The Chef: Aurelia

The Menu: Keeping with the International theme from yesterday, Aurelia made a knock-out amazing lunch of uttappam, Indian-spiced potatoes, curried chickpeas, and a vibrant salad with grated carrot, cherry tomatoes, and avocado. For anyone who isn't familiar with the incredible rice- and lentil-flour pancake that is uttappam, familiarize yourself. This light, crispy, and ever-so-slightly bitter (think sourdough bread) yummy delight was a special treat for everyone in the office. Aurelia whipped these yummy puppies up using Gits Uttappam Mix, once again bringing a little South-Indian authenticity to our yummy lunch. Wait, did we say they were yummy? Because they were.

The Goods: Today's abundant sunshine was only made brighter by the lovely lunch Ms. Aurelia made. In what may be the best job perk of all time, we got to sit outside, munch delicious food, and chat with interesting, like-minded vegans—all in a day's lunch.

I love Uttappam! I actually have that mix in my cupboard as well as Dosa mix, another favorite of mine.

Sounds like a great day! I hadn't heard about uttappams before, but I may have to check them out now!
