If you’re BBC sports commentator Andrew Cotter, you turn to your dogs, Labs Olive and Mabel, for diversion, making short videos in which you narrate their day-to-day ...

The Splendid Table

If you're thinking of going for a slightly non-traditional dessert option this year, The Splendid Table suggests Kate McDermott's Honey Walnut Orange Pie from PIE CAMP.

We submit, for your humble consideration, a pumpkin pie alternative for Thanksgiving. This Honey Walnut Orange Pie from pie queen Kate McDermott's latest book, Pie Camp, brings a whole new life to phyllo dough. It tastes amazing, of course, with honeyed walnuts and orange zest. But the visual presentation alone is worth the effort.

I am reading “Preserving Everything” by Leda Meredith. On pg 246 (paperback) the ingredients for Elderflower Wine read: 1 1/2 pounds sugar or 1 pound honey 2 pints boiling non chlorinated or filtered water 6 pints cold non chlorinated or filtered water 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar or the juice and rind of 2 large lemons plus 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar Elderflower and a measurement of its amount appear no where in the list. After the 4 ingredients, the next thing in the page is instructions. Is this an error? Are there corrections for this book? Thx.
