Blossoming Hills


In school lunch, the dieticians and staff often come up with fun titles and narratives to their dishes. Like this one: these noodles are evocative of early spring. The spongy, earthy mushrooms form the foundation, their colors conjuring the atmosphere of a slumbering winter landscape. The delicate pink ham evokes the gradually blossoming trees, the dark green from the spinach suggests slowly awakening hills. Using ingredients fresh and available all winter long, this dish is satisfying yet light on the stomach.
