…is the salmon salsa verde actress Tracy Pollan made for her family’s dinner for ELLE’s October Living feature. (I got to try it, and it was literally the best fish I’ve ever had.) Tracy sources her fish from Dorian’s Seafood Market on the Upper East Side, which just so happens to ship nationwide.
In talking with Tracy and her brother, Michael Pollan — did you know they’re brother and sister? — about the cookbook Tracy wrote with their mother and sisters, The Pollan Family Table (out October 28), I heard a lot about their family traditions. My favorite tidbit was that their mother, former New York magazine editor Corky Pollan, used to let them plan their own birthday meals.
Tracy’s birthday menu: duck á l’orange, French onion soup, and gateau St.Honoré
Michael’s birthday menu: chicken Kiev and flourless chocolate cake
