By Jim White, Casa Vieja
Exuberant chef and local radio/TV celebrity Jim White presides over Casa
Vieja in charming Corrales, New Mexico. Chef White creates what he calls
"progressive regional" cuisine, inspired by generations of New Mexico cooks
and personal family recipes. Casa Vieja is a 300-year old example of
Spanish Colonial architecture and a dramatic backdrop for White's
ever-changing regional dishes. Built near the time of the founding of
Albuquerque, the old house allegedly hosts a ghost or two.
