Eating at the Bergdorf Goodman

Bergdorf Goodman cookbook


I ordered this charming little cookbook awhile ago.
The Bergdorf Goodman Cookbook (Harper Design, $35), written by Laura Silverman
Now that I'm back to thinking about New York, 
I thought I would bring it out again.
"Food, like fashion, is the most fun you can have with your clothes on. No wonder some of Bergdorf's best customers wish they could live inside the store...."
There once was an apartment on the top floor of Bergdorf's at one time. I hear it's gone now. 
But just imagine, Bergdorf's as your home address!
I may not get to live at Bergdorf's, but now I can make some of the most famous recipes from their restaurant. 
Who eats at this most famous restaurant? 
All the important fashion people like, 
 Estee Lauder, Chanel and Hearst!! 
Agents, editors of book and magazine industries, and local people too, 
mothers and daughter come for shopping and tea,
and of course, tourists!! 

Let's start with Hors d" Oeuvres 

Crab Cakes with Spicy Remoulade
The hallmark of a good crab cake is pristine lump crabment and little else. A BG, chunks of the very freshest crab are bound together with a little mayonnaise and panko, the Japanese bread crumbs know for thier light and crunchy texture. A dollop of classic French remoulade sauce is the perfect accessory. 

Be Inspired,
