Christmas Dinner with Helen

Helen, seen here, is 97. Get her started on how to make filo dough, or any other topic, and you are in for a story. Her specialties tonight included pastitsio (Greek lasagna) and baklava. Her daughter Joan is no cooking slouch either, with a lobster shepherd's pie based on an old recipe from The Elms Inn, in Ridgefield, CT. Other guests brought the salad with pine nuts and the kumquat tarts. An excellent feast!
