Georgia Bellas’ beautiful, “Recipe for a Winter’s Day in Three Courses,” was a part of the May Issue. Here Georgia speaks on summer meals, Goodwill glasses, and endless vacations.
1. How many courses would you prepare for a summer meal?
Four, all with fresh ingredients from a farmersâ€™ market. First course, cocktails using muddled herbs or fruits paired with French bread and local cheeses and mustard; second course, more cocktails along with stuffed zucchini blossoms; third, locally made wine with locally made ravioli and freshly grated cheese; fourth, more wine and dessert, such as orange sherbet (see below for directions).
2. How would you instruct me to eat orange sherbet?
In a chilled martini glass, topped with champagne, and slowly, with a baby spoon. Also preferably outside while spying on the moon and trying to pick out constellations.
3. What does wine taste like in a Goodwill glass?
Sweeter (or dryer, depending on what type of wine youâ€™re drinking).
4. Where did this poem come from?
From a winterâ€™s afternoon on my sisterâ€™s couch mixing memories in my head like ingredients.
5. Who would you like to trap in a snow globe?
6. What vacation would you like to last forever?
The next one I take.
