Adrienne Brodeur’s Recipe for Malabar’s Power Pack Cocktail

September 23, 2019

Then Malabar ordered a power pack in her usual rapid-fire staccato: “A dry Manhattan. Standing up. With a twist. No ice. No fruit.” When the waiter tilted his head quizzically, Malabar exhaled her annoyance and repeated the order at exactly the same speed as she had the first time. I asked for a Taj Mahal […] Read More

While researching The Winemaker’s Wife, I spent time in the Champagne region of France, where the novel takes place.

Garth Stein’s Recipe for Enzo’s Pancakes

August 1, 2019

My childhood dog was an Airedale terrier named Muggs, to whom I dedicated my book. She loved pancakes more than any other food, and, in fact, her last meal was “hotcakes,” as my mother calls them.

Jenna Blum: Peter Rashkin’s Latkes with Beet Dip & Horseradish Crème Fraîche

June 4, 2019

  One of the amazing things about creating the menu for The Lost Family was reconnecting with my own. I knew I wanted the book’s restaurant, Masha’s, to be a fusion of Jewish and German food—Peter and his first wife Masha’s culinary heritages, respectively—and, since we’re introduced to Masha’s in 1965, the menu items  would also […] Read More
