Bay Area Power Couples: Michael & Jacky Recchiuti of Recchiuti Confections

It's hard to start a business in the Bay Area. And even harder to make it successful. We're inspired by the couples who have done it together and have decided to highlight them every week in our "Bay Area Power Couples" blog series.

The first time Michael and Jacky Recchiuti met, they didn't hit it off. Then, on a blind date, they met again and realized they actually liked each other. Clearly meant to be together, they channel their chemistry and boundless creativity into making the chocolates and treats in the Recchiuti Confections family.

Secret Recipe: Eggplant Caponatina from Beretta

7x7 asks the city's chefs for the recipes to their most loved cocktails, bar snacks, starters, mains, and desserts. If there's a dish you can't stop thinking about and want to make at home, email lauren@hartlemedia.com. Your wish may end up on the blog, along with the actual recipe from the chef.

At Beretta, antipasto like chef Ruggero Gadaldi's light and nutty caponatina whets the appetite before the heart of a meal (pizza) arrives. Serve it warm or cold on a platter with a couple of spoons and toasted bread at your upcoming holiday party. Or keep it all to yourself.

Let it Snow! (At the Hyatt)

If you're an East-Coast transplant bemoaning the lack of snow here during the holidays, here's a little piece of home: There's a winter wonderland right here in San Francisco, next door to the Embarcadero ice skating rink in the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Here, you can drink hot chocolate and watch snow falls three times a day (at 4pm, 6pm and 8 pm) amongst 300,000 sparkling lights.
