Culinary Institute of America Students Love Cachapas!

CIA Visit.jpgThis past Monday UC Davis hosted the visiting undergraduates from the prestigious CIA of Hyde Park, New York as part of their month-long culinary tour of Northern California.  We were delighted to be invited to create a special luncheon for them during their visit.  The menu (local, seasonal, and different):  Shots of Carrot Gazpacho, Market Salad with local greens, royal blenheim apricots, and roasted almonds, Carrot Cachapas (a carrot version of a popular Venezuelan dish), and Bing Cherry Tarts. The students had never experienced a cachapa before and they were intrigued.   I think the sweet, savory griddle cakes with a veggie base and melted cheese blew them away. From here they're off to Monterey and other cool destinations.  Sharing our wonderful produce from Yolo county and the wonderful cachapa with the world's top culinary students was blast!  Have a safe trip and we hope to see you back soon...
