Spaghetti Squash initially had a difficult introduction to the US market, and now stands strong as a pinnacle of versatile healthy eating. As with all other cucurbits – plants within the gourd family – the predecessor to spaghetti squash originated in the Americas. They spread across the world with colonization in the 16th century. It found its contemporary form in Manchuria, China and was then brought back to Japan after their invasion and occupation of the area in the 1930s. From there it hit US markets after further genetic refinement.
One of the easiest ways to treat spaghetti squash is to roast it and, you guessed it, treat it like pasta. Cut in half and scrape out the seeds, drizzle olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper inside. Flip them over and place on a baking sheet with parchment paper, poke a couple holes with a fork in the skins and bake for thirty to forty minutes. When it is cool enough to touch, use a fork to pull out and fluff the insides.Toss with a classic tomato sauce or a squeeze of lemon and pesto.
Alex by Hofkaseri Kraus
This herbaceous, semi-firm German cheese is named for the train that connects the southern countryside where it is made. The raw cow’s milk for Alex comes entirely from hay-fed Brown Swiss Cows. After the wheel is crafted it is then washed gently in local herbs and elderflower cordial, leaving it with meaty, creamy flavors and a hint of fruit. Alex is best when melted into fondue or on top of a hearty, crusty bread.
Brebirousse d’Argental is a creamy cheese like brie and tastes little sweet and buttery, made from sheep’s milk. It is soft-ripened cheese with a bloomy rind and pleasant tangy taste. Its orange rind is formed due to annato sprinkled on cheese during maturation. Made in Lyon, France this cheese is super soft and makes for a nice change from Brie.
