Over the weekend, I had recorded a new show from The Cooking Channel called the Urban Grocer. I had no idea what the show was about, but it sounded interesting. The host of the show is Caitlin Zaino. After reading her bio, she is a foodie, turned food blogger, world traveler and now has a show on the Cooking Channel (I’m only a little jealous 🙂 ).
The episode highlighted foods from Buenos Aires and one of the things that was made was chimichurri. I’ve never made it before and went to my friend Google to search for recipes. Wow, there are tons of different variations of this recipe! I took some ideas from some, and combined together what I thought sounded good.
Isn’t that a gorgeous color??
What I did:
In my blender I threw in
1/2 cup fresh parsley
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 cup of olive oil
1/2 fresh lime juice
few sprigs of fresh rosemary
few sprigs of fresh thyme
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
4 cloves of garlic
Blend until its smooth like in the picture above.
Then, all I did was dice up some chicken, pour the sauce on it and that’s it! I served it with rice, although you could throw it in a tortilla. I had a little left over so I served some over pasta for my lunch today.
Have you made Chimichurri before? What do you put it on?
On another note, how come I live 8 miles from downtown Chicago and I’ve never heard of this place?
It’s highlights Kenmore appliances, but also has this:
Launched last year at the corner of Wells and Huron, the venue offers patrons an interactive experience with Kenmore products and often has scheduled presentations, including cooking demonstrations, new product unveilings and appearances by well-known Chicago talent.
Entry is free and open to the public from Thursday through Sunday, 6 to 9 p.m., as well as 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the weekends. Visit Kenmore’s Facebook page for more information and upcoming events.
Any Chicago locals been there? I’m totally going to check it out the next time a celebrity chef is there!
