Acknowledging the extraordinary life of Felix Rohatyn, immigrant, financier, “fixer”, philanthropist, ambassador, advisor, husband of the late, lovely Elizabeth Rohatyn; and stepfather to dear friend @ninaggg, to whom the sympathies of the legions who love her go this day and in the days ahead. Mr Rohatyn’s obituary in @nytimes is a fascinating read summarizing a remarkable era in our history and in New York City’s saga of near-demise in the 1970s. RIP #felixrohatyn Photo @gettyimages via @nytimes.

Don’t you love this cardboard cut out of His Grace?! We busted this out at a launch party for the new book, and I thought “Wow, the beginning of a slick pr campaign right here” (propped up on the stove) And he said “Maybe in Amarillo” And I said “I’ll take Amarillo!” From now til Jan 1, buy a copy of California Cooking and Southern Style and get a Talkin’ Big free. What a deal, right?! Order via link in profile. Merry Happy!

Our festive book club lunch today, having read The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto, by @mitchalbom It’s been out a few years but like Frankie’s guitar strings, it hasn’t lost its magic. It’s also great on @audible hearing the real life @lyle_lovett @wyntonmarsalis and others read their parts. The menu was first a Spanish potato and chorizo torta, broccoli rabe, second a salad and cheese, and lastly homemade peppermint ice cream w chocolate sauce and ricciarelli cookies and chocolates. #californiacookingandsouthernstyle

Love the beauty and simplicity of all green… reposted from @flowermagazine the work of Atlanta floral designer @canaanmarshall. Swipe for foliage details. I’m just getting around to my own mantels. Keeping it pretty simple this year as we are traveling a bit. You?

The ‘60s lived on in last night’s LA soiree celebrating a movie-tv friend’s homecoming from a months-long project on the East Coast. One of the clever hostesses (i was strictly a guest!) decorated a series of styrofoam wig stands in go-go and other super groovy get-ups that were pure genius! .

Funny-not-funny! Don’t get me started… about this ho-ho-ho-riffic habit of cancelling, no-showing, not replying. What on earth is happening to us that this has become endemic in our culture? Especially in big, busy cities full of big, busy people… though it does remind me of how grateful I am for the many good friends and loyal acquaintances we do have and appreciate all the more for their integrity, honor, and manners. … Image is a greeting card I found at @jwoesteinlo Swipe for artist/creator

I have watched this 100 times… with granddaughter Piper aka @djpipertini1016 casting a critical eye o’r new book California Cooking and Southern Style, and coming upon beloved family friend Junebug’s (aka @dogtalkchef ) gorgeous flatbreads in Chapter 5. You can hear His Grace jn the background speculating that she might become a chef… That or a comedienne. Looking forward to celebrating in NYC tonight. .
