Last week, after some chatting about the long-gone department store Garfinkels (a mainstay of my childhood - really, I remember more about hanging out in the Garfinkels kids' department than I do about most of my relatives), Kate asked if I'd like to contribute a guest post to the blog. While not especially glamorous myself, most days at least, I do have a deep affection for glamour as a concept. Plus, I love the writers there. So I was psyched.
So that's how it is that I've got a guest post up on food and glamour. Here's a teaser:
When Don Draper takes his wife and clients to dinner, it’s cocktail attire at Lutece, shorthand for glamour in 1960’s New York. Dinner at Lutece was all mousseline of pike in lobster cream sauce and beef Wellington – heavy, fancy, heady, certainly French – and nothing you would try at home.
So what’s today’s equivalent?
But go read the whole thing. (Please.)
