You'll be hearing from the staff at FOOD52 every week in Too Many Cooks, our group column in which we pool our answers to questions about food, cooking, life, and more. It was a week of surprises -- from babies to errant cucumbers -- and gorgeous food here at FOOD52. You know, just like normal
I happened to have a conversation with Addie after she and Walker took this to school for lunch, and I can report that she really enjoyed it! Virginia ham, cucumbers, and MissGinsu's recipe for Sweet and Spicy Pickled Ramps make a wonderful sandwich on brioche bound together with a swipe of mayo, plus a Cara Cara orange for dessert. The pickles were leftovers from Amanda's Friday night dinner party, but it was more than just efficiency that prompted her to put them in the sandwiches. She says, "My kids love pickles and cucumbers so I try to find ways to tuck them into their lunches." What's in your lunchbox?
What are Walker and Addie having for lunch today? Today there's a Mediterranean theme: lentils and bulgur with caramelized onions, a stuffed grape leaf, cucumber salad, and labne. Dessert is Champagne mango -- those sunny yellow cousins of the larger red-and-orange mangoes you're used to -- cut into cubes. A great early spring lunch!
