Italian Black Summer Truffles
Black summer truffles are more subtle than the winter variety. Shave truffle over cooked potatoes, toss with herbs and a shallot vinaigrette. Thinly shave truffle over scrambled eggs.
It is the only lettuce type that does not occur in red form as well as green. Iceberg is the given name to dozens of cultivars of lettuce, all of which are adapted to specific planting regions and time periods.

Kabocha squash is available year round.
Resembling the Buttercup, the turban-shaped kabocha, pronounced kah-BOH-chah, is an Oriental squash encased in a dull, deep green, thick, mottled rind with pale, uneven stripes. Round with a flattened top, it ranges from one to eight pounds but generally weighs an average of two to three pounds. The deep, yellow-orange cooked pulp is finely grained, floury-dry and tender. Seeds and strings in the cavity are characteristically oily to the touch. Rather sweet, its rich flavor combines that of a sweet potato and a pumpkin.
All squashes provide vitamin A and vitamin C, some of the B vitamins, and are a good source of fiber. Approximately 100 calories are in one cup of cooked squash. Deep-colored squashes have the most beta carotene.
Kabocha squash is a sweet-fleshed, hard-skinned variety. Peel or bake with the skin on. Dice and roast squash chunks with oil and spices or combine with cream and cheese, baked into a gratin. Add roasted squash to soup, stew or risotto. Puree and mix into softened butter. Slice and roast with honey and citrus. Kabocha squash pairs well with Asian spices, nuts and dried fruit flavors, as well as the textures of cooked faro, barley, lentils, or pasta. Kabocha squash will keep for weeks in cool, dry storage.
Kabocha is actually a generic grouping for many strains of Japanese winter squashes and pumpkins of both Cucurbita moschata and Cucurbita maxima and is also a specific marketing name used in the United States. Prized in Japan, this variety is especially popular in Oriental markets on the West Coast.
