Culinary Medicine with alumna Stacy Sattovia, 2002

November 9, 2021, at 7-8:30 p.m. - Virtual Event

Please join your fellow SIU Alumni for an evening of conversation and food!  You can cook along or simply hang out. Our menu will include a delicious casserole featuring a base of polenta layered with cheese, mushrooms, spinach, and sausage and topped with soft yolked eggs. The beauty of this recipe is that any grain can be used as a base and any combination of vegetables and proteins can be added in layers. We'll discuss strategies for riffing the recipe! It makes a lovely brunch or dinner entree.
