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: Cannellini beans, Tuscan-style, with EVOO and rosemary from a friend’s upstate farm, at home.

Chantal Martineau: Beef, pork, and cabbage dumplings at Eton on Vanderbilt (635 Vanderbilt Avenue, Brooklyn, 347-787-4335).

Lauren Shockey: Chamomile tea at home (following food poisoning!).

Rebecca Marx: Whole-wheat bread baked by my dad, at home.
