Cindy Gentry's Perfect Food Day

Cindy Gentry is a soft-spoken powerhouse in the Arizona world of food. She opened the Downtown Phoenix Public Market in February 2005 and is working on a Farm to Cafeteria program for Arizona. She loves Celtic music and got twin grandchildren just over a year ago. Lucky lady.

We asked Cindy to describe her perfect food day.

Lunch: a mix of salads from the Phoenix Public Market, especially including the spicy cole slaw, sweet potatoes and dates, and sautéed cauliflower, water

Dinner: Thai Sala's Thai tea, and sharing any vegetarian curry and / or noodle dish they have with my sweetie
