HOW MANY WAYS ARE THERE TO SERVE GROUND MAIZE?:

Elizabeth Warren's recipes sound familiar (Howie Carr, May 19, 2012, Boston Herald)

Elizabeth Warren, the fake Indian, has another problem with the Pow Wow Chow cookbook.

It seems that at least two of her "special recipes passed down through the Five Tribes families" are identical to ones from The New York Times [NYT] that were printed in 1979.

And they're not just from any eatery either -- the recipes came from Le Pavillon, the fabulous French restaurant that domin-ated le haute cuisine in Man-- hattan from 1941 to 1966.

Amazing, too, that Granny's recipes for Crab With Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing, and Cold Omelets With Crab Meat, while no doubt popular along the Trail of Tears, were likewise tres populaire with Le Pavillon's Beaut-iful People clientele.

As Pierre Franey, the Pav-illon chef and original author of the recipes put it, "The dish was a great favorite of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Cole Porter."

Cole Porter was an Indian? Who knew?
