This Trifle is No Trifle

December 29, 2017

It’s cold. So cold.  What better way to while away a bit of time than leafing through old issues of Gourmet?

Came upon this trifle in the December, 1983 issue.  Trifles aren’t supposed to be complicated but this one is a serious project. Perfect, in fact, for a day like today.

To my surprise I also came upon a recipe request from one of my mother’s best friends. Lucy lived up the street from us, and I loved going to her house for dinner; she was a fantastic cook. I should have known she subscribed to Gourmet.

And finally, an irresistible ad. If only I’d had the money, back in 1983, to attend one of Marcella’s classes!
