THIS WEEK: Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese Strudel from Andiamo Restaurant in Lambertville, N.J.
We love it when we get requests from our readers for recipes! Here’s one we recently received for this Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese Strudel from Andiamo Restaurant in Lambertville, New Jersey. Chef Jean Giunta cut her teeth in the kitchen learning from her Sicilian mother and French grandmothers. She prides herself in making her guests feel well-fed and cozy. You can do the same in your own home with these step-by-step instructions to the perfect strudel!
About the chef: A proud graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., chef/owner Jean Giunta fine-tuned her technique and cultivated her professionalism at the elegant Creek Country Club in Locust Valley, New York; the well-known restaurants of Rockefeller Center in New York City; and as executive chef for some of Manhattan’s most successful large corporations.
Giunta’s passion, education and experience have enabled her to accomplish her life-long dream of owning and operating a restaurant in the country setting of Lambertville, N.J. Customers can enjoy tempting creations using the freshest and finest ingredients, in the cozy, intimate atmosphere of Andiamo Restaurant. Giunta has been proudly serving her loyal customers since 2001.
