And for Dessert, Sea Salt Caramels

January 24, 2013

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. 

Today, lunch is sandwiches made with wheat bread from Whole Foods Market -- just wheaty enough and the perfect toasting bread -- with cream cheese, smoked salmon, and watermelon radishes. Sliced apple on the side (a nice clean flavor to go with the rich sandwich), and sea salt caramels for dessert, wrapped in old-timey fashion, which gets me every time!

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.

passifloraedulis January 26, 2013
Haha--yes. Do Amanda's kids trade for Lunchables? Etc.

This lunch looks delicious.
slidedtd January 27, 2013
They always have great lunches, but do they ever get any of the classics? PB and j? Dunkaroos??
Yessica April 1, 2013
Ha! yes that would be so interesting to read/see. My child is very adventurous but these kiddos eat great! I would also like to have the "lunch wear" they have for my lunch. It fits everything oh so perfectly.
