we assembled the sandwiches on the table in my front yard.
Janette Sadik-Khan, transportation commissioner for New York, has been at Oxy for the last few days, inspiring all of us with the incredible work she does. If you missed her speech last night I recommend checking her out on your own-- she has completely transformed the streets of New York by turning them into art galleries and bicycle and pedestrian havens. We in Los Angeles have a lot to learn from her!
We at Well Fed were ecstatic to be invited to cater one of the lunches she spoke at!
The menu was:
3 different kinds of sandwiches (all on ciabatta):
Fresh mozzarella, roasted butternut squash and cilantro* pesto
Prosciutto, braised balsamic/dijon leeks and mozzarella
Lamb, fennel, mint and ricotta salata
Beet salad with arugula*, nasturtium flowers* and feta
Moroccan carrot salad
Cara Cara oranges, Blood Oranges, Oro Blanco Grapefrfuits
*Grown in the FEAST garden or foraged on campus
