Chavrie Roasted Red Pepper Quesadillas

Chavrie Roasted Red Pepper Quesadillas

By Rocco Loosbrock

 

 Recently I spoke with Chef Greg Gable who is Executive Chef of Chavrie.  Gable first acquired critical acclaim over his 13 years at Le Bec Fin, one of Philadelphia`s finest dining institutions.  He has also received several accolades such as the Philadelphia Inquirer`s 3 Bells Award of Excellence and Wine Spectator Award of Excellence.  Gable is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, N.Y.


Chef Gable has created an excellent quesadilla recipe for us called Chavrie Roasted Red Pepper Quesadillas.  It is a healthy and gourmet alternative to most recipes.  Goat Cheese contains 30% less fat and cholesterol than cow`s milk cheeses, it`s gluten-free, completely all-natural and is mostly tolerated by those who are cannot digest cow`s milk.
