For the home cooks who don't have time to travel, Green Kitchen Travels and Olives, Lemons & Za'atar will take you on a round trip. Author of last year's Piglet winner Louisa Shafia's reflects on who captured the journey best.
The twins' lunches today echo a sentiment after our hearts: why should cookie consumption end with the holidays? Christmas has come and gone, but cookies remain a lunch go-to -- just the way it should be. Here's Amanda with the details: "Antipasti time! Porchetta, Serrano ham, olives, a few beans for fun, Italian crackers, and two kinds of cookies." Happy lunching!
It's a lunchbox cocktail party for Walker and Addie this week, with crudités, cheese, and olives all ready for the snacking. Here's Amanda with the specifics: I believe in the occasional snacky lunch. For this one I packed soppressata, Castelvetrano olives, Red Leicester cheese, ricotta salata, and purple carrots. To go with, whole wheat bread, a British cheese cracker, and roasted pumpkin seeds. (No Grüner Veltliner for this set, but we wouldn't pass on a glass to accompany this meal!)
