Farewell, Pat Conroy

I had been reading Pat Conroy's cookbook, The Pat Conroy Cookbook: Recipes and Stories of My Life, when our telephone rang. Pat's sister-in-law, Terrye, was on the line with a request (actually, bestowing an honor) from the Conroy family for me to cater Pat's funeral reception at the Yacht Club on Tuesday afternoon. It seemed like fate or even a serendipity, that I had Pat's cookbook on my desk with a folded down corner marking Chapter 15, “Why Dying Down South Is More Fun.” Pat had already planned the menu for me. The way I show people that I care about them is through food. So, four of Pat's quotes from Chapter 15 really hit home. “Cooking ...

Ham and Cheddar Quiche

The true name for this tasty entree should be “Midnight Quiche.” I came up with the recipe in the wee hours of the morning after a particularly late catering event when there was nothing to eat in our fridge. Being the caterer's husband is often a great deal like being the cobbler's children! Luckily this creation was a success and Vince has requested it multiple times. The secret ingredient is Dijon mustard.
