Sunday's picture and a song: Boston Beans and BostonZest

Sel de la Terre's roasted vegetable wrap: zucchini, portobello mushroom, roasted red pepper, sliced cucumber, chèvre goat cheese and pesto.

Like singer Peggy Lee, I've discovered that "they have no beans in Boston". But thanks to outings with Penny of BostonZest, I've come to learn that the city is a foodies' delight. Rather than write a post about our lunch at Sel de la Terre, a restaurant serving farm fresh, Provençal-inspired cuisine and sparkling wine from Massachusetts, I invite you to read Penny's review of her 2008 Thanksgiving dinner. After all, she's the widely acknowledged expert on Boston!

I do, however, have to say that I was so impressed by the service, setting and food at SDLT that I took our entire family there for lunch yesterday. It was just as good the second time around as it was the first. Next on my wish list is dinner at the exclusive chef's table in the kitchen at their sister restaurant, L'Espalier. Watching the chefs at work would be the ultimate culinary experience.
