"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
These cookies melt in your mouth and are very rich. They are the ones that were auctioned at Christmas in P.E.O. They are very delicate and do not travel well. If I get half of them to stay together, I am happy. Not fun to make but worth the effort for something special.
