Why January is for Diets


My Christmas dinner party this year was a largish affair for me, with close to 30 guests. As usual, I put in significant overtime on the desserts. In the photo the perennial Apple Tart is in the center. Upper right is the Sivabelle chocolate cake, an exceedingly moist concoction. Beneath are chocolate truffles, some rolled in cocoa and some in hazelnut. Lower left are the Orangettes, slivers of orange peel covered in chocolate. There is much to do to tenderize and flavor the peel, but the taste is very delicate. Upper left is a tray of three kinds of cookies—oatmeal chocolate, chocolate Saltines and French macaroons. Now that the holiday season is over, I don’t think I’m the only one who has rededicated to clean, fat free living for the foreseeable future. It’s either that or a new wardrobe, God forbid.
