Hi everyone! This is your friend and chef Mickey here in beautiful Mexico City. As you may or may not know, Chef Mickeys Place is closed until August 28th, and right now we are on a much needed vacation, we needed to get out of the heat and search for a place with cooler weather and boy we have found it. Mexico City is rainy and kind of cold and we are loving it!!

Ok, I’m sending this e-mail by and I phone, because I know I am at deadline. I really hope I can get it right.

How about my recipe for this month…CREAM OF HUITLACOCHE

This cream is really popular at Mickeys Place, so here it is.

2 teaspoons olive oil

3 teaspoons white onion, diced

1 medium garlic clove, diced

300 grams of HUITLACOCHE, diced

salt to taste

pinch fine herbs

2 1/2 cups chicken stock

1 liter heavy whipping cream

In medium pot, sauté onions and garlic in olive oil until lightly brown. Add HUITLACOCHE, pinch of salt and herbs. Cover and let simmer for 5 minutes. Add chicken stock, and let simmer again for 5 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Place mixture in blender, and process until smooth. Place mixture back in pan, and add heavy cream. Check out cream mixture for flavor, add a pinch of salt if needed. Serve hot. Garnish with a dab of sour cream at the center of the bowl.

There you have. It is easy and simple, yet very, very tasty. Satisfaction guaranteed!…It is simply an amazing cream, and I hope you will try this at home!! Don’t forget to stop by Chef Mickeys Place on Blvd. Fremont and check us out. Kind regards from fabulous Mexico City. Chef Mickey
