stewart, ford and those pecan pralines. (

below is the recipe of the famous pecan pralines tom ford made during his appearance on the martha stewart show yesterday. the recipe is allegedly one his grandma passed down. i would love to taste these, but honestly i am less interested in making them and more interested in what they wore: tom ford - his trademark black suit, unbuttoned white shirt, plus white pocket square. (even in the kitchen tom!?) martha stewart: a light blue hermes cardigan, ralph lauren jeans, and christian louboutin shoes with the red soles dyed black. (why ruin them martha? and better yet, who knew your conservative casuals were so high end. kudos!) and thank YOU fashion week daily, for reporting the important stuff.

Tom Ford’s Pecan Pralines

INGREDIENTS (Makes about 2 dozen)
2 cups sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup light cream
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 cups pecan halves

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a 3-quart saucepan, mix together sugar and baking soda. Add cream and place over medium-high heat. Cook, whisking occasionally, until golden brown and mixture reaches 235 degrees on a candy thermometer, 25 to 30 minutes. Add butter and pecans and mix together until butter has melted and mixture is well combined, about 1 minute. Using a tablespoon, drop mixture onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart; let cool completely. Store in an airtight container up to 3 days.
