New Year’s Eve: flavor and reflection
As New Year’s Eve approaches, Bostonians will look back over the last year and reflect — and Salt News is no exception. Some of our favorite food moments of 2009 have been the release of Julie & Julia, the opening of Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette’s Coppa in the South End, and the publication of Jennifer McLagan’s Fat: An Appreciation of a Misunderstood Ingredient. Particularly notable as well was Sel de la Terre’s Anniversary Harvest Dinner to Beat Hunger, which brought together seven local chefs to benefit hunger relief organization Share Our Strength. On New Year’s Eve, regale your own memories of 2009 over a delicious prix fixe dinner at Sel de la Terre (preview the menus for Long Warf, Natick, and Back Bay).
In the new year, we look forward to the 21st annual Boston Wine Festival in January, the opening of Barbara Lynch’s latest venture Menton in Fort Point, the re-opening of farmers’ markets the city over, and new flavors and events at Sel de la Terre. Resolve to check in with Salt News in January and throughout 2010 for more insider information about Sel de la Terre and general musings on food, wine, and the dining experience!
