Top 5 Food Ingredients For a Personal Chef: Chef Hanna Robinson Meyer Lemon: Use the whole fruit— rind and all! Puree with shallots and olive oil in a food processor for a fabulous pasta sauce. Pepitas (Toasted Pumpkin Seeds): I love their nutty flavor when toasted. They make a fantastic topping for salads! Olio Santo Olive Oil: The best olive oil I have ever tasted. Finish any dish with just a drizzle and it will taste that much better. Tahini: Spread this on an English muffin with apricot preserves for a delicious snack. Amazing in salad dressings with fresh herbs and lemon juice and spread on pan-fried chicken - It's so good, you’ll think you're eating fried chicken! Radishes: Pink on the outside, white on the inside, these little gems make any dish more visually appealing. Plus, their crisp flesh adds the perfect crunch.
