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.

Many thanks to Joseph the Butler for recommending today's song!

  1. Yum yum yum, all around yum. Every dish looks so tasty. I'm particularly drawn to the charcuterie plate!

    And nothing like a little Peggy Lee to hop up my Sunday. I think I have to put the cd on now and listen to the whole thing.

  2. You really are a fantastic photographer! Will forward to some friends in Cambridge, in case they don't know of it. Hope you're having a lovely break.

  3. More delicious food. Oh I can't stand it!

    Sounds like you are having a smashing holiday.

    Love Denise

  4. Oh goodness, it all looks just too good!

  5. I could eat all day until I exploded,lol. But I know that's not possible. Richard
