There are times in entertaining where it can feel that the very kindest gift a guest could possibly bring to the dinner isn't a bouquet of flowers, a basket of fresh fruit, expensive candles, exotic cheeses or a box of biscotti, but a simple phone call saying they can't come.

We provide not only some twenty-first century twists on the meal that reunited squabbling siblings in Dandelion Cottage, but also a practicum inspired by the novel, on the best tactics to give something of a ritzy Savoy service to the meal; though with a homegrown, hometown touch. Recipes include: Roasted Tomato Soup, Tomato Soup Concentrate, Escoffier's Basic Béchamel & White Sauce, Salmon Poached in Court Bouillon, To make Escalloped Salmon, For Cold Marmalade and Sesame Salmon, Mrs. Crane's Light Dandelion Tea Bread, Tanner's Make Ahead Meringues.
