I was looking through an old recipe folder, trying to find a clipping from the sixties, when I came upon this old menu from the seventies. Looking at these prices, I’m a little stunned; at the time I thought the Soho Charcuterie was an unimaginably expensive restaurant.

I also found this fax from my friend Marion Cunningham; I think I’d asked her for a quick and easy cake to bake for Michael’s birthday.  But I love the way she used language.

    This is one of the nicest emails I have received from you. It is highly evocative of another time and is touching in its’ simplicity (plus…I never knew what to do with cumquats) and is tempting to try.
