I think that was the 3rd chef during their most recent run.

The one I make - 750g of mascarpone is used

Most restaurants use cream or go light on the mascarpone with the cream to save on cost

Re: green chile cheeseburger

LGO has a great GCC Originally developed by Doug Robson when he was with LGO I believe, correct? I always felt kinda guilty getting a burger at Gallo Blanco, but the dude makes a mean creative burger. I wonder if LGO's has wandered over the years or if it's still true to Robson's recipe. Need to gi...
