Happy to share my latest article on preparing seemingly inaccessible dishes at home for family and guests. In this, I prepared paella Valenciana and baked Alaska – two dishes I have never tried to cook. And honestly, I had never even eaten baked Alaska and was curious what the heck it even was! This appeared in the online version of the Albany Times Union on September 6 and will run in the print edition on September 9.
Special shout outs to my husband Chris – who took most of the photos used in the article, and for his support in all the prep. Also – huge thanks to Susan and Tom Hirt who were willing to be my culinary guinea pigs! We had a blast!
If you’d like to try and make either of these dishes yourself – please do! They’re not hard – they just take time…and a little money; the paella is a bit expensive!
