Peter Klein’s Gnocchi & Quick Marinara
Here’s another recipe from our dear friend and chef, Peter Klein. We’ve shared more wonderful meals with Peter K. over the years than we can count.
You may find that this recipe appears a bit more complex than others we’ve shared, but it’s actually fairly simple and well worth a little extra effort. Your family and friends will be blown away when you serve this home-made dish up.
Who doesn't love rice? Pete's grandfather ( Peter as well but we called him Nono) made this simple rice dish all the time.
Rice alone is always a great side dish, its easily prepared but we find its often nice to add a little extra flavor. Here is one or our simple tips for making rice a little more “special”
Sole with Lemon and Capers
We made this simple, delicious Filet of Sole with Lemon and Capers recipe as one of the staples of the studio. It’s particularly popular when Pete and Manny would come back from one of their fishing trips off of Montauk!

Pete’s Famous Chicken Wings
Who doesn't love crispy chicken wings??? Pete played around for years with different techniques to create a great wing recipe and in the end (and as so often is the case) simplicity rules!
ABSOLUTELY, THE BEST CHICKEN WINGS....EVER!
Franklin Becker’s Beet Chips
Franklin Becker understands that beet chips have a lot more natural sugar than potato chips, but far fewer carbs.

Its much easier than a classic pie as the more rustic crust, the more impressed your guests will be. Let us know what you think!
We'll be definitely featuring more great recipes from Sarah here.... but if you're into cookbooks the way we are, ...
Talk about easy & delicious! This wonderful side dish recipe came from Pete's mom. As a kid, he had “issues” with some vegetables so his mom added a little something extra to the carrots she would often make for family dinner. The result...Pete loved his carrots and we're pretty sure your kids and family will too!
