Sono sempre più incuriosita dal burrro home made e dalla conseguente produzione di latticello, ma ancora non ho trovato l'ispirazione per cimentarmi.


Surely try to make it one day.


You've made me want to dive into some Edith Wharton right now. What a lovely post. Maybe the queer bearded sea-things are mussels?


I know Lewis Raycie would like your cornbread. ;-)



Lovely. I read "Age of Innocence" in English class, but I'm not familiar with Wharton's other works. Maybe I'll have to borrow a copy of False Dawn from the library.

Ciao Lenny. Davvero non e' un processo complicato e certamente da' molto soddifazione.

I recommend it, Jorge. Thanks for your visit.

Thanks Rachel for the suggestion! I find myself going back to Edith Wharton's writing over and over again: I love her style.

I hope so, Paz.

The Age of Innocence is a very nice story (it was also made into a movie some years ago). I hope your library carries the book. Reading it online is not as comfortable.


Simona, what a beautiful post. I loved reading the excerpts and hearing about the interesting story. And, that supper table! My God.

Your butter looks so good. I've wanted to try making butter for a couple of years now; you're leading the way! And the cornbread AND Indian pudding sound delicious; I'm sure Lewis would have approved.

I agree that the queer sea things with beards probably refers to mussels (my two cents' worth).

Thanks for being my partner in this event!

Simona Carini

Thanks, Lisa. Making butter is really nice, so I hope you'll try soon. That description is quite incredible, isn't it? There is actually general consensus on the bearded things being mussels. You are welcome: it was, as usual, fun and pleasant.


There's nothing like Wharton's food narratives to leave you feeling fat and sated after reading them.

What a lovely, lovely post, Simona. We are hoping for a New England getaway in spring. Now I want to add The Mount to our itinerary. :}

Simona Carini

Thanks, Susan. I'd like to know if you visit The Mount.
