Bread Pudding with Pineapple, Raisins, Pine Nuts and Tequila Sauce

This bread pudding is addictively good.  I’ve served it three times now and no one can resist.  Maybe its the gooey center formed from the custard. The fragrance from the vanilla and baking bread or the sweetness of the pineapple and golden raisins. Perhaps its the syrupy tequila sauce.  It’s the kind of dessert that when you offer seconds to guests, they will accept with a bit of guilt on their face.  Don’t have this around if you are on a diet.  Make it for company and make only what you can eat, because the rest is going to disappear into your own tummy, unless you have lots of willpower.

Hollywood Bowl and Peach Ice Cream

Katia and Marielle Labèque at the Hollywood Bowl

Katia and Marielle Labèque at the Hollywood Bowl

Two of my favorite things are food and classical music.  Put them together and you have a magical evening.  Attending the Hollywood Bowl is a summer ritual that I have enjoyed for years.  Visualize a warm summer evening under the stars eating great food and listening to great music while relaxing with friends.  It’s simply a delightful evening, once you brave the traffic to get there!  Tonight we were going to hear the Labeque sisters – Katia and Marielle – play Poulenc’s Concerto for Two Pianos.  I had never seen them perform before with their two concert grands spooned together on stage, so this was going to be a real treat for me.

In the past, I’ve always had to rush from the office,  grab a to-go meal at a restaurant and meet my guests at the assigned time.  But no more.  Rushing out the door is still a ritual, but usually because I’m packing up my picnic basket/cooler with my home-cooked meal.   I take great pride in coming up with a menu that will please my guests and it usually makes the people in the seats around us envious.  The comment I usually get is, “Wow! You’re a Hollywood Bowl Pro!”  I gladly share my cooking secrets with our neighbors, but guard our food!!  We generally eat a three-course gourmet meal, while our neighbors are munching on their chips.
