IMG_0224He was boasting about his grandmother’s Chicken Cordon Bleu, and when he told us he would make it for us one day, we took him at his word.  Lucas wrote out the recipe, and I bought the ingredients.  Then, on a morning when we had multiple projects going, Lucas became head chef.  I assisted, and other students floated in and out of the kitchen to help pound  chicken breasts with a maul, or season the bread crumbs, or just snag a piece of cheese and chat.

Lucas himself wrote: Today at Smokey House I made chicken cordon bleu. It was easy to make. At first I thought it was gonna taste pretty weird because we had different ingredients than how I’m used to making it but it ended up tasting great.
