Some food writers are treated to dinner at five-star restaurants, plied with high-end wines, and sent home with luxury gifts from the chef. Me? I was sent on assignment to the Taco Bell drive-thru. (Click over to see how I fared.)
Also, in other happy news, congratulations to Tegan Kaske. I tasked New Vegetarian author Robin Asbell with handpicking the winner of her cookbook in last week's giveaway. Robin was especially moved by Tegan's description of the salad she shared with her boyfriend in Paris.
Thanks sincerely to everyone who entered the giveaway. I loved reading about all your lovely, inspirational salads; they helped get me through a burrito-filled week.
