Sunday Salon: Lynne Barrett and John Dufresne
On February 1st when the fervor of football ruled, Marianne Haycook, artist, friend and neighbor hosted a party for two Lynne Barrett and John Dufresne, authors and Creative Writing Professors from FIU and both are dear friends and great writers. They each read memoir for the group, and John also read some fiction from his new book: Requiem Mass: A Novel.
Here’s the menu:
A mixed salad
I cooked the following dishes:
(with crab meat)
(soprassata stuffed with marscarpone and a pimento stuffed olive)
(ricotta, mozzarella, parmigiano, eggs, pine nuts, ham, and salami) Regular crust
(prosciutto, ham, salami, ricotta, parmigiano, eggs, mozzarella, Swiss, Romano) Sweet crust
(If you don’t know what’s in it, forget it, and cancel it from your repertoire)
(squiggly pasta, ricotta, parmigiano, mozzarella, sausage, tomato sauce, cream)
Sausage, potatoes, peppers and onions
There was also homemade flan, brought by Charlie and a chocolate layer cake, vino, coffee and tea.
Next party is going to be at the beginning of May and will feature book artists: Marianne Haycook, Carol Todaro and John Cutrone. To get on the guest list if you happen to be in town, …write me.
