Interesting (food and otherwise) day. “Dinner” was a slow progression of snacks from late afternoon through evening, starting at an art fair preview with one friend, and on to happy hour and sort-of dinner with another.
Ate something new: fava leaves (you know, I had been wondering what other leaves would taste good given pea leaves’ deliciousness) with green garbanzo beans that I thought were out of season (they’re a winter favorite in north India).
Other noshes: a warm mixed-pea salad with peas, snow peas, snap peas, and pea tendrils (meh), porchetta over dressed radicchio with avocado (everything was delicious except the out-of-place avocado), olive oil and orange cake (moist and orange-y, really lovely), fried baby artichokes (semi-inedible), Comte fritters (bad cousin of fried mozzarella… greasy and salty), and finally chicken under a brick with polenta (best bite of the day).
Oof. That’s a lot of food, even spread over several people!
