Patty Conroy of El Dorado Hills and her brother Gary Nyland of Carmichael want to re-create a meal using recipes from the now-closed legendary Coral Reef restaurant. It was their family’s all-time favorite restaurant; Patty and her husband, Tom, had their wedding rehearsal dinner there.
I’m looking for a recipe that I clipped from the Bee several years ago for a buttermilk coffee cake that came from a chef in Fort Bragg or Mendocino. I lost the recipe in 2008. I had it memorized before then, but can’t recall some of it now. I would appreciate it if someone could help me find this recipe. Thank you.
