An Italian staple -- Bolognese Sauce. My mom grew up in New Orleans with an Italian mother (my grandmother) she was exposed to classic Italian cooking and the creole cuisine from New Orleans. Then we moved to Texas when I was a child which added another element to the mix -- Tex Mex. So, you might imagine, nothing that I cook is very 'traditional' in the classic sense. I tend to mix up an old favorite with the flavors that I remember blended in, and this is just that -- my version of Bolognese.
Chef Barbara created this Curried Chicken Salad recipe. She and I went to culinary school together a few years ago at The French Culinary Institute in New York City. We had lots of fun, long nights and hard work getting our feet wet at school and working in the school restaurant L’Ecole .
