Ditalini and I drove to Las Vegas last week to visit our children, Baguette and Escargot. High on Escargot’s list was learning to cook two of Ditalini’s favorite recipes, stuffed grape leaves and chicken tajine. With a little coaching from the sidelines, Escargot did it all, as you can see from the photos below (left, Escargot showing off her form; center, Escargot & Mortadella’s re-creation of a 1950s Good Housekeeping photospread; right, Escargot’s fabulous dinner):
We’re proud of our little Escargot . . . she’s definitely a deMenthe!
