Academy Awards Party!

Thursday, March 1, 2018

So many people ask, “What does Barefoot Contessa mean?”  It was the original name of my specialty food store after a movie with Ava Gardner and Humphrey Bogart.  But for me, it means being both elegant and earthy, which is exactly what I love about these Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs.  I’ve taken simple deviled eggs and dressed them up for an Academy Awards Party with smoked salmon and caviar.  How bad could that be?? No matter who takes home an Oscar, this one’s sure to be a winner!
