I, in fact, have tried "The Best Vegetable You've Never Tried" (i.e. rutabaga)... on New Year's Eve at Woodberry Kitchen, where we had a fabulous (and fabulously expensive) dinner. Jaime received rutabaga in gratin form to accompany his venison (i.e. Bambi), and I had a bite. It was good, so yeah, try some rutabaga. Also, I think Anna and Lauren shared a dish with farro, so apparently Woodberry Kitchen is all up inside the Times bidness.
