Yesterday, Marjorie interim chef Lauri Carter shared her thoughts on leaving the restaurant industry behind. Today, she shares a recipe that she is certain to take with her. Now, with more time for intimate family meals and dinner parties with friends, Carter is prepared to take orders of a different kind.
