious composition using everyone’s favorite comfort food: lasagna!

Musical Fruit III

Our final variation on the theme abandons flashy spices but still provides a show-stopping performance through a touch of elegance and subtlety.

Musical Fruit II

Our first variation on the theme crackles with color and fiery flavors! We’ll swap out the red beans, replacing them with pintos… and that’s just the beginning. We’ll transform the dish into a Tex-Mex style dish that’s just this side of chili!

Musical Fruit I

For our first collection in the Theme & Variations series, I decided we should explore the musical fruit (beans!) by starting with a very basic recipe and then expanding its flavor horizons a bit.
