FRIDAY,,APRIL 22,1988

A Sumptuous Feast
Mimics 'Babette'

DANNY RASKIN

Local Columnist

T

he movie was unex-
pectedly very enter-
taining . . . and the
limited number of invitees
treated to the preview of
Babette's Feast at the Detroit
Film Theatre, Detroit In-
stitute of Arts, were quite
surprised.
It was little wonder that
this fine Danish film with its
clear and precise English sub-
titles won an Oscar as best
fofeign film.
The story is an interesting
one . . . and Babette's
preparation of her sumptuous
feast (in the film, she was an
executive chef at a top French
restaurant before fleeiing a
civil war there) is choicely
done.
When the movie ended, the
evening 'had just begun . . . as
21 folks gathered at London
Chop House, where ever
gracious hostess Lainie Pin-
cus, her executive chef Grant
Brown and master sommelier
Madeline Triffon had an
almost exact replica of the
10,000-franc dinner Babette
prepared in thanks with her
entire lottery winnings.
Julie Greenwalt, People
Magazine; Susan and Al
Stark, Detroit News; Molly
Abraham and Nickie
McWirter, Detroit Free Press;
Norm and Joan Viviano, Vi-
viano Wines; Bob McCabe,
etc., enjoyed the feast of feasts
. . . applauded chef Grant
Brown for his excellent efforts
and thanked Lainie for an ab-
solutely delightful cuisine
presentation.
Of course the silverware,
glassware and fine elegant
candleholders at London
Chop House were much finer
than those at the poor Danish
home where Babette's feast
was served . . . but the superb
seven-course dinner was an
elegant experience.
Potage a la tortue (turtle
soup), blini demidoff au
caviar russe (pancake with
Russian caviar and light sour
cream), caille en sarcophage
avec sauce perigourdine
(quail stuffed with foie gras
baked in puff pastry nest with
truffles), la salade (salad), les
fromages (cantal, fourme
d'ambert and blue d'auvergne
cheeses), baba au rhum et
fruits confits (baba rum cake
and candied fruits), les fruits
frais (fresh fruits) and cafe
(coffee) and Hine cognac.
With the light, gentle tur-
tle soup was a beautiful
Sandeman Amontillado
sherry . . . the blini was serv-

ed with a champagne Veuve
Clicquot Brut . . . the stuffed
quail entree was accompanied
by Madeline Triffon pouring
an exquisite Louis Latour
Clos de Vougeot, very delicate
and airy.
It was a most memorable
adventure in fine arts . . .
culinary expertise and
ultimate graciousness.
SENOR MARCELLO
Minestrone . . . also known as
Pat Diggles, clever and very
talented marketing director
for Charley's Restaurants,
sends this from "Charley's
Pasta Party Campaign Head-
quarters" .. .
"Charley's Official Pasta
Poll, conducted by total
novices and a few semi-
professionals, indicates that
the Federico Fettucine cam-
paign may be experiencing a
landslide victory. Close
behind, with an avalanche of
votes is Leonardo Linguine. A
recent write-in campaign for
Lido Lasagna has started a
ground swell of support sur-
prising experienced poll wat-
chers everywhere. The same
incompetent poll takers who
are hard at work on our Of-
ficial Poll are also responsible
for the administration of this
Official Presidential Poll.
Therefore, we suggest you
follow the lead of The Na-
tional Enquirer, and other
reputable sources, and total-
ly disregard these results."
People who vote for the best
pasta during Charley's
"Pasta Party" now through
May 8 have their names pick-
ed out to win dinner for eight
at their own homes . . . cook-
ed and served by Charley's
folks . . . The Charley's staf-
fers even bring their own pots
and pans . . . and do all the
cleanup too . . . There'll be a
winner at each of the nine
Charley's locales (Bloomfield,
Southfield, Northville,
Fairlane, Eastside, Livonia,
Clamdiggers, Meriwether's
and Ibledo.)
The homemade pasta at
Charley's Restaurants are
special recipe creations by ex-
ecutive chef Craig Common,
THIS TUESDAY is a big
day for City of Hope . . .
That's when the Greater
Detroit Metropolitan Council
banquet will honor Frank
Stella and present him with
its "Spirit of Life" award at
Hyatt Regency, Dearborn.
Norm Crosby, who for years
has served as City of Hope's
international ambassador of
good will, is noted on televi-
sion, niteries and stages
around the world for his com-
edy style of word mangling.
