A dear friend of mine, the late Zena Swerling, was a gifted cook. "Here's another can't-go-wrong recipe," she'd offer breezily, and although they always worked, they were never quite the same as when served by her.
Zena was a good, old-fashioned cook with a generous hand and heart. It was not always easy to interpret and annotate her recipes unless you were by her side in the kitchen.
