Apricot Mango Chutney is a deliciously festive appetizer or it can be served as a side dish too!
I first fell in love with chutney’s in one of the classes from my Culinary Arts Program. I’d tried chutney before at Indian restaurants but I had no idea how much I would LOVE making them until this class.
In Garde Manger with Chef Franz we made everything from Chutney to Sushi to to sandwiches/salads to Apple Birds…
All the ladies in our entire school absolutely loved Chef Franz… he’s just that kind of Chef! I think the guys thought he was pretty cool too but most of them probably wouldn’t admit it 🙂

Each group of students in our class made there own spin off a base recipe… it was fun to taste the flavors that complimented each other and even the ones that didn’t quiet work so well. It’s always fun to experiment and expand your flavor palate.
This Apricot Mango Chutney was my spin off and I’m quite in love with it 🙂
Much Love and Peace~
