Incredible Indian

The Chef: Jenny

The Menu: Oh my. Oh goodness. This was unquestionably the fanciest and most filling meal of the week so far. Remember how Jenny cooked for the monks when she lived in an ashram? Today, we ate like holy men. Her stellar two-dish meal consisted of basmati rice infused with turmeric, peas, and roasted cashews and then there was a curry. Oh wait, that's right, it was actually one of the most amazing curries ever made. No, really. Sweet potatoes and fresh broccoli swam in a thick, flavorful sauce of coconut milk, peanut butter, and pitch-perfect curry spices. The whole-grain bread was brought to us by one of today's guests, more on them in a moment. Maybe it's a good idea to just take a minute and admire the food again.

The Goods: Hooray for guests! Though we weren't quick enough to snap a group photo today, it's always nice to have friends stop by, especially when we can share food as fantastic as today's. So, on today's guest list we had Ms. Helen, a volunteer who's unstoppable behind the table at trade shows, and Matt Flanzer and Maria Brenner, a contributing writer and former VegBuzz columnist, respectively.
