And why Sorrento? There are a lot of nice places to visit. But Sorrento may just be the nicest.
Most of the recipes that you see are complicated. Even the ones that say they are simple often require more than 10 steps. But what about the simple stuff? That can be great too! Like coconut rice.
I have loads and loads of cookbooks. And they all offer great stuff. But one book inspires me more than any other. It is Lee Bailey’s Country Weekends. There is a certain charm in the presentations. From Saveur, perhaps this captures what I mean
It’s a heady mix of relaxed, Southern-style comfort (Bailey was a Louisiana native) and definitively 80’s glamour, with dated but charming good-life photos of sailboats, guest houses, and sunsets from private docks.
In Lee’s honor, tonight I will do his tomato soufflé.
That would be a tulip glass, BTW. I am with LAT on this one. Tulip glasses are indeed the best way to quaff.
I never used to do this. I steamed and finished with lemon and garlic. But … times have changed and I changed with them. These days, I roast. And yes, I finish with anchovy. Epicurious give a more complete recipe. Check it out!
No. I am not a surfer. But I know a cool pic when I see one and this one, from Surfer, is awesome.
