One of the great things about being a chef is not only being able to cook for others but also for one's self. And on slower days--such as today--I do just that, so today I served food that I like to eat. There was salad, of course, and (labneh) thick yogurt, but also moudardara (rice and lentils), and kabees el lift (pickled turnip colored with beet). Yum.
