Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko & Cookbook Review & Giveaway

by Nicole on November 8, 2010

Name of Product: Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko & Bottega Cookbook by Michael Chiarello

Description of Product: “Whether frying, baking or broiling, this culinary superstar adds a flavorful crunch to create simple, savory recipes. Made from the soft, tender centers of the bread, Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko combines the perfect crunch with effortless flavor to give any dish that extra punch. The large, flaky crumb has a coarser texture than traditional bread crumbs, delivering a lighter, crunchier coating or topping. A chef known for his emphasis on creating delicious dishes with fresh, premium ingredients, Chef Michael Chiarello uses panko as his go-to bread crumb for a crunch that won´t quit. An Emmy-award winning TV chef and cookbook author, Chef Chiarello is the tastemaker behind Bottega Napa Valley Restaurant, NapaStyle and Chiarello Family Vineyards, and 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 including Crispy Seafood Salad, Mama Chiarello’s Stuffed Eggplant and Turkey Scallopini and Squash Ravioli with Cranberry Brown Butter.

Review of Product: I enjoy using panko crumbs over traditional bread crumbs because the panko crumbs make food crunchier and it stays crunchy even after reheating.  I sometimes use them as a topping over food like macaroni and cheese, it’s not just for frying or baking! The lemon pepper flavor tastes awesome as a coating on fish especially.  I made a delicious flounder rolled in the lemon pepper panko, it was the perfect amount of flavor and crunch! Michael Chiarello is a Food Network Chef that I watch frequently.  I enjoy his Italian cooking and his new cookbook, “Bottega” is full of awesome photos and tantalizing recipes such as Ricotta Gnocchi with Salsa della Nonna and Strawberry Tiramisu Semifreddo. Make sure to snag this $1 off coupon for the panko.
