Dishes not in the second edition

4 posts in this topic

Paula, congrats on an excellent new edition. Those of us who are devoted to the original are thrilled with the recipe updates (particularly the use of Moulard ducks) and additions, as well as the excellent list of sources in the back (I have already ordered from several of them).

For those who do not have the original, is there a list anywhere of the names of the dishes that were not included? While it makes sense to have removed many of them for the general audience, eGulleteers are a slightly different breed and might be interested in picking up an original edition as well.

Thanks so much for your very kind words.

There isn't a list but I'm in the process of posting all the dropped recipes up on my website.

Well, Paula, here's another request (as if you didn't have anything else to do!): that you also post the recipes dropped from the revised "Mediterranean Cooking." I don't have the original book, and the few recipes you mention in the Introduction that were dropped sound delicious (if a long way from South Beach :smile: ).

Those dropped recipes will eventually surface on my website. Actually, there weren't all that many dropped, and quite a few were added.

As I recall, among those dropped was a recipe for polvorones, another for a chicken and pancetta tart, and a three-day pasta extravaganza I learned from a wealthy Roman.
