Looking good enough to eat

Posted By on Wed, Jul 9, 2008 at 3:50 PM


Former Times colleague Janie Ginocchio, now an editor at The Courier in Russellville, sends along a fine photo of some catering fare produced by her husband Billy.

I thought I'd share a photos of a light hors d'oeuvres display Billy did for a party a couple of weeks ago while he was in town on break from culinary school. The items are a variation on an opera cake: almond cake layered with lemon mousse, amaretto buttercream and white chocolate ganache; dry cured yellowfin tuna salad (with black olives, red onions and capers with a basil vinaigrette) stuffed in grape tomatoes; a Tuscan bean salad in Chinese spoons garnished with fried sage; and seared lamb and asparagus skewers topped with a balsamic reduction and shaved parmesano reggiano cheese.

Not pictured were the vegetable bundles of blanched haricot verts, carrots and white asparagus, cut and tied with chives.  These were served with a parmesan-cracked pepper dressing.

Enough with the pictures. Send a plate.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
