The Menu: A light spring vegetable risotto, with green beans, cherry tomatoes, corn, and pea shoots, aka the vegan option at a lunch power-hour conference.
The Goods: You might notice that this is not our typical huge green salad nor a meal from Gracias Madre. Shocking, I know! Today, Associate Editor Jennifer Chen and I headed downtown to take part in a luncheon. Yes, we are officially ladies who lunch. Why did we leave our beloved Mission neighborhood? Because one Colleen Holland, our associate publisher extraordinaire, delivered a rousing speech about social media! The event was put on by WFMA and EWIP, and we always relish the opportunity to converge with other publishing professionals. We basically ran back to the office after the lovely lunch, knowing that a huge box of Sticky Fingers goodies awaited us!
