BACKSTORY: Carolyn & Clint stayed an extra day just for the family dinner at Magnolia’s on Thursday night. When we got to the place, someone said to spread out the families. One suggestion was to draw seat numbers from a hat to mix up the families, but that didn’t happen. So, as it turned out, there was a lot of mixing up going on. We didn’t have the banquet room this year, but Carolyn thinks that the rest of the upstairs was more conducive to mingling. It was easier to walk around the tables. However, there was also a lot of chaos with the ordering and serving of food. Mark said "They came over with a bottle of wine and asked if it was mine because they forgot which table ordered it. I said it was mine." People were already eating salad before others even got to order. So that part was confusing. I really feel for the waiters since not only did they have a large family to take care of, we were confusing them by walking around and not paying much attention.

FATAL ILLNESS.
FOOD POISONING?
PUKEKOHE FAMILY.
MOTHER DIES IN HOSPITAL.
THREE OTHERS RECOVERING.
Four members of a Pukekohe household were admitted to the Auckland Hospital early this morning, suffering from food poisoning.
The mother, Mrs. Lucy Nicholson, aged 46, died at 10.10 a.m.
The condition of the three others, Mr. Norman Nicholson, aged 47, Mr. Eric Nicholson, aged 24, a son, and Mrs. Norma Dennison, aged 22 a married daughter, is not regarded as serious.
The members of the household—Mrs. Dennison lives at Glen Afton and was visiting her parents at the time—became ill in the early hours of Tuesday morning. Dr. H. Stewart Douglas was called, and found the three confined to their beds. He ordered treatment, and called again on Wednesday morning, and also in the afternoon, when they appeared to be somewhat better. However, about midnight last night Dr. Douglas received another call, and this time found all four patients very much worse, and he ordered their removal to the Auckland Hospital.
It was at first thought that the illness was due to ptomaine poisoning, but the family had not eaten any tinned food on Tuesday, and other food is now suspected. The police are making investigations, and the Health Department is carrying out a laboratory examination of the food eaten by the family.
The Nicholson family have lived at Pukekohe East for two years. Mrs. Norma Dennison, the married daughter, went to visit her parents on Tuesday. An inquest will be held into Mrs. Nicholson’s death.

MYSTERY.
? MORE CASES.
Women In Hospital.
CONDITION NOT SERIOUS.
HOW MRS. NICHOLSON DIED.
(By Telegraph—Press Association. AUCKLAND, Dec. 14.
Two more cases of suspected poisoning have been admitted to the Auckland hospital from the Franklin district, but neither is serious. The latest victims are Mrs. Margaret Burrow, of Pukekohe, and Mrs, Elsie May Tout, of Onewhero.
It is believed the death of Mrs. Lucy Nicholson, one of the family first affected, was due to haemorrhage, induced by violent sickness.
The cause of the poisoning has not been ascertained, and investigations are made more difficult by the fact that one of the two patients admitted to-day lives 17 miles from the residence of the Nicholson family.

Poisoning of Family at Pukekohe East.
A FATAL MEAL.
MRS NICHOLSON’S DEATH.
INQUEST CONCLUDED.
The adjourned inquest, concerning a case of fatal food poisoning at Jericho road, Pukekohe East, the victim being Mrs Lucy Nicholson, aged 40, was concluded at Auckland yesterday by the coroner, Mr F. K. Hunt, S.M.
A verdict that death was due to food poisoning was returned.
Evidence was given by Hazel Moren Weare Flay, a married woman, who said she lived about a quarter of a mile from the home of the Nicholsons, with whom she was very friendly. She visited their home on the morning of December 10 and assisted Mrs Nicholson with the cooking. Some Spanish cream was made, the ingredients being three eggs, which witness thought were duck eggs, three pints of milk, half a cup of sugar, a pinch of salt and half a teaspoon of vanilla. The ingredients were taken from a cupboard by Mrs Nicholson and her daughter, Mrs N. Dennison.
Witness said that Mrs Nicholson appeared to be in good health and spirits when she had a conversation with her over the telephone in the evening. On the following morning witness learned of the family’s illness and she went to assist them. Mrs Nicholson expressed the opinion that they had been poisoned and she thought the meat had been responsible for their condition. On the morning of December 12 witness found the Nicholson’s ill in bed and she summoned a doctor who, ordered their removal to hospital, Mrs Nicholson passing away on December 13.
Evidence was also given by Eric Archibald Nicholson, a son, and Norman Nicholson, deceased’s husband, to the effect that the family had partaken of the same food. They had consumed a meal of roast beef, boiled potatoes, Spanish cream and banana custard on the evening of December 10.
The coroner said that Dr. Walter Gilmour, pathologist at the Auckland Hospital, had made a post-mortem examination, which had resulted in the isolation of the bacillus aertrycke, and the pathologist’s opinion was that death was caused by food poisoning. He had examined other articles, including those obtained from the house, and the bacillus was isolated from the Spanish cream. It was not possible, however, to say from what ingredient the dish the infection came. Detective-Sergeant McHugh said the police had a large file on the matter, there having been other cases about the same time. There was only one death from food poisoning.
The coroner, in returning the verdict given above, said the infection might have been in anything. The weather at the time was hot. He understood the germ had been known to occur in duck eggs.

