Quote for Today: “A truly destitute man is not one without riches, but the poor wretch who has never partaken of lobster.” Anonymous National Lobster Newburg Day Today is Lobster Newburg Day. I have seen this dish spelled both Newberg and Newburg. Which one is correct may be argued endlessly. The dish itself had been popular from the last half of the 19th century through the 1960’s and 1970’s. Nouvelle cuisine and health consciousness may have taken it off many restaurant menus, but it is still a wonderful dish that can be found at some establishments.   The true creator of this dish may never be known, but the account I enjoy the most involved a wealthy sea captain by the name of Ben Wenberg. In 1876, he came home to New York and entered Delmonico’s Restaurant proclaiming he...

St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations Quote for Today: May the luck of the Irish be with you! St. Patrick’s Day is March 17 with celebrations in Irish Pubs and restaurants across the United States.

Today is National Peach Melba Day. This delicious dessert was created by the world famous Savoy executive chef, Auguste Escoffier in the late 1800’s. He named it Peach Melba in honor of Australian operatic soprano, Dame Nellie Melba. History In 1892, Nellie Melba was performing in Wagner’s opera Lohengrin at Covent Garden. The Duke of Orléans gave a dinner party to celebrate her triumph. For the occasion, Escoffier created a new dessert, and to display it, he used an ice sculpture of a swan, which is featured in the opera. The swan carried peaches which rested on a bed of vanilla ice cream and which were topped with spun sugar. In 1900 Escoffier created a new version of the dessert. He omitted the ice swan and topped the peaches with raspberry purée. Other versions of this dessert use pears,...

National Bouillabaisse Day: Food Holidays

Posted by on Dec 14, 2016 in Books, Food, Food Blog, Road Trips R Us, Roadtrips R Us, Roadtripsrus, RoadtripsRUs.net, Travel, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Quote for Today: “Bouillabaisse is only good because cooked by the French, who, if they cared to try, could produce an excellent and nutritious substitute out of cigar stumps and empty matchboxes.” Norman Douglas, British novelist (1868-1952) Today is National Bouillabaisse Day. I honestly have never been to a restaurant that offered this classic provencal fish stew from the port city of Marseille. While in California, I had the good fortune to eat Cioppino at a couple of great restaurants that sold dozens and dozens of them everyday. The only problem that occurs is when you can not find a place that highlights their menu with a great fish stew. Odds are you are then better off making it at home. The recipe I am giving you is just a guideline. In no way shape or form is this...
