For the past five days, I’ve been in Palm Springs and Indio for the 2012 Coachella Music Festival, a three day marathon packed with concerts, artwork, and overall craziness. This is my first year going to Coachella and I was completely blown away. Normally, I go to one concert every three years, so to see so many of my favorite bands and DJs in such a short period of time was a real treat. To best describe this experience, I’ve shared a small collection of Instagram photos and concert videos below.
I wish I had a good connection between Coachella and this Walnut Ricotta Crostini with Arugula and Soft-Boiled Eggs; however, I don’t. All I can really say is that this appetizer is super tasty. Sitting atop a layer of earthy walnut ricotta is small handful of arugula leaves simply dressed in lemon juice, and a rich, soft-boiled egg. Each bite is well-balanced with a satisfying contrast in textures. The toasted bread and arugula provide crunch while the ricotta and eggs lend a creamy smoothness. Be sure to serve these bites up with a fork and knife as they can be a bit messy to eat with just your hands. I’ve got the recipe for you after the Coachella recap.
