Chef Anthony Pucciarello, owner of Cielo Restaurant & Bar in Fairfield, gave a cooking demonstration last Friday at the Caldwell Farmers' Market.
Pucciarello, a resident of Caldwell, but who has roots in the Belleville-Nutley area, purchased fresh produce available at the market and demonstrated how to prepare a simple pasta primavera. The consensus among the samplers—it was "amazing."
Watch the video above to learn how to do it yourself. The chef provides plenty of tips, such as how to pick garlic, when to season and what you should always do to zucchini before you cook it.
The Caldwell Farmers' Market is open Fridays, from noon to 6 p.m., at the Smull Avenue Parking lot through October.
