Baltimore Lake Trout Sandwich



Nobody really knows where the habit of calling whiting "lake trout" in Baltimore came from.  Some theorize it started with the Black Muslim movement of the 60's.  One thing is for certain though, Baltimore's Lake Trout Sandwich is a Soul Food favorite.  The Roost has been serving lake trout since 1974 and you can guarantee the line is always out the door.  For a little bit of money you get a huge portion of fried whiting fillets, fries and bread.

Great Western Champagne


I've run across these ads for Great Western Champagne from time to time and I always wanted to see who this vintner was.  I used one of their 1935 ads yesterday and this is another from the same year.  All of their ads are great pieces of the deco art form.

Boston Cream Pie, 1920 Recipe


This is another recipe that comes from a 1920 Cookbook called "Recipes For Everyday" that was underwritten by Crisco.  Naturally all the recipes involve crisco in the ingredients but in this case I can an least agree with it because I think that Crisco makes for a good cake and icing.  Now this recipe is already perplexing you as the picture runs counter to the usual Boston Cream Pie we are used to today, i.e. a yellow cake with custard filling and a chocolate ganache icing.  I thought that at first as well but after trying this recipe I think I like it better than what we are used to.
