Roasted Butternut Squash with Gorgonzola Cheese is a beautiful adventure for your tastebuds!
Do you know the renowned Francis Mallman? He is an amazing chef from Argentina who is an expert when it come to cooking over, under, around an open fire! It’s truly mesmerizing to watch him work… he is part of the Chef’s Table season 1 on NetFlix , it beautifully shares his passion for the outdoors, fire, and food.
Today’s recipe was inspired by this show and it’s delightful, if I say so myself! Allowing the butternut squash to cook past the roasted; going to the very toasted point brings out some really amazing flavors.
I just have to say, when I have the opportunity to dine at his restaurant in Argentina or I’m able to attend one of his cooking abroad venues, it’ll be one of the most fabulous days of my life! I think he’s THAT amazing.
