Rioja - Heirloom Tomato Consommé, Goat Cheese Ravioli
"I love the simplicity of this recipe. The consommé itself is not a classic consommé where you need to make a raft to clarify the stock. It is just a blending of ultra-tasty heirloom tomatoes strained through layers of cheesecloth. The garnish, a petite ravioli filled with creamy cheese, is a great complement to the light, clear broth." Jennifer Jasinski
This recipe gives back to Work Options for Women, a charity that is near and dear to Jennifer Jasinski's heart. The organization teaches food service skills to women who are experiencing poverty, operating out of two cafes and a mobile culinary classroom where the students get hands-on skills training. When Jasinski was a finalist on Top Chef Masters, she donated her winnings to Work Options for Women.
