On Saturday 10 March 2018, I was very lucky to participate in a really fun day of cooking, food styling, and photography. While browsing Instagram one day, I came across an advert asking people to submit their favorite recipe to be chosen to be part of the #SharedKitchen challenge, hosted by Miele Switzerland and Betty Bossi, where 5 winners would be chosen to cook a dish and have it professionally styled and photographed for their portfolio!
As styling and photography are a weak point for me, I of course mailed off a quick entry with my enchiladas recipe. Enchiladas are “ugly delicious”, a term recently coined and made popular by Dave Chang, and made into a Netflix series of the same name. I love to eat them, but they are very difficult to make attractive in a photo!
Miracle of all miracles, I won a spot in the challenge! I went off to the Miele showroom and test kitchen in Spreitenbach, a gorgeous room full of the top end appliances made by Miele. (Drool!!)
The Betty Bossi Profi cooks who assisted us in preparing our dishes were Anastasia of Ana + Nina/DishUp, Katharina, a recipe developer for Betti Bossi, and Adrian, a chef who writes and cooks as chefSKILLS. The photo of my enchiladas was styled by Claudia Schilling and photographed by Marco Zaugg. I bow in front of their skills!
If you make them, please come back and comment and let me know what you think!
and and and…..
Exciting News! I’ve begun a new venture called Lone Star Kitchen, where I will give cooking courses focused on Tex-Mex cuisine and Southern U.S. classics. I’m so excited to share this cuisine with local people in Switzerland. I love to cook this type of food, but I haven’t really shared it with you much! Now I can share it with you in person!
I will also be teaching this enchiladas recipe as part of my Tex-Mex Basics Cooking Course on 5 May 2018. This course will take place in 8427 Freienstein, ZH.
