beneath the bough
A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse– and Thou
Beside me singing in the wilderness–
And Wilderness is Paradise enow.
The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám (11th quatrain)
I was reminded of this verse the other day when Mr. Big Food explained to me how to make Danish Easter Duck Bread with Filling and Glaze. It took me a while to understand what he was explaining. Duck bread? It’s bread shaped like a duck. Although it could be a rabbit!
The recipe comes from The Best of Bon Appetit (1979), the cookbook Mr. Big Food has been working on since mid-January!
He tells me the recipes are “involved.” See what you think.
