In the summer of 1977, Gourmet Magazine suggested this as a little lunch. Be prepared: this is a project!

Here’s the Bouef a la Mode; tomorrow I’ll post that Raspberry Bavarian.

    Oh sure. I’m going to whip that up any day now! Good heavens, I wonder how many readers made that one! Few, I’d wager.

    Was that already well towards the end of the great age of aspic? At least the cook inflicting the aspic is supposed to get it straight from animal bits, laboriously.

    “Turnip shapes” and “carrot shapes” add a touch of creepiness…

    Are you kidding me?! This recipe would be an all day affair for me – no thanks! Love your blog Ruth!

    I’d rather go to the pool or the gym instead of spending hours on this idea.
    Your just lucky you look the way you do with very little effort.
    Lots of love,
    your brother
