Here are this week’s Questions:

Q: Where can I buy Panettone?

A: In the Fargo-Moorhead area, we’ve found it at TJ Maxx, Costco, and Sam’s Club. Our local bread store, Breadsmith, makes fresh Panettone during the holiday season (it is delicious!), and we are waiting to find out when they expect to have it available. We’ll keep you posted.

Q: How do you make the whipped potatoes at Sarello’s taste so good?

A: When your potatoes have finished boiling, drain them and return them to the same pot. Turn the heat to medium-low to cook off the excess moisture before adding the cream and butter (about 2 to 3 minutes). This will ensure that the only liquid in the mix is the cream and butter, which will result in better taste and texture.

Q: Do you ever use an attachment to your electric mixer when making fresh pasta?

A: Yes, we have an attachment for our Kitchen Aid mixer that works great. Tony has made  fresh pasta using a pasta maker, a mixer attachment, and the old-fashioned way of rolling it out and cutting it.
