I am beginning to try out the recipes I have planned for my Downton Abbey Dinner. The first one is a split pea soup. I am trying to duplicate the old Magic Pan "Potage St. Germain" recipe (which can be found easily online). However, I am trying to do a more healthy version. I will include little tiny glasses with a bit of brandy at each place setting, to pour into each individual soup serving if my ladies want that, the way Magic Pan used to do.
I have a dessert recipe to try, and I need to figure out how to do a version of my main entrée without gluten so I can have some of that (my ladies will have the normal recipe).
