|Chef Bill starts cooking Catelli pasta while |
Gary Yokoyama shoots photos for the Hamilton Spectator.
We had a Hamilton Spectator photographer in last week, taking photos while Chef Bill prepared the simplest of food: pasta. Why is The Spec interested in this incongruous match? Our chef was one of sixteen chefs across the country to contribute to an online cookbook from Catelli Pasta entitled Gourmet Family Meals for Under $10.
The cookbook is part of the company’s Feed the Hope initiative; Catelli is donating up to one million servings of pasta to Canadian food banks - one for each ‘like’ on their Facebook page, and one for each box of their pasta sold in Canada between April 1 and June 30. Chef Bill’s contribution was a recipe (‘Long noodles and Special Meatballs’) that has a bit of a twist, yet is simple to make with ingredients that are common household staples.
To learn more about Catelli’s campaign, visit their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/catelli. Once you hit the ‘Like’ button, you will be able to download the recipes and read about the chefs that contributed to the cookbook. Watch the Hamilton Spectator for their coverage of the Feed the Hope campaign too.
