Saturday at the Old Courthouse

Her demonstrations are part of the historic holiday celebrations sponsored by the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial/National Parks Service.

Click on the “recipes” tab at the top of this page for Suzanne’s recipe for Pecan Pralines, a St Louis French colonial favorite made by early St. Louis cooks who used wild pecans from the thick groves that once grew along the riverfront, which replaced the almonds in the original French recipe.

We’ll talk about “Potent Potables,” to use the Jeopardy term for alcoholic beverages. Matt, by the way, has a great article on stocking your home bar in the December issue of Sauce magazine.
