Bonus Recipe: Oatmeal Lace Cookies
Who remembers the wonderful Vincent Price? Actor, writer, and unbeknownst to me a gourmet!
This is such a joy to leaf through. I love that each chapter begins with a copy of an original menu from some of the finest restaurants around the world. The recipes range from very simple to complex. This book was written back in the mid sixties, hence the use of monosodium glutamate in a few of his recipes, and butter, and cream.... Hey, life is too short to worry about all that! All in moderation I say!! (I'll pass on the msg however.)
This recipe was was way too easy. I was not sure what to do with myself with the extra time! The only real drawback I had is I did not have a small roasting pan. I only have a large one that I use once a year - on Thanksgiving. I improvised and used the bottom portion of my broiler pan. The directions say to turn the hens and baste with the juices....I did not really have any juices....nor did I turn the hens, and they turned out perfectly.
flambé the Grand Marnier!
