Eastside Road, November 2, 2016—
A NIGHT WE are unlikely to forget: after 108 years, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series. And in the seventh game of the series, and in the tenth inning, and in the opponent's yard, and having been down three to one.
We dined while watching the game, in a sort of potluck — the neighbors down the hill joined us, bringing their own mole whose fragrance joined that of Cook's chile wonderfully well.
And dessert! A fine cake, recipe from David Lebovitz's online blog: I taste flour, egg, citrus, apple, marzipan — a cake rich as baseball. What a night.
