Sour Cherry Pie for George Washington

Tuesday, February 20, 2018

I always bake a cherry pie for friends and family around George Washington's birthday. My first cherry pie was a surprise I decided to make for my parents when I was nine years old and at home alone. I used my grandmother's hand written pie crust recipe from my Mom's green metal recipe box. It clearly read: 1) Sift two and one half cups of flour and a dash of salt with one cup of Crisco shortening. 2) Cut in the shortening in the flour with two knives until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some small pea-sized pieces. 3) Slowly add five or six tablespoons of ice water until the mixture holds together. Roll out two rounds on a floured board for a two crust pie.

Luchow's Cranberry Sauce

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

This time of year reminds me of late autumn in New York and the nightly lighting of the Christmas tree at Luchow's Restaurant. I discovered this recipe for cranberry sauce years and years ago at one of those unforgettable events. Luchow's was originally financed by William Steinway, the piano magnate, who had his concert hall and showrooms venue, Steinway Hall, across the street at Union Square. Music was always almost as important as the great food and every visit was a unique memory of wild game and fabulous music.
