The Chef: Elizabeth

The Menu: Molé-smothered burritos filled with homemade seitan, home-style potatoes, and sautéed zucchini and red bell pepper. Wrapped in warm flour tortillas and doused with mashed avocado, these babies filled us right up. A vibrant salad of romaine, cherry tomatoes, and sliced yellow squash made for a fresh side to our saucy main.

The Goods: Yes, Elizabeth slaved over a hot stove all day to make this meal. No, in no way did she just cobble together leftovers from Philip Gelb's visit, which would totally be cheating. The origins of today's lunch aside, everything tastes better when it's wrapped in a tortilla, and it's always great to have fabulous fillings on-hand. Err, we mean it's always great to make fillings from scratch, even if it takes hours and not the roughly 30 minutes that this meal required in reality. Hey! Look over there! It's a giveaway!
