Aint that a pretty picture? Vincent didn’t suggest serving it like this but I was in a frivolous mood. Very nice it was too.
After work this evening I had a quick cocktail with Elinor at Bourne & Hollingsworth, my current favourite drinking establishment. I took along a copy of “A Treasury of Great Recipes” to show her and she was very taken with it. She said that the cover looked like a “coffee and chocolate parfait” and indeed it does. It is so squishy and cushion-y and lovely.
I love this composite picture from YesterYearsGoodies and of course agree that it is “one of the most elegant cookbooks of all time!” It is keeping me entertained almost every single day!
For those of you that frequent the Silver Screen Suppers blog, just thought I would post this picture of a halibut. Oh my good gawd!
This month’s recipe of the month is for Bette Davis’ Creamed Halibut with Boiled Onions. I wonder how many this would serve?
Recipe from: A Treasury of Great Recipes. Sardi’s – thank goodness – is still going strong but I couldn’t see Asparagus Milanese on the menu they have online. But I reckon they would rustle it up if I ever make it over to NYC and order it in advance…
