We asked, "What was in your lunchbox growing up?" Lunchables? Leftover pizza? PB&J? Foie Gras? Click through to see what they say.
Nick Sheley of Boa Bistro: After my parent's were divorced, all my dad kept in the fridge was bread and mayo ... I actually ate a lot of mayo sandwiches. To this day, I'm not all that picky. While I definitely appreciate good food and have learned how to prepare decent dishes, I could actually survive on BLTs.
Betty Alatorre of Paletas Betty: A lot of tortas - my mom stayed home when I was growing up in Mexico, and she loved to cook. It would be anything from ham torta to a jalapeno with cheese torta or beans and queso fresca or even like a scrambled egg torta.
Eric Osburn of Centurion: Well, first of all, it was a brown paper bag. I don't think we were too poor for a lunchbox, because those weren't that expensive, but I was definitely too rambunctious to keep one in good order. And it was typically peanut butter and jelly, which is why I don't really eat it anymore. Ten years straight of peanut butter and jelly for lunch every day - every once in a great while I got cold cuts.
Tracy DeWitt of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, Scottsdale: Chicken roll on white bread with mayonnaise. I hadn't thought about the chicken roll in a long time. Now I look at chicken roll, and I'm like, "That is the most scary looking processed meat. Why didn't she just give me sliced fresh turkey?!"
