1. Chef Cat Cora’s savoury-sweet Mediterranean treat

     Kalmata olive cupcake with brown sugarI love this unusual recipe for Cat Cora’s Kitchen by Gaea’s Feta and Olive Oil Cakes. I learned to really appreciate the combination of salty cheese and sweet honey years a few ago on a special tour of San Francisco’s wonderful Farmer’s Market. You may be shocked at how delicious feta, honey, and olives are together. Try these little treats for your next alfresco party.
