We Chat With: Einat Admony of Balaboosta

Chef Einat Admony of Balaboosta is both a creative, passionate chef and a nurturer by nature who wants family and customers alike to eat often and well. Her dishes tease with familiarity—hummus, pizza, olives, burrata cheese—but then take off in wild and unexpected directions in both flavor and presentation. As Admony speaks about food, you can tell she really loves eating it. More

A Sandwich A Day: The Goat Cheese Panino at Balaboosta

A really good split ciabatta with a nice crisp crust and tender crumb with just enough chew gets stuffed with goat cheese, sweet roasted red peppers, grilled planks of zucchini, and kalamata olives with a tasteful smear of pesto (I can't stand an over-pestoed sandwich).
