Let's kick off my return to food blogging with a bang, shall we? Perhaps by highlighting last night's Winter Foods potluck at 666?
There were no specific guidelines - only that attendees should prepare something seasonal (-ish, considering we are in the midst of a New York winter). And everyone was told that of the 9 of us, 4 or so would be vegetarians. Despite the dark, cold winter having descended upon us all, together we made a pretty colorful table! Clockwise from center we had: blood orange and grapefruit fennel salad with pomegranate and hazelnuts, vegetarian farroballs and tomato sauce, dal with spiced yogurt, chickpea leek salad with feta, polenta with mushrooms, kale cabbage salad with apples and cumin, Finnish avocado pasta, and risotto with beet and taleggio.
Recipes to come in the next few days!
