A big, messy, fun dinner in honor of K, here from Seattle for BEA, that started with all the food in the world — Torrisi turkey breast (so good it was almost worth its labor-intensity), butter lettuce salad with April Bloomfield’s lemon-caper dressing, la vignarola, polenta, roasted radishes with blue cheese, sautéed radish tops, and one million bottles of white wine — and ended in dancing on broken wine glasses.
When I brought this lattice-top cherry pie out for dessert (we had it with salted caramel ice cream, a favorite of mine to make), one of the guests declined a slice. I gave him one anyway, because who declines pie? Not even fruit-pie-hating M declines pie. It turned out he had assumed it was store bought and wanted to pass; with that cleared up, he had a second slice.
