Forty Years Ago Today….
January 2, 2017
Couldn’t resist trolling through the January, 1977 issue of Gourmet, just to remind myself what a different world it was. I found many ads for long-gone restaurants….
Along with a reminder that in those days travel was both safe and cheap.
Recipes, however, were often time-consuming. This issue suggested pike quenelles with shrimp sauce (an all-day project), baked Alaska, puff pastry…. well you get the idea.
It also, however, featured this recipe for a banana cake that strikes me as both unusual and appealing.
