Sarah Copeland, author of the new cookbook Every Day Is Saturday, knows a thing or two about effortlessly beautiful dishes. When she spent the day cooking with us, she taught us that an easy appetizer can do double duty as a stunning centerpiece.
“A true Catalan romesco sauce—with freshly roasted red peppers, garlic, bread crumbs and olive oil—requires a bit of time,” Copeland says. “The good news is that it’s remarkable in flavor and aroma. Once you’ve made it, all you need is a bunch of gloriously fresh vegetables to create a centerpiece for any occasion.”
Why roast the peppers? It gives them a richer, softer quality and brings out their vibrant color. (But don’t worry—if your guests are coming in a few minutes, jarred roasted red peppers will work in a pinch.)
Another tip from Copeland: Make an extra batch of the sauce and keep the leftovers in the fridge for up to five days to spread on sandwiches, serve with seafood and use as a dip for any veggie you love.
