Escoffier strikes again!
IT’S NATIONAL CHERRIES JUBILEE DAY!
Auguste Escoffier, creator of Peach Melba among other SPAK food holiday foods, created the Cherries Jubilee in honor of Queen Victoria’s jubilee. She reigned from 1837 to 1901. Secret to longevity? She really liked cherries.
So we thought to honor this day by having a recipe from the very American (non-French, non-British) chef Paula Deen.
Seriously, where would Escoffier have been without ice cream…
Tomorrow is National Crabmeat Newburg Day and National Lobster Day!
