Dine like Stein at Hemingway's

Roaring '20s buffs who dream of supping like Isadora Duncan or Zelda Fitzgerald may want to visit Hemingway's restaurant in Killington this Thursday evening. Chef Ted Fondulas found inspiration for a special meal in a 1994 tome by Suzanne Rodriguez-Hunter. The book is called Found Meals of the Lost Generation: Recipes and Anecdotes from 1920s Paris.

Fondulas will prepare old-fashioned-sounding dishes such as "cold asparagus with sauce ravigote" — ravigote is a roux-thickened sauce flavored with shallots, chives and tarragon — and "bouillabaisse à la Marseillaise." The meal will close with Gertrude Stein's "nameless cookies." The recipe for these also appears in the famous Alice B. Toklas Cookbook, published in 1954. Unlike the recipe for "hashish fudge," also in that edition's British version, they're 100 percent legal.


Dinner begins at 7 p.m. and costs $85 per person. Guests are encouraged to "dress of the age," but flapper gear is optional. For information or reservations, call 422-3886.
