    Hello Chefs
    I am the wife of a chef..oh the joy! Lol.. he has applied for executive catering chef job.
    The director is asking for a five course meal and she mentioned something like "anestos" "Ernesto".. He said she has a heavy accent so not sure but we have googled it all and nothings clicking as one of the courses. Does this sound familiar to anyone. Also any try out suggestions. His boss to be HOPEFULLY has worked with chefs such as Bobby Flay and I think he feels a lil intimidated but he is great..just trying to boost the confidence a lil..HELP! LOL

    An Intermezzo is normally served before the entree to clear the palatt  It could be lemon sourbet sered in a hollowed out lemon with a live daisy in it. or aice of some flavor served in a cordial glass.
