Martin Ginsburg's posthumous Supreme Court cookbook will allow you to eat as heartily as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Sure, Justice Ginsburg wasn't exactly young in her years when she first took her place on the bench. But that doesn't mean she subsisted on a high-fiber diet of prunes with a nutritious side of Ensure.
No, it actually seems that Justice Ginsburg ate better than most of us. Her late husband, Martin Ginsburg, was not only a tax lawyer but an amateur chef. Are you seething with culinary jealousy right now?
Justice Ginsburg is not only a coveted member of the Nine but also the lucky recipient of years of delicious foods. Some of her husband's recipes sound positively divine.
There's a recipe for something called a "Decadent Chocolate Bombe." There's also "Dense Chocolate Mousse with Pralines." Is your mouth watering right about now? I thought so.
The book is available in the Supreme Court gift shop. It's also available online on the Supreme Court Historical Society's website . The book's $24.95 price tag goes to support programs and scholarships.
BigLaw associates might crave one of Martin Ginsburg's recipes. But when you're billing about 11 hours a day, do you really have time to cook? You might have time to microwave a few frozen meals. You might even have enough time to run down to McDonald's to get a value meal.
You probably don't have enough time to whip up a delicious, home-cooked meal.
Getting a copy of Martin Ginsburg's Supreme Court cookbook, titled Chef Supreme: Martin Ginsburg, is probably still a good idea. You might not be able to actually enjoy the recipes. But think about it this way: you probably will never become a Supreme Court justice. But one day you might have enough time to eat like one.
