“I have never made this, and doubt I ever will, since I'm not a fan or raisins. The reason for this submission is that this was a favorite recipe from Chef Jerry O'Leary, who worked in the corporate dining room at Cantor Fitzgerald's in the World Trade Center. Jerry lost his life on Sept 11. Taken from Oct 2002 issue of "Bon Apetit."”
