This is one of the best series that has been run in the Food Section. I've been looking forward eagerly each day to read the new recipe. I tried the quinoa recipe and it was fabulous. Thank you so much for including all of us who are vegetarian and avid foodies in such a comprehensive, exciting, and celebratory way.
