Things to do on Preston Street


Want to throw together the best spaghetti aglio e olio you’ve ever tasted? Amp up this quintessential Italian favourite with specialty ingredients you can easily find on Preston Street, including truffle salt, fresh pasta and top quality olive oil and cheese. Simply cook a pound of spaghetti in boiling, generously salted water. While noodles cook, combine three minced cloves of garlic, 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon truffle salt and a pinch of red pepper flakes in a large skillet. Cook over low heat, stirring often, for about 8 minutes, until garlic is just turning golden. When the spaghetti is al dente, scoop out 1/4 cup of the cooking water and set aside, then drain the pasta. Add the pasta and reserved cooking water to the garlic mixture and toss to combine. Transfer to a large serving bowl and garnish with chopped Italian parsley, a tablespoon of fresh lemon zest and as much freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano as you like.
