6 »NEW CASTILE NEWS, FRIDAY, AUGUST 31, 1951 POTS and PANS by Antoine Gilly Maitre d'Cuiller Monsieur Billy Rose was at La Cremaillere the other night. Since he is in the trade I wanted I to take care of his dinner myself and wanted him to get the k*nd of food that he likes. He said to me, \I would like to have some kind of seafood as an appetizer, something very sharp and well- seasoned (bien relevej, and after that I would like some Frog's Legs with a lot of garlic.\ I thought to myself that there is a man of Gastronomie because Crab Meat is\ fresh\ and very' tasteless and so is Prog's Legs. Both need some good seasoning to bring back their respective flavors. So I went into a huddle with Chef Jean and we finally decided on a lobster sauce, sharpened with some french mustard and some green peppers with a few drops of tabasco add­ ed and a spoonful of Lea & Per- rins sauce. I am certain that you can make this' lobster sauce without too much difficulty. LOBSTER SAUCE First go to your fish market and ask for stiff. lobsters. They are the ones that empty from their shells and that you cannot broil. For orte 1 quart of sauce you will need four' stiff lobsters about one pound and a half each. Cut each lobster into about six pieces and fry the pieces in hot cook ing oil. After five minutes of frying add one sliced Spanish onion, one sliced carrot, 6 garlic cloves, 6 cut up tomatoes, one bouquet garni, one small can Of tomato paste, one pint of dry white wine, one pirif; of white stock or bouillon. Let cook for 45 minutes in an oven at 350%. Crush the lobsters as much as you can and push all you can through a strainer. Add some chopped tarragon leaves and let boil for five minutes. Let this cool off and then place in the frigidaire. When you heed it you can take out such amount as you may need. This sauce may be used for crabmeat, shrimp or lobster. On top of poached eggs it is better than Hollandaise Sauce Benedictine. So with the crabmeat we served to Monsieur Billy Rose the chef added some French mustard, one spoonful of it, and one glass of dry cook­ ing sherry, one spoonful of hol­ landaise, and browned it under the broiler. I also served with it a very dry white burgundy wine (Musigny), a wine of great dis­ tinction. -At Musigny, which is a small community and wine center, the wines there are mostly red. They make only a few barrels of white, so they really put up a good white Musigny. This is one rea- -son that I have this wine in La Cremaillere's wine cellar. Did you know that melon is a gift to us from China? It was imported to Italy and France around the 14th century and brought to the U.S.A. thereafter. Right now, here in this country, I think we have the largest va­ rieties and now is the right sea­ son for ripe melons. There is nothing better than a ripe melon, especially cantaloup, red melon or Persians, with some dents in the flesh into which port wine has been poured. You let it stand in the frigidaire for one hour before serving. It is also a very good combination when served with thinly sliced Preciutto Ham. Antoine, Maitre d'Cuiller.