“That Chocolate Cake”
cookbook
Image by ulterior epicure
"That Chocolate Cake" is from the Scharffen Berger "The Essence of Chocolate" cookbook. It’s moist, it’s fluffy, it’s rich, it’s dark, it’s velvety, it’s luscious, and it’s sinful. It’s so many things, and yet, really, it is just that chocolate cake. I baked this (and others) for my friends’ 40th wedding anniversary party. Not surprisingly, it was the first cake to go.

Per the recipe, this is a two-layer cake layered and frosted with a dark (99%) cooked ganache. I took to decorating the cake on the outside with cake crumble, which is not in the recipe. (See a cross-section here.)

G.N.A.M. Village Il Villaggio della Dieta Mediterranea e della Biodiversità sarà il contributo diretto che Città della Scienza darà alla valorizzazione e alla promozione di culture agroalimentari e del cibo dalle radici antiche; sarà un riferimento fondamentale per una nuova didattica della corretta alimentazione, del suo rapporto fecondo con la salute e con l’ambiente, con riferimento alle scuole di ogni ordine e grado; sarà uno spazio aperto per i produttori, il mondo dell’alta formazione e della ricerca; sarà il luogo dove le più avanzate ricerche e pratiche innovative sulla food innovation e sulla food safety si potranno incontrare con i bisogni del sistema d’impresa; sarà uno spazio aperto per le famiglie con la sue rete di attività e di eventi popolari, ai consumatori, con le loro nuove domande e i loro nuovissimi diritti. Al tempo stesso non dimenticherà il grande tema del lavoro della terra, dei suoi antichi diritti e dei temi nuovi della giustizia distributiva del cibo su scala mondiale.
Il Villaggio rappresenta una nuova funzionalizzazione di un’area di 4000 mq già interna a Città della Scienza che, per 365 giorni all’anno, sarà uno spazio attivo di didattica, formazione, eventi.
Il 23 giugno abbiamo posto la prima pietra ideale del Villaggio che poi nei fatti non ne porrà alcuna in senso letterale: le piante sono i nostri mattoni e le protagoniste dei lavori di allestimento. I primi due orti hanno preso vita durante la manifestazione di presentazione del progetto a cui hanno partecipato tutti coloro che, Mondo della Scuola, Istituzioni Universitarie e di Ricerca, Parchi e Enti locali, Corpi dello Stato e Associazioni, Imprese e singole personalità, saranno i protagonisti attivi della sua vita e delle sue iniziative.

Alinea Cookbook: PB&J

Inspired by both the blog Alinea At Home (http://alineaathome.typepad.com/) and by Grant Achatz’ comment from the November 2008 issue of Chicago magazine where he said:

"…the recipes are not hard. I challenge anyone to find a recipe in that book that is more complicated than your basic scratch chocolate cake,”

I have taken it upon myself to cook as much from the Alinea cookbook as I can.

I don’t mean to be a braggart, Mr. Achatz, but I make a mean chocolate cake.

For my first experiment, I’ve made Alinea’s take on the American lunchbox classic, PB&J.

It ain’t perfect, but I’m damn proud of how these eight little bread and PB wrapped grapes turned out.
