Eating (like) Elizabeth

23 Mar

To honour the passing of Dame Elizabeth Taylor, thoughts run the gamut.

National Velvet cupcakes with Butterfield 18 cream frosting?

Apple She’ll-Never-Crumble?

And what about that famous “artichoke” hairdo?

Recall the famous Chasen’s Chili cablegram while in Rome filming Cleopatra in 1962:
“The chili is so good. All gone now. Please send me ten quarts of your wonderful chili in dry ice to 448 Via Appia pignatelli. – Love and kisses, Elizabeth Taylor.”

When we think of Liz, we think luxury. And we also think of booze. Here’s a round up of Internet recipes.

Her 1988 bio/diet book contained recipes for lobster salad, dietetic chocolate mousse, and hamburger with peanut butter.

It also had this California tuna salad. We’re certain she would prefer it with poached lobster, of course.

TUNA SALAD A LA LIZ TAYLOR
1 can tuna, drained & flaked
1 t. tomato paste
2 T. mayonnaise
2 scallions, chopped
1/2 pink grapefruit, segmented with pith removed
lettuce or salad green of choice

Mix first 5 ingredients and place atop salad greens
