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 …

Lauren Shockey: Maple curls cookies (from a Joy of Cooking recipe), at home.

Rebecca Marx: Leftover peanut soup with red quinoa, at home.

Robert Sietsema: Duck liver pudding with duck pastrami in pink peppercorn sauce at Red Rooster (310 Lenox Avenue, 212-792-9001).

Chantal Martineau: The ricotta toast at 61 Local (61 Bergen Street, Brooklyn, no phone): Salvatore Bklyn ricotta, buckwheat honey, and crushed pistachios on rosemary focaccia.

Victoria Bekiempis: Pão de queijo, Portuguese cheese bun, from O Cafe (482 Sixth Avenue, 212-229-2233).
