Tune in to Tonight’s Ballet Cook Book Dinner on Twitter

Tanaquil Le Clercq Menu

The menu for tonight’s dinner.

The menu has been finalized for tonight’s Ballet Cook Book Dinner, where 11 friends and I will sample six recipes by Tanaquil Le Clercq, the famous New York City Ballet principal, fourth and final wife of George Balanchine, and author of the cookbook that inspired our dinner series. The dishes are all over the map — literally: We’ll be feasting on guacamole, swordfish tarragon, celery root soufflé, and “Just Yammy” (a Southern sweet potato dish), followed by tarte à l’orange and egg nog for dessert.

I’ll post the customary post-dinner recap within a few days, but if you’d like to follow the preparation and the meal in real time, follow me on Twitter and join the conversation by using the hashtag “#balletcookbook.” We’ll start tweeting from the kitchen at 3 p.m. (EST) and will continue posting throughout the dinner, which begins at 8:30. We’re happy to answer your questions!
