Lovely Lo Mein

The Chef: Jenny

The Menu: Hello, rice noodles. Jenny's noodle dish today was both new and delish, which makes writing about it almost too easy. Perfectly cooked, flat rice noodles made a comfort-food bed for shaved carrots and whole green peas, and everything got a generous dusting of sesame seeds. To go with her lo mein main, Jenny whipped up some sesame tofu, which was salty and splendid. Did she stop there? No, of course not. Jenny's not a fan of the two-course lunch, so she also prepared a shiitake soup in rich broth.

The Goods: Maybe we say this every day, but we could easily have sat and picked at these noodles all day if there weren't this pesky business about publishing a magazine. Oh wait, we like that part too.
