How to Eat an Artichoke

January 10, 2018

Leafing through an old Gourmet – February 1981 – I came upon this vintage recipe for one of my favorite soups, which was a signature dish at The Stanford Court Hotel.

A couple of years later – in 1983 – the Stanford Court would be the scene of the first major multi-chef dinner.  At the time it was considered unthinkable that a group of chefs would actually want to work together.  Or that they’d manage to make a decent meal. Almost every article about the dinner began, “Too many chefs….”

It was, of course, a fantastic evening.  And the start of something entirely new.  If you want to see the menu, look here.
