While the oven was on ...

Went to CTC last night to see their screening of The Age of Innocence, a great film by Martin Scorcese.  One of the stars of the film, Miriam Margolyes, was there to talk a bit about it and answer questions, afterward.  A good night was had by all.  In addition to the luxurious decor and costumes, the dining scenes with closeups of the lavish table settings and exquisite food, was a particular highlight for me. I have had food on the mind since.  Despite the hot weather outdoors, the oven was on today so I made the most of it.  Not quite fine dining, a la Gilded Age, but certainly passable for this day's efforts - R-L Soy Ginger Chicken Drumsticks, Spelt Bread, Rhubard Apple Crumble (using Samantha's gift of Rhubarb), Chocolate Orange Marble Cake with Fudge Frosting.
