Leftover Easter Ham Carbonara with Peas!
Hello! And, an extremely warm welcome to all of you new subscribers! I’m thrilled you’re here.
In case some of you missed it, this weekend, the incredible Emily Nunn who pens the hilarious and wonderful newsletter The Department of Salad, included not one, but two issues, featuring salads from Colu Cooks: Easy Fancy Food including Chicories with Tuna, Fennel, and Old-School Italian Dressing.

Everyone was so helpful, kind and eager to share their favorite places. There is a lovely sense of comradery. I’m excited to see how things continue to evolve there, the city and the people have a special energy.
