World's of Flavor

The CIA-Greystone is world famous for the Worlds of Flavor Conference which it hosts every year. The theme of this year's conference is "Mediterranean," therefore, hundreds of the top chefs from all over the Mediterranean regions of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East bombard our campus with their talents and personalities! I have happily volunteered for Italy. We are going to be using a lot of olive oil with this crew.
This is productivity at its best. We nailed out a hundred brasciolebefore I even knew what a brasciole was. This classic dish is prepared by families for Sunday meal all across Sicily. Classically made with horse meat, we had to compromise with beef and pounded out little scallopini's which were then loaded with Pecorino Romano cheese, diced pancetta, and fresh parsley. The scallopini's get rolled up and skewered for a great protein component with ragu.
But Senora, I lika da meatballs on the spaghetti's. Soon enough said my friendly non-English speaking Michelin Starred executive chef from Sicily.

Another pig took one for the team. Loaded with split artichokes at that! Where are all the rotisserie rods?

There they are! These little lambs didn't follow Mary well enough and our Executive Chef from Greece stuffed them with Garlic and was dry aging them until they get tossed on the grill in two days. This is going to be a long and exciting week so stay tuned for all the fun. Their should be a few celebrity sightings as well!

Thanks for sharing the fun on campus this week with us!
Makes my work day pretty dull in comparison!
