DH and I will be visiting a chronically ill relative in Cleveland over Christmas and would like to take her to at least one nice restaurant. She can only eat bland, not too chewy food. She's a temporary resident there and it will probably be her first solid, non-hospital meal in a quite a few weeks - a fish (for her) and steak place might work well. Any recommendations will be most appreciated, as will any more exotic/ethnic places DH & I might like.
We'll be staying a few days with some friends who recently moved to Providence, and would like to take them to dinner in a nice restaurant. I'm wondering Johanne Killeen and George Germon's Al Forno is as good as their cookbooks, and as the website doesn't have prices on its menu, if it would break the bank, as we're on a budget.
Any other suggestions in the area would be much appreciated.
Today's Advertising column in the New York Times is devoted to a new campaign for Duncan Hines Cake Mixes, and it includes some very substantial quotes from one of my favorite SE columnists, Jessie Oleson of Cakespy:
It also mentions that Jamie has a book coming out in October, "CakeSpy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life." I'll certainly be ordering it in advance, and I hope it will be featured in "Cook The Book" here on SE.
It's great to see talent, hard work, creativity and great baking is being recognized in the press and with a publishing contract. Congratulations Jamie!
