LORRAINE CHEESE

UPDATE!
I just made them and they are outstanding - the cheese I think adds a nice density/a bit of a tang to them. They came out looking really pretty, too, which helps because they're for a breakfast with friends tomorrow morning. I can upload the recipe if anyone's feeling brave out there or would like to have a look at the recipe. The blueberries are so good this time of year. Kind of a nice surprise to have such an iffy endeavor come out successfully!

LORRAINE CHEESE

Yes, it's really weird! Here's what I'm doing; I purchased Emmental Swiss, and I'm going to shred it pretty finely and put about half the amount called for in the recipe. I'll let you know how this experiment turns out:)

Greygarious, the cookbook is "Country Living- Country Mornings Cookbooks." Copyright is 1989. The recipe calls for the usual ingredients; flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, milk, sour cream, vanilla, butter, light brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, blueberries, and1/2 cup shredded Lorraine cheese.

LORRAINE CHEESE

Hi all, I wanted to try a recipe from an old cookbook of mine that calls for "Lorraine Cheese." This recipe is for blueberry muffins. I'm wondering if they are referring to swiss cheese a.k.a. Quiche Lorraine? I've googled myself crazy trying to figure this out. There's an actual Lorraine brand but it's not available here in Paradise:) Can any of my foodie friends out there recommend a good substitute? Thanks so much:)

MARINE ROOM History Question....

Thank you so much, Beach Chick! That gives me an excuse to check out La Jolla Beach & Tennis next door:) I really appreciate you responding because this was just one of those things that was really bugging me! The food was outstanding and I can't bring myself to ever say a bad word about Bernard, however, I certainly understand what you mean about food getting a little over-the-top fussy. Thank you again very, very much, hey maybe I will run into you one of these days while you're enjoying the sunset:)

MARINE ROOM History Question....

Hi all,
After lusting after this place for almost 30 years now, I finally got to have dinner at the Marine Room. In additional to the cuisine, I was so looking forward to seeing this giant mosaic on the floor in the front lobby that I thought I'd remembered reading about in the Union Trib years ago. When we arrived, the mosaic was nowhere to be found. Did I dream this? Did I read it about another restaurant? Was there, in fact, a mosaic that was destroyed in one of the storms over the last years?

Weirdly enough, although there are tons of what appear to be great recipes, this particular one hasn't come up AND it's not on Epicurious or Bon Appetit.com (:

Lost! Szekely Goulash Recipe

Hi there,
I'm hoping someone has the Szekely Goulash Recipe that first appeared in Bon Appetit's January 1979 issue, and was reprinted in teh June 2006 issue. It was a favorite and I can't locate it anywhere online (: This will teach me a lesson about giving away my back issues of BA.....

Thanks much!

Does anyone know where I might buy Cacao Barry Cocoa Powder here in San Diego? I have found a source online but was hoping to purchase it locally. I've tried Whole Foods, Barrons, Do It With Icing, Ro Z's, WIlliams Sonoma - all with no luck. Thanks for any suggestions!

Canned Italian tuna?

Ina Garten made this incredible-looking tuna salad/hummus sandwich on sourdough on her show today. Just wondering where I might find canned Italian tuna in olive oil? Maybe the market in the front of Filippi's in India Street?

Thanks!

Greek Pasta Salad with Feta Dressing

Hi All,

This week I was emailed a recipe that I believe was from Chowhound for Greek Pasta Salad with Feta Dressing. When I went to retrieve it to print out and head for Henry's, it was deleted! Apparently forever! Did I dream it? Was it a cruel trick by the cosmos? If you saw this recipe, or have a really good recipe that would be similar, would you please rescue me? Because now it's in my culinary head and it won't leave....

Many thanks!
