Tuesday night with the Ghetto Gourmet was another smash. It's very fun to cook this way, and I especially enjoy plating. Chef Efrain Cuevas is one talented guy, and very generous to share his personal supply of beer. I am really looking forward to getting more involved with this kick ass group of people. But apparently, many of you guys already know that, as Maura has become a one-woman promotions machine for my involvement with The Ghet. Can someone please forward me the email she's got circulating??? Some how I didn't make it onto the email list. Ha!
Check out the menu:
2 Tamales, wrapped in Banana Leaf
