Name That Plant!
It’s the last week of summer, so to speak, with Labor Day around the corner. Hope everyone’s had a blast. This is one of the plants I’ve been looking forward to eating the whole time, and it’s just about ready to harvest here. Know what it is? I won’t give up any clues, but the key to the answer is to try to name the specific variety. Guess away!
And I’m so pleased about the gift I’ll be giving away to the first reader who comments correctly. It’s a free ride to next week’s Asian Feastival, a one-day culinary fair with more than twenty of the city’s best (authentic) Asian restaurants participating, a slew of programs led by chefs like Baohaus‘s Eddie Huang, or writers and experts like Salon.com‘s Francis Lam, and even a bike tour. Listen to Joe DiStefano (who’s hosting an edible tour that day) and the event’s founder Wendy Chan on Let’s Eat In today as they hopefully reveal more on it. (Or call in to the station if you’ve got questions!) This is going to be one hot ticket, a value of $55, and it comes with a copy of New Asian Cuisine at the door. It’s next Monday, September 6th, by the way — last-minute plans for Labor Day, perhaps.
