Last night I had an amazing dinner at ilili. The mezzes were overpriced – $9 for tabbouleh? – but so, so good. And the esmalieh bil ashta was almost beyond words – it more than made up for the freezing cold night.
This morning I found an homage to more homestyle Arabic food in my new Cooking Light‘s letter from the editor, who cheerfully informed readers that:
“Homemade falafel is a revelation – even reheated for lunch”. And yes, the bolding is in the original quote.
Um. I’m game to test the magazine’s falafel recipe, although skeptical about its lack of bekdounes. But revelatory falafel? Revelatory, reheated falafel?
I think the Cooking Light crowd needs to get out more.
