Food and Law

January 1, 2011 1 comment

I closed 2010 with a post about food. I may as well open 2011 with another food post, or what’s really a plug for the newly published article by my fellow blogger and e-pal Leslie. She’s a much better writer, as you can see by comparing the lame title of this post with the title of her article, Justice is Served.

What Leslie writes about is a dinner she prepared for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Since Leslie is both a lawyer and a chef, this was a most appropriate activity. And it may also be why she came up with such an apt article title. (Then again, her title reminds me of the famous Twilight Zone TV episode To Serve Man. Watch out, Ruth! She may have a hidden agenda.)

I won’t quote from Leslie’s piece, since it’s short and you should read it in full. If you want to know more about the meal, head over to Leslie’s blog for an accompaniment.

Here’s what Ruth missed by not dropping by our house today:

The picture is a little too small, but if you look closely, you’ll see that it’s a box of Hebrew National’s Beef Franks in a Blanket, described at the website as “the ultimate hors d’oeuvre. … the only frank in a blanket made with kosher beef and wrapped in a delicate puff pastry.”

I think she would have liked them. You can take the girl out of Brooklyn, but you can’t take Brooklyn out of the girl, right?
