Visiting Chef Series - Debbie Gold


Sponsored in part by the KC Originals restaurants, the Chef Mentor series brings local & national culinary artisans to the Broadmoor Bistro to share their expertise & experience.  For 2 days these food artisans work closely with our students in creating a culinary experience to share with the general public - a 5 course gourmet meal.  Tickets to the dinner event is $50 per person in advance or $60 at the door. Proceeds from this dinner benefit student scholarships for continuing education in the culinary arts. https://www.broadmoorbistro.org/reservations/add/date

March 26th - 6 PM   Chef Debbie Gold of The American Restaurant

Reflecting on a culinary career that spans two decades, Chef Debbie Gold of The American Restaurant still seeks challenges. “If you are not continually learning, then you become stagnant,” says Gold, winner in 1999 of the prestigious “Best Chef Midwest” James Beard Foundation Award

 
Gold, a Chicago native, studied restaurant management at the University of Illinois, and then attended L'Ecole Hoteliere de Tain L’Hermitage in France’s Rhone Valley. Returning to Chicago she honed her culinary skills at Charlie Trotter's then moved to Kansas City in the mid 90's.

 
Her stunning career here includes a stint at The American before opening her own restaurant 40 Sardines in 2002. Now, back at The American, her concentration is on flawless execution.  Her classical French training is melded with a penchant for local, fresh ingredients and creating food experiences that appeal to the senses & result in a heightened customer experience.  Here is the challenging 5 course menu she has planned:

 

Amuse Bouche - a tasty treat of Chef's choosing

 

Appetizer: Trotters and Toast - quail egg, caper, mustard seed

 

Salad: Radish, watercress, lebna

 

Protein: Antelope, young ginger, heart of palm, sultana

 

Dessert: Red Velvet, cocoa, cream cheese

Green Beans Recipe - Marina Grog & Galley

Green Beans - Marina Grog


In this recipe the beans first blanched and then sautéed with pancetta, mushrooms and onions, with some salt and freshly ground black pepper for seasoning. You can use thinly sliced shallots in place of the onion or substitute bacon or diced ham for the pancetta if that is what you have on hand.

Ingredients
  • 1 pound green beans, ends trimmed, strings removed (if any)
  • 2 ounces pancetta, diced very small
  • 1 large onions, chopped or 2-3 shallots
  • 1/2 pound of white mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • Freshly ground black pepper, salt

Method

1 Blanch the beans in a large pot of boiling salted water 4 minutes, or until they are crisp tender. Drain and place the beans in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.
2 Heat a large sauté pan on medium high heat. Add the diced pancetta and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the pancetta from the pan to a plate.
3 Add the onions to the pan. Cook, stirring often, on medium high heat, in the fat rendered from the pancetta, until lightly browned.
4 Add the sliced mushroom to the pan. Cook, stirring often, on medium high heat.
5 Add butter to the pan; add the drained green beans and pancetta. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir constantly until the beans are hot and are well mixed with the onion, mushrooms and pancetta. Serve immediately.
