LEGENDS…..by ISABEL

  • My legendary debut in cooking was when I was about three years old…..
    Fortunately I do not remember it…..
    My parents were entertaining…and the main event was homemade pizza…..
    I obviously wanted to participate…but the “flour” I added to the dough was Tide laundry detergent…..!                                                                     

I was never told what the guests had for dinner…..

LEGENDS…..by ISABEL

My grandmother, for whom I was named, was a legend in her own time. My grandfather did not want his sons to grow up in New York City…… so he moved the family to the countryside…. to what is now mostly Hartshorne Park near Atlantic Highlands NJ.
My grandmother was a very forward thinking woman for her times, the early 1900’s, who played ball with her sons as well as winning blue ribbons at the county fairs for her cooking.
She passed on her skills, and her passion for cooking, to her oldest son who was my father.
My father, who passed on his passion for cooking to me, earned money during his college summers by cooking on yachts and did all the cooking and entertaining in our home.

THOSE POTATOES FOR WHICH IDAHO IS SO FAMOUS…SWEET POTATO FRIES…..by ISABEL

The Sun Valley Resort is not renowned for their cuisine…..

Therefore, it came as a huge surprise to discover that they do,  indeed, have some of the best Sweet Potato Fries,  in Idaho, at the Sun Valley Golf Course Restaurant…..

Crisp, wonderfully seasoned,  and served in a special cone-shaped holder… they are worth the trip just for the experience…..

The site where this “New” golf course restaurant is located is on the original, mature part of the expanded golf course…and there is a wonderful atmosphere and spectacular views.

The Sweet Potato Fries are the best thing on the menu…so have them with drinks on the outside terrace and enjoy the  views….

They are served with ketchup…which unless you are a ketchup addict… is completely unnecessary…..
