This June, I had the opportunity to take a Foreign Foods class taught by 2008 Chef of the Year, Chef Tom Siegel, CEC. It was a 5 day intensive, beginning at 8 a.m. and ending between 3 and 4 in the afternoon. Each day focused on a different country or region. Monday was Greece, Tuesday was Italy, Wednesday was “The Magreb”: Morocco and Tunisia, Thursday was Southeast Asia: Thailand and Vietnam, and Friday was BBQ through the American South.
For a lesson in regional American foods this recipe comes from New Mexico. Chili Rellenos originated from Mexico but have become a popular New Mexican dish made from their very own grown green chilies. The green chilies are roasted, stuffed with cheese, then battered and finally fried.
Have your students create delicious enchiladas and learn about Mexican cuisine.
