Appetizers of course start the evening’s events. Set the stage for a successful
evening of entertaining with this classic recipe from Lodestar Culinary Director

Chiffonade? French word for “made of rags.” For a recipe it means to cut into thin
strips. For basil chiffonade stack leaves and roll. Cut along vein. Voila!
Arugula is the leafy answer to onions but without the aftertaste.
