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

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

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...

Entertablement Abroad – Quick Packing

Entertablement Abroad – Quick Packing

Good morning to all, and Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends. This is a quick post on quick packing, very much to the point as I'm currently in Venice, bags packed and ready to embark on an eight-day cruise down the Adriatic. This is a first for us, as the...

Entertablement Abroad – Harewood House

Entertablement Abroad – Harewood House

"Where shall we go today?" was the question. Our three weeks in England were almost at an end and we – Glenn, that is – had done a lot of driving already, so I was hesitant to suggest Harewood House, almost two hours from our self-catering cottage in Derbyshire. He...
