I have the recipe and it calls for tomato soup not tomato juice. Will have to try this one. Either way the Castle was a great place!

This is totally not the recipe for loretto dressing. It was a corn starch paprika garlic slurry cooked to a thick paste then adding powdered egg yolks. vinegar romano cheese and lots of oil. never heard of hot sauce in the original chef lentola recipe

my husband worked for the Castle 7 was one of a very few who were responsible to make the week's dressing. I can guarantee that there is not ONE drop of ANYTHING tomato in the recipe. Chef L, definitely taught my hub. & i remember cleaning those uniforms after a 'loretto' day

I worked there in 1968, the recipe was so simple it was a joke:
French dressing, tomato soup, chicken base, romano cheese, mayo and a touch of the W sauce. That's It
