DIY pistachio dishes for World Pistachio Day
Thursday 25 February 2010
In honor of World Pistachio Day, February 25, here are some pistachio-inspired recipes from around the globe explained in videos.
The pistachio nut's distinct flavor is often omitted from recipes because of the labor-intensive shells or salt. To get around these issues, find extra helpers or look for unsalted, shelled pistachios in your market.
Here are a variety of dishes from sweet desserts like the Sicilian pistachio cake to spiced pistachio stuffed tandoori chicken to try.
