West Coast American Tetrazzini is a handy recipe to keep on hand for when you have leftover chicken or turkey. I suppose you could use any poultry, really, duck, goose, even wild game poultry. However, usually tetrazzini is made with chicken or turkey meat.
West Coast American Tetrazzini originated in San Francisco, just after the turn of the 20th century, created by Ernest Arbogast, the chef at the Palace Hotel. It is supposedly named after Luisa Tetrazzini, an Italian opera star who was a longstanding resident at the Palace.
There are lots of variations on the dish, but this one is quite mainstream. I put peas in my tetrazzini, some do not, preferring peas as a side dish. I also prefer using chicken over turkey – I think chicken meat is tastier.

Andorran Escudella is a national favorite in this small country. Escudella originated among the
Catalan people, and some historians claim it to be the first referenced soup in Europe. Andorrans adopted the basic stew recipe and modified it more to their favorite tastes and ingredients. For as long as modern day natives can remember, Andorran escudella has been a revered “special occasion” dish, traditionally served on Christmas.
Very rich, filling and fatty, it features several different meats and animal parts. Some variations include meatballs. Always, however, it is spiced with parsley and garlic – lots of garlic. Andorran escudella also contains plenty of vegetables, which may vary depending on the season. Cabbage, carrots, celery, parsnips and potatoes are common ingredients. It can be served as a soup, or boiled down to more of a stew consistency. Sometimes Andorran escudella is served ladled over a bed of rice in a deep bowl. This recipe calls for rice – and pasta – as inclusive ingredients.
