Curries are not only qualified by their region or country of origin but by their ingredients. That being said, no two chefs make curry the same way. How hot and spicy it is prepared, depends on who it is being made for.

My curries use less of the really strongly flavored spices including cardamon, cumin, and turmeric as they tend to dominate what ever they flavor. Fenugreek if use in excess becomes bitter. Fennel is milder than anise. Turmeric has a metalic undertone when one uses a lot of it.

Animal and laboratory studies have found that curcumin, an antioxidant that is an active ingredient in turmeric, demonstrated some anticancer effects.


Italian Night

"Eat well" - the Italians were the pioneers even to the French.

Bucatini is a thick spaghetti-like pasta with a hole running through the center. The name comes from Italian: buco, meaning "hole" while Bucatini means small hole. Bucatini is common throughout Lazio, particularly Rome.

Guanciale (Italian pronunciation: is a home cure Italian bacon prepared with pig's jowl or cheeks. Its name is derived from guancia, Italian for cheek. Normsaly, the bacon cure includes plenty of pepper and rosemary. The class will substitute salt-pork for guanciale and some other pasta for Bucatini. Adding rosemary is optional.

Recipes for Guest Night

It is all about treating your guest to a great evening. We have a very tasty authentic flavorful Mexican dip served with great chips. A soup that shouts elegance, as the French are renowned to prepare. The evening tops off with a French flaming dessert that is simple but delicious.
