The Chef: Stacy
The Menu: An absolutely to-die-for spread of barbecue-sauce-smothered faux ribs, courtesy of Frankie's Falsies. Heated to perfection, these meat-ish treats were served with a huge, beautiful salad of mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, avocado, and crushed pecans straight from the holiday kitchen exploits of Stacy's mother. Finally, steak-cut french fries and sweet-potato fries, which were superbly seasoned completed the plate.
The Goods: That's right—that's a never-before-seen name gracing the chef category! Today we enthusiastically welcomed Ms. Stacy, our editorial assistant, into the club of cooks with her debut in the VNHQ kitchen. It was a delicious and auspicious beginning, and we's already hungry for next Thursday's lunch! Well, okay, maybe we're technically still full right now, but theoretically, we're super stoked. Hooray for Stacy!
