Filet Mignon with Caramelized Onions; The Elegance of the Hedgehog — 8 Comments

  1. I LOVE that book!!! It is absolutely beautiful and I did not expect to love it as much I did. Have you read her other one, Gourmet Rhapsody? As a food lover, you will LOVE it – it’s from the perspective (s) of the food critic who lives in the same building, and he tries to capture a long-lost taste before he passes away.
    Love this meal!

  2. With summer coming up I am searching for “beach” books. My own “personal” beach has a rocky shore but enough room for my chair and me and a good book.

  3. For delightful words/sentences, I adore Ray Bradbury. Every sentence he writes is like a finely faceted gem. I can either read him in small sips, savoring every word, or in great rushing gulps, because his stories gallop along at a fierce standstill, if that makes any sense. There is no in-between. And while a great deal of what he has written is categorized as “science fiction”, it’s more about the people than the science. I don’t think you have to be a great admirer of the genre to enjoy Bradbury.
    On the other hand, my favorite summer reading is Jane Austen. 🙂 Need to decide which of the novels I haven’t read yet should be on the list for this summer. I’ll have to check out “The Elegance of the Hedgehog” some time, but maybe not for our trip.
    Caramelized onions, or even just plain fried onions for that matter, make *everything* better.

  4. Zoomie, it was a beautiful read. Steak is always good….
    Elizabeth, you’ll love it.
    Belinda, it was a surprise – the other is on my wishlist!
    Pam, it was a treat.
    Val, this will be a good one.
    Meredith, did you read it in English or French?
    Laurie, I’ve read all of his – but not for years. May have to unpack them and reread. As to Austen…. Always!
