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.
I didn't mean for today's lunch to feel like a salad bar buffet, but sometimes these things happen. There's quinoa and tuna salad with lemon, capers, anchovy, and a secret ingredient: freshly grated horseradish. Next to this salad is cauliflower couscous. And in between, I wedged a few pea shoots for crunch. Dessert is cubed mango because this lunch was desperate for a flash of brightness.

Before starting Food52 with Merrill, I was a food writer and editor at the New York Times. I've written several books, including "Cooking for Mr. Latte" and "The Essential New York Times Cookbook." I played myself in "Julie & Julia" -- hope you didn't blink, or you may have missed the scene! I live in Brooklyn with my husband, Tad, and twins, Walker and Addison.
