I've had my diploma since January, but it didn't seem official til I participated in Boston University's Commencement yesterday.
I was already celebrating thought. My trips to New York are not complete without a trip to Pure Food and Wine. Unbelievable raw food, which happens to be the perfect middle ground when vegans and Atkins aficionados join for a meal.
Starting with fresh fruit sangria to welcome the warming weather. Salad of frisee and radicchino w medjool dates, saffron meyer lemon confit, curry vinaigrette shaved onion and chestnut honey.Baby turnip carpaccio w morel mushrooms, english pea cream, spring herbs and pickled ramps.
Pumpkin Soup (yes still raw)
amazing pad thai with seaweed noodles!
Tomato w cauliflower masala filling. It also had a coconut curry sauce and a cucumber mint raita.
lemon cheesecake with strawberry rhubarb sorbet Trio of dark chocolate coated Indian spiced ice cream treats. First a chocolate cardamom coconut ice cream cone which was a million times better than any 'drumstick cones' I've ever had. My mind is stil boggled by how they made a raw ice cream cone! A pistachio ice cream sandwich-soft pistachio gelato sadwiched between two soft cakes. And a chai tea creamsicle. This trio blew any raw dessert, scratch that-ANY dessert I have ever eaten right outta the water.
It was a delicious celebratory meal, and I may come back just for a lunch of Indian desserts next time
