D is for Dinner: Looneyspoons redux
This week, D is for Dinner moves from the studio to an actual kitchen -- Alan's actual kitchen, in fact. That's where the best-selling recipewriting sisters Janet and Greta Podleski, who started their enterprise here in Ottawa nearly 20 years ago, came to showcase a recipe from their new Looneyspoons Collection.
Alan was pretty excited about this, because their book Crazy Plates back in the mid-90's was what got him into cooking, and he still relies on it heavily to this day.
The sisters have collected recipes from their three cookbooks, and revamped them in the new 300-page 'greatest hits' package. As it turns out, when they came to town, Alan was supposed to be making the Mulligatawnski recipe, so he certainly lucked out when Janet and Greta offered to make the new version instead.
So there in Alan's kitchen was perfectionist chef Greta, and punmaster nutritionist Janet...he just wishes he'd sharpened the knives before they got there...
...And here are some photos of the sisters in Alan's kitchen.
