Eastside Road, March 11, 2014—DINNER LAST NIGHT in the home of a couple of good friends who know how to make us happy at the table. Here's a big hearty dish of polenta topped with San Marzano tomato sauce, strewn with mozzarella and parmagiano, flavored delicately with oregano.
And accompanied by a platter of raw carrots, yellow bell pepper, and sliced cucumber. And then a marvelous Brillat-Savarin, with apples and good dark chocolate. Yes indeed. Thanks, Mac and Margery!
