A Truly Ridiculous Recipe

September 11, 2015

I’m not sure I even need to editorialize about this recipe, which says a great deal about what the notion of “gourmet cooking” was when it was printed, in January 1975.  I imagine Gourmet readers, with a great deal of time on their hands, spending hours making these fussy little hors d’oeuvres. Every single step is time-consuming.

It gives me great pleasure to see these old recipes. And even more to know that this is one I won’t be trying any time soon. Or ever.

Tomorrow, another recipe from the same  issue.  It may be even more absurd.
