Food & Drink
by Rona Boyer
The other evening we went to a friend's house for dinner and bridge. That was unusual because we usually do dinner and bridge at our house. The reason is that Gerard is a fabulous host but can be a terrible guest. He is extremely particular about his food and wine and only likes what he likes and is not afraid to say so. When we do accept an invitation, we are almost never invited a second time. Because I felt the greater offense would have been to refuse the invitation, we went. Much to my relief, the food was wonderful and Gerard enjoyed it immensely. The dinner started with this cold spinach-potato soup, as delicious as it is healthful—maybe more. My hostess was kind enough to share her recipe but preferred that I not share her name.
