Ellise Pierce / Cowgirl Chef. Texas Cooking with a French Accent

I recently took a class at our local Central Market . The class was Hatch Chiles with a French Accent , taught by Ellise Pierce. She is the author of  Cowgirl Chef, Texas Cooking with a French Accent.
I purchased her book several months ago and was pleased to see that she was teaching at Central Market. The class was so educational, fun and Ellise made it a memorable experience.

The menu included the following dishes:

Green Chile Gougeres
Southwest Gazpacho with Green Chile Granita
Green Chile Granita
Roasted Corn, Yellow Squash and Green Chile Galettes with Avocado-Jicama Salsa and Margarita Shrimp
Avocado-Jicama Salsa
Fig and Green Chile Tartlettes
Margarita Shrimp
Buttermilk Ice CreamCroustade Dough

I don't feel that it's appropriate to post the class recipes
You can certainly purchase her book.

Ellise is very personable and her class is fun.
I would definitely take another class with her.

I've included some photographs from the class, photographs of some of the dishes and her book that she autographed for me.

Peace in the Kitchen!
