Frittata L’Autunno


  • Carapelli Organic EVOO
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1 cup cremini mushrooms
  • 6 whole eggs
  • ½ cup pancetta
  • ⅓ cup whole milk
  • ¼ cup goat cheese crumbles


STEP 1 Preheat the oven to 350° F. Heat the EVOO in a medium oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, reduce the heat to low, and cook about 10 minutes. While the mushrooms cook, in a separate pan cook cubed pancetta on medium heat until brown. About 5 minutes. Remove extra fat from pan.

STEP 2 Add the arugula to the mushrooms and season to taste with salt. Cook until the arugula is wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Raise the heat to medium high. Add pancetta.

STEP 3 In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and milk to combine. Pour the mixture into the pan and let it cook for 2 to 3 minutes to set the base. Sprinkle the crumbled goat cheese on top of the egg mixture.

STEP 4 Transfer the pan to the oven and bake until the frittata is set, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving. The frittata can be served warm, at room temperature, or chilled.

Grilled steak with olive oil charred scallions


  • 900 g of steak
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • 2 bunches scallions
  • 1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil (divided) Carapelli Organic
  • Flaky sea salt, such as Maldon


STEP 1 Generously sprinkle the steaks with kosher salt and black pepper and set aside.

STEP 2 Rinse the scallions and pat dry. Trim off any wilted ends and thin onion skin.

STEP 3 Preheat grill for medium-high direct heat. Pour 1 Tbsp. of Carapelli Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil on a thick, folded piece of paper towel and carefully wipe the hot grill grates, holding the paper towel with tongs for safety.

STEP 4 Place the steaks on the grill and cook for about 5 minutes per side, flipping once or twice.

STEP 5 Let the steaks rest while the scallions cook. Toss the scallions with the remaining 1 tsp. of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in a perforated grill pan or crosswise on the grill grates and cook just until charred in spots, about 3–4 minutes.

STEP 6 To serve, slice the steaks against the grain into 1-inch thick pieces. Arrange on a platter with the scallions. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with flaky sea salt.

Alternatively, preheat a grill pan or large cast iron skillet over high heat for at least 5 minutes. Prep with olive oil and cook the steak and scallions as directed above.
