Blue Moose Bistro Serves Classic Italian "A La Ken"

Brattleboro, VT – Ken Flutie didn’t realize how his love and passion for food would change him when Italian grandmothers took him under their wings and taught him to cook the old-world or classic Italian way.

Born and raised in New York, Ken Flutie worked in restaurants as a line cook and sous chef with classical to traditional training during college, but when he first started working in retail (his professional career for thirty years) after graduation, the “Nonnas” (term of endearment which pays tribute to all the women and the women they learned from), who taught Ken to cook the Italian way – with passion, flavor and love. The Nonnas took him under their wing, made sure he knew how to cook and enjoy classic Italian home-made foods. Flutie kept his recipes and love of Italian cooking personal by serving family, friends and sometimes catering events until after he retired in 2005 from the retail business working for Phillips Van Heusen/Calvin Klein when he became a professional chef.

Foodie Forum: Your Zucchini Recipes

We're going into another week of heat. At this time the forecast says it will be 90ish until next weekend. One more heat wave and the zucchini will start coming in. If it's a bumper crop, bread will be made on the cooling nights. But there will be more, and how much zucchini bread do you really want? Sauteed zucchini is very nice- the first 4 times.

And so I come to you after a long absence.

I'm tired of my tried and true recipes. Yes, they're good and make lovely food. And I'm sick to death of them.

Please share your recipes. I don't care if it's seasoned fried slices. As long as I didn't create it, I'll  be a happy camper. Thank you.
