The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday


Welcome to The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday, where we endeavor to remember the very best thing we stuffed down our gullets over the past 24 hours. Why? Because the only thing better than enjoying a meal is wallowing in the memory of one savored in the recent past.

Today’s fond reminiscences …

Robert Sietsema: Caramel bar coated in dark chocolate from Li-Lac Chocolates (40 Eighth Avenue, 212-924-2280).

Rebecca Marx: Peaches from Terhune Orchards split and sautéed face-down in butter with fried sage, thyme, and brown sugar, then baked in the oven.

Chantal Martineau: Striped German tomato from the Fort Greene farmers’ market, rough chopped and tossed with the slightest drizzle of olive oil and sea salt.

Sarah DiGregorio: Masala tofu at the in-laws.
