MADELEINES AUX TRUFFES

MADELEINES AUX TRUFFES

I was in Paris about seven years back and spent a really terrific day with Paule Caillat and her Promenades Gourmandes cooking class and walking tour where I first learned of Madeleines Aux Truffes (there's a really cool video of her class at http://www.babelgum.com/3016113/paris-promenades-gourmandes.html – but do note Paule is completely fluent in English).

With "Rockefeller" and "Casino" in the names of these two classics, I was going to go with a cutesy title for this post like Millionaires on the Half Shell, but that was a bit too twee, even for me. And these time honored classics really don't need any further gussying up. Oysters Rockefeller or Clams Casino served on their […]

Histories of olde New York tell how our waterways were originally paved with oyster reefs, from Sandy Hook all the way up to Ossining.  So common, they were considered poor people's food (as were lobsters out on the east end of Long Island back in the day…).  In our time honored fashion, this abundant resource was pretty much depleted by the early 1900s, […]

PERSIAN GRAPEFRUIT MARMALADE

PERSIAN GRAPEFRUIT MARMALADE

  I met my friend Sherry Akbar at Good Housekeeping and she introduced me to this recipe for grapefruit marmalade.  For the twice-annual High Point furniture markets, she, the decorating editor, and I, advertising/marketer, would be the two man delegation representing this 4.6 million circulation title as we toured all the show rooms, meeting up with teams of six, eight, 10 or […]
