Want to eat like your favourite designer?
Well, the CFDA has released the American Fashion Cookbook, a compilation of recipes, illustrations, and food-related quotes from over 100 American designers.
Derek Lam contributed Yellowtail Crudo, Isaac Mizrahi submitted Mushroom Truffle Spaghetti, and Diane von Furstenberg, who says she's "never been a great cook," added a recipe for Saturday Night Chicken (see recipe below).
What she uses:
1 or more whole chicken
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 tablespoons mustard of your choice
Preheat cover to 400 degrees. Wash, dry and salt the chicken and put in a Pyrex baking dish. Squeeze the juice of the ½ lemon inside the chicken cavity. Add sage leaves (the more the better), sour cream, and mustard inside the chicken. Peel potatoes and put in baking dish. Sprinkle rosemary and olive oil on chicken and potatoes. Bake at 400 degrees for 1-½ hours. Serve it with love.
Making it seem all too easy, DVF leaves us with this " I have never been a great cook, yet when you cook for the ones you love, you somehow become one. My Saturday Night Chicken is a simple recipe, full of herbs and full of love. It is a meal that somehow is so cozy and delicious that you always end up eating it with your hands!"
This might actually motivate me to learn how to cook!
