Salad Tasting
Salad Tasting
Kenji whipped up some kale caesar salads for an upcoming Food Lab post. The response: complete salad destruction. (Guys, we don't get enough fresh greens in the office.) Here's Ben, Ed, and Paul (the newest addition to SEHQ) digging in.
Hambone, Meet Lily
Hambone, Meet Lily
New intern Lily met Hambone for the first time this week. She wanted to shower him with love, but it took a while for him to warm up to her. (He was pretty much okay with her by the end of the day, though. Hambone loves everyone!)
Yuba, Meet Lily

Yuba warmed up much more quickly.

Kenji sometimes spends the day testing recipes in his kitchen at home. This his how his assistants while away the hours between meals.

Feed me feed me feed me feed me
Feed me feed me feed me feed me
This is the view out Kenji's kitchen door every night as he prepares the dogs' dinners. "I CAN HAZ FOODZ NOW?" says Yuba. Hambone takes a more emotional route: "Look into my doleful eyes and see if you can deny me my supper for even one minute longer," he seems to say.

ALL the dog food

It was dog-food day this week at the López-Alt household. Both pups get a special diet, which Kenji prepares in huge batches and freezes. This month: turkey and kale stew!
