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.
Of course you do! We all drink wine by the glass. But what type of glass? Now we get into matters of taste. May I recommend the Ittala Lempi?` That’s right, it is time to get rid of that long stem! You won’t regret it! I prefer the darker shade, but hey, that is just me. Enjoy!
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.
If you could choose any city in the world to have a home, which would it be? Tough call. There are some pretty amazing cities in the world. But you could still visit all of them. So which would you call home? For me, the answer is London. Why? It is home to millions of eccentric pleasures. Here is a fun travel piece about the great capital. Enjoy!
It is that time of the year again. In the middle of winter, we dream of sitting on the beach. And not alone, either. Sadly for most of us, it is just a daydream. But for millions of guys out there, SI offers the next best thing. Images of beauty that go way beyond what we deserve.
