Welcome To Our Kitchen
My Famous Hot Apple Tart
I’m not a big sweets guy but I do have a handful of desserts that I enjoy, mostly during the cooler months of the year. I guess I fit the slogan that California is truly the ‘land of fruit and nuts’ because most of my favorites include one or both of these.
Coq Au Vin
While this dish might not seem likely to show up at the Tavern House, it should as it’s one of my winter favorites... the iconic ‘Coq au Vin’.
There are an endless number of types and styles of chili, but basically it all started simply as a pot of meat cooked with tomatoes and either dried red or roasted green chiles and various spices.
Cornmeal Pancakes... and Some American History
I’ve always been a fan of corn in any form, and early on in my cooking career I often created dishes built around it in its differing forms.
Cast Iron Skillet Green Chile & Cheddar Cornbread
Cornbread is one of America’s iconic foods but often it resembles a dry, boring version like those made from a box. My version is anything but boring and it’s one that I literally worked on for years until I felt it was as good as it could be.
