Love in a Dish . . . And Other Culinary Delights by M.F.K. Fisher

“Love in a Dish . . . and Other Culinary Delights is an instructional manual on how to live, eat, and love brought together by prolific researcher and culinary enthusiast Anne Zimmerman. With great care she has selected essays that forgive, and celebrate, our lustful appetites, as in ‘Once a Tramp, Always . . . ‘ and “Love in a Dish.'”

This version is from the Great Food Collection from Penguin. The cover design is based on a Century pattern side plate by Eva Zeisel… how cool is that? (and, yes, I use receipts as bookmarks).

I can’t stop… I think I’ve listened to maybe 80 (ish) episodes this month.

TiMER is a movie about a world where you can get an implant to tell you the exact time you will meet your one true love… of course it’s not as simple as it sounds and things don’t go according to plan…

I’m a big Wes Anderson fan.  I’m still working my way through his filmography, and this is my most recent watch. The Darjeeling Limited is about three brothers who attempt to reconnect after a family tragedy by traveling across India by train.  It’s honest, touching, funny, and absurd, not to mention visually stunning, all at the same time (in typical Wes Anderson fashion).

I tried Chiles Rellenos (shown on the left) for the first time! It’s a poblano pepper stuffed with cheese, battered, and fried. Instant favorite!

That burn you get from peppers? It has a name.

NYC is getting a hot sauce tasting room complete with hot sauce sommelier.

I might eat way more fresh pineapple if I knew how to do this.
