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 …

Sarah DiGregorio: Homemade root vegetable and chickpea tagine and couscous made with all the random stuff that’s leftover from last week’s CSA haul.

Chantal Martineau: Squid stuffed with lamb sausage washed down with lots of Pugliesi wine at Lupa (170 Thompson Street; 212-982-5089).

Robert Sietsema: Chicken livers with fried onions over rice at Cosmos Diner (395 Second Avenue; 212-679-1290).

Rebecca Marx: Pain d’Avignon (Essex Street Market, 212-673-4950) brioche covered with Les Moulins Mahjoub harissa, Landaff cheddar, and a sunny-side-over egg, at home.
