Let's talk about pies. Vintage pies, that is.

The Blue Ribbon Recipes one is also fab.

For Gastronomos and other lovers of Greek food.

Are we part of the solution, then? (Cavafy reference department.)

Linguafood and buttertart and a weekend in Philadelphia...

It was fun but the food was wildly uneven and too expensive for what it was. Had we been by ourselves, it would have been a big disappointment. Great company made it much more tolerable!

Thanks!

I also enjoyed the schnitzel, which I had with German potato salad that bore very little resemblance to any I had had before and was just passable -- I was eyeing lingua"s fried spuds and wishing I had ordered them) and sauerkraut. The aforementioned hubster had 2 kinds of sausage, which he liked a lot, with sauerkraut and red cabbage (going for the cruciferous vegetable eating award, it would seem). We sort of shared a really sweet custard/zabaglione with a pleasant crumble on top, which also bore no resemblance to any German dessert I had ever had, and was new to lingua as well. A pleasant meal (especially after the bachelor party left).

Is there a recipe for this that would be good to try?

You are right. My only beef with the food was that most of it was not hot enough. That raviolo certainly was, though.

Still under the weather (and under the doctor, as the English say). Sinus and upper respiratory tract infection, antibiotics, nose sprays, the whole nine. Don't expect to be baking anything much. Waaaah again.

I had that happen to a Maida Heatter brownstone chocolate loaf cake -- turns out I has reversed the amounts of baking soda and baking powder. WHAT a mess. I salvaged it by icing it with a whole bunch of whipped cream. Looked rather glamorous. I thought it tasted a little soapy but it didn't seem to bother anyone else. (I have also had it happen when I've misjudged pan size...so annoying.)

Linguafood and buttertart and a weekend in Philadelphia...

Our husbands were at conferences, so some of this is joint and some not.
The first night we ate at Sang Kee Peking Duck House, on the recommendation of my Singaporean hairdresser, who drives down from NJ to eat there. The duck was very good.
The next day we had lunch at Rangoon, and particularly the tea leaf salad.
That evening we had a tasting menu (together) at Marigold Café. The chestnut raviolo was my favorite. The cooking was inventive and fun, but I'll let Lingua give the whole rundown here. Beaucoup BYO wine was happily put away.
The next day, lunch was Xi'an food at Sizzling Woks -- particularly enjoyed the liang pi, I had a dark chocolate and a pistachio ice cream at Bassett's on my way back to the hotel, and dinner was together at the Brauhaus. Very good German food and what a freaking beer list! (Meine Deutsche Freundin...details are yours...).
Sunday, lunch at the Khmer Kitchen was the highlight for us -- chicken salad, grilled steak, quail, tart shrimp soup...could we have a Cambodian place here, PLEASE? Pics are from that meal. Un régal.
