Joy of Cooking: Recipe #12, Cafe (Coffee) Continental
Joy of Cooking:  Recipe #12, Cafe (Coffee) Continental
I am going to make every recipe in Joy of Cooking, regardless. This one was horrible. There is an extremely vague, to me, ingredient listed: "sweet red wine". That, to me, meant sweet marsala or maybe even port and I could see how that would be very nice in coffee. But Irma lists port and marsala by name everywhere else, so it would be strange for her not to do so here. I looked all over the internet and through my cookbooks and cooking reference books for any mention of "Cafe Continental" or "Coffee Continental" and the only place it was mentioned was in a spirits guidebook that suspiciously seemed to describe the Joy of Cooking recipe word-for-word. I found beaujolais and lambrusco listed as sweet red wines somewhere, but I don't think it would be nice to put them in my coffee. There are also spices involved--coriander and powdered ginger. Anyway, I was tired of thinking about it and just wanted to make it, taste it, and be done with it when I was in the local liquor store and underneath one of the red wines was a bold yellow starburst that said 'SWEET!". It was red and it was sweet, the sign said so! My tired brain said, there you go, it's a sign from Irma! And so, it came home with me. Well, my less tired mind knew immediately that Shiraz isn't sweet, that probably a young stocker just thought the price for the bottle was extremely reasonable. The recipe called for a tablespoon of sugar, and I put that in, warmed the wine mixture, tasted and added a bit more. Individually, the coffee was fine. The spiced and sweetened wine was fine. Together, it is the worst concoction I have ever attempted to drink. If you have EVER heard of Cafe Continental, please leave me a comment. I am betting sweet marsala was what she had in mind, but if this drink actually exists in the wider world, there must be some wine associated with it by tradition. I would love to know what it is!

Looking across to Manhattan from Newark Liberty International airport at very early o'clock in the morning after a nightmare journey across the pond... I was meant to be flying from Birmingham at 9am. I ended up being bussed down to Heathrow instead as the plane was not well. It was a long day of queuing and worrying and hanging about not really knowing what was going on. I ended up being taken to one side at security and having my body x-rayed. Then when I was called to board I was taken to one side again and frisked. I suspect it was because by then I had the most harried expression on my face. In the chaos Continental did not feed us either. So I went from 8am UK time until abut 5pm UK time (when we'd finally taken off) without anything to eat. I well and truly missed my connection in Newark,ended up staying in a motel practically at the end of the runway and getting up in the middle of the night to return to the airport for the first flight out. It was a combination of shuttle bus and monorail to and from Newark airport. Very tiring and annoying. I ended up helping someone else caught up in the nightmare who had the most enormous suitcases I've ever seen. (She'd been to a Birmingham for an exhibition for work and was trying to get home to LA). We boarded the morning flight and breathed a sigh of relief - only to be told by the pilot that we might have to stop part way to LA to refuel. NOOOO! As it turned out, we didn't need to in the end, but I think the whole journey was the most stressed I've ever been while travelling. I have bad luck with Continental. Don't get me wrong - the flights are fine once we take off and I've always felt safe. I just seem to get all the delays... It was very pretty all the same waiting at Newark at 6am... Not bad for through a dirty airport window! IMG_0077-2
