NOTES : From Chef Scott Cohen of The Restaurant at the Stanhope, Stanhope
Hotel. Scott Cohen, the former chef of New York's swank and trendy supper
club Tatou, can now be found at the Stanhope Hotel, across from the
Metropolitan Museum of Art. The New Jersey-born chef developed his casually
elegant style of cooking by working at Le Moulin de Mougins in the south of
France and the Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas. He describes his cuisine
as "American Provencal." Chef's note: "Cooking Light has adapted two of my
favorite recipesmy Roasted Vegetable Tart and my Polenta Cake With
Roasted Vegetable Vinaigretteinto one great, easy-to-make-at- home
version. It's wonderful hot out of the oven or served at room temperature."
