Side Dishes

Who doesn’t love a faithful sidekick? A proper side knows its place – to provide balance, flavor and variety of texture and presentation. The side may be one of the most creative opportunities for cooks, and a great opportunity to take chances with foods and flavors to complement, enhance and contrast all the other elements of a meal. And for some like me, the “sides” are combined to make the main meal!
