It’s Throwback Thursday, and we have cookbook on the brain! We thought we would take this opportunity to help you connect the dots between all the antlers you’ve been seeing lately and a place up the coast now brought to life on the coast of South Beach in an Extra Large dish called Harvey Cedars… What do they have in common? Chef Michael Schwartz’s new restaurant at the Raleigh Hotel and his volume of recipes published in 2011.
Restaurant Michael Schwartz at the Raleigh Hotel debuted on Monday and has on its dinner menu a few of our long time favorites that we haven’t dipped in to since – gasp – the cookbook shoot! As you can guess, one sore spot in particular is the Harvey Cedars Fish Stew, inspired by Michael’s summers with the family on New Jersey’s Long Beach Island, which you see above in a behind-the-scenes shot from January 2010 along side its current notation on the RMS menu. Well you can’t fault me completely. I headed the wake-up call and went to Williams Sonoma this weekend, the store that lent us that Le Creuset dutch oven beauty in the photo and purchased one of these essential kitchen tools for myself. It was a long time coming to my coffers, and look forward to following the Raleigh Hotel’s lead and putting a stop to the insanity in my own home soon with a nice big bowl of it.
Watch The Making of Michael’s Genuine Food and find its debut in the original post here. We also stored some behind the scenes images on our Flickr for posterity. Happy Throwback Thursday on The Genuine Kitchen, and please come visit us on South Beach where the genuine cookbook is out in full, Le Creuset flaming force on the menu and – for those of you inspired to make Harvey Cedars at home, too – in stock for purchase!
