Homage To Alice Waters and Chez Panisse
What a thrill to get a phone call from my daughter. “How ’bout I make the dessert for Thanksgiving Dinner, mom?” Wonderful! I had already made countless pumpkin pies, but my lips are sealed. I am just upset that I didn’t get a shot of her lovingly made Cranberry Apple Bread Pudding. Neither did I capture any of my pumpkin pie making episodes. Next time. And easy-peasy in the Thermomix, too!
So once again I was inspired to finish the meal with the simpest of delights that we were served after dessert with coffee at Chez Pannisse. Candied orange peel and spiced nuts. I used Chinese Five Spice. Both were so refreshing, and as appealing to my guests yesterday as they were to me at Alice Waters’ restaurant. Sometimes, most times, simple is best.
