This is the first community kitchen debut for Jorge (pronounced as ‘Hor Hey’). Jorge is from Columbia and a lawyer by profession. Jorge had worked in many restaurants; for eg. Bishop, Ganache Patisserie, Joe Fortes, to name a few. The South Arm Cooking Club for Seniors is glad to have Jorge to lead the kitchen.
Jorge selected a middle eastern theme for his first kitchen. The first recipe is Cucumber and Tomato Salad with Yogurt Dressing. This is very similar to Greek Salad.
For the Salad:
- 2 tomatoes, medium size
- 2 English cucumbers
- 12 lettuce leaves for underliners
For the Yogurt Dressing:
- 3 cups of plain yogurt
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/4 cup of crushed roasted peanuts (reserve some for garnishing)
- 4 tablespoons chopped cilantro (reserve some for garnishing)
