Roasted chicken with some herbes de provences sprinkled on top with roasted vegetables--pretty much my favorite winter meal.

Maine rock lobsters were less than $4/lb at markets this summer. Which means that we had two family feasts of 1.5lb lobsters. I was in charge of the cooking, which is often best with a little music to obscure the horrible sound of claws scraping on the sides of the pot of boiling water. They were quite delicious, especially because they were so cheap. Russell Banks has a great short story called Lobster Night, which explores cruelty, lechery, and what The Smiths called eating animals: Meat Is Murder.

My mother’s matzah balls ready for Passover seder. Great soup and delicious matzah balls--not too dense, not too light--and flavored with handmade shmaltz!

The last meal at the Locust Restaurant featured a 4-inch high block of lasagna.

The prices are cheap and the servings are huge at The Locust in Port Morris, the Bronx. I've been on an intensive 3-week photoshoot, documenting the paintings of Irving Kriesberg in an industrial warehouse. Lunchtime has been truly a pleasure at this most unlikely diner-like restaurant with great, friendly service and a homey atmosphere.
