Hmm, your boyfriend wouldn't be Vyncent, would he?  How many
about-to-be-laurels-in-shoemaking-in-California can there be?  LOL
He's a great guy, we loved having him here in South Downs while he was in
school.  :)

I went there last week!  Lots of great stuff.  I actually didn't know about
this exhibit before I got to the Museum -- I went for the Superheroes
costume exhibition (which was fabulous in its own way) -- so I was pretty
thrilled to see it.  (My boyfriend, who is about to get Laurelled for
shoe-making among other things, was pretty entranced by a German shoe-shaped
drinking vessel... very cool!)  We also got to see Gaston Phoebus' hunting
manuscript at the Morgan Library.  *So* gorgeous, I highly recommend it to
anyone who's going to be in NYC anytime soon...

Obligatory food content: Everything we ate on vacation was delicious, but
none of it historical.  Instead, here's a food-related request on behalf of
the bf's parents, who are coming out to California for his elevation (in two
weeks!!).  They love to cook and bake and volunteered to bring something for
his vigil.  I was going to send them a selection of recipes to choose from
-- some late-16th c variations on biscuits/biscotti/cookies, something that
would survive a plane ride from NYC without refrigeration.  I am
particularly fond of Digby's excellent small cakes (yeah, I know, that's
17th c!) and Granado's (I think?) bizcocho.  Anyone else have any favorites
to recommend?
