Slow Dance Jam

It could be sweet …

On a dusky, late summer evening, a crowd of close to a thousand people mobbed the lawn in front of the Palermo Planetarium to practice one of romance’s finest inventions—the slow dance.

Yes, a salad bar. I never imagined that I would recommend a salad bar. When I think salad bar, I think hospital cafeteria. This salad bar, however, is totally different. This salad bar had roasted eggplant, roasted potatoes, bitter micro-greens, leaf lettuce, radicchio, curly endive, flageolet beans, chickpeas, lentils, pickled vegetables, and – get this – candied shaved fennel, yummmmm! And there was more.
