The Chef: Baguette Express, and Aurelia
The Menu: Vietnamese sandwiches, as we might have already said. These fluffy, crunchy rolls came stuffed with shredded carrots, sliced cucumber, cilantro, jalapeños, and saucy rice noodles. Aurelia made a delicious and vibrant marinated-kale salad, with steamed squash, chopped bell peppers, tomatoes, and avocado, which was a perfectly light companion to our bready subs.
The Goods: Since not everyone will be in the office tomorrow—her last official day—we celebrated Lisa's time as our editorial assistant extraordinaire today. She'd never tried a Vietnamese sandwich, so deciding what to serve for lunch was a snap. She's also mentioned, maybe once or twice, that she's kind of got a thing for tiramisu. Well, mention and ye shall receive around here. Check our incredible dessert from the Living Lights Culinary Arts Institute, and our lovely Lisa:
