Peach Cornbread Skillet Cobbler

Peach Cornbread Skillet Cobbler

Six luscious peaches beckoned from the kitchen counter early one morning, on a day that threatened imminent rain. After a quick cup of coffee, we snapped leashes on Clementine and Churchill, the youngest of our wriggling golden retrievers, and headed out before the...

Poached Pear Pistachio Tart

Poached Pear Pistachio Tart

Earlier this month, we invited some friends over for dinner at the Cape, and I wanted to make a dessert that was somewhat virtuous but with a hint of decadence. (The nearly universal donning of the January culinary hair-shirt gets a bit depressing). I thought about...

Pumpkin Cake with Pineapple Flowers

Pumpkin Cake with Pineapple Flowers

Taking a cue from Claire's recommendations on cake decorating from Bon Appetit's website, I was excited to come across edible flowers made with slices of pineapple on Pinterest. One of Claire's tenets is use only edible items to embellish a cake, and by...

Pappardelle with Pork Ragù and Burrata

Pappardelle with Pork Ragù and Burrata

This recipe was illustrated on one of Williams Sonoma's recent flyers and I was instantly smitten. Rich sauce caressing succulent pappardelle noodles topped with an unctuous burrata cheese. Gimme. Now! Off to the butcher to procure pork shoulder. The rest of the...

Black Walnut Manhattan

Black Walnut Manhattan

The Glass Onion is one of our favourite restaurants on the Cape. They don’t accept reservations, and we often sit on the screened in patio and enjoy a liquid refreshment while waiting for our table. This is no particular hardship, as their cocktail and wine list is as excellent as their food. Their Black Walnut Manhattan caught my husband’s eye, and he is pleased to report that it is as delicious as it sounds.

Entertablement Abroad – Ely Cathedral

Entertablement Abroad – Ely Cathedral

As cathedrals go, Ely Cathedral is one of the biggies. Literally, at 537 ft long, but also because of its story, which began in 672.  A lot has happened in the intervening 13+ centuries. Not just the usual political squabbling and overly ambitious clerics, but...

Entertablement Abroad – Sudeley Castle

Entertablement Abroad – Sudeley Castle

Most of the grand manor houses we see in England have a history involving a lot of ups and downs. Sudeley Castle is the veritable Snakes & Ladders of the genre. The tale began innocuously enough with a commonplace event: William le Boteler of Wem married heiress...

Entertablement Abroad – St. Malo, Brittany

Entertablement Abroad – St. Malo, Brittany

St. Malo, a town in Brittany on the northwestern coast of France, has some of the biggest tides in Europe. They can vary more than 40 feet from low tide to open sea, as you can see from views of the national fort, which becomes isolated at high tide. St. Malo is just...

Entertablement Abroad: Herculaneum

Entertablement Abroad: Herculaneum

Visting Herculaneum was one of the highlights of our recent cruise to Croatia, Montenegro, and Italy. Remember when people went on cruises and emerged unscathed, having actually enjoyed themselves? Neither do I, except I know it happened. As recently as October....

Entertablement Abroad – Burford & Chipping Campden

Let's do a little armchair travelling to the beautiful Cotswold villages of Burford and Chipping Campden. Like many people, we have postponed our overseas trips for now; I'll use the found time to catch up on photos of past trips and let the world gradually come to...
