Now, that is a beautiful recipe. Years ago I lived in San Miguel de Allende and taught and attended cooking classes there. We used cream cheese in the walnut sauce, but your version sounds so much better. And I love ideas for using lemon verbena from my garden.

As lovely as the pictures are, none of them do justice to the ridiculous perfection of each course...The flavors were melded and sublime with a complexity and richness that was surprising. Each course was perfectly prepared and I smile when I think of how delicious everything was. The next morning, my husband and I both remarked how we would like to have the EXACT same meal was perfection...George and TJ are the most gracious of hosts, the company was delightful and the food was (always is) just sooooo damn good.

I also secured an attatchment to the center of my universe on a Labor Day weekend (12 years ago!). This looks like a great menu for such celebrations. Beautiful!

An amazing night it was, yummmm. Such a pleasure to watch the chef create her masterpiece, and by far it was better than the dish I had in Mexico City. Era una noche a recordar.

I just made this for 12 people on Saturday night - to rave reviews! I swapped pork shoulder (braised in cider and the same spices included in the recipe) for the tenderloin, but otherwise followed the recipe to a T. Many thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much for reporting back. It always brings me a little thrill to know I helped someone succeed in the kitchen!

Siiii!!! Chiles en Nogada!!!! what could be better?
