Improvisational Tuscan-Provençal-Catalan Cookery (and other good stuff to eat)
Beef marrows bones are sawed about 2" thick and roasted (then slightly browned under the broiler). Don't cook them too long or they'll totally liquify. With a small spoon or knife, scoop our the marrow, spread on a toast point and sprinkle with chopped parsley, chopped shallot, and a little salt and pepper. One may think that this not a healthy food. But in fact marrow is very healthful and can actually help lower cholesterol. Plus, of course, this is unbelievably delicious - and tres simple.
