After the success of the NYC foodies’ get-together at Otto, we decided to meet again, but this time for a potluck. The dinner was destined to be good, since we all enjoy cooking and know our way around NYC restaurants. Rebecca, our gracious host, cooked pizza (with pizza stones to get the crust crispy!) and basil/almond pasta; Samantha brought edamame dip, red pepper dip, hummus, currant snack cake, chocolate walnut cake, chocolate candy bar cookies, roasted vegetable sandwiches and air-cured beef/mozarella/pesto sandwiches from Balthazar home; Susann brought broccoli and cornmeal upside-down cake (a tribute to Clotilde, who introduced us all) and Valrhona chocolate and jelly doughnuts from the Doughnut Plant; Lisa and her family brought lentil salad (recipe from a Moosewood cookbook); and I made my signature macaroons.
Thank you all for a good time, and I look forward to hanging out with more food bloggers at the next potluck!
