  4. Oh my, you creative cooks do dazzle us every time. Your dish is stunning and interesting–two elements I have come to think of when I see your name. And I already told Norma how much I loved her tembleque…can just taste it. All wonderful interpretations–and of course that inside-out chile relleno has my brain working overtime. Very nicely done. Thanks, Joan.
