Every week we take a peek inside the lunches of the luckiest kids in Brooklyn. Read on, suppress your jealousy, and get a little brown bag inspiration.
Lunch today is tuna and smoked mackerel sandwiches packed with celery, radishes, pickled ramps, parsley, lemon, and mayonnaise. I made smoked mackerel salad for my kids a week or so ago and it didn't go over that well (they like smoked salmon which I assumed was a gateway smoked fish to mackerel -- wrong!) so I thought I'd soften it with tuna. I also strategically gave them no other choices. Lunch is a sandwich today, end of story. It worked! For dessert, Tumbador's "dulce de chile" milk chocolate bar with cascabel chile and toffee rice crisps.
