“Narcissus was the son of Cephissus, the river god, and the nymph Leiriope. By the time he was sixteen everyone recognized his ravishing beauty, but he scorned all lovers – of both sexes – because of his pride. The nymph Echo was hopelessly in love but she was hindered by her inability to initiate a conversation. Eventually Narcissus rejected her. She wasted away in her grief to a mere voice. A young man, similarly spurned, prayed that he would love himself unremittingly. The goddess Nemesis answered this prayer by arranging that Narcissus would stop to drink at a spring on the heights of Mount Helicon. As he looked in the water he saw his own reflection and instantly fell in love with the image. He could not embrace his reflection in the pool. Unable to tear himself away he remained until he died of starvation. But no body remained – in its place was a flower. ” (Ovid)
From Baking with Julia by Dorie Greenspan
serves about 4 people
1 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. cornmeal (I used plain cornmeal)
7 Tb. cold butter
1/3 c. ice water
3 Tb. sour cream
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary (or thyme)
1 pound of potato washed and peeled into 1/4 inch slices
1/2 cup zucchini cut into 1/2 inch chunks (I used 1/2 of a green zucchini, cut into 1/2,then cut into the 1/2 inch chunks)
1/4 cup of gorgonzola cheese crumbled
salt and pepper to taste
1 egg lightly beaten
Remove the dough, divide it in half (for 1-2 servings, or wrap it as one for 3-4 servings). I did double the recipe and made another one the next day. Squish the ball down flat and wrap it in plastic and chill for at least 2 hours. You could also work with the dough the next day as I did and it will be great.
Let’s Bake It!
Bake it for about 40-50 minutes until it is golden brown. The bottom crush should be a nice golden color. Enjoy!
