This is a great dish for anyone that thinks they don’t like eggplant. Salting the eggplant and cooking until its soft and creamy helps it melt into the hot pasta. It’s also an easy and hearty vegetarian meal!

Cherry slab pie and Italian peaches and cream: Ed Smith’s stone fruit recipes | Pie

I quite like a fruit pie; I really like a “slab” fruit pie (because: the corners); and I love a slab pie filled with naturally sour fruits. Rhubarb and gooseberries are the obvious choice for fans of seasonal British fruit – and, as it happens, 800–900g of either substitute perfectly in today’s first recipe without any other changes. However, there’s something about an apricot pie that sucks me in, largely because of that fruit’s transformation from mellow and sometimes dull when raw to always tart once cooked. The mix of burnt peach, basil, pistachio and burrata, meanwhile, feels like peak summer on a plate; the perfumed fruit and herbs relax so effortlessly into cold, creamy, fresh cheese. Indeed, it is something you’ll most likely want to eat if the weather matches, or your mind is in holiday mode.

Italian restaurant’s new owners expand dining options | Business

The economic shutdown resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic has led to numerous store and restaurant closings across the country.

But that’s not the story with La Casa di Norma in Crystal River. The former owners of the Italian restaurant had long sought to retire and sell the place. Not only did they find a willing buyer ready to take a chance on the current economic conditions, but the new owners have already started expansion plans.

Deisy Rivas and German Perez admit their friends thought they were crazy to buy now. But they couldn’t resist the opportunity.

“I love this restaurant,” said Deisy Rivas.

Rivas said she and her husband were regulars as well at the restaurant and got to know the former owners, Licio and Norma
