Crȇpes Suzette

This is a great holiday brunch/breakfast dish. It is a classical French recipe and a very sweet dish so have a sweet tooth ready for this recipe. I first prepared this dish when I worked at the Hotel Boulderado in the early 1980s. The restaurant was called the Fleur-de-lis at that time, but over the years the name changed and the style of food changed to meet customer demands. This was the first French restaurant that I’ve worked in, as I learned more and more about classical cuisine it convinced me that becoming a chef is what I wanted to do professionally, helping me make the decision to attend culinary school. I believe the restaurant is called The Pine Street Cafe now. Truly the Boulderado has so much history it is a place everyone should visit.

BBQ Pork Tacos

Yeah, I will make a taco out of just about anything ... But when a friend of mine from North Carolina made BBQ nachos, my head exploded. The first time I watched him whip up a batch of those for our staff lunch I thought it was six kinds of wrong, but they were delicious and we ended up making them often! 

The taco version became a common dish in my house following an incident with a smoked pork shoulder that we ate, then ate again, and even once more -- by the fourth eating I twisted it into bbq tacos, best made with leftover pulled pork!

It’s a mess, but they’re good taco fun! Enjoy this recipe on National Taco Day coming up on Sunday, October 4th!

Stuffed Poblano Peppers

We love this dish.  It’s super easy to make and packs a lot of flavor.  It’s very versatile and can easily be made as a vegetarian meal. You can easily play around with this dish to make it your own with different stuffings and seasonings.  Poblano peppers are mildly spicy peppers and are in season right now.

The U-Engage! Book Club is excited to announce our pick for October: Code Name Hélène by Ariel Lawhon

This book is based on the life of Nancy Wake, an Australian expat who worked as a reporter for Hearst in Paris just before WWII and later as a spy for the British. Lawhon throws readers into the middle of the action, as Nancy, under the alias Hélène, prepares to parachute from an RAF plane into France to help the Resistance in 1944, carrying in her head memorized lists of vital data, including bridges targeted for destruction and safe house addresses. After she lands, the story flashes back eight years, as Nancy struggles for respect and recognition as a journalist; despite her firsthand observations of Nazi brutality in 1930s Vienna, her editor is reluctant to publish a story about what she's seen. Frequent jumps in time draw out the arc of Wake's remarkable life; despite her statement early on that women's weapons of warfare were limited to "silk stockings and red lipstick," by the end she's proven herself skillful at physical combat as well.

 

At this time, participants will be responsible for obtaining a copy of the book. You can vote for future books by signing up. You are welcome to participate in discussions even if you do not sign up. 

We plan to have a casual first meeting today, September 30th from 3:30 PM - 4:00 PM to get to know people and set ground rules. Zoom link for Wednesday September 30th.

We will meet on Wednesday, October 28th from 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM to discuss the October book. 

Please reach out to Devon Duncan or Karrey Van Sky if you have questions.

Gin-Gar Chicken

This recipe comes from one of my favorite cookbooks “The complete garlic lovers cookbook” from the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Gilroy, CA which is a small town about 35 miles south of San Jose. At one point it was considered the garlic capital of the world. Many of you may be familiar with Christopher Ranch garlic products in our local supermarkets. Garlic requires 9 months to grow. Harvest season runs from late June to early September which leaves 3 months to pack, peel, and store a year’s worth of garlic, which is approximately 100 million pounds of garlic!
