I was sent a gift pack from Progresso and myblogspark that includes one package of Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko and an autographed copy of chef Chiarello’s new cookbook: Michael Chiarello’s Bottega. I was also provided with an additional gift pack of the same items to give away to one of my readers. Yay!
If you haven't had a chance to try Panko yet, let me tell you a little bit about it. Panko adds a flavorful crunch to create simple yet savory recipes. It can be used when frying, baking or broiling. Panko is made from the soft and tender centers of the bread. The bread pieces are large and flaky. They have a coarser texture than traditional bread crumbs that delivers a lighter, crunchier coating or topping. Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko combines the perfect crunch with effortless flavor that gives any dish that extra punch that it needs to please a crowd.
Chef Michael Chiarello uses panko as his go-to bread crumb for a crunch that won’t quit. He is an Emmy-award winning TV chef and cookbook author. Chef Chiarello is the tastemaker behind Bottega Napa Valley Restaurant, NapaStyle and Chiarello Family Vineyards. He also appears on The Cooking Channel and Top Chef Masters only on Bravo.
Chef Chiarello is helping cooks everywhere use Progresso’s panko to make flavorful, flawless recipes. Here are just a few of the recipes that he has put together: Crispy Seafood Salad, Mama Chiarello's Stuffed Eggplant and Turkey Scallopini and Squash Ravioli with Cranberry Brown Butter.
