Brace yourselves, dear readers, for a double dose of Betty Draper. She may be a Mad Men woman scorned, but “victim of circumstance” and “dramatic, manipulative, and vindictive child” are not mutually exclusive titles. Put on your crazypants and join me for a modern interpretation of Betty’s “Around the World” dinner party from the season two episode, ‘A Night to Remember.’
Around the World Menu
Leg of Lamb with Mint Jelly (Dutchess County)
Get the gazpacho recipe:
- 2 cups tomatoes
- 1 green pepper
- 1/2 red onion
- 1 cucumber
- 2 cloves garlic
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/3 cup red wine
- 1/3 cup fresh basil
- Salt and pepper
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender while instructing Bobby to bang his head against the wall.
- Blend until smoother than your serial cheater hubster.
- Adjust flavors to your liking, then attempt to do the same with the people around you.
- Serve garnished with chives and vegetable slices. Make way to fainting couch.
- For roasted garlic gazpacho, replace the cloves of garlic with 1/2 head roasted garlic.

Pour yourself a drink and tuck in to the first course, Gazpacho and Rumaki. Like now, because Betty’s got a gun.
Have you ever made rumaki? I thought it would be a type of sushi or some cute little appetizer, but it turns out it’s bacon-wrapped chicken liver and water chestnuts. What the fresh hell, Bets? If I wasn’t making multiple courses, perhaps I would have tried veganizing chicken liver. But in a pinch, Upton’s Naturals bacon-wrapped Gardein chicken tenders did the trick.
