On the Menu: Our Labor Day Weekend Menu

labor day menuMarc Murphy's mini lobster rolls; Karen DeMasco's sweet corn budino with blueberries and cornmeal shortbread

As summer’s twilight looms, we’re testing the strength of our shopping bags by loading them up with ingredients for these tasty late-season recipes. This menu may not call for a piping hot grill, but it will still help you cope with the fact that another summer has come and gone. Chilled Carrot Soup With Clotted Cream, Pistachios, and Mint This elegant dish is souped up (sorry, we can’t resist) with curry, sweet pistachios, and an unexpected dollop of clotted cream, making it one of the more cosmopolitan carrot purées we’ve seen.

Recipe: Mini Lobster Rolls

Marc Murphy's Mini Lobster Rolls Want a taste of the ocean that doesn't come with a sunburn or sand in your bathing suit? Make a plate of Marc Murphy's adorably pint-sized lobster rolls. His version is decidedly pro-mayonnaise, mixing the condiment with roasted garlic, tarragon, and Old Bay seasoning. We think it could convert even the staunchest members of the pro-butter camp.
