This week’s FN Dish with The Amateur Gourmet, Adam Roberts, spotlights two fabulous people, Alice Waters, who is the champion of local agriculture, and Sunny Anderson, host of Cooking For Real, set to debut on Sunday, April 6 at 10:30 a.m. (set your Tivos!)
Take a minute and enjoy.
Did anyone catch the new Colin Cowie collection on HSN.com this week?
There are times when a gal needs a little comfort food and, after this week from hell, comfort was on the agenda. Nothing screams Massachusetts than a bowl of warm clam chowdah and there is NO better than Legal Seafoods.
Now that I reside in Central Florida – that’s not an option. The only other *gasp* is Friendlys and that’s only because it’s from my childhood – not necessarily an accurate reflection of true home goodness that is Legal Seafoods.
You can imagine my surprise when I found Legal Seafoods Clam Chowder in the refrigerated section of Costco. Yeah, I know – warehouse super club but still – LEGAL SEAFOODS.
So tonight, I grabbed some freshly baked ciabatta and a bowl of Clam Chowdah with a bit of added touches i.e. freshly cracked black pepper, a bit of sea salt and Italian flat leaf parsley.
Now that, my friends is a bowl of comfort.
While wandering through Costco last night (after a hellacious week), I was greeted by THE Cookbook – The Sur La Table Cookbook that I whined to y’all about having to get.
And I couldn’t resist. I had to get it after flipping through it (and it was cheaper than the full price) I think some of my other cookbooks are about to be retired. This one is a-m-a-z-i-n-g for the beginning and intermediate chef.
What’s a gal to do? I don’t, necessarily, have the patience to wait by the mailbox. I’ll just put that $24.95 towards something else fabulous for my kitchen…
As a huge lover of all things Sur La Table, I was thrilled to hear that they have their first cookbook, “Things Cooks Love” available on their website. I don’t know about y’all but I know with me – I’m not only a shoe-a-holic, but also a cookbook-a-holic. I have cookbooks scattered on bookshelves, in my kitchen, in boxes – you name it. It takes a push from above to get me to part with any of them (and yes, I did – no more Rachael Ray or Paula Deen in my house – just a personal choice – that’s all).
If you buy it today from their site – you can get an autographed copy for $24.95. Saving money too – so in the cart ready for checkout!
From their site:
