Reading, PA – November 8, 2013 – Want to introduce a little South American flair to the all-American Thanksgiving turkey dinner?  A fresh, new recipe you may want to try this year is Iron Chef Jose Garces’ zesty chorizo cornbread stuffing.

Chef Garces loves stuffing as a holiday side and likes to make his own special blend of moist and spice.  According to Garces, “stuffing is always everyone’s favorite side at any holiday celebration – during the meal and for leftovers – so I always make sure to have extra on hand.  This version has a hint of spice from the chorizo, and stays super moist thanks to the cornbread.”

When cooking this special holiday dish, Chef Garces turns up his BlueStar pro appliance to provide a cooking experience in his home that can only be matched by a restaurant kitchen environment.  Chef Garces designed his BlueStar for the comfort of cooking at home – a beautiful, white 48-inch RNB model with griddle and also installed a high-performance, extraordinarily beautiful Prizer Hood in the kitchen of his country retreat – a perfect setting for any holiday gathering.  Chef Garces says he loves his BlueStar because “The precise control available to me from my BlueStar oven ensures a perfect result every time, with an even temperature throughout the stuffing.  I don’t have to worry about overly crisp edges with an underdone middle.”

Since opening his first restaurant in 2005, Chef Jose Garces has emerged as one of the nation’s leading chefs and restaurateurs.  Today, he is the owner and operator of more than a dozen restaurants in five cities.  He is the 2009 winner of the James Beard Foundation’s “Best Chef Mid-Atlantic” award and one of only a few chefs in the country to hold the coveted title of Iron Chef.  In addition, Chef Garces is the owner of 40-acre Luna Farm in Bucks County, PA, where he and his team grow much of the produce for his Philadelphia restaurants.  He is also the proprietor of one of hte nation’s best-loved food trucks, Distrito Taco Truck, which is available for private events.  His newest cookbook, The Latin Road Home (Lake Isle Press, October 2012), a culinary and cultural tour of Ecuador, Spain, Mexico, Cuba and Peru, and can be yours – click like on Facebook for a chance to win one this holiday!
