Sara's got two great ones: her picadillo sloppy Joe with the terrific counterpoint of prunes and green olives. Surprisingly, she shows how to grind your own meat. Roasted vegetable and fresh ricotta sandwiches are another winning combo and Sara even shows how to make the ricotta. She also visits a worth bakery for bread lovers —Hot Bread Kitchen. This non-profit food incubator helps struggling women get a leg up by teaching them baking skills so they may move on to jobs at other bakeries. They sample some of their delicious bread.
