The Victory Garden

Episode #2420

Chef Marian Morash discovers the possibilities of avocados when she visits two towns in Southern California. Encinitas, just north of San Diego, is home to a production grove where the `Hass' avocado is grown and harvested. In nearby Rancho Santa Fe, Chef Marian enjoys a cook's lunch with Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken, authors of the current best-selling cookbook, "Too Hot Tamales." Over a luncheon of savory avocado dishes-Tomatillo Guacamole, Avocado Corn Salad, Chilled Cream of Avocado Soup, and Avocado Frappe-the chefs enjoy engaging in a little dish.
