Charred Cabbage Salad Recipe

By Sponsored by: Intero – February 1, 2020

At its core, the idea behind Italian cooking stems from necessity and gratitude of fresh, regionally available ingredients. Translating to “entire’’ in Italian, Intero embraces this concept by utilizing the “whole” ingredient in combination with exercising traditional cooking techniques practiced throughout Italy.

Focused on fabricating solely locally-raised whole animals and locally-farmed whole produce, Intero prides itself in practicing the art of being a zero food-waste kitchen, meaning every bit of food serves a purpose. This focus engages the Intero team to continually exert their creativity whether it be charring corn husks for flavorings in pasta, turning butternut squash scraps into a rich and smoky broth or using herb stems to make bright aromatic oils. Striving to provide guests with elevated, yet familiar dishes, cocktails, desserts and specialty chocolates, all preparations are created in-house and by hand, including their gluten free pasta. A true farm-to-table Italian restaurant, Intero highlights its vegetarian offerings with as much regard as its protein dishes. Intero is chef-owned by husband and wife team Chef Ian Thurwachter and Chocolatier/Pastry Chef Krystal Craig.
