Ouh La La! I’ve Teamed Up with Mimi’s Cafe
My crazy story of living in Paris, getting homesick for Texas, and then cooking up recipes inspired by both places for my book, Cowgirl Chef: Texas Cooking with a French Accent, caught the attention of the national restaurant chain Mimi’s Cafe.
Turns out we’re of the same mindset – borrowing flavors and techniques from both sides of the pond to create new French-American dishes – and now we both want to know what you can do. Mimi’s has launched its first “French-Inspired, American Comfort Food Recipe Contest,” which runs through June 17 – and I’ll be judging the recipes.
The winning dish will be featured on Mimi’s menus at its 98 cafes across the U.S. in September, and the winner will also win a trip to Paris, France (Bonjour, la tour Eiffel!). What are you waiting for? Allez-y, people!
