At his Boston and New York City restaurants, Jamie Bissonnette serves this romesco, a nut and red pepper-based sauce originally from Catalonia, over squash cooked a la plancha (grilled). We simplify the preparation by sautéing the squash in a cast iron skillet.

Pan con Tomate

Pan con Tomate

Typically enjoyed for breakfast and called pa amb tomàquet in Catalan, Pan con Tomate is traditionally made by rubbing a ripe tomato on a toasted piece of day-old bread. In a twist on the classic, Powell uses jarred tumaca sauce from the Spain Box to make the preparation even easier. Sliced heirloom tomatoes add an extra punch of tomato flavor.

Patatas Bravas: Potatoes with Chorizo from Spain

Patatas bravas is a dish of fried quartered potatoes that’s served in virtually every bar in Spain. Fried + potatoes? Sounds like a recipe for drunk food. In this version, Powell bakes the potatoes to make a slightly healthier version that’s still just as flavorful.
