sharing (Italian) food to enjoy life

A Master Chef from the Canadian Institute of Culinary Arts & Science

Posted by Jim Carfrae on November 26, 2009

Humber College has the largest cooking school in Canada. My company has a relationship with them that lets me visit and enjoy; the facilities and professors are outstanding.  Anyway… I have a program for which master chef Leonhard Lechner is developing some simple serving ideas and recipes for me – I get to sit in the restaurant and he serves me 10-15 amazing things, one after another. 

One of his ideas I have to share right away as we approach the holiday season.

12 Slices Pancetta (thin sliced)
2 Cups Romaine lettuces
½ Cup Caesar dressing
¼ Cup Parmesan cheese (fresh shredded)
    Herb-garlic croutons
  1.  Turn small muffin tin upside-down and apply one thin slice of pancetta on top of it.
  2. Bake in oven at approximately 350 /375F till crispy.
  3. Remove the crispy pancetta cups from the cups and stuff them with Caesar salad and garnish.

Amazingly for a master chef, Leo made one huge mistake on this simple idea – 12 won’t be nearly enough!
