At Play In The Archive
Just a quickie, People.
Remember a few weeks back when I mentioned that I was helping my friends Pauline and Liliana get started on their spectacular family food history blog? Well, they are off and running! Go visit Radici Siciliane (Sicilian Roots) and subscribe to collect the most scrumptious Sicilian family recipes imaginable. The blog includes colorful family history, wonderful archival photographs, and recipes galore. Find your stretch pants. You’ll need them.
My younger daughter, Grace, worked with these lovely ladies for two years at Half Moon Bay’s own Toque Blanche gourmet cooking supply store. As part of the job, she assisted Pauline and Liliana (along with Stuart Cristol-Deman) at cooking classes, which typically featured a full menu, plus wine pairings. Some of my most favorite recipes and techniques came from those classes, and now you can play along at home. Many, many people have suggested that Pauline and Liliana should write a book, but I convinced them that blogging was the way to go. Please go show them some love.
