Chef Jose Garces At Home With His BlueStar

Want to introduce a little South American flair to the all-American Thanksgiving turkey dinner? A fresh, new recipe you may want to try this year is Chef Jose Garces’ zesty chorizo-cornbread stuffing.

Chef Garces loves stuffing as a holiday side and likes to make his own special blend of succulent and spice. According to Garces, “stuffing is always everyone's favorite side at any holiday celebration – during the meal and for leftovers – so I always make sure to have extra on hand. This version has a hint of spice from the chorizo, and stays super moist thanks to the cornbread.”

When cooking this special holiday dish, Chef Garces turns up his BlueStar pro appliance to provide a cooking experience in his home that only can be matched by a restaurant kitchen environment. Chef Garces designed his BlueStar for the comfort of cooking at home – a white 48-inch RNB model with griddle and also installed a high-performance, extraordinarily beautiful Prizer Hood in the kitchen of his country retreat – a perfect setting for any holiday gathering. Chef Garces says he loves his BlueStar because, “the precise control available to me from my BlueStar oven ensures a perfect result every time, with an even temperature throughout the stuffing. I don't have to worry about overly crispy edges with an underdone middle.”
