Dear SOS : The Arizona Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix serves the most delicious stuffed French toast I have ever eaten. Would it be possible to get the recipe? Gayle Taylor La Canada-Flintridge Dear Gayle: We loved this take on French toast — small, mascarpone-stuffed rounds, lightly scented with cinnamon and fried, then topped with a bright orange compote.
