Food and Wine Shopping and Entertainment
August 30, 2016
I was begininng to believe that it is foolish and perhaps pretentious and often boring, as well as damnably expensive, to make a meal of six or eight courses just because the guests who are to eat it have always been used to that many. Let them try eating two or three things, I said, so plentiful and so interesting and so well cooked that they will be satisfied. And if they aren't satisfied, let them stay away from our table and our leisurely comfortable friendship at that table.

Cooking Tip of the Month: Preparing pumpkin pie in advance

Pumpkin pie filling and pie crust can be prepared in advance, and frozen separately for up to one month. Defrost the pumpkin filling, then poured it into the frozen crust and bake as usual. If you use a glass pie plate, defrost the crust as well.
