Lobster roll sans bread from Amagansett-Montauk, New York

Our newest User of the Month is [drum roll, please]…noonie! She’s based in Brooklyn but has been getting around quite a bit, uploading food pics spanning Montreal and Greece, Paris and Tulum, Mexico. She shows a talent for finding lighter takes of regional classics, like the bread-less lobster “roll” pictured above, from Amagansett-Montauk, NY. (Guess there’s not much lightening up to be done about Cincinnati chili though, huh?)

The Food Memory of the Month we’ve selected—“Losing It,” by rsg10—details the personal experience of losing, and then regaining a year later, the senses of smell and taste. We can only imagine what that first meal post-surgery must feel like, with all senses intact: “Heaven on earth,” as rsg10 writes. It’s a brief reminder to be grateful for the simple ability to experience the deep pleasures we get from food.

The winners will be spotlighted on our Get Involved page for the next 30 days or so. Congratulations, and thanks for your contributions! Everyone else: Add a photo or story today, and you might be featured here next!
