An article written by Amanda Hesser with a recipe by David Lebovitz? I am so psyched! In her Recipe Redux column, Amanda Hesser wrote about Maida Heatter’s popovers and asked David Lebovitz to update the recipe. Both versions sound great-I am torn about which to try first.
I love the idea of finding great, older recipes, trying them, and tweaking them. I tried peppermint candy from this column before and loved it. I have some of my mother‘s, and grandmothers‘ recipes. I love their versions (usually) but I do like to update them a little and change them because of the ingredients I can find or my personal tastes.
I like to think of recipes as a starting point and enjoy changing them.
