D’Anjou Pear Galette

Dessert at the Cafe at the Frick. See those slices of fresh pear? The flaky crust galette was warmed and topped with a scoop of ricotta gelato. That’s a golden drizzle of bourbon caramel and a shake of cinnamon you see finishing the presentation. Oh and a pansy with a few blueberries for garnish. Mmmmmm.It was a perfect fall dessert.

Before lunch, my friend V and I had seen the exhibit of Katherine Hepburn Dressed for Stage and Screen showing her Costume and Fashion Collection. On view until January 12th. This winter we’ll watch a few of the old movies featured to see her wearing the costumes on screen. Here’s an article link https://www.post-gazette.com/life/fashion/2019/10/17/The-Frick-Pittsburgh-Katharine-Hepburn-Dressed-for-Stage-Screen/stories/201910170010in the Post-Gazette by Sarah Bauknecht about the exhibition

  1. My wife and I have seen most of the well-known Katherine Hepburn movies more than once, and we’ve seen “The Philadelphia Story” at least five or six times. My wife took one look at the photo above of Katherine Hepburn’s clothing from “The Philadelphia Story,” and she said, “Those are NOT from ‘The Philadelphia Story.'” Then we read the article from the Post-Gazette, and it turns out that they were from the stage production of “The Philadelphia Story.” So, Ruth, your photo caption was correct! 🙂

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
