  2. Frank’s Sherry Tipple Cocktail

    After a peaceful and not unpleasant sit with Mrs. Baird, I made my way upstairs, to ready myself before Frank came home. I knew his limit with sherry was two glasses, so I expected him back soon.

    The wind was rising, and the very air of the bedroom was prickly with electricity. I drew the brush through my hair, making the curls snap with static and spring into knots and furious tangles.

  3. Outlander on STARZ Premiere Party Menu: Single Malt Pairings

    Here we are, Outlanders! It’s the end of a week of STARZ premiere party menus, and I can’t help but admit to you all that I think I’ve saved the best for last. This Single Malt Pairings Sampler Menu is close to my heart, both as a chef and whisky lover.

    Outlander and my first trip to Scotland in 2011 are responsible for my appreciation of a fine single malt. 

    My Englishman, as someone who can’t (read won’t) drink wine, is responsible for my inspiration over the years to create several menus designed to pair with both beer and whisky.

    Much like Jerry MacKenzie, you’re headed into the unknown alone. But you’re not flying covert ops over the English Channel…instead, you’ve closed the door to the TV room, dimmed the lights and have a pile of tissues standing by for the happy weep fest that is about to begin as the STARZ Outlander premiere finally gets underway…or is that just me?

  6. If your house is as big as Lallybroch, and you’re the type of hostess that brings Jenny Fraser to mind, you may decide to have a wee Gathering at your place for the premiere of Outlander on STARZ.

    Depending on the number of guests, the best way to deal with large party involving food is to turn it into a potluck.  And the best way to deal with a themed potluck is to draw up the list of dishes and start assigning recipes to guests.

    Otherwise, you get 10 desserts, one salad and dozens of dinner rolls…what?  You know I’m right…

    Claire and Frank originally cruised down Loch Ness in Book Outlander, but it looks like, from the photos, that TV Outlander has changed their day trip to a wander through the ruins of Castle Leoch. Nothing like a bit of foreshadowing to start us off, aye?

    This Romantic Picnic for Two is the first of FIVE Outlander Kitchen themed menus I’m sharing this week, in preparation for the premiere of…
