1. The Domestic Diva

    I LOVE Zuni Cafe – one of my Fav SF restaurants (including Bix, Picco's & Coi). My brother is a chef and works with Bruce Hill up there and sent me to Zuni for lunch last year. Thanks for posting this recipe that they're so famous for! Also, I write a Los Angeles-based food and cooking blog called Domestic Divas if you're ever interested in checking it out!

    So! I made this, and it was lovely. I actually linked back to your blog because you have written the recipe so beautifully and I figured why butcher it. I thought the bread salad was good but needed less bread and more greens and pine nuts, scallions, and currants. I will change that for next time:)
