Continuing with the fashion-food theme of the past week, I thought a few of the killer frocks donned last night at the Golden Globes were certainly worth a quick mention...as is my friend Courtney's AMAZING truffled egg toast appetizer (a recipe straight from the cookbook of one my hands-down favorite NYC restaurants, 'inoteca on the Lower East Side).
Even with Ricky Gervais hosting, the multiple pleas for Haiti and mentions of NBC's blown contract with Conan, and of course Kate Hudson's stunning stark white Marchesa gown...the truffled egg toast absolutely stole the show. If you're looking for an easy appetizer guaranteed to make some friends very happy, this is definitely it. Wondering what's so special about toast, eggs and a little fontina cheese? Yet again, simple ingredients, accessorized by a bit of truffled olive oil and asparagus, come together as major standouts and become something indulgently rich. Serve up the toast and cut it into bite-sized pieces to keep calories in check and you're ready to eat.
So here's the recipe and a few of my favorite dresses from the evening. And as a quick side-note, Courtney's talents extend beyond the kitchen.
