|Kitchen at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House|
If you have the time and opportunity, please join Jane Garrett this coming November 6th and 7th for a weekend exploration of "Cooking Off the Pueblo." Jane's inspiration for this event came from Pamela Martinez, a native of Taos Pueblo, who has been cooking at the Mabel Dodge for fourteen years. Together they prepared a gourmet feast menu, featuring the following dishes: Buffalo Ragout, Harvest Stew, Green Chili Corn Pudding, Roasted Seasonal Vegetables, Prune Pie, and Horno Baked Bread.
For those of you who can't attend, you may enjoy cooking vicariously using Pamela's mini book of cookie recipes (available through the Mabel Dodge Luhan House bookstore), OR if your mouth is watering by now, create your own meal using the recipe (below) for New World Stew.
And hot out of the oven, the book Mabel Dodge Luhan in Her Own Words has just been published (also available through the Mabel Dodge). This 11 x14 inch picture book, amply illustrated, includes a timeline of Mabel's life, and excerpts from her writing about the house and about Taos.
All of this talk of food and books is making me hungry. I'm off the the kitchen to ladle out some New World Stew. Then I'll put my feet up and enjoy Mabel's newest book.
Be well. Adios for now,
