Oink Oink

It was the roast suckling pig at a tiny tapas restaurant that did me in. Believing meat to be less healthful than other options, I had not tasted pork, beef, or lamb for over 30 years. There were no moral issues involved for me; I just tried to eat as healthily as I could.

Staying toasty in winter

Why not get right to the point? I don’t like winter. It’s an annual refrain anyone who knows me has heard. The beauty of newly fallen snow aside, there are myriad reasons for my ill feelings about this season. I’m scrawny, with little body fat. Wearing layers of shirts and sweaters indoors, especially when cooking, is cumbersome.

In lieu of a time-taking meal, the author sets out this spread of hors d’eavures to entertain guests. 

Let me entertain you

For the 20 or so years that my sister Janet and I were weekenders in this area, we found the time to entertain our little circle of friends on a somewhat frequent basis. I was cook and bartender, and Janet always did a bang-up job of setting a beautiful table and washing the many dishes at the end of a long night.

Is there an Upper Delaware Cuisine?

If you are lucky enough to live or visit the Upper Delaware Valley, you are in the heartland of some of the best culinary delights in the Northeast. Local farm bounty affords the opportunity to taste a wide variety of goods, produce, seasonal vegetables, poultry, meats, dairy and local fresh trout.

Mimi’s table

With Mimi

My sister Janet and I met Mimi in the winter of 2017 when she was occupying the room next to ours at the hotel Las Miraposas in Oaxaca, Mexico. Our rooms opened onto a small cement terrace complete with a fountain surrounded by potted flowering plants.

Panic attack

In late August, a friend and his partner sent out invitations for a Labor Day fete on Sunday, September 2. They had thrown a lovely outdoor gala for a couple dozen people two years prior at which the main event had been, amazingly (and generously) grilled lobster tails.
