It's Friday the 13th -- it's rare that we will…
Doppi, in Italian, is double. When it comes to food, that means that you get two different stuffings in a ravioli.
And did you know that ravioli is the diminutive of old Italian dialect rava, meaning “turnip.” So in ravioli, you have in fact a plump little turnip (furthermore, the Italian word for radish is ravanello).
While they use a different kind of vegetable entirely, Chef Eric Neaves and his staff prepare doppi ravioli at Fork and Cork Grill, located on Weber Street East in the Kingsdale neighbourhood of Kitchener. The current iteration — hand made at the restaurant — is a stunningly beautiful squash and goat cheese version served with spinach, pumpkin seeds, Parmesan and balsamic.
