The Harvard Club

The popovers alone are almost reason enough to book your next event at midtown's prominent Harvard Club. Last week The Wedding Salon arranged a beautiful lunch for event planners in the New York area. Designated a landmark in 1967, the classic interior of the Gordon Reading Room and Chef Angelo Ljubicic's signature truffles showcased the private club perfectly. I was in excellent company, dining many industry friends. After sending out a tweet, Carley Roney, co-founder of The Knot.com, addressed the topics of today’s bride, planning a wedding using the internet and the economy.

Chef Ljubicic's Popovers

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

4 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups bread flour
2-3/4 cups milk (divided)
2 Tablespoons shortening to grease muffin pans

In a bowl, mix the eggs, salt and flour. Stir in 1/2 cup of the milk and mix until smooth, then add the rest of
the milk a little at a time to avoid lumps. Strain the mixture through a sieve and fill 2-3/4 inch diameter
greased muffin pans 1-1/2 inches deep. Place in preheated oven and bake for 35 minutes. Reduce heat to
350 degrees F. and bake another 35 minutes.

Yield: 12 Popovers.
