I met Cheline for lunch at Locanda Verde in Tribeca. We had a great time as always and the food was good/fine, but nothing was as gastronomically memorable as the Sheeps' Milk Ricotta with sea salt and herbs. It was truly divine. Soft and creamy and the salt and herbs and virgin olive oil made it feel like eating was now a spa treatment.
The grilled bread that accompanied had that audible crunch followed by a falling backward onto down pillows feeling that went so well with this creamy sheepy elixir.
I will think of this dish and I will pop in here and sit and eat just it next time.
And if I don't finish it all (doubtful) I will take the rest home and give myself a facial using the bread as a buff pad.
