Sunrise Chef: Sagra Bistro & Bar

VIDEO: Sunrise Chef: Sagra Bistro

Robyn Cavallaro, owner of Sagra Bistro & Bar, stopped by the WFMZ kitchen to talk about a few favorites and changes at the Hellertown restaurant.

Sagra features a new full menu, and Cavallaro said this fall the restaurant will feature "My Mother's Recipe Box," a weekly collection of comfort foods prepared by Cavallaro's mother.

Sagra, at 620 Main St., now offers a newly renovated second-floor dining room and delivery through Grub Hub, and Cavallaro announced plans for the upcoming Sagra food truck.

Lemon Garlic Aioli

1 tbsp minced garlic
Juice of 2 lemons
Zest from one lemor for additional flavor
2 cups mayonaise

Combine all ingredients.

Salsa Calabrese

Lemon garlic aioli
3 tbsp. Harissa, more or less to taste depending on how much heat you prefer

The lemon garlic aioli or salsa calabrese can be used as a sandwich spread, a dipping sauce for French fries or as a condiment with crab cakes, mussels, clams, grilled steak and burgers.

Grilling Fairy Dust

1/4 cup granulated garlic
1/4 cup onion powder
1/4 cup black pepper

Cavallaro said the idea behind Grilling Fairy Dust came her children's visits to her parents' home, which she called Mimi’s Wonderland. Mimi sprinkled her daughter and son with Mimi fairy dust "because everything was better at Mimi’s house."

Cavalloro said she came up with the seasoning recipe and used it on steaks and burgers for "just a little bit of pizazz."
