"A slight adjustment: After boiling them as directed I first tossed them into the sauce and let them marinate for a few hours before broiling them. Then just before serving, I tossed them again in the sauce. Yummy!"

I have been a gourmet cook for over 40 years. In the mid 70's I owned and operated my own gourmet bistro in Connecticut called Le Petit Gourmet and also provided a catering service for upscale clientele.
I always had an entrepreneurial soul and was a front runner in developing frozen gourmet dinners. Because of a divorce, I didn't follow through which probably would have made me a very rich lady today.
In 1994, I founded the South Coast Gourmet Club in Florida, The South Shore Gourmet Club in Massachusetts and also the Chef Buddies Club.
In 2012, I was chosen as one of the 100 amateur chefs out of the 50,000 who competed nationwide, to appear on Season 3 of "Master Chef" on ABC. I didn't make it through but it was an unforgettable experience.
My signature dish is Veal Farcite which is a version of Veal Saltimbocca. My Boeuf Bourgignone is to die for. Another favorite dish of mine is Beef Cannoloni with Bechamel Sauce.
