One of the first stops on the Mom Blog Tour at the Summer Fancy Food Show was at Carmine’s in New York City. Living in the tri-state area all my life, if you could believe it, I had never been to this landmark restaurant!

I was expecting your typical Italian fare, but when the waiter brought out our meals, I was at awe at the beautiful dishes that Wendy, our host, chose for us to enjoy. One of my favorites was Chicken Scarpariello.

I think what I would make is something simple. I love a beautiful salad with fresh garden produce. I would have an oil and vinegar dressing. I might also dip some fresh breadsticks in this oil it looks and sounds delicious.

This is definitely a recipe I would try to make. I also love Capatriti EVOO and am shocked that so many Extra V O oils don't meet the standards.
