Smoked pork spring roll and celery root remoulade from Perl Catering
  • Smoked pork spring roll and celery root remoulade from Perl Catering
High up on my "secret lunches" list is the chicken salad from Perl Catering sold at the Meharry Bookstore. Buy three or four packets of saltines to scoop up the thick shreds of chicken and slivers of celery and cranberry, and you've got a quick, respectable $2.50 lunch.

I met the Perl people, Robert and Elizabeth Spinelli, at Iron Fork, or rather, I chatted with them while they ladled up little cups of divine caramelized-onion bisque and smoked pork spring rolls made with their own smoked pork. The rolls were spiked with cherry barbecue sauce and served up with a celery root remoulade. All together now: Mmmmm.

If you missed Iron Fork, or can't get to the Meharry Bookstore, you can catch their fare at Generous Helpings on May 19 at the Farmers' Market. The event benefits Second Harvest; get tickets here.
