Recipes for the final PMMNLS (boo!) with Rick Lowe (yay!)

Panzanella (this is the perfect recipe for stale bread & fresh tomatoes)
Chop or tear a loaf of crusty stale Italian or French or Pita bread. Best not use hippie bread. Could be interesting with a dense German/Danish style, though
If it isn't quite stale, toss in in a low over for a half hour to dry it out
Pour and toss with good quality olive oil
Whilst the bread is soaking up the oil, roughly chop fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, parsley and garlic- add to the bread, with a big spoonful of capers, some fresh oregano and a generous squeeze of lemon juice
Season with S & P and you are good to go
Add feta for fun
You can also make a nice extra dressing with dijon, olive oil, lemon juice and preserved lemons- whisk together and drizzle on top
Eat within a few hours
