Viva la diva

Only I could make Chicken Tetrazzini ... and then realize it was the death anniversary of Luisa Tetrazzini, the diva the dish was named after.

Seems like fate! A most fitting thing when it comes to opera.

See, she died April 28. I checked the calendar and sure enough.

Here is Luisa Tetrazzini singing with a recording of Caruso.

There is something so moving about that clip. Seeing her listening to Caruso singing ... then all of sudden makes up her mind to jump in.

She is said to have said in her later years: "I am old and fat but I am still Tetrazzini."

That is the spirit of a diva!

She lives on through her recordings, through her legend, and through Turkey Tetrazzini, or, in m case, Chicken Tetrazzini.

Try it and drink a toast to her.
