Clark Gable Salad

It is TOO COLD for salads at the moment here in London and the thought of having one makes me shiver.  But it's hot elsewhere in the world right?! Years ago, in 2013, I came upon a mention of this on the internet. The Clark Gable Salad, on the MGM commissary menu,...

Jerry Stiller’s Chicken Soup With Kreplach

One night I said to Mr Rathbone over, and over and over again, "This is the funniest film I ever saw" about The Independent starring Jerry Stiller. The next day I could remember nothing about it.  Zilch.  Nada.  So we resolved to watch it again on "Stiller Saturday",...

Paul Sorvino’s Rigatoni Bolognese
