what we're cooking now

At Pip Imports and Domestics, we love to cook and eat. Below are some of the seasonal dishes our kitchens are turning out.

orcchiette with butternut squash & fennel sausage

Butternut squash is so good for you, but we think it needs a good dose of umami to help it shine. Fennel sausage, Pecorino Romano, and abundant garlic serve that purpose here. Roasted Brussels sprouts and onions provide a slightly bitter and crunchy foil for the sweet squash and aromatic fennel. We enjoyed it with Terre Stregate Svelato Falanghina.

butter chicken with raita and chutney

Spicy dishes are warming on cool fall evenings. Butter chicken, like many Indian dishes, is resplendent with spices, including turmeric, ginger, cumin, cinnamon, garlic and chili. Sweet and sour apple chutney and cool cucumber raita offer palate-pleasing contrast as sides. We love this with Middle Earth Sauvignon Blanc.

roast chicken with fall vegetables

Classic comfort food, roast chicken is easy and satisfying any night of the week. Here our team member Angela has added acorn squash, onion, carrots, and potatoes to the pan, and topped the chicken with herbs. Peter Paul Frère Vineyard Pinot Noir is a perfect partner.
