Indian Indulgence

The Chef: Aurelia

The Menu: Where to begin? The brown rice is always a safe bet, but Aurelia has a certain way of making it which must involve some sort of deal with the devil, because the texture of her rice cannot be beat. It simply can't be done; go on and try, we dare you. To top the goodly grain, she made an awesome spinach and tofu curry and a delicious chana masala. To green up the plate a bit, a simple, fresh salad of cucumber and avocado made this indulgent lunch complete.

The Goods: Not only did we get a filling and fantastic Indian-food spread today, we got a big bonus in the form of the lovely Allison Rivers Samson and her adorable daughter, Olivia. Allison arrived the way all guests should arrive: carrying a huge gift basket of baked goodies from her stellar bakery, Allison's Gourmet. We got to enjoy watching Olivia make fast friends with Fanny, our office canine constituent. Here's the dynamic duo with the ever-supportive Allison and Colleen:
