Turkey Prince Orloff Chili
No one threw a dinner party like Mary – and no one wanted to. Her
parties were legendary and not in a good way. “The Dinner Party”
was one in a long line of exquisitely awful soirees with a Veal Prince
Orloff that was hard to forget. Our Minnesota (where Mary hails from)
chili this week is a take on that Franco-Russian dish, only we’re using
turkey in our version – we know you have too much of that around
this time of year. So put on your Russian hat and don't forget to toss
it in the air in honor of Mary and her Prince Orloff.
