Vegetable Tian

For years my tians looked similar — overlapping round slices of vegetables layered in an alternating pattern. After the successful variation of Patlican Kebabi, I wanted to try the same arrangement of vegetables for tian. And loved it!

Caouane. Creole Turtle Soup

For English-speaking people it might sound like “cow Ann.” So, there. It’s meat, it tastes good. If tasting blind, I wouldn’t be able to say what kind, but I’d suspect slow-cooked tough lean beef muscles or some kind of beef offal.

I was going for thick and rich Creole turtle stew. A cup of sauce left over and cooked Angus beef meatballs in it. You don’t need exotic for Texas turtle meat to enjoy this Creole creation! Cook this stew with easily available beef shanks or cheeks. This dish is perfect for cold weather.
