A Focus on Plate Design
James Briscione

sight plays in the enjoyment of a meal. In this class, two-time "Chopped" champion James

Nick Malgieri
Friday, September 8, 6-10:30pm
$115 F 1 session
In the mid-sixties, Julia and Paul Child built a small house on property
belonging to coauthor Simone Beck's husband. Right above Cannes and
outside the village of Plascassier, the Childs' house, La Pitchoune ("little
one"), became their retreat for vacations and holidays for many years. Julia
loved cooking there with "tomatoes, garlic, and wild herbs," and
frequently entertained visitors such as James Beard. Join ICE baking programs founder Nick
Malgieri for this year's tribute-to Julia's 105th birthday-featuring a menu of Provençal
specialties garnered from Julia's books and Nick's recipe collection. Menu selections include:
Vin d'Orange de Bramafam (white wine scented with orange and cognac); Pissaladiere Niçoise:
(onion and olive "pizza" on a yeast dough); Soupe de Poissons a la Marseillaise (saffron, garlic,
and tomato-scented fish soup); Ragout d'Agneau a l'Arlesienne (ragout of lamb and herbs in a
white wine sauce); Tian de Courgettes (gratin of zucchini, onion, and tomato); Salade aux Fines
Herbes (butter lettuce salad dressed with Provençal olive oil and herbs); Tarte au Citron à la
Cannoise/Tuiles au Beurre (lemon tart and delicate almond cookies from Julia's favorite pastry
shop in Cannes). Rosé de Provence will accompany the meal.

Cocktails and a Classic Movie: The Thin Man
Daniel Stone
Friday, September 8, 6:30-10pm

The Best Picture Academy Award-nominated film "The Thin Man" was the first in a series of
six madcap murder mysteries featuring a husband-and-wife sleuthing team, Nick and Nora
Charles (played by William Powell and Myrna Loy). The film's 1934 release-just after the
repeal of Prohibition-gives us the perfect excuse to celebrate with a series of classic cocktails.
With Daniel Stone, we'll enjoy a meal of dishes and drinks inspired by the movie. First we'll
learn to mix three cocktails: Martini; Mojito; and Tom Collins. We'll also make a series of
nibbles including Bitter and Sweet Bar Nuts; Devils on Horseback; Blue Cheese Popovers; Spring
Rolls with Orange-Sesame Dipping Sauce; Cheese Straws; Caraway Sticks; Rumaki; and Pigs in a
Blanket. Then we'll sit down and enjoy our meal-and those cocktails!-as we watch this classic
