Another night at Dinner Lab Baton Rouge! What a treat it is to share unfamiliar food with strangers. The comments and giggling bemusement provoked by Chef Tan Uckan’s Turkish spread (yogurt soup, bulgur salad, pea and poppyseed purée, and more delights) fell easily into conversation on local culture, mutual friends, foodie habits, and on and on.
Find some of my favorite photos from the evening in the gallery below.Low lights were a fun challenge (one quick-fix: holding the tabletop candles over my plate … calling upon my former altar server skills.)
