But, whereas grandma may have stayed put, not so the children. You're as likely to find an authentic New England chowder in Santa Monica as you are a very acceptable barbecue on an apartment roof top in Manhattan. The regional recipes evolved naturally from the region's special foods. Delmonica's swinging restaurant in early New York was one of the first of the big importers. Potatoes all the way from Idaho! And they made much ado about this torte; a marvelous looking thing, fragilely held together with Parmesan cheese and butter. In the much imitated French manner, it was served as a separate course with whatever vegetables were in season at the time. Those very Idaho potatoes are about the easiest "homegrown" product to come by today. No matter where you live. Your little corner grocery or big supermarket is almost sure to have fresh Idaho potatoes as well as any number of wonderful Idaho convenience products. When they're made from potatoes grown in Idaho, with their big flavor plus, you can have a reasonable facsimile of your dear old mother's pancakes, hashed browns or lovingly mashed in a fraction of the time it took her. And you can have a potato torte the way they made it at Delmonico's, with love and labor. Tberes' no other way. DELMONICO POTATO TORTE 6 tablespoons butter 6 Idaho potatoes 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese teaspoon nutmeg salt and Unmold on serving dish.
