Foods I Have Loved

This post is part of Reverb 10, a project that provides daily prompts in the month of December to help you reflect on the past year and set your intentions for the year ahead. 

Artichoke crostini, Thanksgiving 2010

Today's prompt:

What did you eat this year that you will never forget?
What went into your mouth & touched your soul?
(from Elise Marie Collins)

Truffled mushroom lasagne at Christmas dinner, a la Pat, who swears the recipe comes from Cooking Light. Hallelujah!

My first vegetarian Thanksgiving - artichoke crostini, mushroom/escarole dressing, collard greens, oh my! A co-production between me and Christina Bailey, soon to be Tindale.

The food at Kripalu. Every. Single. Meal.

Lobster roll in Maine:

Swiss chard and ricotta malfatti with sage, butter and pecorino romano at Barbone in the East Village.

Scottish salmon, tomato, capers and tofu cream cheese on a sesame seed bagel from Russ and Daughters. Plain-old tofu cream cheese on a fresh sesame seed bagel from Essa Bagel.

Jordan's ginger creme cookies. His Guinness chocolate cake. His Everything He Bakes.

Pizza at John's. Joe's Pizza. Pizza made by my friend, Shakti. Pizza.

Pita with garlic, olive oil and parsley from Bedouin Tent.

Ice cream from here and especially here.

Tomato, mozzarella and homemade foccacia at John and Kris's house in Madison, Wisconsin.

And, of course, my morning oatmeal.

Clearly, I don't pay much attention to food...
