Chef Ryan Rondeno’s Adds A Bit of
to NancysTree.org Garden Party
The highlight was my Louisiana favorite, crawfish and corn macque choux (pronounced “Mock Shoe”) with fennel-onion jam! Macque Choux is stewed corn and tomatoes and divine. Add crawfish and it is double divine! (See Chef Ryan’s Recipe below)
I can’t begin to tell you how much of a hit these appetizers were. My friend, Adriana Bate, who I met in New Orleans years ago and now lives in Los Angeles, came to volunteer with the registration. When she arrived, I told her we had a New Orleans chef making crawfish corn macque choux in the kitchen, she said, “That is my all-time favorite dish at Commander’s Palace and go get some for me NOW!” We all kept running to the kitchen throughout the afternoon to get another passed appetizer sized portion off the tray as Ryan patiently kept replenishing the tray for the waiter to pass in the VIP Suite.
Can I just say, there is nothing like a Louisiana chef to spice up a party menu! It was such a treat to have Ryan on board and his personality, great smile and energy were “Lagniappe” as we say in Louisiana. For those of you who aren’t familiar – Lagniappe (pronounced “Lan-yap”) means “a little bit extra” and saying it is almost as fun as experiencing it. It always makes me smile!
