Welcome to the St Louis European Auto Show. One of the finest auto shows in the Midwest. Over the last quarter century, the show has grown from a small group of St Louis area European cars to over 200 spectacular show cars not including the wonderful examples from across the pond brought to you by our supporting sponsors and car dealers. Nowhere else in the area will you see a collection of cars, almost all of which are driven to the show, of this caliber. So, what brings this group of enthusiasts together?

Our third year at Taubman Prestige Outlets in Chesterfield Missouri will be even better than before with improved amenities including more food and drinks, improved PA system and convenient shuttles.

Taubman can accommodate parking for the haulers, show cars, attendees and much, much more. They are going to create the Taubman Café for a food and beverage service and the bathrooms are plentiful, clean and nice. Access to the facility is very convenient for both arrival and departure. Not to mention the SHOPPING!

How to drink coffee like an Italian

Mary Beth Albright

Visiting an embassy in Washington actually places you officially on foreign soil. You feel transported to another culture, even though your house might be just a few blocks away. Often at embassies, a mindfulness surrounds the enjoyment of a country’s great food traditions, the enjoyment of the moment, even if the moment lasts only a few seconds. I realized that this idea is bigger than coffee. The Post’s seat in Washington lets us show global diversity of food and culture through embassies and is an opportunity to document food diplomacy.


St. Joseph’s Day – March 19th, 2018 and the Pasta

If you cannot make it to one of the many St. Joseph’s Day Celebrations during the month of March, try this dish to serve at home.

Since St. Joseph’s Day always falls during the season of Lent, a period of penance and fasting, no meat is served.  Instead, fish and pasta are staples of the feast.  One traditional Sicilian dish is Pasta con le Sarde or Pasta with Sardines and another is Spaghetti with Anchovies and Breadcrumbs.  Since St. Joseph was a carpenter, the breadcrumbs, which are an ingredient in both dishes, are meant to symbolize sawdust.  Both of these dishes are also commonly served as part of the Eve of the Seven
dinner on Christmas Eve.

The pasta used in Pasta with Sardines is typically a long hollow pasta such as bucatini or perciatelli.  In Italy, wild fennel is used and also fresh sardines. Since it is usually difficult to find fresh sardines in the US, this recipe substitutes canned sardines.


Pasta con le Sarde (Pasta with Sardines)

(Serves 4)


1 pound pasta (spaghetti, bucatini, perciatelli)
1 fennel bulb
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/3 cup pine nuts
3/4 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 medium onion, chopped
3 to 4 garlic cloves, minced
4 to 5 anchovies, chopped
3 (3.75 ounce) cans sardines in olive oil, drained
1/3 cup dried currants
1 pinch saffron
Salt and pepper


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Add the pasta and cook until al dente.

Heat a small skillet; toast the pine nuts until lightly golden, 3-4 minutes.  Transfer the nuts to a small plate; set aside.  Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet; add the breadcrumbs.  Stir the breadcrumbs over medium eat until golden, 3-4 minutes.  Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Remove the fronds from the fennel, chop them, and set aside.  Remove the core from the fennel bulb; coarsely chop the bulb.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.  Saute the onions, garlic, and chopped fennel bulb until lightly golden, about 5 minutes.  Add the anchovies and half of the sardines; stir to break up the sardines and anchovies.  Add the currants and toasted pine nuts.  Cook the mixture for about 5 minutes.
Scoop a ladle of the pasta water into the sardine mixture.  Stir in the saffron; season with salt and pepper.  Cook for 1-2 minutes.

Drain the pasta, reserving some of the cooking water.  Add the drained pasta to the sardine mixture in the skillet.  Stir pasta well to coat with the sauce.  Gently stir in the remaining sardines.  Allow to cook for another minute, just to heat the added sardines.  Add some of the reserved pasta cooking water if the sauce is too dry.  Transfer the pasta to a serving dish.  Sprinkle some of the toasted breadcrumbs and chopped fennel fronds on top.  Serve, passing the remaining breadcrumbs to be added, if desired.

Spaghetti with Anchovies and Breadcrumbs

(Serves 4)


12 anchovy fillets in olive oil, drained
1 pound spaghetti
1/2 cup olive oil
6 large garlic cloves, minced
Large pinch of red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2/3 cup toasted fresh breadcrumbs


Finely chop 6 anchovy fillets; cut the remaining 6 into 1/2-inch pieces; set aside.  Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until al dente.

While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat.  Add the garlic, red pepper, and finely chopped anchovies.  Cook, stirring until the anchovies dissolve.  Remove the skillet from the heat.  Stir in the parsley and remaining anchovies.

Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water and drain the pasta.  Add the pasta to the skillet with the anchovy sauce.  Toss until the strands are well coated.  Add some of the reserved pasta water if the mixture seems too dry.  Set aside 2 tablespoons of the toasted bread crumbs.  Add the remaining crumbs to the skillet and toss the pasta again.  Transfer the pasta to individual serving bowls.
Top each serving with a sprinkling of the reserved bread crumbs.

Toasted Fresh Bread Crumbs
(Makes about 3/4 cup)

Toasted breadcrumbs can be made by sauteing them in a skillet or baking them in an oven.

In a skillet: 
Warm 2 tablespoon olive oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat.  Add 3/4  cup of fresh breadcrumbs and stir to coat with oil.  Cook, stirring constantly, until the crumbs are golden brown and crunchy, about 5 minutes.

In the oven:
Place 3/4 cup of fresh bread crumbs in a bowl with 2 tablespoons olive oil.
Using your hands, gently combine the ingredients.  Spread the breadcrumbs on a baking sheet and place in a 350 degree F. oven.  Bake about 8 minutes, stirring a couple of times, until golden brown and crisp.

Easter Baking – Pupa Con L’Uova (Italian Easter Cookies) by Marianna Santangelo Vitale

Easter Baking – Pupa Con L’Uova (Italian Easter Cookies)

I love this time of year when winter ends and spring begins. There is such a sense of renewal and hope.  It has warmed up earlier than normal many plants are in full bloom and the spring flowers are opening every morning.

Easter is just around the corner.  Every year I have an Easter cookie tradition that is a pleasing reminder of days gone by, baking pupa con l’uovo. It can be a sweet yeast bread that is braided around colored eggs or it can be a cookie dough braided around the egg. My Sicilian mother made these every year.

It is a wonderful combination that smells so good and tastes great. My favorite part is icing the cookies and topping  them with various sprinkles, such as little chocolate eggs, marshmellow bunnies  or non-pareils.

Pupa Con L’Uova

4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 sticks of butter
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
Moisten with about 1/3 cup of milk

Blend butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla.  slowly add the four and baking powder and milk to bring dough together. Let dough rest in the fridge for an hour.

1 c. powdered sugar
1-2 Tbsp. milk
1/2 tsp anise, almond or lemon extract…..optional

In mixer combine butter and sugar. add the eggs. Combine flour, baking powder and add one cup at a time until you have a soft dough that is easy to handle. Break off a baseball-size piece of dough and form into a disk;  then form a double twist with the ends and wrap around egg. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet  Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes until firm and pale golden, but not brown. Cool on rack. Combine icing ingredients and whisk until smooth. Use a silicon pastry brush to brush cookies with icing, then sprinkle with non-pareils. You can adjust the flavor of the dough with combinations like almond and orange, or lemon and vanilla if desired. Makes about 12 cookies
