Day 28: Four Weeks of Salad as a Meal Challenge, in which Our Bloggers Go Gaga for Garbanzos

Yesterday I had the distinct pleasure of enjoying a meal with Patricia Wells (and her two publicists—yes, she is that promotable). We went to Pesce, the seafood spot within Eataly, a massive market filled with the most authentic and hard-to-find Italian food products, established by Mario Batali and the Bastianich family. We let Patricia do the ordering, and were rewarded with five perfect starters that we all shared. (Is it blasphemy to admit we had no salad? However, the fritto might have qualified, considering Patricia’s broad definition of salad.) Never mind, because our fearless bloggers were most likely preparing and sampling Patricia’s recipes from Salad as a Meal even as we lunched like the leisure class.

Here are the posts from our Four Weeks of Salad as a Meal Challenge bloggers that have been written since the last wrap-up (the ladies went a little chickpea crazy, in a good way):

BLOGGER SPOTLIGHT: Forays of a Finance Foodie 

Originally born and bred in Texas, Finance Foodie is an ex-Wall Street banker and long-time food lover. She has assisted and attended hundreds of food events, including the James Beard Awards and the New York Wine and Food Festival. Ms. Foodie has also traveled the world cultivating her palate while promoting the importance of community involvement and the support of local business. FF currently lives in Boston, where she works in Finance by day, and morphs into a Foodie by night. Most recently she attempted to cook Patricia’s Egg Crepe but it seems to have come out more like a stir-fry. You can follow her on Twitter, too, if you like her unapologetic and sassy style.
