Cassava is the secret to Coyote’s gluten-free flour tortillas

Add cassava to this tortilla cabinet. A new line, Coyotas, is an alternative to flour tortillas. Uses organic gluten-free cassava flour and organic coconut oil with only water and salt. The result behaves like a flour tortilla, holds up well to fillings, and comes in three sizes: small for tacos, medium for larger tacos and quesadillas, and large for burritos and other wraps. The San Diego-based company was founded by Janet Flores Pavlovich, a native of Hermosillo in Sonora, northern Mexico, where the flour tortilla reigns supreme. He learned to make them in his hometown, and while there, he innovated using cassava flour. And in one of those happy culinary accidents like the Toll House cookie, he ended up with a gluten-free product. There are 12 in a pack of small, eight medium and six large; three packs for $37.50.

I’m not sure I gave my mom a basket of herbs and capers from the Sicilian volcanic island of Pantelleria for Mother’s Day. But for me? Anytime. John A. Savittieri, a furniture designer from Maplewood, NJ, was exploring his family’s roots on the island when he became hooked on capers, the flavorful buds of the spiny capparis flower that thrives there. A year or so, they now matter, small or small, packed with Trapani sea salt (rinsed), along with larger caper berries, aromatic dried herbs and the salt, all starting at $4.50. The $132.50 gift basket includes a ceramic caper box shaped like the island’s dammuso houses.

A new version of Pastiera di Grano, a Neapolitan Easter specialty that legend has it was created by a nun, can grace your holiday table this year. Kara Blitz, the new pastry chef at Lincoln Ristorante in Lincoln Center, makes a lovely, more delicate version than some, incorporating tiny wheat berries into an orange-scented custard filling made with buffalo ricotta, mascarpone and candied orange. Tradition says that the nun wanted to capture the orange fragrance of the convent gardens in her cake. Mrs. Blitz cooks hers in a rectangle with a top rack, enough to serve eight to ten. It’s available, reserved online, for pick-up this week through Easter Sunday at the restaurant, $42.

This column began in 1983 as Food Notes, when the Food section was called the Living Section, evolved into Food Stuff, and finally settled on Front Burner 10 years ago. It has always been dedicated to food news, culinary events, products, new wines and spirits, cookbooks and markets. After this week you’ll still be able to find me writing Off the Menu, my restaurant news column that’s expanding its reach and occasionally offering some Front Burner muscle. Pay attention to The Times’ food section online and in print.
