Cook With Wine with Chef Wanolitto and Des Moines Farmers Market Ingredients


Des Moines Farmers Market Chef Wanolitto wants to remind everybody that his free recipes for cooking with the Market Wines are still available at the wine booth every Saturday.

For people who are a little quimmy about cooking with wine, you can also pick up his guide, as well as talk with him about the dinner party you are putting together, or just what’s for dinner that evening.

Below you can download a couple of his new recipes he has put together for the last two months of the market season (PDF files):

Also, with local tomatoes coming into season, his recipe for Tomato Sauce (Marinara) is a great time to make ahead and freeze for the coming cold winter nights. All you have to do is thaw and add pasta from market vendor 18th Ave Pasta.

Don’t forget all the proceeds from the sale of market wines go towards the Market Foundation that helps pay for expenses to keep the market going.

Below is a complete list of cooking with wine recipes currently on file at the Wine Booth:
