“My friend Susan Gutfreund is an excellent hostess. She decorates beautifully, too. And she can cook. In theatrical circles, one might call her a ‘triple threat!’ One Christmas Eve, she served me this incredible pudding. I’ve adapted it and have served it again and again, and the combination of the caramel and the coconut is unexpected and extraordinary.” –ALEX HITZ
