The holidays are here! Time to feast with our friends, and treat them to a surprise. Hosts work so hard to entertain and plan the perfect dinner party – an early morning trip to the farmer’s market to grab the best produce, developing the menu, setting a beautiful table, and making sure guests have delicious hors d’oeuvres and beverages to enjoy when they arrive. And don’t forget dessert. You know dessert is the best part of a holiday feast, especially with a warm, rich cup of coffee to complement the evening.
Long time San Francisco resident and pastry chef, Michelle Pusateri was having trouble finding the breakfast she needed to fuel her active lifestyle and sustain her hunger until lunch. So of course as any talented, crazy… but talented person would do, she creates a recipe in her small Outer Sunset kitchen, and begins giving it to everyone she knows, including myself. One recipe becomes three, and before she even knows what’s happened, Nana Joe’s Granola is born. Thank goodness!
