Chapman University President Jim Doti puts on his Chef’s hat and prepares fun and healthy meals with the assistance of guest Chefs. In this episode Brenda Brkusic whips up a traditional Croatian desert called Palacinke
(crepes). While Croatian crepes can be prepared in many different ways, this version is stuffed with a sweet cottage cheese filling and includes a secret ingredient that Brenda will share with viewers. This dish can even be prepared the night before, stored in the fridge and baked in the morning for a breakfast that is sure to impress any out of town guest. Good food knows no borders and the OC will surely enjoy this episode of Cooking for Health and Pleasure! Zivili!
