Guy’s Chicken with Olives and Turmeric
SERVES 6 TO 8
Do you remember classic chicken Tetrazzini? This casserole, combines cooked chicken with mushrooms, spaghetti and a velvet cream sauce, and was popular in the 1950’s but seems to have disappeared. It was created by a chef in honor of Luisa Tetrazzini, the Italian opera star whose role as Violetta in La Traviata, made her a star; she could hit high notes like no one else in her day (1871-1940).

This is an amazing dish! The lemon is the key.
