The Herbfarm restaurant is one of the finest eating establishments in the Americas, yet it remains sadly under-recognized due to the shy and retiring nature of its former head chef, Jerry Traunfeld.
As a young man, Chef Trauenfeld won the National Chicken Council’s cooking challenge to update the classic Cordon Bleu recipe. His use of fresh herbs as the breading won him a free trip to Paris and a nice check – and you can make this award-winning recipe in all of 15 minutes. :)
Proof that even authenticity can stand for a little additional shine when the change is done without altering the fundamentals of the recipe itself. Also worth noting that this recipe and others that will be posted in the future like it prove the point that authentic cooking that is also easy is not an oxymoron! :)
