TODAY on MHTV: Everyone remembers their first job; mine was at a little restaurant in Connecticut called Bon Appetit. As a teenager, I started out on “prep,” cleaning and cutting piles of vegetables for service, and ended up learning and moving my way up the line to actual cook. Today’s show is a homage to my meager jump into the food business many years ago. Ham quiche is made with my cream-cheese pastry crust, Jarlsberg, and parmesan cheese and is great to eat at any time of day. On the side, a chicory, red cabbage, and escarole salad gets a red-wine vinaigrette, and for dessert, a simple peach kuchen.
