TV Chef Rick Tarantino joins Old Neighborhood’s Test Kitchen
Television Celebrity Chef Rick Tarantino has teamed up with us at Old Neighborhood Foods to develop great tasting new recipes for our products and collaborate with us on developing new flavors for a series of healthy, low salt, low fat chicken sausages.
“We want to help busy consumers out of the food rut of preparing the same meals all the time. These are easy recipes consumers can make in their everyday life and I make sure it will work as well in the consumer’s kitchen as in ours. Sausage is a great staple, there are all kinds of sausages from different ethnic backgrounds that have blended into the American diet so it can become a once-a-week menu item in most households,” Chef Rick explains.
You’ll find all his Old Neighborhood Foods recipes here on our web site. Some examples include Baked Cod with Chourico and White Beans, Philly Cheesesteak or Grilled Drunken Sausage. Some also include instructional videos featuring Chef Rick.
