    Recipe #385028

    Salbutes are delicious little snacks which typify Mayan and Yucatecan cooking. They can be made with a variety of toppings, I've listed the most popular ones. Salbutes can also be served as part of a luncheon menu. Before making these, note that the pickled red onions (so famous in Yucatan cooking) do require a standing time of several hours. It's best to make them a day in advance, they keep for about a week in the refrigerator. For a great casual lunch, try serving salbutes with a bowl of bean soup and a fresh fruit salad. It's a popular combination served at the Mayan Beach Garden in Yucatan where this recipe comes from.

    This now classic soup was created in the early 1970's when Tex-Mex was becoming popular. It's still a favorite nation wide. Note: This is a good make ahead soup, however if you are making it for future use, do not add the cream, cheese or tortilla chips until just before serving. Store soup in the frig or freezer and add the omitted ingredients before serving.

    Helen Corbitt, Neimans first chef, developed this recipe back in the 50's; and it's still as good as ever. The secret is to ice the cookies when they have completely cooled; you can spread a thicker layer of icing that sets up well and won't smear. The recipe was adapted from the book, Neiman Marcus Taste.

    Recipe #367703

    This recipe supports the Mae West theory which esposes that: "too much of a good thing can be wonderful". The recipe is from one of my favorite books, the Neiman Marcus cookbook. They are just the thing to have with a tall glass of lemonade on a hot summer day.

    Recipe #367327

    This recipe is used as a condiment on Neiman's Portobello Mushroom Sandwich. It's good on other sandwiches and a filler for omelets. The marmalsde should be allowed to stand in the refrigerator for a few days for the flavors to develop.

    Recipe #367119

    Some dishes, such as fish and chips, call for fried potatoes; but deep frying is not the healthiest way to cook the humble tuber; and not my favorite task to do. With oven baking, much less oil is used and the potatoes are crispy--- just be sure to serve them immediately. This very simple, basic recipe from "Neiman Marcus Taste", is the best of the ones that I've tried.

    Recipe #366615

    This is a popular side dish, typically served with sandwiches, at various Neiman Marcus restaurants. It also makes a great corn salsa with a little less sugar, but a finely chopped jalapeno and/or a dash of tapatio sauce added to the relish. Recipe from Neiman Marcus Taste.

    Recipe #365272

    Engine Co. No. 28, is a popular L.A. restaurant located in an historic building, which was constructed in 1912 as a Los Angeles Fire Department firehouse, which housed 2 engine companies. In 1912 LA's population was 400,000; and New Mexico and Arizona were being admitted into the Union. A trip to the restaurant, established in the 1980's has been called a "a big hug from America"; it serves American favorites and some history. Some cooking notes: although you can use canned beans equalling 4 cups, the restaurant uses dried beans starting with a one pound package which will yield about 4 cups of cooked beans. This chili is best when made one day in advance. The flavors develop better. When reheating, add water if necessary and heat slowly to avoid scorching. The recipe had been published in the Los Angeles Times, reader request column.

    Recipe #362049

    If you like your chili with a kick, this meaty, spicy one has it. The recipe calls for "chili-grind" meat, a cut you can ask your butcher to grind. The restaurant uses Bass ale but feel free to use any ale you like. This is the chili that I make for pot-lucks, in part because it is requested, but also I can be pretty sure it will be consumed before the party is over. The recipe was developed by chef Leonard Schwartz at the 72 Market Street Restaurant in the Venice community of Los Angeles, California. The restaurant is no longer there but many of their recipes live on in print. For example, you can find the restaurant's meat loaf recipe in the New Basics Cookbook by Rosso and Lukins. This chili recipe was published in the Los Angeles Times.
