Old wine, new bottles?

The L.A. Times blog "Daily Dish" today described a meal at a very trendy restaurant with a twist: it's based on recipes from the original Fanny Farmer cookbook.

They blog: "It's sort of comforting to know that the woman also known as 'the mother of level measurements,' who published her cookbook in 1896, is inspiring chefs at a restaurant in Hollywood in 2010 to make chicken pot pie and fruit rolypoly's."

It must be Fannie Farmer Day! I'm all for that. We don't have enough holidays named after awesome women.

Neat! I love chicken pot pie. I have it at least once a month.

There seems to be quite the Fanny Farmer revival going on.
